M2 — Contreras gets leadoff walk, but Cubs fail to get ball out of infield for rest of inning. Foltynewicz with 3 Ks already.

E2 — Inciarte surprises Cubs and reaches 1st on bunt single. Then, he proceeds to steal 2B. But Darvish gets Bautista to strike out swinging to end inning.

M3 — "Folty" getting the Cubs to swing and miss...a lot. Also struggling with walks, though. 2 Ks followed by 2 BBs and then a 3rd K in the 3rd. 6 Ks total but pitch count running high at 53. Rizzo strikes out with men on 1st and 2nd to end inning.

M3 || Cubs 0, Braves 0

T4 — Contreras drills a double off wall in left-center. Hot start to May continues. Cubs with a great scoring opportunity.

T4 — Questionable called strike to out Schwarber. Contreras still at 2B. 2 outs. Almora with a chance to put Cubs on board.

T4 — Crazy 1st run for Cubs. Russell swings and misses at awful pitch for strike 3. Wild pitch gets away from Suzuki, who collides with umpire chasing ball. Misfires on throw to 1st. Allows run to score.

B4 — Tie ballgame. Inciarte skies a homer to right. 2-2 off Darvish today.

B5 — Darvish done after 4. Understandable, as he's coming off layoff. Looked pretty good. Inciarte his only issue. 5 Ks in 61 pitches. Montgomery gives up hit in 1st AB. Darvish getting pulled early could hurt Cubs.

B5 || Cubs 1, Braves 1

It's been a while since Baez has messed up while hot-doggin' it. Should have settled before making that throw. Could really cost Cubs.

Soooooooo, it's safe to say the baseball gods are smiling on the Cubs tonight. Not only did those close calls get called in favor of them, but how often have you seen a defensive team benefit from two awful pitches? Two outs on two bad pitches and heads up plays by Contreras.

Home runs and really weird plays. That basically sums up these two Braves-Cubs games so far this week.

Spark plug Almora keeping Cubs alive. Slides in for one-out double. Gutsy call to stretch that into two-bagger.

Still think the Cubs need Machado? One of the hardest-fought ABs for a Cub this year. Clutch double for Russell scores Almora. Tied up at 2.

Do it for the cleats!!! Zobrist puts Cubs on top. Cubs really taking advantage of hard-fought ABs tonight.
