Cubs vs. Reds: Game 2 Thread

Chicago Cubs (23-18) @ Cincinnati Reds (15-30)

Kyle Hendricks (3-3, 3.20) vs. Luis Castillo (3-4, 6.02)

Game one of a day-night doubleheader at the Great American Ballpark. Cubs following up blowout win. Chance of rain later today, but this game should be fine. Almora leading off for Cubs. Heyward still coming off bench.

T1 — Great start by Cubs. 2 singles. Almora gets hurt rounding 2B to put a damper on it. Runs it off. Will stay in game. Tweaked ankle on wet infield dirt.

T1 || Cubs 0, Reds 0

M1 — Russell did a terrible job of avoiding the tag right there. Didn't even try to skirt the basepath. Double play grounder from Schwarber ends inning. Despite their dominance, Cubs left a good many men on base last night. Off to inauspicious start with that today.

M1 || Cubs 0, Reds 0

M2 — 2-out double to left for Happ. He continues to hit well at Cincy. Despite his struggles, he's one of the best opposite-field hitters for Cubs. Inning-ending groundout in next AB though. Cubs still scoreless.

M2 || Cubs 0, Reds 1

T3 — Almora with a perfect bloop single in between 3 Reds fielders. Clearly has shaken on the ankle injury. Bryant up with a chance to advance him.

T3 || Cubs 0, Reds 1

T3 — Perhaps Almora-Bryant is the right 1-2 punch for the Cubs at the top of the order. Double to deep right-center for Bryant. Almora motors home safely. Bryant continues his great week. Leading NL in OPS.

T3 || Cubs 1, Reds 1

T6 — 3rd career double for Hendricks scores Happ from 3rd. Tie ballgame. Bullpen goes crazy. Happ arguably plays his best baseball against the Reds. Fitting for the former Cincinnati Bearcat.

T6 || Cubs 2, Reds 2

Pretty much sums up that bench-clearing fracas...
