T1 — Worst possible start to Alzolay's debut start. 1st pitch taken deep by Acuna.

M2 — Efficient 2nd inning for Alzolay, who goes 3 up, 3 down. He's recovered well since giving up a homer right off the bat.

M2 || Braves 1, Cubs 0

B2 — Cubs showing plenty of patience at the plate in this inning. 3 walks in 4 plate appearances. Bases juiced with 1 out.

E2 — One of the unluckiest double plays you'll ever see ruins Cubs' 2nd inning. Alzolay fails to make contact on bunt, & Baez gets caught in rundown b/w 3B & home. Contreras attempts to make it to 3B, but he gets gunned down. Inning over after Cubs had bases loaded with 1 out.

E2 || Braves 1, Cubs 0

E2 — Replays make it seem as though Contreras might've gotten in at 3B before being tagged. Maddon chose not to challenge, though.

B4 — Contreras stays hot against the Braves. He smacks a 2-run double into the LF corner. No comment from Flowers in the dugout.

B5 — Alzolay's night ends with 2 outs & the bases juiced in the 5th. He's not in line for the win this time around due to the length of his outing. Good turnaround after giving up 1st-pitch homer, though.

B5 || Braves 1, Cubs 2

E6 — Fried still in the game. He sits the Cubs down in order in the 6th. Only 3 combined hits in the game so far.

T7 — Albies goes yard off Montomgery. 2-run bomb puts the Braves in front. Albies has been insanely good at the plate against the Cubs this year.

T7 || Braves 3, Cubs 2

B9 — In for defensive abilities, Charlie Culberson robs Baez of leadoff hit with great sliding grab.

F — Bote swings & misses for strikeout & final out. Braves win it on a pair of homers. Old-fashioned game with just 7 total hits.
