DETROIT (AP) — It didn’t look or sound like a rebuilding team Luis Severino Jersey , holding on for a win against a contender. Shane Greene had a game-ending strikeout against Jason Heyward — with fans roaring on their feet — to help the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Tuesday night.“Great atmosphere with a good team coming in here,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. .“It was good stuff, and a big win.”Jordan Zimmermann (6-5) pitched six effective innings for Detroit, continuing Chicago’s misery.The NL Central-leading Cubs were held to one run via homer for the fifth straight game, dropping the last three in the offensive slide. This time http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-aaron-hicks-jersey , Anthony Rizzo led off the sixth with his 19th homer, falling to his knees as he drove Zimmermann’s first pitch over the wall in right.But that was it once again for Chicago.“I can’t really find too much wrong with how we are playing,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “The defense has been great and we’re pitching well. We’re just not hitting.“Once a game, we hit our home run and then we don’t take advantage of our other chances.”Help could be on the way after the Cubs acquired Daniel Murphy in a trade with Washington before the game. The three-time All-Star missed the start of the season because of knee surgery, but is hitting .340 (35 for 103) since the All-Star break.Drew VerHagen, Joe Jimenez and Greene combined for three innings of one-hit relief, closing out Detroit’s second win in seven games.The Cubs had one last chance when Albert Almora Jr. drew a two-out walk in the ninth. But Greene struck out Heyward swinging to finish off a 10-pitch at-bat Aaron Judge Jersey , earning his 27th save in 30 chances.“It was fun, mainly because I came out on top,” Greene said.Detroit got both of its runs in the first inning against Kyle Hendricks (9-10), who allowed 10 hits and walked one in seven innings.Former Cubs prospect Jeimer Candelario doubled and scored on Nicholas Castellanos‘ groundout. Victor Martinez, who finished with three hits, added a two-out RBI single.“I didn’t bury the last pitch to Victor Martinez and he went and got it,” Hendricks said.NO PRESSUREMaddon plans to have a face-to-face meeting with Murphy Gleyber Torres Jersey , hoping to find out how much he can play and trying to diffuse expectations, before putting him in the lineup Wednesday at Detroit.“I’m not asking for Daniel to come in and all the sudden be this force,” Maddon said. “When you get a guy like this of course the natural assumption is he’s going to take you to the promised land and I don’t want him to think that way.”TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: RHP Yu Darvish will miss the rest of the season with a stress reaction in his right elbow. … SS Addison Russell was scratched with a sore shoulder. “He’s been playing through it for a while so we backed off,” Maddon said.Tigers: RHP Michael Fulmer, on the DL since July 20 with a strained oblique, is scheduled to throw 70 pitches somewhere on Friday. Gardenhire would not say where Fulmer will have the outing. … OF JaCoby Jones is expected to have a three-game rehab assignment this week. He has been on the DL since Aug. 13 with a strained right hamstring.UP NEXTCubs LHP Jon Lester (13-5, 3.72 ERA) and Tigers LHP Francisco Liriano (3-8 Tyler Austin Jersey , 4.72) close the two-game series. Lester is 2-6 with a 6.05 ERA in 11 starts in the regular season against Detroit. Thearon W. Henderson/Getty ImagesSan Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey is dealing with a hip injury but will continue to play for now.Manager Bruce Bochy said as much, per Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area. Pavlovic noted the "Giants are confident he can do further damage by playing for now."This comes afterJohn Shea of theSan Francisco ChroniclenotedPosey "faces likely hip surgery that would cut short his season."Bochy revealed there have been discussions about the surgery when he said, per Shea: "I'll be honest with you. We have discussed that. We talked about it. Nothing's been determined yet. Because we want him ready for next year. We're discussing that now."Giants executive vice president of baseball operations Brian Sabean said, "I'd say that that's a safe assumption," when asked about the surgery happening soon.Posey has served as a cornerstone piece of San Francisco's roster for nearly a decade. He's helped lead the franchise to three World Series titles, was named the National League MVP in 2012 and leads all catchers in WAR since his 2009 debut, per FanGraphs.The 31-year-old Georgia native has also remained mostly durable despite the physically demanding position. He entered 2018 having played at least 140 games in six straight seasons. He missed this year's All-Star Game while recovering from thehip injury Clint Frazier Jersey , though.Nick Hundley will slide into the starting lineup and figures to receive the lion's share of the playing time behind the dish.Ultimately, the Giants are going to need a late-season surge to earn a playoff berth in the National League. Being without Posey for any type of extended period would be a major blow to those efforts given his all-around on-field contributions and clubhouse leadership.
