Baez has now hit 23 homers on the year, which is tied for his career high.

E5 — Eventful inning. La Stella comes home to score on Zobrist grounder. Close call but ruled safe. Padres had no challenges. Rizzo advanced to 3B but was sent back to 2B by umpires because of confusion over time being called.

B8 — Baez continues his great hitting performance with a triple that bounces off the wall in RF. Safe on headfirst slide. Big leadoff hit for Cubs.

T9 — Bote with potential game-saving throw home on chopper. Tag out at plate. Prevents Padres from scoring. Strop 1 out away from escaping.

The one benefit of Bryant's injury-plagued season has been the ascension of Bote. He's progressed leaps & bounds offensively & defensively.

F — Strop stays composed & gets big game-ending K. He then lets it all out with several celebratory fist pumps. He also salutes Bote, who saved the game for the Cubs with his great throw home. Cubs survive scary 9th inning. Baez's 8th-inning triple ends up being the winning hit.

F || Padres 4, Cubs 5
