Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals' bullpen got plenty of big outs. Ryan Zimmerman took care of the offense. Zimmerman homered twice, then doubled home the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning as the Nationals ended their nine-game losing streak at St. Louis, beating the Cardinals 4-3 Wednesday night.
Kris Bryant hardly had time to enjoy his latest home run. The rookie third baseman hit a tying drive in the eighth inning, then made a two-out error in the ninth that set up Joey Votto's three-run homer and lifted the Cincinnati Reds over the Chicago Cubs 7-4 Wednesday. ''It's tough,'' Bryant said.
Lance Briggs, a seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker who helped the Chicago Bears reach the Super Bowl, plans to retire. Briggs said Wednesday afternoon during CSN Chicago's telecast of the Cubs' game against the Reds at Wrigley Field that he is ready to call it a career. ''If somebody called me and they said, 'Hey Lance, we'd like you to come play football,' I'm gonna say I'm happily gonna retire,'' Briggs said.
