B2 — Cubs have the lead. Back-to-back walks (w/ a steal in b/w) leads to a surprise RBI base knock from Darvish, who feigned a bunt attempt before slapping a single. Happ scores from 2B.

B2 — Castellanos drives home a run w/ a base knock to CF. Heyward previously beat out a throw at 1B on what could've been an inning-ending double play.

T5 — Plenty of homers thus far in this series. Yaz gets in on the action with a 2-run shot to LF that ends up in the basket. Opposite-field jack cuts the Cubs' lead in half.

B5 — 2-out RBI hit by Caratini. Single scores Rizzo from left-center. 2-out walk by Rizzo (who was HBP to lead off the inning) put Rizzo in scoring position.

T6 — Yet another 2-run blast by the Giants. Vogt crushes a moonshot out to RF. 3 2-run bombs for S.F. tonight.

T6 — Just like, the game's tied. Back-to-back bombs. Pillar cranks a solo dinger into the basket beyond CF. So many decent starts by Darvish are ruined simply b/c he gives up too many homers. It's worth pointing out that an error on Darvish when he was trying to cover 1B led to the back-to-back bombs.

T6 — Holland, who was traded to the Cubs by the Giants last month, enters in Darvish's wake & proceeds to give up a 2-run double to Slater. Slater gets thrown out at 3B attempting to stretch it into a triple. Yaz follows that up w/ a double to the warning track in CF.

B6 — Cubs in front. Schwarber hits a comebacker that the pitcher opts to fire to 2B on in the hopes of an inning-ending double play. Rizzo could have easily been thrown out attempting to score, but the pitcher risked. Schwarber beats out the throw at 1B. Rizzo scores.

T7 — Pillar very nearly hits a 3-run bomb off Cishek, but it comes up just short of going out. Caught by Schwarber in the LF well. Lead runner tags up & advances. Men now on 1B & 3B w/ 1 out.

T8 — Kintzler pitching the 8th. W/ 2 outs, he slips on falls while delivering a pitch. Soon afterward, KB suffers a throwing error on what could've been an inning-ending play.

E8 — Kemp nearly comes up w/ an RBI, but Schwarber gets gunned down at home on a great throw from RF. Play at the plate reviewed but upheld. Too close of a call to overturn it.

F — Game over. Flawless save by Kimbrel. What a game. A thriller fit for October played in the dog days of summer.
