T1 — Javy doing Javy things. He takes advantage of a couple of defensive blunders by Milwaukee, & he goes home from 1B on routine single by Rizzo to CF. Butterfield opts to send in, & throw home is off the mark. Baez scores after bloop single in 2nd AB of game.

T1 || Cubs 1, Brewers 0

Crazy thing about the Javy play is that most players wouldn't even have considered going to 3B on that routine single to CF. Javy? He made it all the way home on it.

B1 — Aguilar nearly hits HR. Happ misjudges his jump in CF. Ball hits off top of wall & falls back into field of play. Aguilar nearly thrown out at 2B, but he gets in for double.

T4 — Schwarber irked after getting rung on out what he felt was outside pitch. Ump lets him get some words in without ejecting him, though. Russell follows that up with his 1st hit since coming off DL.

B4 — Now, Braun's irked after getting rung up on full count. Home-plate ump with very pitcher-friendly strike zone today. Hamels with 4 K so far.

T5 — Braun shows that he's still got it with a Superman-like dive to rob Murphy of an extra-base hit. Braun absolutely lays out to make diving catch.

E5 — Arcia scores on RBI single by Cain. Unfortunate for Cubs because, prior to that, a bad throw by Rizzo on an attempted steal by Arcia led to Arcia getting into scoring position. Cain then scores on single by Yelich. Yelich gets thrown out attempting to stretch it into double.

Today marks the 1st time since being acquired by the Cubs that Hamels has given up multiple runs in a start.

M7 — Hader dealing in relief for Milwaukee. 6 up, 6 down for the fireballer.

T8 — Brewers leave Hader to pitch his 3rd inning, which is rare for him. Happ draws leadoff walk.

T8 — BIG RIZZ WITH THE GO-AHEAD BOMB! 2-run jack gives Cubs lead in 8th. Hader arguably left in too long.

B8 — Maddon gets thrown out over arguing strike call. Tensions finally boiled over. Home-plate umpire has made several questionable calls today. Edwards currently on mound with bases juiced & 2 outs.

B8 — Edwards walks in tying run. Strange that he was still in game. He's been visibly emotional since questionable call that led to Maddon getting thrown out. Edwards gets thrown out as he gets taken out of game, too.

E8 — Cishek forces inning-ending groundout after taking over for Edwards. He probably should've been brought in sooner.

Regardless of the outcome, this has been a thrilling game. Definitely a playoff atmosphere, especially with the good balance of Brewers fans & Cubs fans at Miller Park today.

B9 — Bottom of 9th similar to bottom of 8th. Cubs reliever left in arguably too long, resulted in bases getting loaded. Brewers with only 1 out & need only 1 run to walk it off.

F — Wild ending. Yelich beats out chopper hit to 3B. Bryant steps on 3B for 2nd out & fires to 1B for attempt at DP. Rizzo lays out for it, but Yelich beats it out for winning RBI.

So much to digest on that final play. For one, got to wonder if KB hadn't been on the shelf for so long & not exactly in top form if he had been quicker to the draw at stepping on 3B & throwing to 1B. Also, he could've gone for the safer force out at home & sacrificed the DP attempt.

Oh, & Rizzo did an unbelievable split to catch Bryant's throw, which was lost in the fact that it was a walk-off hit. Also, Yelich thought for a split second (because of the loud Cubs contingent in stands) that he had been called out. Could tell by look on his face & because he seemed like he was about to throw his helmet.
