T1 — Horrible comedy of errors for the Cubs. Contreras (who's known for making unnecessary throws from behind the plate) throws to 2B on ball four. Throw sails into CF. Runner reaches 3B. Almora's throw back into the IF off the mark. Run scores. 2 throwing errors on a walk.

T1 || Pirates 1, Cubs 0

Almora makes another shaky throw back into the IF after catching a flyout. Maybe he lost all his defensive skill after cutting his hair, like Samson.

T1 — Standup triple for Reyes hit to the wall in right-center. 2 more runs come in to score. Awful start to this game for the Cubs.

T1 — RBI double hit down the 1B line. Already a mound visit for Lester. Early hole to climb out of.

B1 — Mammoth solo shot from Contreras to make up for his bad throw. Just like that, the Cubs trail by just 1.

B1 — WOW! 3 homers in the 1st for the Cubs. Hoerner hits a go-ahead 2-run jack in the 1st pitch he faces at Wrigley.

M3 — Bote recovers after laying out for a diving stop & fires home to out an attempted scorer. Cubs still in the lead.

B3 — Contreras w/ his 2nd beastly blast of the day. Solo jack smacked out to the batter's eye.

B3 — Grand slam! Rizzo hammers grand slam out to RF. Video game-like performance by the Cubs so far today.

A 2-run error (yet another costly defensive mistake by Contreras) helped matters for the Pirates.

M5 — Lester forces an inning-ending groundout up the middle to escape the jam. In a ballgame like this, the difference b/w a 3-run lead & a 1-run lead is huge.

B5 — Bases-clearing double from Heyward. This is already perhaps the most dominant offensive performance by the Cubs this season, & it's only the 5th inning.

B5 — Cubs continuing to light up the Bucs. Heyward scores on bloop single by Kemp, & Castellanos drives home another run w/ an RBI double.

F — Highest run total of the season for the Cubs. 5 homers & 7-run rally w/ 2 outs highlights Cubs' dominance.
