Recruit Alex Avila was the hero as the Chicago Cubs prevailed against the Toronto Blue Jays in MLB on Sunday.
Alex Avila felt for Raffy Lopez. Avila capped Chicago's three-run 10th inning with a two-run single, and the Cubs swept the Toronto Blue Jays with a wild 6-5 victory on Sunday. With two outs and the bases loaded, Avila lined a base hit into right field against Roberto Osuna (3-4).
Rene Rivera got right down to business on his first day with the Chicago Cubs. The veteran catcher joined the Cubs on Sunday and started their 6-5, 10-inning victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. ''I'm ready any time they need me,'' Rivera said before his successful debut.
