M3 — Awesome unassisted DP by Rizzo to end inning. Rizzo catches hard-hit liner near 1B & steps on bag to double up Reds.

B3 — Great decision by 3B coach Brian Butterfield to hold Bryant on Zobrist double into LF corner. Bryant halted in his tracks after rounding 3B. Would've probably been out.

E3 — Murphy excites Wrigley crowd with towering shot to deep left-center. Deflating feeling for home fans after ball's caught on warning track to end inning, though.

T4 — Peraza puts Reds on top with solo jack to left-center. His 12th of the year. 9-game hitting streak for Peraza. Only the 2nd hit allowed by Hamels tonight.

T4 — Back-to-back solo jacks off Hamels. Votto sends one just over wall in LF. Hamels had given up just 1 HR as a Cub prior to this inning.

T4 — Bryant boots single in LF, allowing runners to reach 2B & 3B. Still nobody out. Hamels in serious trouble.

T4 — Suarez inexplicably chooses to go home hard-hit grounder right to Baez. Baez fires home to Caratini, who applies tag.

M4 — Hamels dodges bullet after giving up early HRs. Reds get men on 2B & 3B with 0 outs but fail to score.

E4 — Reds luck out in 4th, too. A couple of defensive blunders put Cubs on 1B & 2B with 0 outs. But ensuing DP & K result in Cubs coming up empty-handed.

T5 — Speedy Hamilton tries to steal on left-handed Lester. Hamels throws over to Rizzo, who bobbles ball but throws to Baez just in time for tag out.

M6 — Another inning of wasted opportunity for Reds. 1st 2 batters reach base on singles, but Reds fail to bring a run across.

M7 — Great catch of smoked liner gloved by Murphy to usher in stretch. Maples enters in relief of Hamels for final out of inning. Hamels with 7 Ks & 8 hits allowed in 6.2 IP.

F — Aged pitcher De La Rosa gets 1st career save filling in for injured Strop. Maples gets 1st big-league win. Happ's 3-run bomb wins it for Cubs.
