CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber was scratched with right rib soreness before Wednesday's game against the Cincinnati Reds.

A Cubs spokesman says Schwarber, who was scheduled to bat second in the lineup and play left field, will have precautionary tests.

Chris Coghlan, originally batting third and playing right field, moved up to the second spot and shifted to left field. Austin Jackson was inserted into the lineup in right field, batting sixth.


Greinke outduels Bumgarner in 2-1 win

LOS ANGELES (AP) Nothing the San Francisco Giants did fazed Zack Greinke. It was a hole on the mound where he pushes off with his right foot that bothered him.

It grew bigger as the game went on, causing Greinke to tweak his ankle and draw a visit from the trainer and the grounds crew. He ended up leaving a tad early, but still beat Madison Bumgarner and the Giants 2-1 on Tuesday night for the Los Angeles Dodgers' second win over their rivals in the same day.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Miguel Sano has been playing with a strain of his right hamstring, a mild injury that's still a concern for the Minnesota Twins.
