T2 — Heyward pulls an Almora with a smooth slide on a stellar catch in RF. Wind blowing hard today. Made for some intriguing fly balls so far.

M3 — Mongtomery gets speedy Hamilton caught stealing by gunning to Rizzo, who then threw to Zobrist for tag out. Both clubs performing well on defensive end with runners on base so far.

M4 — Reds tack on a couple of runs. Could've been worse for Cubs, since bases were loaded with no outs. Critical DP prevents Reds from blowing game wide open.

B5 — La Stella draws a catcher's interference to put runners on corners with 1 out. Almora then picks up RBI by beating out throw at 1B on fielder's choice. Contreras comes in to score for Cubs' 1st run.

M7 — Edwards returns from lengthy DL stint to get critical K. Impressive for him to come up big in a crucial spot after being out for so long.

E7 — Pitching change works in Reds' favor. Lorenzen gets Almora to pop out with men on base to end inning.

B8 — Cubs threatening to score. Single by Rizzo puts runners on corners with 1 out, as Baez motors to 3B. Reds make another pitching change just minutes after replacing Lorenzen.

B8 — Towering fly ball to deep CF by Zobrist brings in Baez and lets Rizzo reach 2B. RBI for Zobrist. If not for wind blowing in, possibly a HR.

M9 — Wilson gets 2 straight clutch Ks to end inning & keep Reds at bay. Cubs have 1 last chance to tie the game (or win) in bottom of 9th.

B9 — Russell flies out to deep CF for 1st out. Erratic win & bright sun made it interesting for Hamilton. Happ follows with single to RF to put runner on with 1 out. Caratini now with his 1st big AB since being recalled from Iowa.

B9 — Interesting decision by Reds 2B Gennett. He corrals hard-hit grounder by Caratini but opts to not try DP. Just guns to 1B for easy out. Happ now in scoring position. Heyward with a chance to come up with tying hit.

F — Anticlimactic ending for Cubs. Hard-fought AB by Heyward ends with soft liner to LF. Cubs leave 14 stranded on the day for 5th straight loss to Reds.
