Cubs vs. Giants: Game 1 Thread

Chicago Cubs (51-36) @ San Francisco Giants (47-45)

Kyle Hendricks (5-8, 4.27) vs. Andrew Suarez (3-5, 3.92)

Opener of three-game set by the bay. Cubs have six-game West Coast road trip before All-Star break. Hendricks looking to turn things around on mound after recent struggles. Suarez has been solid lately. He's lost just one of his eight starts since May.

T3 — Happ leads off with double. Hendricks then attempts to lay down his 1st sacrifice bunt of season but bunts it foul with 2 strikes for out.

T3 — Almora singles to LF to put runners on corners with 1 out. Russell now at bat with a chance to add to his recent RBI swing.

M3 — Cubs catch a break. Russell grounds to SS for easy DP, but Hanson throws high to 1B. Belt has to jump to make catch & comes down with it after Russell reaches safely. Russell credited with RBI on fielder's choice. Cubs strike 1st.

E3 — Suarez gets 1st ML hit. Cubs force Giants into 2 straight grounders after that to get out of inning.

B5 — Inexcusable defensive display by Cubs leads to Giants tying game. Terrible pick-off attempt by Hendricks gets away from Rizzo. Hanson (who's really fast) motors around from 1B to score. Baez loafed to get ball & didn't display much urgency on throw home.

Questionable decision by scorers to give Rizzo error on play. Pick-off throw from Hendricks was way off mark. Rizzo already has 2 errors tonight.

M6 — Russell leads off with double to right, but Cubs strand him. With 2 outs & runners on corners, Zobrist flies out to RF.

E6 — Hendricks breezes through 6th. His most efficient start in a while. 6 Ks through 6 IP.

M9 — Zobrist pulls a 2-out double to LF, but Bote grounds out to SS to end inning. Really fast, uneventful game heading into B9.

B9 — Hendricks gets pulled after 8.1 IP. Great start for him. 8 K & just 5 H & 1 BB allowed. Unfortunately for him, a win is out of the question.

E9 — Rosario gets a pair of outs after entering game in relief. Giants leave runner stranded. Extra innings coming at AT&T Park. 2nd straight extra-innings game for Cubs.

T10 — Heyward gets 1-out BB. In next AB, Almora swats a towering shot just foul down the LF line. Ironic that a game so devoid of offense has featured several close calls on deep foul balls by both teams.

B10 — Cishek brought into the game with 1 out & nobody on & immediately makes a mistake. 1st pitch to Pence driven to deep center for stand-up triple.

E10 — Very composed performance by Cishek after giving up triple. 2 straight swinging Ks get Cubs out of jam. 11th inning coming.

B11 — Giants have another great scoring chance. 1B & 3B with 1 out after 2 straight 1-out singles. Cubs will look to escape jam for 2nd consecutive inning. Strop coming in to pitch.

F/11 — Cubs opt to intentionally walk Crawford to bring Sandoval to plate. Kung Fu Panda walks it off for Giants with RBI single to LF on 0-2 pitch. Cubs get just 4 hits in loss. However, if not for disastrous pick-off play in 5th, they likely would've won.
