Cincinnati Reds (39-49) @ Chicago Cubs (49-36)

Matt Harvey (4-5, 4.91) vs. Tyler Chatwood (3-5, 4.54)

Second installment of three-game series. Reds have defeated Cubs five times in a row. Harvey pitching his best baseball in quite some time. He's facing off against Chatwood, who's still trying to settle into a rhythm.

M1 — Classic Chatwood. Back-to-back wild pitches on breaking balls that broke way too soon leads to Reds scoring 1st 2 runs.

This was Chatwood warming up pregame. Safe to say he failed to correct that mistake by the time that the game started.

E2 — Hard-fought inning for Cubs ends with K of Zobrist. Cubs get men on 1B & 2B with 1 out but don't score. Harvey holding his own so far. He's already thrown 43 pitches, though. Both starters have high pitch counts. Could make for a lot of bullpen action today.

T3 — Baez gets cute with glove flip on attempted force out at 2B, but the toss is high. Inning continues. Reds with men on 1B & 2B & 2 outs.

T3 — Ouch! Chatwood lofts pitch over inner part of plate for Suarez to stroke a 3-run bomb to left. Suarez leads NL with 66 RBI, & he's killed the Cubs this season.

T4 — Smooth defensive decision by Rizzo. Plays really close to plate to field bunt by Harvey. Keeps Peraza (who stole 2B after leadoff walk) at 2B.

M4 — Chatwood keeps Reds at bay in 4th. Gets K & groundout to end inning after Reds get men on 1B & 3B with 1 out.

B4 — Caratini makes an impact with RBI double to left-center. Error on Peraza (mishandling throw to infield) lets Caratini reach 3B. Schwarber scores on play after leading off with single. Caratini then scores on groundout up middle by Russell. Cubs finally get to Harvey.

E5 — Wind blowing in hurts Cubs in 5th. A couple of deep fly balls kept in the yard. Cubs leave 2 runners stranded.

T6 — Reds tack on another run, as Votto hits and RBI single to score Hamilton. Strange that Chatwood has remained in the game as long as he has.

B6 — Rosario gets 1st big-league hit & RBI on single up middle to score Russell. Russell takes advantage of miscommunication by Reds defenders on preceding double.

B6 — Combination of bright sunlight & heavy wind has made for interesting plays in OF so far this series. Schwarber hits towering fly to RF that nearly falls after Reds RF loses sight of it. Hamilton makes low basket catch to save it for Cincinnati. Harvey departs after 5.2 IP.

B7 — Baez smacks homer to left-center to lead off 7th. Cubs need to have a big inning now that Harvey is out of game.

Here's a look back at the single by Rosario. With a walk and a single in his two career at-bats, (statistically-speaking) he's the most efficient batter in the majors.

B8 — Cubs get to Garrett in 8th. 2 walks & a single load bases with 0 outs. Garrett gets pulled in favor of Hughes, who gallops to mound from bullpen.

B8 — Zobrist comes through with clutch 2-run double to left-center. Reaches for low pitch, but it pays off. Runners now on 28 & 3B with 0 outs.

B8 — Hughes clumsily misplays hopper hit right back to him by Baez. Bote comes in to score to tie game as Baez reaches on infield single.

B8 — Hit-and-run of sorts helps Cubs. Baez takes off prior to grounder to 2B by Rizzo. Helps prevent potential DP. Rizzo credited with RBI, as Zobrist scores to give Cubs 1st lead of game. Baez follows that up with steal of 3B.

F — Comeback Cubs end losing stretch against Reds using 4-run 8th. Morrow goes 3 up, 3 down in the 9th to finish it off. Chicago steals one from Cincy. Baez goes 4-5 to lead Cubs to victory.
