T1 — Darvish off to a really rocky start. Following a leadoff single, Votto smacks an RBI double into the RF corner. A few ABs later, Aquino lofts a 2-run jack. Another single follows.

T1 || Reds 3, Cubs 0

B1 — Schwarber comes through w/ 2-out RBI double off wall in CF. His hot streak continues. Castellanos (who walked earlier in inning) scores from 1B.

B1 || Reds 3, Cubs 1

E2 — Weird balk called on Gray. He pitches from a windup w/ a man on 1B & stops to check out something on the bottom of his cleat. Gray laughs it off & ends up striking out Darvish to end the inning & leave the runner stranded.

B3 — Triple for Schwarber, who's carrying the Cubs in this series. He scores Castellanos again w/ his 2nd extra-base hit of the night.

M4 — Darvish has bounced back really well from his shaky start. 8 straight Ks now (which is a Cubs record). He has 11 strikeouts in all.

T5 — Darvish's K streak ends 2 short of the MLB record, but it ends w/ a bang. KB makes a stellar leaping snag to rob batter of a line-drive hit. His knee must be feeling much better.

T5 || Reds 3, Cubs 2

F — Cubs fall, ending their 5-game winning streak. Outside of Schwarber, not much offense for the Cubs tonight. Darvish's rough 1st inning overshadows his brilliance thereafter.
