T1 — Awesome throw from Contreras on steal attempt. Classic slap tag from Javy outs runner with ease.

M1 — Hendricks gets inning-ending K after runner caught stealing. Today's game the polar opposite of last Friday afternoon's game at Wrigley. Wind blowing really hard but in (instead of out, like last Friday). Homers will be hard to come by today.

M1 || Diamondbacks 0, Cubs 0

E1 — Long half-inning ends with no runs scored for Cubs. Contreras grounds out with men on 2nd & 3rd & 2 outs.

M2 — Walker wreaks havoc on basepaths in 2nd with steal & advance to 3rd on wild pitch. Hendricks gets another inning-ending K to keep Walker stranded, though.

B2 — 2 quick hits for Cubs, who have something brewing in the 2nd. Heyward gets on base with dribbler hit on infield grass. Bote then drives one up the middle to put runners on 1st & 2nd with 0 outs.

B2 — Hendricks lays down bunt with bases loaded. Great play by Kelly to scoop ball up & flip it to catcher with his glove for force out at home. Hendricks drilled in back with throw to 1B. He was still in basepath when he was hit, so it's bases loaded with 1 out.

B2 — The wind works in the Cubs' favor. Routine popup hit by Bryant falls in for 2-run double with 2 outs. Winds made what should've been an easy catch impossible. Ball falls in for a hit in shallow right-center.

B2 || Diamondbacks 0, Cubs 2

Baez back to looking overmatched in two at bats today. Swings and misses at a high pitch in 1st and one low and away in the 2nd. That's textbook bad plate coverage.

B3 — Nearly another wind-related disaster for 'Zona. Schwarber's towering popup caught just behind 2B, as 2 D-back defenders nearly bungled the catch.

B4 — Big Rizzo with a big triple into LF corner that ricochets off brick wall in foul territory. Scores Descalso. 1 out & man on 3rd for Cubs.

M5 — Hendricks has been dominant today with men on base. He gets another inning-ending strikeout with wicked sinker. 8 Ks for him today. He's in line for his 1st win.

B6 — Bad pitch gets away from D-backs catcher. Bryant comes in to score, & Javy reaches 3rd. Contreras then brings Javy home on single to CF. Tough inning for Koch, who also hit Rizzo in foot with pitch earlier in inning.

B6 || Diamondbacks 0, Cubs 5

T9 — New reliever Brad Brach underwhelms yet again. He might want to focus on making fruit snacks instead of pitching. D-backs break up shutout with run in 9th & currently have men on 2nd & 3rd with 1 out.

F — Strop comes in & keeps the Snakes at bay. 2 runners left stranded. 31-inning shutout streak ended in the 9th marked the longest such streak for the Cubs since 1976.
