AROUND THE HORN

Baltimore Sun - - BASEBALL -

Cubs: LHP Jon Lester pitched 72⁄ in­nings of no-hit ball be­fore set­tling for a three-hit­ter and his sec­ond com­plete game of the sea­son, help­ing the siz­zling Cubs beat the Giants 2-1 Fri­day to move a sea­son-high 40 games over .500. The Giants are a ma­jor-league-worst 15-29 since the All-Star break. C David Ross and OF Dex­ter Fowler had RBIs for the Cubs.

Dodgers: LHP Clay­ton Ker­shaw is sched­uled to pitch in a mi­nor-league re­hab game for Class A Ran­cho Cu­ca­monga on Satur­day. Dodgers man­ager Dave Roberts said Ker­shaw will throw three in­nings or around 50 pitches, with LHP Brett An­der­son to fol­low. An­der­son is on the dis- abled list with a fin­ger blis­ter. Ker­shaw, who has been side­lined for more than two months with a her­ni­ated disk in his back, came out of a sim­u­lated game at Dodger Sta­dium on Tues­day in good or­der af­ter two in­nings.

An­gels: OF Mike Trout was hit­ting in his usual No. 3 spot for the An­gels two days af­ter he was in­volved in a mul­ti­ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent. Trout, who de­clined to go into specifics, re­port­edly crashed his Mercedes into the back of a sta­tion­ary car on a Los An­ge­les free­way while traf­fic was stopped due to a backup from an­other ac­ci­dent. Trout’s car was left dis­abled and oc­cu­pants of other ve­hi­cles in­volved had to be taken to the hos­pi­tal.

Mets: RHP pitcher Ja­cob deGrom is likely to miss his next sched­uled start be­cause of sore­ness in his right fore­arm. The team made the an­nounce­ment dur­ing the first in­ning of its game against the Na­tion­als. A pre­cau­tion­ary MRI per­formed on de Grom ear­lier in the day was neg­a­tive.

Car­di­nals: 1B Matt Adams was activated off the 15-day DL be­fore the start of a week­end se­ries against the Reds. Adams, who has been side­lined since Aug. 10 with in­flam­ma­tion in his right shoul­der and missed 19 games, was bat­ting .353 with run­ners in scor­ing po­si­tion — fifth in the Na­tional League — when he went on the DL.
