B2 — Big Jon comes up clutch. Double to opposite field brings home a run. Descalso initially reached 2nd b/c of blatant throwing error on what should've been routine 3rd out. Heyward then intentionally walked. Following Lester's RBI double, Zobrist plates Heyward & Lester with RBI single.

B2 || Pirates 0, Cubs 3

Tallon hit in the head. Karma for throwing pitches at our players

B2 — 2-out rally continues for Cubs. RBI single from Rizzo ricochets off Taillon on pitcher's mound & into OF. Taillon a little shaken up. Doing some warm-up tosses & trying to remain in game.

B2 || Pirates 0, Cubs 4

B2 — Baez with the craziest single of his career by essentially throwing his bat at low pitch. Newman then commits 2 terrible blunders on Rizzo hit. 3 errors in 1 inning for him.

B2 || Pirates 0, Cubs 6

T3 — Disconcerting situation for Cubs with Lester leaving the game injured. He did seem to grimace a bit after sliding in to score in the 2nd. Would be unfortunate if a slide ended up causing him to miss starts.

T3 || Pirates 0, Cubs 6

B3 — Cubs continuing to rake in 3rd. Descalso's leadoff double leads to him later scoring on grounder by Zobrist. Then, Bryant plates Heyward with double into RF corner.

B3 || Pirates 0, Cubs 8

B4 — Schwarber gets underneath pitch for 2-run bomb. Cubs already have double-digit runs, & it's not even the 5th inning.

B4 || Pirates 0, Cubs 10

F — Cubs win behind 6-run 2nd inning. Crazy how 1 simple error with 2 outs in the 2nd changed the entire trajectory of the game.

F || Pirates 0, Cubs 10
