Philadelphia Phillies (28-19) @ Chicago Cubs (27-18)

Zach Eflin (5-4, 2.89) vs. Jose Quintana (4-3, 3.68)

Second installment of a 4-game set. Baez out for the second game in a row with a minor foot injury.

M1 — A double by Segura (who had the game-tying hit in the 9th last night) doesn't pay off for the Phils. Quintana escapes inning unscathed.

B1 — Kris Bryant is such an underrated base runner. He rounds 3B with perfect time as Segura fires throw to 1B on routine grounder. He slides in safely to give Cubs the lead after advancing from 2B to home on a simple groundout.

B1 || Phillies 0, Cubs 1

T3 — Great diving catch by Heyward in RF. Able to make catch just before ball hits grass for nice web gem.

B4 — Really unorthodox ground-rule double. Bryant lofts one into LF corner that ricochets over wall & bounces off another wall & back into field of play. Umps decide that Schwarber (who score on hit) would've scored even if the ball did not leave the park. Phillies manager Gabe Kapler doesn't agree.

B4 || Phillies 0, Cubs 2

E4 — Schwarber sent back to third base following replay review, which is the right call. No guarantee Schwarber would've scored if ball hadn't been declared dead. More controversy ensues, as Rizzo seems to swing & miss at strike 3 before ump declares it to be foul tip. Rizzo then flies out to end inning.

E4 || Phillies 0, Cubs 1

E6 — Schwarber skies high fly ball to end inning & leave runner stranded. Eflin pitching well.

T7 — Russell (who's playing SS) makes great play on tough grounder behind 2B & tosses to Descalso (who pulls off barehanded grab to get lead runner.

T7 — Phillies take the lead. Edwards struggles before coming out with runners on 2nd & 3rd with 2 outs. Kintzler then gives up 2-run single to McCutchen.

B8 — Cubs have a chance to tie game. Bote hustles to beat out throw from Franco after Franco makes diving stop at 3B. Bote safe at 1B. Runners on 1B & 2B with 2 outs.

E8 — Schwarber fails to come through with clutch hit. Grounder to 2B ends inning. No 8th-inning magic like last night.

M9 — Kyle Ryan redeems himself after giving up losing HR last night. Get clutch strikeout to end inning & leave RISP stranded.

B9 — Cubs gearing up for potential walk-off win. Rizzo cranks double into RF corner to advance to 3B.

B9 — Long AB for Contreras ends in flyout to shallow RF. Bryant unable to tag up. Heyward intentionally walked to set up potential double play. Almora at the plate now with 1 out.

B9 — Almora gets the job done with dribbler to 1B side. Phils pitcher quick to field it but not quick enough to get force out at plate. Bryant scores to tie game.

F — Ballgame! Storybook ending with Javy (who was not expected to play with heel injury) comes in to pinch hit & wastes no time slapping winning single to RF.

F || Phillies 2, Cubs 3
