Chicago Cubs (52-37) @ San Francisco Giants (48-46)

Mike Montgomery (3-3, 3.68) vs. Johnny Cueto (3-1, 1.95)

Rubber match of three-game series. Cueto (fresh off DL stint) facing off against Montgomery. Bryant makes return from DL. Immediately inserted in starting lineup.

M1 — Tough inning for Cubs. They get runners on 1B & 2B with 0 outs but can't score. Bryant strikes out in his first AB since coming off DL.

M1 || Cubs 0, Giants 0

The 1st-inning error by Zobrist was the 1st one suffered by him this year. It was scored as a "bobble." Safe to say that this series won't be remembered for its top-notch defense. 1st 2 games heavily impacted by defensive mistakes. Even sure-handed Rizzo suffered 2 errors in same inning in game 1.

M2 — Montgomery better with the bat than the ball so far. He hits single to right-center to put runners on corners with 2 outs. Zobrist grounds out to end inning, though.

M6 — Rizzo unable to beat out dribbler hit on infield grass. Took him too long to get out of batter's box. Groundout comes with bases juiced. Cubs fail to tie game in productive 6th.

E9 — Really close call on final out of 9th. Baez gets cute (which he's apt to do) & makes elegant toss to Russell for force out at 2B that Crawford nearly beats on slide. Giants choose not to challenge. 2nd extra-innings game of this series.

E11 — Russell continues his solid defensive outing. Diving stop on grounder leads to inning-ending out. Morrow shuts down Giants in 11th.

B13 — The bright sunshine has made for some interesting plays in the OF today. Zobrist has to awkwardly jump to make a grab of a deep fly ball by d'Arnaud. Norwood follows that with walk of Belt. 2 down & man on 1B.

F/13 — Posey hits walk-off single to deep RF. Baptism by fire for Norwood. Cubs lose out on chance to win 4th straight series. Combined 25 hits in series finale.
