Chicago Cubs (61-44) @ Pittsburgh Pirates (55-52)

Jon Lester (12-3, 3.06) vs. Jameson Taillon (7-8, 3.73)

Opener of quick two-game set for Cubs and Pirates at PNC Park. First game post-trade deadline. Pirates enter trailing Cubs by seven games in NL Central.

E2 — Pirates get a couple big hits & put men on 2B & 3B with 1 out. However, a hard-hit ball to 3B leads to runner being caught up in jam on 3B line & getting tagged out. Lester with big K after that to escape jam.

E2 || Cubs 0, Pirates 0

B3 — Pirates jump on Lester in 3rd. 1 AB after Freese hit a double off wall in RF that was inches from getting out, Cervelli hits 2-run HR to LF that clears the wall by mere inches.

E5 — Happ channels J-Hey & Schwarbs with dart to home plate for inning-ending out. Pirates score a run in inning to retake lead, though.

T7 — Rizzo drilled on hand by pitch. Barreled over in pain. Maddon comes out to check on him. He's able to shake it off & take 1B.

B8 — Polanco hits leadoff home run off Wilson to give Bucs a little breathing room. Strange that Maddon still occasionally puts Wilson in during tight-knit situations late in games. Doesn't seem to be his calling card.

T9 — Russell drills liner to deep right-center to score Bote. Russell takes advantage of bobble in OF & hustles to 3B for 2nd triple of year. 5th extra-base hit for Cubs tonight.

T9 — Scratch all the triple talk. Russell came off bag briefly, & Freese tagged him out. Umpires change call after replay review. Interesting decision because replays weren't very clear.

T9 — Could be critical blow for Cubs. Would've had a man on 3B with 0 outs & in need of 1 run to stay alive. Now, they're essentially starting from scratch.

F — Game ends on chopper hit by Zobrist to 1B that Russell maybe would've been able to score on from 3B. Deflating loss for Cubs after Russell's triple overturned. Cubs now 4-6 in last 10 games.
