CHICAGO (AP) – Kris Bryant homered in his return to the lineup and Alec Mills pitched seven effective innings, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the Kansas City Royals 2-0 for their fourth consecutive win.

Javier Báez had a sacrifice fly and a nice play in the field as NL Central-leading Chicago improved to 8-2 for the first time since 2016.

Bryant also doubled in the first after missing two games with a stomach ailment.

Kansas City wasted a solid performance by Danny Duffy, who pitched six innings of one-run ball.
