Cincinnati Reds (63-86) @ Chicago Cubs (87-61)

Luis Castillo (9-12, 4.66) vs. Jose Quintana (13-9, 3.97)

Cubs aiming for three-game sweep and fourth straight win. Rizzo back in the leadoff spot for the first time in a while. Heyward activated before game after missing a few weeks with a hamstring injury.

M1 — Reds get leadoff HR to start game as part of really long opening half-inning. Quintana throws 28 pitches & escapes bases-loaded jam by forcing inning-ending popup.

B1 — Rizzo proves effective as leadoff man by getting hit by a pitch, but Happ grounds into DP right after.

E3 — Castillo continues to deal. He's doing much better than he did in his last start vs. Cubs. Chicago hitless through 3.

T4 — 2nd leadoff shot of game for Reds. Ervin clocks out beyond CF on fastball thrown right down pipe. All 4 of Cincy's runs in this series have been via solo jacks.

T4 — Russell with 2 terrible throwing errors in a row. Not helping his cause for getting quality playing time once postseason arrives.

E4 — Controversial ruling in Chicago. Shot up 1B line by Caratini called foul. Not reviewable. Looked like ball might've gone right over edge of bag. Would've scored Rizzo if called fair. Popup after that. Cubs strand 2.

B5 — Contreras hits absolute moonshot to deep CF that comes down just short of HR. Hits off wall. Contreras got caught ogling his hit (thinking it was gone) & has to hustle just to get double. Cubs have men on 2B & 3B with 1 out.

B5 — Almora picks up RBI on fly ball to deep CF. Russell tags up at 3B & scores with ease. Cubs on the board.

E5 — Happ grounds out to 2B with runners on corners & 2 outs to end inning. Cubs have come up empty-handed several times with 2 outs today.

E7 — Yet another tough ending to an inning for Cubs. Rizzo strikes out after wild pitch lets runners reach 2B & 3B with 2 outs.

E8 — Once again, frustrating ending to inning for Cubs. Murphy smacks single down LF line & tries to stretch it into double. He gets thrown out by a country mile. Tagged out before he can even think about sliding.

F — Cubs fall in series finale & miss out on sweep. Pitiful hitting with RISP kills Cubs. Chicago wins season series over Cincinnati 11-7, though.
