Cincinnati Reds (39-50) @ Chicago Cubs (50-36)

Luis Castillo (5-8, 5.53) vs. Jon Lester (11-2, 2.24)

Rubber match of three-game set. Cubs coming off big comeback win on Saturday. Tale of two starters. Reds' Castillo has struggled this season. Cubs' Lester is Cy Young front runner.

B1 — Baez gets a rowdy ovation as he steps up to plate after 4-5 outing yesterday. He responds by fighting off tough pitch and hitting it down RF line for double to put men on 2B & 3B.

M2 — Cubs pull off rundown to get DP. Rizzo corrals hard-hit grounder near 1B & steps on bag for force out. Then chases down Suarez for 2nd out. Lester already through 2 frames. He's thrown just 11 pitches so far.

E2 — Heyward gets rung up to end inning & isn't pleased with the called strike 3. Russell left stranded on 2B after hitting double with no outs. Cubs fail to get ball out of IF after going up 2-0.

E3 — Similar ending to B3 as T3. Contreras gets thrown out by a mile when attempting to turn single into double. Peraza, who got thrown out to end T3, applies tag on Contreras.

T5 — Comedy of errors on a series of bad throws lets Hamilton come all the way around from 1B on steal attempt to score. Scored as a double error to Contreras & Almora. 2 bad throws lead to Reds taking lead.

M5 — Hamilton's base running leads to only run for Reds in inning. Strange that the Reds seem to have several players who play their best baseball against the Cubs, with Hamilton being one of them.

T7 — Lester pulled after 6.1 innings. He gave up 4 runs on 6 hits & 3 walks today. This'll be the 1st time since May 23 that Lester will fail to earn a winning decision for a start.

E7 — Another clutch hit by Baez. Hard-hit ball up middle scores tying run. Heyward takes advantage of lazy relay throw by Hamilton & comes home to score. Baez then takes 3B on bad throw home (scored as error). Cubs get revenge for botched attempt at outing Hamilton on earlier steal.

T8 — Heads-up play by Edwards after corralling bunt. He guns to 3B for tag out. Puts a damper on Reds' chances of tying this game.

Safe to say the Cubs haven't been involved in another game this season in which base running has been important as it has been today. An interesting mixture of smart, dumb and lucky base-running decisions has served as the story of the game.

T8 — Wilson gets critical K of Votto. He's now being replaced by Cishek. One positive takeaway from this series has been the solid usage of the bullpen by Maddon. The recent slump against the Reds & the Dodgers, as well as the wacky Twins series, featured bad bullpen usage by the Cubs coaching staff. The second half of this home stand has been a different story.

B9 — Maddon challenges play at plate. Gennett went home with it on grounder hit back to him. Reds catcher's foot on edge of plate. Might not have been touching it by the time he got control. Would be shocking if the out call gets overturned.

F/10 — Cubs win arguably the weirdest game of their season. Walk-off walk of Bote brings in winning run. 3 walks in 10th, as Stephens is left in to deal with the mess. Strange game that featured an abundance of base-running blunders & defensive bloopers. Cubs take 2 of 3 from Reds.
