Chicago Cubs (80-55) @ Philadelphia Phillies (72-63)

Jon Lester (14-5, 3.67) vs. Aaron Nola (15-3, 2.10)

Rubber game of three-game set in Philadelphia. Battle of two Cy Young contenders on mound. Bryant batting cleanup and playing in right field in his second game back from disabled list.

M1 — Bryant gets struck out to end inning. Rizzo left stranded after drawing walk. Nola with 2 Ks in opening frame.

B1 — Not sure why runners continue to test Schwarber's arm. He guns down Quinn at 3B after rounding 2B on what should've been a routine double.

T3 — Boom! Murphy clocks high pitch for towering HR to RF. Amazing how solid he's been against quality starting pitching since coming to Chicago.

There have been a lot of positive takeaways for the Cubs & their acquisition of Murphy, but the most important one is the fact the Cubs have finally found a true leadoff man.

Nola has already been taken deep twice today (Murphy in the 3rd & Rizzo in the 4th). He had given up just 8 HR in his last 27 starts before today. Cubs' explosive offense continues to torment opposing pitching.

Cubs have more than twice as many strikeouts (8) at the plate than hits (3) so far today...yet they lead 2-0, thanks to a pair of solo jacks. Very symbolic of the state of today's MLB.

E4 — Phillies load bases against Lester by way of 3 singles. However, Nola grounds out to end inning. Interestingly, Nola swung on 1st pitch. Odd that Phillies wouldn't have their pitcher show more patience at plate.

T6 — Schwarber garners triple for 2nd game in a row. Bautista misjudges screamer hit down 1B line that reaches RF corner. Schwarber now has 3 triples on season. Rizzo scores from 1B on play, & Nola gets pulled from game.

T6 || Cubs 4, Phillies 0

B6 — Happ lays out for attempted diving grab of double but comes up short. Ball bounces off turf & hits Happ in mouth. He remains in game, though.

E6 — Great catch by Happ not long after getting hit in mouth. He leaps in front of CF wall to make great grab while colliding with partition.

T7 — Happ follows up great catch with leadoff triple off top of wall in deep CF. Much like Schwarber's triple last night.

T8 — Baez hits Cubs' 3rd triple of game. He speeds up & slows down several times en route to reaching 3B. He now has a BA of .300.

T8 — Happ hits 2-run double for his 2nd extra-base hit of game. His 1st quality offensive performance in over a month and a half today.

T9 — Russell comes in & skies towering fly ball to deep right-center in 1st AB since returning from injury. Good sign for Cubs.

F — Cubs take rubber match, as well as season series, against the Phillies. Phillies actually attain 1 more hit than Cubs on day, but Cubs' great hitting with men on base combines with 3 solo dingers & Lester's dominance to result in victory for North Siders.

F || Cubs 8, Phillies 1
