The Chicago Cubs are getting the 2016 National League MVP back right before the stretch run.According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times Jorge De La Rosa Jersey , Kris Bryant finished a minor league rehab assignment Thursday and is expected to be activated for Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.Bryant hasn't played for the Cubs since a July 23 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks because of a shoulder injury.Bryant was also out from June 22 through July 10 and has played just 76 games this season.He is slashing .276/.380/.474 with 11 home runs and 44 RBI in those contests, which is below his normal production. He won the 2015 National League Rookie of the Year with 26 home runs and 99 RBI, captured the 2016 NL MVP with 39 long balls and 102 RBI, and then drilled 29 homers last year while helping Chicago reach the playoffs all three seasons.Since Bryant last played, the Cubs added Daniel Murphy to their formidable lineup. Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, Murphy, Ben Zobrist, Kyle Schwarber and Willson Contreras represent a group that can do serious damage in the postseason, and that offensive depth is a primary reason the team survived a setback to arguably its best player.Chicago sports a 78-54 record, which is the best mark in the National League and has it 4.5 games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central.However http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-taijuan-walker-jersey , the division is far from wrapped up considering the Cubs play the Brewers six times in the first two weeks of September and finish their season with three games against the Cardinals.Having Bryant to anchor the lineup and patrol the hot corner in those contests and then the postseason鈥攕hould Chicago qualify鈥攚ill bolster the Cubs' chances to capture their second World Series crown in three years. LOS ANGELES (AP) — With nothing left to play for, the San Diego Padres are in spoiler mode.And it feels good.Hunter Renfroe hit a two-run homer, Freddy Galvis added a solo shot and the last-place Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 on Friday night in front of a sellout crowd of 52,458.“This is a crowd you don’t play in front of every single night,” third baseman Wil Myers said. “It was pretty cool to watch guys go out there and really compete.”Coming off a big three-game sweep of Colorado, the Dodgers’ NL West lead was trimmed to 1 1/2 games over the Rockies, who won 6-2 at Arizona.“Can’t take anyone for granted,” losing pitcher Ross Stripling said.San Diego had dropped five in a row against Los Angeles. It was the Padres’ first win over the Dodgers since July 10 at Petco Park.Rookie Eric Lauer (6-7) pitched five innings of one-run ball in his first win since that July day.“We want to be the spoilers for them just to do it,” Lauer said. “Just because it’s them. It’s definitely cool getting a win in that environment.”Lauer struck out Manny Machado with runners on first and second to end the fifth.“Yeah, I was just feeling good and it was kind of like the amped up part of the moment,” Lauer said.Kirby Yates allowed Machado’s two-out RBI single in the ninth before striking out Joc Pederson for his 10th save.“We just couldn’t take advantage when we had runners in scoring position,” Machado said.Renfroe slugged his 24th homer on a 3-2 pitch with one out in the fourth Jarrod Dyson Jersey , putting the Padres ahead 2-1 after Franmil Reyes‘ leadoff single against Ross Stripling (8-5).Galvis homered into the lower right-field seats leading off the seventh, making it 3-1.The Dodgers threatened in the seventh and eighth only to come up short.They cut their deficit to 3-2 in the eighth.

Justin Turner flied to left to end the threat.The Padres extended their lead to 5-2 in the ninth against John Axford.

He struck out four and walked two.TRIPPIN’Yates grounded out to the shortstop in the ninth and while in an all-out dash to first he tripped and fell, sliding on his belly. The move cracked up his teammates. Yates then went out and pitched the ninth.“I’m more impressed he didn’t lose composure after that. Most people are not able to laugh that off,” Green said. “He’s great at laughing at himself.
