Braun Hits 300th Homer, Brewers Beat Cubs 2-0

CHICAGO (AP) — Ryan Braun hit his 300th homer, Jimmy Nelson combined with three relievers on a five-hitter, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 2-0 in the first regular-season Friday night game at Wrigley Field. Braun hit a two-run drive in the first inning against John Lackey. Nelson pitched four-hit ball over five innings before leaving with a sore right arm, and the Brewers opened the weekend series on a winning note after dropping four of five. Milwaukee pulled within four games of Chicago for the NL Central lead. Nelson (12-6) struck out seven and walked two while winning his third straight start. He singled off the left-field wall in the fifth and had to dive back to first after rounding the base. Josh Hader retired the side in the sixth and seventh before walking Jon Jay leading off the eighth. Anthony Swarzak retired the next three batters, and Corey Knebel worked the ninth for his 33rd save in 38 chances. He gave up a two-out single to Jason Heyward before striking out Javier Baez. Lackey (11-11) settled down after Braun connected, holding the Brewers to two runs and four hits over seven innings. He struck out nine and walked two, but Chicago came up short in what was originally scheduled as a day game. The Cubs, closing in on their third straight playoff berth, got permission from the city to push the start back a few hours because they didn’t want a short turnaround coming off a game at Pittsburgh the previous night. Outscored a combined 21-8 in a three-game sweep at Cincinnati, the Brewers grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first. Eric Thames doubled off the wall in left-center leading off and Braun hit a two-run shot beyond the shrubs in center field. TRAINER’S ROOM Cubs: SS Addison Russell (plantar fasciitis in the right foot) is pain-free and able to do some light jogging as he works his way back from an injury that has sidelined him since early August. He will likely play some simulated games when he’s ready, before being activated from the disabled list. … C Willson Contreras (strained right hamstring) was to be re-evaluated in Chicago after serving as the DH for Class-A Myrtle Beach on Friday. UP NEXT LHP Mike Montgomery (5-7, 3.38 ERA) makes another start for the Cubs — this time with Jake Arrieta hurt, after pitching well in Jon Lester’s absence — while RHP Chase Anderson (8-3, 3.06) goes for Milwaukee. Montgomery is 2-1 with a 2.00 ERA in three starts since being reinserted into the rotation when Lester was placed on the DL on Aug. 18. (© 2017 by STATS LLC and Associated Press.

Positively Chicago: Rosey’s MS Foundation

CHICAGO (CBS) — What do you get when you combine a man with a serious neurological disease and a son who wants to eradicate that debilitating disease? You get the Rosey’s MS Foundation on the North Shore. As CBS 2’s Rob Johnson reports, it’s Positively Chicago. “I always thought I was a klutz. I was tripping over my feet, I was never steady, I was never balanced. When I went to my internist, he knew right away what I had,” said Mark Rosenblum. Rosenblum learned he had multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease where the immune system attacks nerve insulation, called myelin, which can cause multiple health problems. “I take two naps a day and I have very little coordination in my hands,” Rosenblum said. “I have about 8 feet that I can walk, and I do have my son’s arm to be able to hold on when I can.” Aaron, his 30-year-old son, decided to start Rosey’s MS Foundation after watching his dad struggle for years. The non-for-profit is dedicated and determined to helping Rosenblum and millions like him.

“That’s when it started to sink in that, wow, my dad has a terminal illness. When I was that young, I was thinking, wow, is my dad going to make it?” Aaron said. For the second year, Rosey’s MS Foundation will be hosting a charity walk. This year, it’s at Independence Grove Forest Preserve in Libertyville and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Aaron looked up Northwestern’s Dr. Steven Miller and was fascinated by his research on “nanotechnology,” which is helping to stop the destruction of myelin in mice, and might even be able to repair it. “When the animal already has that disease ongoing, we’re able to take those same myelin anogins, administer them in the blood stream, which then go to the brain and shut down the auto-immune response and stop it,” Dr. Miller said. It costs about $1 million a year to run this lab, and with government funding on the decline, Dr. Miller said was happy to welcome Rosey’s financial boost, adding, “To have Aaron’s help — a remarkable young man — is fantastic.” “It feels good, but ultimately, I’d like to find a cure,” Aaron said. “I’ve made that pledge. Until I find a cure, I won’t step down.” Rosey’s annual “Nip MS in the Bud Walk for a Cure” is on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Chicago Man To Host Hurricane Irma Relief Drive

CHICAGO (CBS) — Many Floridians are feeling helpless in Chicago as they watch Hurricane Irma approach their home state in full force. CBS 2’s Sandra Torres found a couple who is working diligently to try to help those in need. For days, Mauricio and Angela Romy have been closely monitoring Irma’s activity. The couple lived in southern Florida’s Broward County for 10 years before moving to Chicago three years ago. “It’s affecting me personally because I have family over there,” Mauricio said. When Mauricio told his wife he wanted to head to Florida to help, she said she was hesitant. “My first thought was to be selfish. What about your family? We’re first. But when we are called to do something you have to put that aside.” And with that, the mission began. Mauricio created a GoFundMe page to raise funds so he can fill a truck with supplies such as water, baby food and canned goods. With the help of his daughter’s school, he plans to host a hurricane relief drive across the city all weekend. “Here’s another one of our parents just looking out for other people. And what can we do now to spread the message?” said Kathy Donovan, principal of St. Hilary’s Catholic School. And while he said he’s scared of the journey ahead, Mauricio is confident that it is worth it. “I’m about to drive 21 hours to south Florida by myself with a truck full of supplies. It’s something I have to do. I cannot be sitting on my couch just watching the news and seeing how people are struggling.” Mauricio will be collecting donations St. Hilary’s Catholic School, Lincoln and California, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. He’ll then drive the truck to southern Florida once the storm is over.

At Least 1 Injured In Gurnee Explosion

CHICAGO (CBS) — At least one person was injured Friday in a Gurnee explosion that completely leveled a home and blasted debris several blocks away. CBS 2’s Audrina Bigos reports. Fire officials say the vacant house, located in the 18000 block of West Streamwood Court, exploded around 6:30 p.m. Friday night.

Initially the Gurnee Fire Department Battalion Chief James Pellitteri said it was a miracle that no one was injured. A body, however, was later located near the explosion. Nearby homes were hit by debris, with one neighbor saying, “My bedroom blind blew out.” Another neighbor’s window blew out and others say their lights even started flickering. “I thought it was my car exploding or the garage, or I thought it was a big firework. But my husband said ‘no, it’s something worse than that,'” Sheryl Perez said. Crews remained on the scene at 10 p.m., working to cut gas lines and stop the flames.

The cause of the explosion is still under investigation.
