CHICAGO -- Even though Jared Weaver still isnt pitching the way he wants to, he thinks hes now progressing instead of regressing.Thats something he couldnt say back in spring training when he was diagnosed with degenerative changes in the vertebrae of his neck.Its getting better, Weaver said following the Los Angeles Angels 5-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night. Every time I go out it feels different, but definitely my body is feeling a lot less restrictions.One day its all gonna click, he added.This wasnt the day, though.Kris Bryant hit his 28th home run, John Lackey outpitched his friend and former teammate, and Chicago won its eighth consecutive game.Willson Contreras also homered and Ben Zobrist added an RBI double for the major league-leading Cubs, who improved to 70-41.Los Angeles (49-63) dropped its fifth straight and fell into last place in the AL West.Kole Calhoun homered in the first inning, but that was all the offense the Angels produced. Lackey (9-7) allowed three hits over eight innings, and all six of his strikeouts were looking.He was really good, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. Thats how he pitches. Hes aggressive. He went after them.Weaver (8-9) gave up four earned runs and another one that was unearned when he dropped a throw to first base for an error. He permitted eight hits in five innings.I dont think he pitched as poorly as his linescore indicates, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. We let some things get away from us a little bit. But a couple of mistakes he made and those guys hit it out.The matchup of veteran right-handers was as one-sided as their teams seasons in the opener of Chicagos 10-game homestand.The 37-year-old Lackey and 33-year-old Weaver were teammates a decade ago with the Angels. They had split their previous two meetings when Lackey pitched for Boston.Its still a little weird because I root for him when hes not facing us, Lackey said. Hes a good friend. I really respect the way hes still competing and still getting after it with stuff thats a little less than he used to have. But hes still grinding, still trying to help his club win.Calhoun struck first, sending Lackeys third pitch into the left-field bleachers for his first homer since June 25. Contreras tied it with a shot to left-center in the third.Weaver had the Cubs off balance early with his 83 mph fastball and 70 mph curve. But Chicago started to pounce the second time through the order, with Anthony Rizzo doubling in a two-run fourth and again in a two-run fifth.The second hit came after Bryant sent Weavers slider onto Waveland Avenue.Its one of those lineups where you cant really breathe while youre out there. Theres no leeway, Weaver said.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: New closer Cam Bedrosian was placed on the 15-day DL with tendinitis in his right middle finger. RHP A.J. Achter was called up from Triple-A. . 1B C.J. Cron (hand) plans to take live batting practice in Arizona this week. . RHP Nick Tropeano will undergo Tommy John surgery next Tuesday in Los Angeles.SOTO ACTIVATEDAngels C Geovany Soto was activated from the 15-day DL following the game and C Carlos Perez was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake. Scioscia said Soto will be in the lineup Wednesday night.CALL REVERSEDThe Cubs Dexter Fowler was ruled out after 3B Yunel Escobar had a foul pop knocked out of his glove by a fan in the fifth. Umpires initially ruled it no play before huddling and changing the call without a replay review.UP NEXTThe series concludes Wednesday night with Chicago RHP Jason Hammel (11-5, 3.07 ERA) returning from the bereavement list to face right-hander and former Cubs draft pick Ricky Nolasco (4-8, 5.23). Michael Strahan Giants Jersey . Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). Michael Strahan Womens Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. Saquon Barkley Jersey . For the Wild it was their first win of the season and they now have a record of 1-1-2 while the Jets fall to 2-2. Jets start a six game home stand Friday with another divisional game, home to the Dallas Stars. Deandre Baker Womens Jersey . The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. First-year Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall figured his defense was ready for the season-opener against Richmond.It wasnt.And now, after losing 37-20 to the Spiders of the Football Championship Subdivision, his Cavaliers have to go across country to face the high-powered No. 24 Oregon Ducks in Autzen Stadium at 10:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.In general, I overestimated the amount and volume of defensive schemes and calls and the number of things that our defense could handle in game one, Mendenhall said at his Monday press conference.And so simplicity will be a factor just to allow fundamentals and assignments to take over. And I think that will be significant help there.Oregon held its spot in the AP poll after a 53-28 win over lower-division UC Davis, which wasnt necessarily the margin of victory many expected, but it did provide graduate transfer Dakota Prukop a chance to get his feet wet with the Ducks.He completed 21 of 30 passes for 271 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions. The senior from Montana State also ran 11 times for 36 yards and a score. Oregon, which started four true freshmen on the offensive line, put up 522 total yards, including 251 on the ground.Prukop called it an introduction course to major college football for much of the offense.If you go watch the first series and then watch our last series, you can see its a completely different offense just in the course of a game, he said. Were really expecting a lot of growth between week 1 and week 2.Mendenhall, the BYU head coach for the previous 11 seasons, put in his 3-4 scheme in spring and fall camps. In the opener, the Cavs allowed 524 yards and failed to force a turnover. Mendenhall is trying to turn things around after coach Mike London went 27-46 in six seasons at Virginia and wasnt able to beat rival Virginia Tech.Virginia was 4-8 last season.The brutal fact and the reality is I think everyone -- players, coaches and certainly fans -- were hopeful this would be an immediate turnaround and an instant and an overnight success, Mendenhall said.Theres somee habits that have come with losing and lack of success.dddddddddddd I have a clearer idea now of what that looks like, but remain really optimistic.The Ducks offense remains one of the most skilled in the country.Junior running back Royce Freeman had two rushing touchdowns against UC Davis to become the fifth player in school history with 40 touchdowns. He wasnt needed much, with only 11 carries for 87 yards, snapping his streak of nine straight 100-yard rushing games.Wide receiver Darren Carrington had seven catches for 117 yards and a touchdown against UC Davis. The junior has 53 catches for 1,017 yards and 10 touchdowns in his last 10 games.Oregon is expected to have starting left tackle Tyrell Crosby back this week after he sat out the opener because of a foot injury.Virginia used only 15 players on defense against Richmond and allowed four plays of at least 30 yards. That doesnt bode well for a game against the up-tempo and explosive Ducks.Assignments, alignment and managing the pace, those things now are multipliers, Mendenhall said of facing Oregons offense. I think itll be a significant challenge.Oregons defense is undergoing changes, too, switching to a 4-3 front under new coordinator Brady Hoke, the former Michigan head coach. The Ducks are inexperienced in that front group but might have found a new star in true freshman linebacker Troy Dye.He got the start against UC Davis and earned Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors. Dye had 11 tackles, including 4.5 for loss. He also blocked a field goal attempt.Oregon will be facing quarterback Kurt Benkert, who beat out incumbent Matt Johns for the starting spot in fall camp. Benkert, a grad transfer from East Carolina, was 26 of 34 for 264 yards, with three touchdowns and one interception, against Richmond.He didnt get a lot of help on the ground from running backs Smoke Mizzell and Albert Reid in what is a more up-tempo offense under Mendenhall.
