CHICAGO (AP) — Jason Heyward, Jason Kipnis and Willson Contreras homered and the Chicago Cubs overcame another shaky outing by closer Craig Kimbrel to beat the Kansas City Royals 5-4 Tuesday night for their fifth straight win.

Kimbrel took over to begin the ninth inning with a 5-2 lead, but struggled again and allowed two runs and two hits while getting only one out.

He’s yielded six runs in 1 2/3 innings in three appearances this season.

Cubs reliever Kyle Ryan closed it out for his first save, getting Bubba Starling to ground out to third baseman Kris Bryant with a runner on third to end it.

Kyle Hendricks tossed seven solid innings to help the Cubs improve to 9-2, their best start through 11 games since 2016 when they went on to win the World Series.

Hendricks (2-1) allowed two runs on seven hits, but walked none as he rebounded from a shaky loss last Wednesday at Cincinnati. Jeremy Jeffress pitched a perfect eighth to keep the

Adalberto Mondesi had three hits and an RBI for the Royals, who lost their fifth straight and dropped to 3-9.

Brady Singer (0-1), making his third major league start on his 24th birthday, allowed four runs — on two-run homers by Heyward and Kipnis —and five hits, while striking out eight.

Although Jorge Soler drove in a run with a sacrifce fly, the former Cubs player failed to reach base in ending a 25-game streaking dating to last Sept. 14.

Hendricks, who pitched a three-hit shutout against Milwaukee on opening day, gave up three straight hits to open the second. The Royals stopped a 26-inning scoreless drought at Wrigley Field.

Heyward’s shot to right in the bottom half, his first homer, put Chicago ahead 2-1.

Heyward added a single in the fourth, then came home when Kipnis added his drive to right-center to make it 4-1. It was the second homer for Kipnis, a native of suburban Northbrook, Illinois, who signed a minor league deal with the Cubs in February.

Contreras homered in the eighth.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Royals: Manager Mike Matheny confirmed RHP Brad Keller will make his first start of the season on Thursday against the Cubs at Kauffman Stadium. Keller, the Royals’ opening day starter in 2019, has been on the injured list since July 14 after testing positive for the COVID-19. Keller was 7-14 with a 4.19 ERA in 28 starts last year.

Cubs: LHP José Quintana remains on scheduled throw a two-inning simulated game Thursday at the team’s alternate site in South Bend, Indiana. Quintana had surgery to repair nerve damage on his left thumb last month after he cut himself washing dishes.

UP NEXT

Cubs RHP Yu Darvish (1-1, 2.70) takes the mound when the two teams meet in Kansas City on Wednesday night. Darvish tossed six scoreless innings against Pittsburgh last Friday for the win. Royals LHP Kris Bubic (0-1, 4.50) makes his second career start. He yielded three runs, all on Adam Engel’s homer, in losing his major league debut to the White Sox last Friday.

Demonstrators Hold Rally For Universal Basic Income In Boston Commons

BOSTON (CBS) – Through speeches, prayer and personal testimonies, a small rally was held on the Boston Common on Saturday to voice support for Universal Basic Income.

“Every single American citizen would receive a minimum income per month, so anywhere from $500 or $2000, depending on who you ask. And essentially, the point is that everyone should be guaranteed an economic floor,” said Melissa Lin of the State Lead Humanities First Collective about Universal Basic Income.

The purpose of the event to educate and build community when it comes to basic income.

“Having a stable income, having one that you are not worried about, provides some physiological security in a way that we highly underwrite,” Organizer Lewis Black said.

Organizers say this weekend there are more than 45 Universal Basic Income marches taking place around the world. Supporters say that in the midst of a pandemic, basic universal income for all could not have come at a more critical time.

“I think it made people more aware of how fragile their own personal circumstances are,” Black said.

Lin added that she thinks “the pandemic has really demonstrated that the way that our society and the way our government works isn’t working for us, and so we need to really start to put forward the fact that universal basic income could be one of the key ways for us to start fixing the problems we’ve been experiencing.”
