Chicago Cubs (65-47) @ Kansas City Royals (34-78)

Mike Montgomery (3-4, 3.90) vs. Brad Keller (4-4, 3.39)

Second matchup of three-game series. Montgomery pitching for Cubs. He consistently pitched well against Royals when he was with Mariners. Contreras not starting tonight for Chicago.

T1 — Rare base-running mistake by Baez. Gets caught in rundown & tagged out on 3B line after Heyward chopper. Bote makes up for it in next AB with triple off wall in deep CF. Bote's 1st career triple scores 2 runs.

T1 || Cubs 2, Royals 0
