Braves-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- Quality depth is one reason the Chicago Cubs have some lofty expectations for 2016.

With two prominent players on the disabled list and another ailing, Saturday is another opportunity for the Cubs to tap into their resources while trying for an eighth straight victory over the visiting Atlanta Braves.

Reserve outfielder Matt Szczur hit his first grand slam to highlight a five-run eighth inning in Chicago's fourth straight win, 6-1 on Friday.
