7/2 Morning Marquee: Cubs win first Fenway series since 1915


One day after Jake Arrieta flirted with a no-hitter, Edwin Jackson was nearly as good, allowing just one run over six innings of work against the Red Sox, leading the club to its first series win at Fenway Park in 99 years.

A replay in Los Angeles led to a 7-2-4 triple play turned by the Indians, the Minnesota Twins have placed Joe Mauer on the 15-day disabled list and the Toronto Blue Jays signed two first-round draft picks earlier this week.

In Tuesday night action, Tim Lincecum was sharp again in his first start since tossing a no-hitter and the Pirates rallied late to top the Diamondbacks. In clubhouse news, Ken Rosenthal reports that some Nationals’ veterans resent Bryce Harper for his fame, putting first-year skipper Matt Williams in a precarious situation.
