NEW YORK (AP) — The Chicago Cubs tied a major league record by turning seven double plays Friday night, including a game-ending effort by rookie third baseman David Bote on a grounder by David Freese to finish off a 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.The Cubs got six double plays on grounders — five with Cole Hamels pitching — and one on a line drive. The Elias Sports Bureau said the Cubs became the third team in big league history to turn seven DPs in a nine-inning game.Pittsburgh put runners on first and second in the ninth before Jesse Chavez got Freese to ground to Bote. Having hit a game-ending grand slam last Sunday night to beat Washington 4-3, Bote again was in the right place to cap off a win. Bote stepped on third and threw to first base to end it.Hamels (8-9) pitched seven solid innings. Kyle Schwarber hit a home run in the second off Trevor Williams (10-9).

SEATTLE (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is appealing his two-game suspension for fighting and inciting a benches-clearing incident against San Francisco.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed Friday that Puig was in the process of appealing. Puig was suspended Thursday by Major League Baseball after he took a swing at Giants catch Nick Hundley in the seventh inning of the Dodgers' 2-1 home loss Tuesday. Hundley was fined.Puig will be eligible to play during the appeal. He was not in the starting lineup for Friday's series opener in Seattle, but Roberts said he would have Puig in the lineup in the next few games.The fracas started when Puig swatted his bat in frustration after fouling off a pitch from Tony Watson, and Hundley said something to the slugger while still in his crouch. Puig turned around and walked toward Hundley, the catcher stood up, and they argued face to face before Puig shoved Hundley twice.That brought players out of the benches and bullpens. Puig and Hundley were momentarily separated, but Puig ducked around teammates, coaches and Roberts before reaching back to hit Hundley. He smacked Hundley with an open hand across the front of his catcher's mask.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

WASHINGTON (AP) — Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Urena is appealing his six-game suspension for intentionally hitting Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Braves with a pitch.Urena was in uniform Friday and Marlins manager Don Mattingly didn't rule out using him this weekend against the Washington Nationals.Major League Baseball announced the suspension and undisclosed fine Thursday, a day after Urena hit Acuna on the left arm with his first pitch in the Marlins' 5-2 loss in Atlanta. Urena is eligible to play until the appeal process is complete."When I saw I hit a guy, I feel bad," Urena said Friday. "I said something: 'Hey, you'll be OK.' I said it in Spanish."The 20-year-old Acuna went into the game having homered in five straight games, including four homers in the three games against Miami — three of them leading off."I talked to him right after the game," Mattingly said of Urena. "He said he was trying to run the ball close to him and that's exactly what he told me. I just relay what he told me because we talked about it."The 25-year-old Urena, from the Dominican Republic, is 3-12 with a 4.74 ERA in 24 starts.Acuna was back in the lineup for the Braves on Thursday night against Colorado. He went 1 for 4 with a stolen base."One thing I was happy about is that the kid's all right," Mattingly said.If Urena pitched this weekend and then dropped his appeal on Monday, he would miss Miami's series at home against the Braves on Aug. 23-26.
