Arizona Diamondbacks (56-46) @ Chicago Cubs (58-42)

Robbie Ray (3-2, 5.37) vs. Jon Lester (12-3, 3.14)

Third matchup of four-game series at Friendly Confines. Lester coming off rough start and looking to bounce back. Baez and Bryant, who are both banged up, not in starting lineup.

M1 — Good start for Lester. 2-out single by Goldschmidt serves as his only blemish. Strange feature of inning was D-backs showing bunt on every 1st pitch.

M1 || Diamondbacks 0, Cubs 0

It seems like it was blowing out on that Pollock homer.

E1 — Cubs waste one-out double to RF by Almora. 2 straight swinging Ks after that.

B4 — Cubs take 1st lead of series. Almora leads off with double to RF. Zobrist then smacks hit up middle to score him.

Well, it only took 21 Innings, but we finally have a lead.

It's definitely been a slow-moving series for the Cubs so far.

T7 — Wind seems to help Pollock on solo homer that slowly carries over LF wall. Brings end to great start for Lester. Unfortunately for him, he won't earn winning decision if Cubs win today.

When he's not playing, Javy blows off steam by unraveling baseballs.

B8 — Javy makes an impact as a pinch hitter. Not quite Kirk Gibson-like, but he admirably guts out a run to 1B to beat out infield dribbler. Then, he takes 2B on bad throw. He looks gimpy after suffering knee injury last night.

Did we finally find a role for chatwood that he might be good at? I appreciate the hit, but based on the way Baez was running, I'm not so sure it was a good idea to have him pinch hit.

B8 —Another bad throw by D-backs on potential DP. J-Hey would've beaten it out anyway. Chatwood scores in pinch-running spot.

T9 — D-backs catch a big break. Bright sun affects J-Hey, & a pop-up drops in for a one-out double.

F — Strop stays composed & gets save. Cubs get 1st win of series. Both teams held to just 5 hits.
