T1 — Suarez hits a 2-out solo bomb off Hendricks. His reputation as a Cub killer continues to grow. Fans boo Puig as he steps up to the plate b/c of the Strop incident from a few weeks ago.

M1 — Soft collision b/w Russell & KB (who's playing in RF tonight) on popup. Could've been worse. Yet another scary moment involving Bryant playing in the OF.

T6 — Reds get one back. Puig hits a homer just over the wall in LF. Towering shot falls into the basket at the top of the wall. Puig booed all the way around the bases.

B6 — J-Hey hits a base knock a few ABs after Rizzo's double. Russell then gets walked to load the bases. Bote with a chance now to increase the Cubs' lead.

T7 — Cishek in the game. He immediately gives up the game-tying home run. Casali goes yard to LF. All 3 of the Reds' runs tonight are from solo jacks.

T7 — Defensive blunders lead to Reds going in front. Baez commits rare fielding error on hard-hit grounder. Bote then suffers the same fate on the next play.

E7 — Caratini makes solid contact on a pitch but skies a fly ball to deep RF. Naturally, Puig showboats after making the inning-ending catch.

T8 — Caratini & Rizzo chase after a popup in foul territory, & Rizzo whiffs on the catch. Reds make them pay w/ ensuing RBI double. If Rizzo had caught the popup, the inning would've been over. Not sure why this is, but the Cubs seem to have the worst luck against the Reds.

M8 — Another 2-out hit increases Reds' lead. Heyward then caps off the inning w/ a smooth diving catch in CF. Unfortunately, quality defense hasn't been a theme for the Cubs tonight.

T9 — Strop pitching to Puig. Everyone in Wrigley likely sitting on the edges of their seats for this AB.

T9 — Puig wins the battle by smacking a single to right-center. Strop then tries (& fails) to pick Puig off at 1B.

T9 — Strop throws over twice more. Puig has a little fun by delaying the game to tidy up the dirt w/ his cleats.

M9 — Strop gets inning-ending K. He's definitely relieved that Puig didn't steal on him.

F — Cubs lose. 3 opposing homers & 2 self-inflicted defensive errors make the difference for the Cubs tonight. Frustrating losses against the Reds continue to pile up.
