T1 — Cubs jumping all over Kingham at start. Leadoff walk of Rizzo followed by Zobrist double. J-Hey then drives in Rizzo on groundout, & Baez follows that with a chopper that brings in a run. Baez safe on fielding error.

T1 || Cubs 2, Pirates 0

T1 — Baez toys with rattled Bucs & scores because of it. Bad throw on what should've been an easy pick-off in a rundown leads to Baez scoring. Happ now at 3B.

T1 — Pirates probably feeling like they need a do-over. Another misplay at 2B leads to infield single. Cubs already up 4-0.

M1 — Cubs score 4 runs in an inning when the ball was hit into the OF only once. 50+ pitches already for Kingham. 2 errors put Bucs into big hole.

T2 — Bucs bring in new pitcher in 2nd inning but are still struggling. Brault enduring rough inning, including single, double, IBB & run walked in.

M2 — Another bases-loaded walk issued by Brault. Pirates suffering about as frustrating a start to a game imaginable.

T3 — Game currently delayed after the home-plate umpire was clearly shaken up after getting hit in the mask by a foul ball.

B3 — Smooth pick-off move by Hamels. Guns over to 1B just as runner takes off for 2B. Thrown out easily.

B5 — Happ makes unbelievable diving catch to start inning. 2nd game in a row he's come up with a remarkable defensive play.

A couple of solid debuts tonight for Cubs pitchers. Hamels fans 9 in 5.0 IP. Of course, if not for sizable lead by Cubs, he likely would've pitched longer. Kintzler gives up 1 hit in 1.1 IP after getting acquired just yesterday.

F — Chatwood pitches in relief. Gives up 1 hit & 1 BB. Game-ending DP keeps Chatwood scoreless out of the bullpen. Cubs win very long game over Bucs. Chicago gets 15 total hits. Several Cubs batters with as many as 6 plate appearances.
