Cubs vs. Phillies: Game 2 Thread

Chicago Cubs (79-55) @ Philadelphia Phillies (72-62)

Kyle Hendricks (10-10, 3.86) vs. Zach Eflin (9-5, 3.99)

Second installment of three-game set. Cubs coming off disheartening loss, in which they outperformed Phillies but struggled too much at plate with men on base. Bryant making his return to Cubs' lineup. He's batting fifth.

T1 — Great start for Cubs. Murphy leads off with double. Baez then reaches 1B on chopper. SS makes silly throw that results in error. Murphy comes in to score. Zobrist next smacks double to LF to score Baez.

T1 — Anticlimactic return AB for Bryant. Swinging K on 4 pitches.

B5 — Wonderful running throw by Baez to out runner at 1B. Great job by Rizzo to stretch & make grab, too.

Quality start from Hendricks. 6 innings of 1-run ball with 4 Ks. In line to garner a winning record by becoming 11-10 overall.

T7 — Happ goes yard for his 1st hit of game. 14th bomb of year goes out to right-center. Would be nice if he could string together more production at the plate other than the occasional solo HR.

T8 — Solid return for KB. He's got 2 hits to his name. Nice swing on lofted single to right-center in 8th.

T8 — Interesting moment as Joe West scolds Phillies reliever for looking at "cheat sheet" before AB. Rare to see pitcher use something that's typically used by outfielders when trying to figure out how to shift for certain batters.

F — Practically flawless performance for Cubs in dominant win over Phillies. Great way for them to mark Bryant's return. Solid bounce-back performance after tough day at plate yesterday. Chicago becomes 1st NL to reach 80 wins.
