T5 — Monstrous 2-run blast from Rizzo! Hits off scoreboard beyond left-center. Little leaguers assuredly in awe after that one.

M7 — Throwing error on IF single from Javy followed by another throwing error on the same play. Cubs then have men on 2B & 3B w/ 2 outs, but Schwarber strikes out to end inning.

B9 — Kimbrel pitching in the 9th after getting activated off the IL earlier in the day. On the very 1st pitch Kimbrel throws, Marte hits a massive solo blast out to LF.

B9 — Soon after getting taken deep, Kimbrel lets a pitch get away from him, & it drills a batter in the foot.

B9 — Kimbrel gets a K for the 1st out. Meanwhile, the little leaguers sitting behind home plate have been impersonating his signature stretch pose.

B9 — Kimbrel gets a 15-pitch return to the mound before being replaced by Strop. Back-to-back strikeouts for Kimbrel before his outing ends.

F — Strop walks a batter but then gets a strikeout on a foul tip to end it. Technically the Cubs' 1st road series win over a divisional opponent this season.
