At the plate, he faced eight pitches from Kershaw and fouled off several of them, wearing out the three-time Cy Young Award victor. For a spectacular finish to his debut, he dived for a tag to grab Justin Turner at home.



With the score at 4-3, Juan Nicasio took over in the bullpen and finished the game. A six-inning performance against the A’s yielded two runs, but he was blown out by the Cubs in his third outing and surrendered seven hits and four runs in 2 1/3 innings.
