CHICAGO (AP) Brad Brach and the Chicago Cubs have finalized a one-year contract that guarantees the reliever $3 million and could be worth $8 million over two seasons.Brach gets a $1.65 million salary this year and could earn $1.35 million in bonuses for days on the active major league roster: $350 Johnny Damon Jersey ,000 for one, and $500,000 each for 120 and 150.Chicago has a $5 million team option for 2020 under the deal announced Monday. If the Cubs decline, Brach has a $1.35 million player option with a $100,000 buyout.The right-hander had 12 saves and a 3.59 ERA in 69 games for Baltimore and Atlanta last season. He posted a 1.52 ERA over 27 appearances following a trade to the Braves.Brach debuted with San Diego in 2011 and made an All-Star team with Baltimore in 2016. He has a career 3.08 ERA and 33 saves. The Cubs needed bullpen help with closer Brandon Morrow likely missing the start of the season while recovering from elbow surgery. PHOENIX (AP) Up six runs and trying to end their longest losing streak since late June-early July, Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo wanted to make sure a win was in the bag.So Lovullo, after starter Robbie Ray pitched 6 1-3 scoreless innings, had his top two setup man work an inning each to close out the San Diego Padres 6-0 Tuesday night.It didnt make a lot of sense Masahiro Tanaka Jersey , I know it was 6-0, Lovullo said. We needed to win this game, and those are the guys that have been doing it all year long, and I just felt the importance of winning right now.Ray struck out 10 and pitched two-hit ball as the Diamondbacks ended a four-game losing streak.The Diamondbacks skid had knocked them out of the NL West lead.Ray (5-2) got his first win at Chase Field since March 30, his first game of 2018 hed been 0-1 in his previous six starts at home. He won back-to-back starts for the first time since last September and is 5-0 in his last eight starts against the Padres.It was huge to come out today and get the win, Ray said. My fastball command was about as good as its been all year.It just feels effortless. Every pitch has a purpose, Ray added.Joey Lucchesi (7-8) gave up two runs and three hits in five innings. Hes winless in five career starts against Arizona.Nick Ahmed hit an RBI triple and scored on Ketel Martes sacrifice fly for a 2-0 lead in the second.I left one fastball in the middle for Ahmed, which allowed the triple Paul O'Neill Jersey , Lucchesi said. After that I told myself calm down. I made an adjustment and kept it to two runs the rest of the game.Ray hasnt been consistently sharp this season, but he cruised through the first four innings without allowing a runner and striking out seven. Ray got help from a diving catch in center field by A.J. Pollock, which took a hit away from Luis Urias.The Padres got their first hit of the game, a single from Franmil Reyes, with two outs in the fifth. They had runners on the corners in the sixth with two outs, but Ray struck out Hunter Renfroe to end the inning.Marte manufactured a run on his own after infield single in the Diamondbacks four-run seventh. Reliever Robert Stock threw wildly on a pickoff attempt to allow Marte to get to second base, and Marte stole third. He scored on a passed ball, and pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso had an RBI single.It was nice to push across some more runs and put the game away http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , Descalso said. To bounce back the way we did, very clean game, pitched the ball well, hit the ball well.The Diamondbacks got another run when Padres catcher Austin Hedges couldnt hold on to the ball after tagging Descalso trying to score on Pollocks sharp single. Paul Goldschmidt added an RBI single.ISSUE WITH UMPPadres manager Andy Green came out of the dugout to discuss the call at home involving Descalso and Hedges, who was charged with a missed catch error. But before he could ask for a replay review, he was told time had run out on him to do so.The manager felt third base umpire Angel Hernandez, the crew chief, didnt make a good effort to approach Green to see if he wanted a review.The way that works is you signal within 10 seconds http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , around 30 seconds someone is supposed to walk to your dugout and say We need a decision, Green said. Makes no sense on any level but he is offering me some sort of opportunity to hear his voice when music is being played and he is yelling at me across the field. That is not the way its supposed to work. I am just looking for a little professionalism and to me that was not that.DIAMONDBACKS MOVESThe Diamondbacks recalled INF Ildemaro Vargas from Triple-A Reno and RH reliever Matt Andriese from Single-A Visalia before Tuesdays game. Andriese had been with the Diamondbacks until Aug. 28 after he was picked up in a trade with Tampa Bay. Starting pitcher Zack Godley, who worked in Mondays game, was placed on the paternity list to return home for the birth of his first child.MEJIA DEBUTSThe Padres called up catcher Francisco Mejia from Triple-A El Paso before Tuesdays game. Mejia, considered one of San Diegos top prospects, struck out as pinch-hitter in his San Diego debut.UP NEXTPadres: The Padres get Wednesday off. Then LHP Eric Lauer (5-7) faces the Cincinnati in the first game of a four-game series.Diamondbacks: After a day off Wednesday, RHP Zack Greinke (13-9) opens a four-game series against Atlanta on Thursday.
