Cubs vs. Tigers: Game 2 Thread

Chicago Cubs (71-53) @ Detroit Tigers (52-74)

Jon Lester (13-5, 3.72) vs. Francisco Liriano (3-8, 4.72)

Second of two games in this series. Cubs aiming to break strange streak of scoring on nothing but one solo homer per game in their last five contests. Murphy making Cubs debut in leadoff spot.

M1 — Murphy flies out in his 1st AB as a Cub. Chicago goes 3 up, 3 down.

M2 — Contreras strikes out to end inning. His offensive performance has seemed to be in gradual decline since his epic game against the White Sox in mid-May. Basically just a defensive asset at this point. He has some of the worst offensive numbers in the NL this month.

B2 — Tigers score on RBI single. Happ outs runner at 3B with great throw to provide Lester with some breathing room.

E3 — Murphy makes his 1st mark as a Cub, helping turn a 6-4-3 DP to end inning. Baez already settled in at SS, a position still plays occasionally but used to play all the time.

M4 — Another 3 up, 3 down inning for Cubs at plate. Only 1 hit through 4 innings. Sort of hard to believe they're in this bad of a slump.

T5 — Bote magic! A two-run HR breaks Cubs' solo HR streak & gives them much-needed lead.

How does Chicago break out of its solo-homer streak? By hitting a TWO-run homer. Classic Cubs.

Cubs have now homered in 7 straight games. That's a season high for them.

Cubs have just 1 hit with RISP in the last week...& it was by Murphy...in just his 3rd AB with the club.

T6 — Contreras finally comes up with big hit after hitting himself in batting helmet in frustration during AB. Infield dribbler drives in run.

E6 — Lester gets pulled after giving up 7 hits in 5.2 innings. Not exactly a great start, but he's in line for the win. Cishek gets Cubs out of inning.

B6 — Call of out at 1B on 3rd out being challenged by Tigers. Cishek might've not touched bag in time.

E6 — Call stands. Probably not enough evidence to overturn it

B8 — A lot of frustration in tonight's game. Plenty of helmets being hit with bats & Edwards throwing his glove at dugout wall after lackluster relief appearance.

E8 — Cubs taken for just 1 run in frightening inning featuring multiple pitching changes. Strop walks in a run but forces 2 clutch outs to limit damage.

T9 — Baez gets hit by foul ball on leg during his AB. In visible pain but able to battle through it & continue AB.

T9 — What a way to bounce back after brief injury scare. Baez jacks 3-run bomb & is kind of gimpy rounding bases.

T9 — Back-to-back blasts for Cubbies! Rizzo cranks solo jack after Tigers inexplicably decide not to make pitching change. Rizzo now has 20 HR & 80 RBI on season.
