Cubs vs. Cardinals: Game 3 Thread

Chicago Cubs (40-27) @ St. Louis Cardinals (36-32)

Jose Quintana (6-4, 4.09) vs. Jack Flaherty (3-2, 2.96)

Cubs gunning for a sweep. Zobrist leading off, and Heyward batting in the two spot (which he has thrived in lately). Young pitcher Flaherty pitching for Cards.

M2 — 22-year-old Cards pitcher Flaherty in total control early on. 6 up, 6 down with 3 Ks through 31 pitches.

Another potential controversy involving the Cubs' wardrobe. Contreras lost the comic book-themed catcher's gear after only an inning. Perhaps it wasn't comfortable on him...or he was advised to take it off.

T3 — Frightening moment for Cubs. Baez gets hit in left elbow by pitch. Wasn't wearing an elbow pad either. Cubs, meanwhile, have runners on 1B & 2B with 0 outs. Baez leaving the game, & Russell coming in for him.

T3 || Cubs 0, Cardinals 0

M3 — Bryant's struggles with RISP continue. Swinging K to end the inning after Heyward walks to load the bases.

E3 — Flaherty gets 2-out single, but Carpenter grounds out to 2B to end inning. Quintana with just 1 hit to his name through 3.

Positive news from Maddon. Tells ESPN in dugout interview that he doesn't think the Baez injury is "anything serious." Says it "should hurt tonight and into tomorrow." Probably more painful than anything. Hopefully, Baez doesn't miss any substantial time.

T4 — Contreras gets slightly hit by a pitch. Just glances his forearm. No complaints from the Cards. Runners on 1B & 2B with 0 outs again for Cubs.

T4 — Cubs suffer from the rare force-out on a single. High bloop hit to center by Schwarber drops in, & Bader guns down Rizzo at 3B. Rizzo had to hesitate to see if the ball would be caught.

M4 — Yet again, inning-ending K gets Flaherty out of jam. Cubs leave bases juiced & get no runs.

Strange game so far. Cubs have left 14 on base but have only 1 hit. Cardinals also have 1 hit but have only 1 LOB.

T6 — Contreras slides too hard on a steal. Slides off back after originally beating the tag. Almora follows that up with a single to LF.

B6 — Cardinals on the board. Molina grounds into a DP, but Bader scores from 3B. Frustrating inning for the Cubs. 2 infield singles beat out by Cards hitters lead to the 1st run.

B7 — Carpenter jacks a solo bomb to right off Duensing. A slider over the middle leads to the Cards going up 3-0.

E7 — Schwarber with his 6th assist of the season from the OF. Guns down Bader attempting to stretch a single into a double. Chalk it up as another dude doubting Schwarber's arm & paying the price.

B8 — Cubs trailing 3-0 late. Cards with a man on 1B & 1 out. Maddon pulling Duensing in favor Farrell.

B8 — Schwarber suffers from a bad hop. Bloop hit by Molina hits just right on the dirt near the LF line & bounces over Schwarber's head. Pham comes all the way around from 1B to score.

Only guy more frustrated than Baez about Baez getting hit in the elbow is Russell. Bad defensive play on his part after getting inserted into the game.
