Chicago Cubs (79-54) @ Philadelphia Phillies (71-62)

Jose Quintana (11-9, 4.33) vs. Nick Pivetta (7-10, 4.76)

Opener of three-game affair. Cubs enter having won eight of nine. Zobrist batting cleanup. Cubs going without Heyward, who was placed on DL earlier in day.

T3 — Rain falling fairly steadily in Philly. Just 1 combined hit in pitching duel thus far.

T3 — 3 singles so far for Cubs in this inning. Bases juiced with 1 out. Rizzo with a chance to open the floodgates.

T4 — Quintana now 2-2 at plate. His 2nd single puts runners on 1B & 2B with 2 outs.

T5 — Leave it to Baez to break a scoreless drought in an otherwise boring game with a crushed solo shot. #29 for Javy on the year. Scorched out to deep left-center.

Happ's 0-3 so far tonight. He hasn't recorded a multi-hit game since July 14. Going to be interesting to see if he's still a regular starter come crunch time. Heyward's injury could provide Almora with a chance to trump Happ in the pecking order once & for all.

B6 — Quintana catches huge break. Hoskins just misses monster homer. Instead, he skies towering fly ball with plenty of hang time in deep LF.

E6 — Heads-up play by Bote on RBI single by Phillies. He cuts off throw to plate that wouldn't have been in time & catches runner in pickle between 1B & 2B for 3rd out. Phillies tie game, though.

E6 || Cubs 1, Phillies 1

T7 — Murphy gets bloop single to put 2 men on. Hoskins slides in for catch attempt but fails to make the snag.

M7 — Bad base running hurts Cubs. La Stella doubled off at 2B after Bautista makes great catch of hard-hit liner from Baez in RF.

M8 — Another missed opportunity for Cubs. Throwing error gives Cubs new life with 2 outs, but Caratini strikes out with bases loaded to end inning.

M9 — Neris pitches lights out for Phillies in top of 9th. Cubs go down in order. Cubs have over twice as many hits as Phillies but could lose in bottom of 9th.

E9 — De La Rosa & Cishek team up to usher in extras. Cubs have left 19 stranded tonight. Phillies have left only 6. Therefore, Cubs have produced far more offense than Phillies. Phillies lucky to still be in this one.

B10 — Zobrist makes great catch on warning track. Zobrist has played well in RF in recent weeks. Several great reads on hard-hit balls.

F/10 — Cishek plays with fire & gets burned. Cabrera (who was acquired by Phillies near trade deadline) hits walk-off bomb to left-center. Cubs with yet another game in which they score their lone run on a solo HR...just when it looked like those days were behind them.

F/10 || Cubs 1, Phillies 2
