Jacoby Ellsbury's easy first-inning trip around the bases - he walked, stole second without a throw, stole third on a pitch that went to the backstop and scored on Brian McCann's double -- came at a price. The Yankees centerfielder apparently injured himself slamming on the brakes between third and home on the second stolen base and left the game at the start of the second inning. Aaron Hicks moves from RF to CF and Dustin Ackley is now playing right.

Terry Collins acknowledged that Rene Rivera starting on Friday is related to trying to halt the running game against Noah Syndergaard. "He's known to have a real good arm," Collins said. "We'll see if he can help out." Base stealers are 8-for-8 against Syndergaard in his past two outings.

Anthony Rizzo had no doubts about his home run on Friday though it hugged the foul pole in right and needed to be reviewed. His was just one of four the Cubs hit in an 8-6 win over the Nationals on Friday.
