Brewers vs. Cubs: Game 1 Thread

Milwaukee Brewers (82-62) @ Chicago Cubs (83-59)

Wade Miley (3-2, 2.12) vs. Jon Lester (15-5, 3.53)

Opener of three-game affair at Wrigley Field. Teeming with early playoff implications. Cubs back home after long road trip. Will be interesting to see how Cubs fare after enduring frustrating weekend with plenty of weather issues.

M1 — Really weird inning to opening half-inning. Yelich basically bails on double steal & decides to go back to 2B, even though Braun was already nearly at 2B. Yelich gets caught in pickle & tagged out. Brewers still get run on sac fly before that. Cain leads off with single & eventually scores.

M1 || Brewers 1, Cubs 0

E1 — Cubs push a run across. Bryant hits 1-out double to LF & then reaches 3B on failed pickoff play by Miley. Rizzo drives in Bryant on groundout.

E4 — Almora grounds into inning-ending DP as Cubs strand 1. Miley's composed himself after early struggles.

B5 — Bold base running by Contreras pays off. Slides in for leadoff double on what looked like basic single up middle to put pressure on Miley.

T6 — Lester gets pulled after showing visible discomfort. Probably was going to get pulled anyway. Brewers threatening to take lead with 2 outs in 6th.

M6 — Wild pitch by Edwards leads to Brewers taking lead. Edwards gets K with runners on 2B & 3B to end inning, though.

M8 — Cishek battles through tough inning & lets Brewers get runners on corners. But he tallies inning-ending K to get out of it.

T9 — Interesting pickoff play. Kintzler picks off lead runner at 2B, who never even touched bag with foot on slide back. Murphy appeared to have his foot in front of bag, but that doesn't matter on that particular play.

F — Jeffress bears down & Ks La Stella with speedster Gore on 2B. Brewers now trail Cubs by just 1 game in NL Central.
