T1 — Baez wastes no time in breaking Cubs out of their slump. He rips 2-run HR over wall in LF. Line drive skirts out of park to put Cubs up 2-0.

T4 — Baez nearly beats out grounder to 1B. White Sox first baseman panics a little when deciding what to do with ball. Barely tags bag in time.

T5 — Zobrist comes through in the clutch with 2-run single up middle. Misjudged liner in previous AB changed game completely.

M5 — Bryant looks at a good pitch to suffer inning-ending K. Cubs get runners on corners, thanks to a couple wild pitches, but leave them stranded. Cubs push 3 runs across to take lead, though.

E8 — Awesome job by Cubs' bullpen so far tonight. Chavez & Wilson combine for flawless 8th. Potential save opportunity in 9th for Cubs (who don't have a true closer on active roster).

T9 — Schwarber with big hit to lead off 9th. Ground-rule double leads to Gore pinch running. Speedster then reaches 3B without even having to attempt to steal, as passed ball takes him there.
