Former Brewer Brandon Kintzler was charged with the loss for the Cubs after yielding the game-winning hit.

Baez, 26, has hit.281/.316/.532 with 29 home runs this season.

Baez is also a central figure in the Cubs' defensive shifting, as he was nearly always moving from the traditional shortstop position to shallow right field against the likes of Christian Yelich and other left-handed hitters.

The Cubs are already missing two-time All-Star shortstop Javier Baez, who is out indefinitely with a hairline fracture in his left thumb. He fell to his knees, conserving his head, but at final was once in a position to compose himself and stroll to first flawed accompanied by manager Joe Maddon and two trainers.

Chicago Cubs (76-64, second in the NL Central) vs. Other guys have to take care of their component of the game also.

"That's a big turning point, anytime you give a three-run homer", Lester said. Cubs are 3-0 in his last three starts.

"We definitely have a lot of other good names", Maddon said.

The struggling Addison Russell figures to slot in as Chicago's primary shortstop until Baez returns. "It's not like we're just a one man band".

Cubs: 3B Kris Bryant got the game off. The left-hander scattered six hits and four walks in six shutout innings Tuesday, working out of three bases-loaded jams while striking out nine in Chicago's 6-1 victory over Seattle.

With the game tied 1-1 in the top of the 8th inning, the Cubs worked the bases loaded against Junior Guerra. Tyler Austin should have been the first out, but he reached on a throwing error from Russell.

Maddon said he's going to lean on his bench to keep the Cubs charging toward the NL playoffs. "I actually think his arm strength looks better". "There's all that, the things that he does to pick us up when things aren't going well - stolen base, the extraordinary slide, the play, the home run".

Beyond his impact on the field, the Cubs are losing a special player in Baez - whom Willson Contreras called "the heart of this team".
