News flash: Cubs stay classy in 'Anchorman' road trip spoof

Now Chicago is off to the West Coast for a six-game trip beginning with a series in Los Angeles against the Dodgers on Friday. Cubs and Giants notched up at two in the bottom of the fourth. So it was especially costly when Denard Span got picked off first base to kill a potential rally in the fifth inning. Once the first pitch to Rizzo was thrown, the Giants were out of time to challenge.

Dodgers left-hander Ryu Hyun-Jin, in his first relief appearance, struck out two in four scoreless innings and earned the save.

The Pirates came from two runs down with two outs in the ninth to tie the game on Jose Osuna's two-run single to force extra innings.

As this Kentucky baseball team is one of the top offenses in the SEC, this week's performance at the plate is disappointing. There isn't a lot they can do at this point but once again it was shaky with Becker committing three errors at third today.

Chicago Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr. departs for the team's road trip wearing a suit based on the character Ron Burgundy in the Anchor Man movie, after a baseball game against the San Francisco Giants Thursday, May 25, 2017, in Chicago.

He's known for coming up with themes on road trips.

Because it's among the many things they do under manager Joe Maddon, the Cubs recently embarked on a road trip clad in outfits inspired by the 2004 comedy "Anchorman", to highly amusing results.
