Cincinnati Reds (56-72) @ Chicago Cubs (73-53)

Matt Harvey (6-7, 4.91) vs. Alec Mills (0-0, 0.00)

Second of four-game affair. Mills making spot start for MLB debut in wake of Chatwood injury. Cubs gunning for third win in a row.

Got to be kind of a weird start for Harvey. Up until a few hours ago, he wasn't positive if he would become a Brewer or not.

T2 — Rare moment. Deep fly ball by Williams of Reds hits post on basket at top of wall in CF. Initially called HR. Ruling overturned after review. Changed to double. Ball hit post & bounced back into field of play.

T2 || Reds 0, Cubs 0

E2 — Harvey dealing right now. He's struck out 4 of 6 batters. He's also been receiving some favorable strike calls that certain Cubs hitters haven't been pleased with.

E2 || Reds 1, Cubs 0

B3 — Alec Mills is (unofficially) the most efficient hitter of all time. 1st career AB results in opposite-field single.

T6 — Solid start (considering the circumstances) by Mills. He comes out after pitching 5.2 innings of 3-hit ball. About as productive as any of Chatwood's starts this season.

B6 — "El Mago" drives opposite-field single to RF for RBI. Bases juiced with 1 out. Harvey gets pulled after 5.1 IP.

E6 — Unfortunate ending to inning by Cubs, as Rizzo grounds into DP. Originally called safe at 1B, but review overturns call.

E6 || Reds 1, Cubs 1

M8 — Wilson enters & comes up with big K to end inning. Reds unable to capitalize on leadoff walk. Runner left stranded at 2B.

B8 — Murphy magic! 3rd game as a Cub, & he goes yard to give Cubs late lead. "Murph" with his 1st huge hit as a North Sider. Naturally, he gets a curtain call.

B8 || Reds 1, Cubs 2

F/10 — Bote bomb for the win! All he does is hit walk-off home runs!!! Rookie sensation goes yard to give Cubs hard-fought 3-2 win. Every HR he's hit since his 1st one has been a go-ahead HR. Bote=clutch!!!

F/10 || Reds 2, Cubs 3
