B3 — Terrible baserunning decision by Bader. Tries to stretch a single into a double. Thrown out by a mile.

B5 — More questionable baserunning by the Cards. Edman (who's really fast) chooses to hold at 3B on a sac. bunt by Wainwright. Bader now at 2B. Carlson batting with 2 outs.

E5 — Hendricks gets a call on a full count. Carlson looks at strike 3 (which appeared to be just outside). Inning over. Carlson furious.

T6 — Contreras hits a leadoff double & advances to 3B on a Rizzo groundout. He then comes home on a grounder hit to 3B by Baez. Arenado throws Contreras out with ease. Really lackluster baserunning by both teams tonight.

B7 — After the Cubs squander another Heyward double in the top of the 7th, the Cards get on the board in the bottom of the 7th. Contreras fires an errant throw to 1B after fielding a tapper hit by DeJong. Bader doubles a few ABs later, & DeJong scores from 2B. Chafin relieves Hendricks.

T10 — Gant left in the game to start the 10th (really questionable bullpen management by the Cards these past 2 games). He gives up a leadoff single to Baez. Rizzo now at 3B. Pitching change coming.

T10 — Atrocious baserunning has been a fixture of this game. Rizzo somehow gets caught in a pickle between 3B & home when Happ hits a grounder to SS. Force out at 2B. Rizzo tagged out. Happ reaches 2B. Wisdom intentionally walked.
