M1 — A couple of close calls defensively for Cubs in opening frame. Lester covers 1B on 3-1 putout & barely touches bag in time. Runner originally called safe, but Maddon challenges & has it overturned. Then, Schwarber makes difficult overhead catch in deep LF for 3rd out.

M1 || Pirates 0, Cubs 0

B1 — Kingham hits Bryant with pitch to put 1st man on. Those 2 used to play Little League Baseball with one another in Vegas. Then, Marte slips & falls in CF on Heyward fly ball. Enables Heyward to get to 2B & Bryant 3B. Bryant next scores on RBI grounder by Zobrist.

B1 || Pirates 0, Cubs 1

B1 — Heyward scores on sacrifice fly to deep right from Rizzo. In a matter of minutes, Marte's fall leads to Cubs taking 2-0 lead.

M2 — Lester issues a few 1-out walks but strikes out the next 2 batters to escape jam & keep Pirates scoreless.

E2 — Kingham walks the 1st 2 batters but strikes out the next 3. He must've been channeling Tyler Chatwood that inning.

E2 || Pirates 0, Cubs 2
