Chapman blows save at Wrigley (0:33)

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Aroldis Chapman has blown his first save as a Cub. Leonys Martin's double into the gap plates two and puts the Mariners ahead 2-1 in the eighth.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Massive applause for Aroldis Chapman as he comes in for his second consecutive 4-out save as a member of the Chicago Cubs.

That will be it for Jake Arrieta after he walks the first two in the eighth and misses on eight of his last nine pitches. Terrific performance for the kinda-sorta struggling ace, now it's up to the Cubs' new monster bullpen to do their thing. Hector Rondon is in; Aroldis Chapman is up and getting loose.

The Cubs' Kris Bryant temporary stole home during a pick-off play at first, but the safe call was overturned by replay. Second reversal of the inning. The Cubs lead 1-0 after seven.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Dexter Fowler ruled safe at the plate, scoring on Javier Baez's grounder for the game's first run. Replay reversed the original out call on the field. The replays here in the pressbox were inconclusive, but a big break for the Cubs. Now it's up to Jake Arrieta and Joe Maddon's new bullpen.

Kris Bryant's single breaks up Wade Miley's no-hit bid. Cubs have runners on second and third for Javier Baez.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

We're through five quick innings and the Cubs righty-loaded lineup still hasn't managed a hit against Seattle lefty Wade Miley. Chicago's Jake Arrieta has been nearly as sharp, so we've got a scoreless pitcher's duel on our hands.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The Mariners have sandwiched a couple of singles around a double play against Cubs starter Jake Arrieta, who has been intent on establishing his fastball early. Arrieta went with the hard stuff on 83 percent of his pitches to the first 12 Seattle hitters.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Nobody is getting good swings so far today against the Cubs' Jake Arrieta or the Mariners' Wade Miley. Sixteen batters, no hits, six strikeouts all told. Only batter to get on base was Seattle's Leonsys Martin, who reached on a strike three wild pitch in the first.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears OLB Willie Young is all-smiles after signing a two-year extension late Friday night. Young said he was never consumed with the idea of an extension, but thanked the Bears organization for believing in him following a ruptured Achilles' tendon injury at the end of 2014. Young finished second on the team with 6.5 sacks last season.
