Cardinals vs. Cubs: Game 3 Thread

St. Louis Cardinals (88-73) @ Chicago Cubs (94-67)

Jack Flaherty (8-8, 3.16) vs. Mike Montgomery (5-6, 3.99)

Final game of the regular season. Cubs tied with Brewers for first place in division. Cardinals (already eliminated from playoff contention) essentially have nothing to play for.

M1 — Cubs off to awful start. Cards already up 2-0. Montgomery gives up leadoff double to Carpenter. DeJong scores him on single. Heyward then misplays single to CF. Allows another run to score.

M1 || Cardinals 2, Cubs 0

Interesting that Montgomery got this start. Of course, Maddon had to factor in possibility of game 163 tomorrow, as well as WC game on Tuesday. So it would be tough to switch up rotation. Wonder if Maddon thought about starting 1 of the other 4 starters on short rest today.

E1 — Javy ignores stop sign on 2-out single by Rizzo. Gets thrown out easily at home. Didn't even require a great throw to get him. Potentially a costly decision by Javy.

Have heard/read a variety of Cubs announcers/media members discuss the bone-headed base-running decisions that have plagued Cubs this season. Base-running specialist Butterfield has certainly been an asset in some cases, but Cubs players have committed a lot of self-inflicted wounds on the basepaths.

T3 — Alex Webster replaces Montgomery in 3rd. Short start for Montgomery in critical game. Cards have man on 2B & 1 out.

M3 — Webster hits a batter but still gets out of jam. Cubs need to get going at plate.

B3 — Zobrist comes through in the clutch. Triple into RF corner scores Murphy (who doubled in gap b/w CF & RF in previous AB). Zobrist gets all the way to 3B.

B3 — All tied up! Flaherty left in game after brief mound visit. Immediately throws wild pitch. Zobrist hustles home from third.

B3 — Rizzo reaches 100 RBI with double toward wall in right-center to score Javy. Rizzo's 4th 100-RBI season. Cubs take 1st lead. Pitching change coming.

B3 — Heyward avenges himself for earlier error with base knock to shallow RF. Rizzo motors home. Bryant at 3B. Really long, effective inning for Cubs.

B5 — Bryant comes through with double to LF. 2 runs come in to score. Gomber appears to be gassed. Cubs in total control.

B5 — Contreras breaks out of HR slump with 1st long ball since August 1. 2-run jack puts Cubs up by 6.

B5 — HR call stands after review. Optical illusion about where it might have hit. Seems like it probably hit green video board, then bounced off tape & back into field of play.

T6 — In a pivotal game, Maddon decides to bring in Edwards (who's been garbage in recent weeks). Edwards throws wild pitch & gives up 2-run single soon after entering.

T6 — Nice DP turned by Cubs to regain composure. Provides Edwards with some relief.

B6 — Baez gets stand-up double on shot to wall in right. Cubs have hit plenty of extra-base hits to warning track/wall today. Baez has career-high 40 doubles this year.

B6 — Bad defensive positioning by Cards helps Cubs score run. Carpenter fields grounder. Nobody covering 2B. Pitcher races to cover 1B. Throw off mark to 1B. Baez scores. Hudson (pitcher) charged with error.

The Cardinals have been terrible defensively in this series. Really weird that one of the most buttoned-up teams in baseball is playing like it's late March in late September.

M8 — O'Neill skies deep fly to warning track in RF. Heyward catches it. Former Cardinal Garcia gets out of jam. Cards could've gotten back in game with HR right there.

F — De La Rosa finishes off game. Cubs overcome bad start & win comfortably. Great bullpen performance. Cubs will play Brewers in tiebreaker tomorrow.
