Pittsburgh Pirates (80-76) @ Chicago Cubs (91-66)

Ivan Nova (9-9, 4.01) vs. Jose Quintana (13-11, 4.11)

Third matchup of four-game affair. Cubs aiming to avoid dropping three straight to Bucs. Bote starting in place of Bryant at third base after Bryant left Tuesday's game with injury.

T1 — Osuna with solo jack. 3rd straight game Buccos have gone yard early off Cubs. Awful starting pitching on display for Cubs thus far in this series.

T1 || Pirates 1, Cubs 0

T3 — Great play by Rizzo to quickly field dribbler & fire to Baez at 2B. Sets up 3-6-4 DP (with Murphy covering 1B). Cubs aided by Nova's lack of speed.

B3 — Wacky moment you don't see much. Ball fouled back by Heyward caught by Diaz. Home-plate ump rules it as out, but 3B ump overrules him by saying that ball hit net before falling back down. Replay review fails to overturn call. Foul ball.

Meanwhile, Cubs have clinched postseason berth as a result of Cardinals' loss to Brewers. Cubs have reached playoffs 4 years in a row for 1st time in franchise history.

E8 — Scary inning for Cubs. Pirates tack on 2 runs on single off Cishek featuring throwing error by Baez. Following intentional walk, Cishek forces inning-ending groundout.

T9 — Cervelli (certified Cubs killer) barely misses hitting 2-run jack to RF. Hits off top of wall for double. Pirates have runners on 2B & 3B with 1 out.

Gotta wonder if Maddon is finally willing to admit that leaving Strop in the game to bat in extra innings was a terrible idea.

T9 — Marte hits double to RF off Wilson. It hits off top of Rizzo's outstretched glove. Rizzo nearly makes great game-ending catch. Instead, double plates 2 runs. Game tied.

Difficult to understand why Maddon continues to give Wilson chances in big spots. He consistently falters in tight-knit situations. Kind of unbelievable that Maddon would use him in that spot. Even more unbelievable he left him in the game after the Cervelli double.

Wow! Maddon decides to insert a fresh pitcher in game, & an inning-ending groundout comes posthaste. Imagine that! Funny how that works.

The Cubs may very well go on to win the World Series, but it will be in spite of the bullpen management. This season has been plagued with really questionable relief-pitching decisions.

F/10 — WINNER! Almora swings on 0-2 count & cranks winning hit in 5-6 hole. Gore scores from 3B.
