Cubs taking the all-white look to the extreme. Even the batting helmets are solid white.

E1 — KB sends a fly ball to deep LF that hangs in the air for a while. Fans get excited, but it's caught for the 3rd out.

B4 — Castellanos smacks a 1-out single for the Cubs' 1st hit. Bryant follows that up w/ perhaps the 1st bunt attempt of his career. He fouls it up, & it's caught for the 1st out. Perhaps the bunt was a result of the wind blowing in.
