Chicago Cubs closer Craig Kimbrel shut the door on the Braves Thursday night to earn his first save as a Chicago Cub.

Scott Kingery Staying Hot

Philadephia Phillies utilityman Scott Kingery has been swinging a hot bat with everyday playing time. He's hit .286 with four homers over the last two weeks in 49 at-bats.
