Cubs vs. Braves: Game 2 Thread

Chicago Cubs (22-17) @ Atlanta Braves (25-16)

Tyler Chatwood (3-3, 3.35) vs. Brandon McCarthy (4-2, 5.58)

A battle of starting pitchers who have been up and down this year. Braves looking to bounce back after disheartening loss last night. Almora leading off for Cubs. Zobrist gets night off after game-winner.

B1 — Albies swings at first pitch. Nearly gets it over wall in right-center. He continues to dominate Cubs pitching this week. 10-20 against Cubs this year.

T2 — Baez gets off to good start as he looks to get out of recent slump. Reaches out to hit outside pitch between 1B and 2B for single to right.

T2 — Great at-bat for Russell. Eventually comes up with well-hit fly ball to deep center. Speedy Inciarte tracks it down for out.

B2 — Almora with spectacular catch. Scales wall in center field to rob Flowers of home run. Continuing to show why he should start every day.

E4 — Chatwood gets out of jam after Flowers double puts men on 2nd & 3rd. Inciarte flies out to left. Thank goodness Schwarber didn't blow out another cleat on the play. Keeps Braves in check.

T5 — Happ shows up Braves' shift with single to opposite field. Leadoff single for Happ followed up by perfect sacrifice bunt by Chatwood. Almora with a chance to put Cubs on scoreboard.

T5 — Cubs on the board. Bryant clubs one to left. Acuna traps it to prevent extra bases, but Happ coasts home. Game tied at 1-1.

M6 — Freeman makes an unbelievable catch. Backhands hard-hit short-hop from Schwarber. Steps on first. Gets other runner in rundown. Braves get out of inning unscathed.

E6 — Great job by Duensing to cover 1st. Clutch double play by Cubs to end inning. Game still tied.

T8 — After watching the replay multiple times, it's incredibly puzzling how Contreras was able to hit that ball. Chin-high pitch hit for single. Men on 1st & 2nd now for Cubs with 2 outs.

B8 — Gonna go out on a limb and guess that the Cubs won't be too unhappy when this series ends and they don't have to face Ozzie Albies for a while. Stretches hard-hit ball to deep right-center into triple. He's owned that gap between right and center. The other Baby Brave, Acuna, drives him in with 8th RBI on single to left.
