Chicago Cubs (64-55) @ Philadelphia Phillies (61-58)

Cole Hamels (6-3, 3.09) vs. Aaron Nola (10-3, 3.67)

Second game of 3-game set. Hamels pitching against his former team. Heyward out due to a minor knee injury.

B1 — Harper jacks 2-run no-doubter off Hamels. Hoskins led off the frame w/ a single. Harper's dinger comes w/ 1 out.

T2 — Javy very nearly pulls off one of his trademark slides on a steal attempt. He briefly comes off the bag after using a swim move to avoid a tag, and he gets tagged out.

B2 — Phillies racking Hamels in the 2nd. RBI single by Nola (the pitcher) followed by sac. fly from Hoskins. Walk & double started the inning. Double off the wall in left-center by Realmuto puts runners on 2B & 3B w/ 2 outs.

B2 || Cubs 0, Phillies 4

E2 — Hamels gets an inning-ending strikeout w/ the bases loaded to prevent the Cubs from falling into a really deep hole.

T3 — Another rousing ovation for Hamels (who received one when taking the mound for the 1st time) when he steps up to the plate. He's making his 1st start in Philadelphia since being traded by the Phillies in 2015.

M3 — Nola strikes out Hamels & Kemp in back-to-back ABs after Caratini's 1-out single.

B3 — Kingery leads off w/ a double. Quinn then shows off his speed by blazing down the line for a bunt single.

B3 — RBI base knock by Hernandez. The era of Charlie Manuel serving as the hitting coach for the Phils is off to a great start. Hamels might not be on the mound for much longer.

B3 — Definitely not how Hamels scripted his return to Philly. He makes a mental mistake & doesn't cover 1B on a chopper fielded by Rizzo. Run comes home on IF single. Hamels pulled from the game.

B3 || Cubs 0, Phillies 6

B3 — Realmuto has been great to start this series. He continues his greatness w/ a grand slam that's just fair down the LF line. Mills gives it up.

Just a reminder that a team that was so desperate for an offensive uptick that it fired its hitting coach in mid-August has already scored 10 runs through three innings against the Cubs.

A couple of interesting exchanges w/ umps for the Cubs. Kemp seems to get an apology from Marty Foster (who made the blatantly bad strike-three call last night). Then, Castellanos passionately argues w/ tonight's home-plate ump about a groundout that Castellanos claims hit off his foot (& therefore should've been foul).

B6 — Mammoth blast from Harper into the upper deck in RF. Solo shot marks his 2nd long ball of the night.

T7 — It wouldn't be a Cubs game w/o a solo homer by the North Siders. KB swats a dinger out to CF. Cubs won't get shut out.

B8 — Mills still pitching. He's essentially getting a start out of this. Rain in the area. Both teams assuredly hoping to get this game over w/ it before a downpour starts.
