M1 — Baez creates scoring chance with steal of 2B that featured error that let him reach 3B. However, with runners on corners & 2 outs, Happ strikes out swinging to end inning. Hard to remember the last time Happ came up with a clutch 2-out hit with RISP.

E1 — Dickerson lays down gutsy leadoff bunt & reaches 2B on throwing error. Quintana buckles down & collects 3 straight outs after that.

T2 — Schwarber powers HR out to RF. Kind of uncanny at this point. Cubs have scored 4 runs this series, & all 4 have been from early-inning solo jacks.

B2 — Interesting turn of events. Quintana catches Diaz in rundown with perfect throw-over. Then, Happ has ball slip from his glove on potential great running catch in CF. Runner now at 2B with 2 outs.

M4 — Taillon makes quick work of Cubs again in 4th. 2 Ks & a groundout. Cubs continue to underwhelm at plate in this series. The off day tomorrow should definitely do them some good.

E7 — Amazing cut-off throw by Schwarber from OF leads to Newman being gunned down at home. Pirates challenge potential blocking of plate. Call stands. Cubs-Pirates games seem to breed controversial plays at plate.

T8 — Baez hits 2-out double off wall in RF. He then gets caught way off bag & gets chased back by catcher. Somehow, Baez makes it back without getting tagged out. However, his awkward feet-first slide leaves him a little shaken up. Baez stays in game, though.

M8 — Baez left stranded, as Caratini strikes out swinging to end inning. Cubs should feel fortunate that Baez wasn't hurt on a play that shouldn't have even happened. No reason for him to be straying that far from 2B with game tied in 8th inning.

M9 — Bote flies out to right-center to usher in bottom of 9th. Pirates will have chance to walk it off.

E9 — Fitting with the series, Cubs turn DP on grounder to bring game into extras.

M10 — Cubs go in order in 10th. Pirates will look to redeem themselves in bottom of 10th.

E10 — Cubs get out of jam. Schwarber robs potential leadoff HR, & Strop remains composed after 1-out double & HBP.

T11 — Russell gets gunned down leaning off 3B. Pirates read bunt play. Not a great job by Butterfield to let Russell stray that far from bag.

F/11 — Symbolic ending. After Cubs live & die by solo HR all series long, Pirates finally get one of their own, & it ends series in winning fashion for Pittsburgh. Missed opportunities on offense in extras for Cubs doom them. They split series.

Only 9 runs scored all series. 1st time in 60 years that less than 10 runs have been scored in 4-game series. Cubs also become 1st team in live-ball era to score 4 runs via 4 solo jacks in 4-game series.
