LEADING OFF: Cubs-Pirates in Williamsport, CC faces Indians

A look at what’s happening around the majors today:

LITTLE BIG LEAGUE

Kris Bryant and the Chicago Cubs take on Josh Bell and the Pittsburgh Pirates in prime time at the MLB Little League Classic in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Cubs left-hander José Quintana (10-7, 4.11 ERA) is 6-0 in eight starts since his last loss on June 22. Mitch Keller (1-1, 7.94) will make his second start for Pittsburgh since being recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis. The 23-year-old rookie picked up his first major league win in four starts Monday against the Angels.

For those of us who get a kick out of neutral-site games.
