Hamels one of the stingiest pitchers with walks in baseball while the Dodgers have more walks than any other team. The walk to Turner is Hamels first in 22 innings.

A great visual in this game. Beautiful ballpark, home team in their white uniforms and visitors in their gray uniforms. Looks like what baseball should look like.

M1 — Hamels issues a couple of walks but gets out of 1st inning without allowing a run. He has a history of pitching really well against the Dodgers.

M1 || Dodgers 0, Cubs 0

Walker Buehler has 7-9 pitches he uses in a game.

According to Dodgers broadcaster Orel Hershiser he does not have confidence in any of them enough to focus on 3 or 4 and make them really good. Once he does he will be some kind of pitcher.

Hamels just issues his third walk of the game which equals his total number of walks for his first four games.

E3 — Bryant comes through with shot into RF corner with 2 outs. Descalso attempts to scored from 3B but gets tagged out. Great relay throw by Dodgers on play.

Orel Hershiser at 10 years old separated his elbow throwing too many curve balls.
Cole Hamels at 16 threw a pitch in summer ball and broke the bone between his elbow and shoulder.
Both managed to overcome those weird injuries to have great major league careers.

What a crazy play.

Hamels slow to cover first and then Descalso standing around while Taylor goes to 2nd with nobody covering the base.

T4 — Chris Taylor's trademark speed helps Dodgers strike first. Taylor beats Hamels to bag after hitting grounder to 1B. Seager, meanwhile, rounds 3B & jolts home. Throw from Hamels not in time. Heads-up play from Taylor.

T4 || Dodgers 1, Cubs 0

Hamels really struggling with control tonight.

While I'm thinking of it, is Cole Little named after Hamel or Nat King?

Discuss among yourselves. Answer on the post game show.

T6 — Bellinger hits home run #12 on the year. Plates Pollock, who had already singled in the inning. Hamels' night comes to an end.

B6 — Baez bomb!!! Game tied at 3-3 as Baez drills 369-footer to left. 3-run bomb sends Wrigley crowd into a frenzy.

1st inning - 5th inning, pitchers duel.
6th inning - bombs away for both teams.

Wow.

B6 — 2-out magic continues with yet another 3-run bomb. J-Hey lines one just over the wall in CF. 6 runs on 2 2-out HRs to completely flip the script.

B7 — Cubs pouring on in 7th. Rizzo hits 2-out double to CF to score Bryant after Bryant gets HBP.

If the Cubs hang on to win they will move into a tie for 2nd place with Pittsburgh, 2.0 games behind St. Louis.

T8 — 3-run homers all around. Better yet, 2-out 3-run homers all around. Verdugo smacks 3-run blast off Cishek with 2 outs to pull the Dodgers to within a run.

T8 || Dodgers 6, Cubs 7

An insurance run, or two, would sure look good here.

F — Cubs win! DP on grounder ends game. Strop with the save. Definitely a tale of 2 games, with 12 of the 13 runs scored following the end of the 5th.
