B6 — After KB got hit on a questionable pitch earlier, Bote gets hit on an inside pitch. Bote's furious. Of course, there's been plenty of controversy this season regarding Pirates pitching.

B6 — 3-run jack from Nico! Insane how many RBI he's already racked up. His 2nd dinger in as many games. Cubs have a new franchise records for dingers in a season.

T9 — Maples (who was just called up for the umpteenth time) struggles w/ his command & gets ejected for hitting 2 batters w/ breaking balls. Certainly not intentional, but warning had already been issued.
