Cubs Take Game One
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Kris Bryant turned his tiebreaking two-run double into a Little League homer with some heads-up baserunng, and the star rookie had three hits and three RBIs Monday night to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bryant's double off the base of the left-center field fence in the seventh inning snapped a 1-all tie. He scored on the play when advanced to third base on the throw home, and he raced across the plate when catcher Francisco Cervelli missed the throw for an error. Bryant, who tied the game with an RBI single in the fifth, is 6 for 14 (.429) with four RBIs in four games since his much-anticipated callup from Triple-A Iowa on Friday. He was a spring training sensation, hitting nine home runs in 40 at-bats for the Cubs. Jake Arrieta (2-1) allowed only one run and three hits in seven innings for the win while striking out seven and walking none.

Fan Hit By Baseball
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Pirates game against the Chicago Cubs was delayed 23 minutes Monday night after a female fan behind home plate was hit in the back of the head by a ball off the bat of Starlin Castro. The Pirates said in a statement the woman was conscious and alert when she was taken out of the seating are on a stretcher. She gave a thumbs-up gesture to nearby fans before being taken to a hospital. The woman was standing in the first row behind home plate with her back toward the field when Castro fouled a ball straight back against the protective screen. The ball was hit with such force that it struck the fan.

Penguins Lose Game Three
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Henrik Lundqvist stopped 23 shots and the New York Rangers regained control of their first-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins with a 2-1 win in Game 3 on Tuesday night.
Carl Hagelin and Chris Kreider scored for New York, which dominated for two periods then held on late to take a 2-1 series lead. Game 4 is Wednesday in Pittsburgh. Patric Hornqvist scored his third career playoff goal for the Penguins, but Pittsburgh couldn't overcome another slow start. Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves, but the Penguins couldn't back up their strong play in Game 2. The Rangers led the NHL in road wins during the regular season and shut down Pittsburgh stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to reclaim home-ice advantage.
