M1 — Heyward gets 2-out single, but that's all for Cubs in opening inning. Junis fans 2.

T2 — Dumb base-running choice by Contreras, attempting to stretch a shallow to single RF into a double. Gunned down at 2B. Plenty of base base running by the Cubs in recent games.

Funny thing about the Contreras play is that he appeared to beat the throw at 2B, but he was definitely beaten by the throw. Cubs opted not to challenge this early in game but probably would've won the challenge. What's interesting is that in this age of challenges, tags have to be applied so much more aggressively because umpires can't just give benefit-of-the-doubt out calls to defenders for throws that clearly beat runners.

E2 — Royals strike 1st on RBI single by Escobar. Could've been worse if not for diving stop by Baez at 3B earlier in inning.

T4 — Zobrist credited with triple after misplay by right fielder. No error, though. Big leadoff hit for Cubs.

T4 — Pitch gets away from Perez behind plate. Zobrist (a former Royal) comes home to score. Game tied.

T4 — Tarp coming out as rain delay gets underway. Tough situation because it's the fourth inning, which means that a lengthy delay could bring an end to both starting pitchers' nights.

E5 — Shaky inning for Hamels. Gives up single & hits batter with 2 outs to load bases. He escapes, though.

F — Strop dominates in 9th with heavy rain falling. Cubs top Royals in opener of 3-game series. Hamels fares well in 2nd Cubs start.
