B1 — Almora gets a leadoff double but a bad slide on an ensuing fielder's choice grounder results in him getting outed. Tough break for Cubs.

B1 || Tigers 1, Cubs 0

B2 — Bote cranks his first career home run with a shot to CF. Solo shot after DP changes momentum.

B4 — Tigers blow chance to get Baez on steal attempt. Catcher guns to 1B. Ensuing errant throw into OF allows Baez not only to steal second but to reach 3B.

B4 — He does it again! 2nd steal of home this year for El Mago. Baez single-handedly ties game. Brilliant slide to avoid catcher's mitt gets him in safely.

M6 — Russell makes beautiful basket catch while looking back at ball and running into shallow outfield. Prevents single. Tigers end up leaving runner stranded after 1-out double.

M7 — Clutch SO by Bass to end inning. Cubs pitching has performed well today with RISP.

B7 — Contreras must love hitting against AL teams. He continues his hot-hitting ways in games against AL teams this season today. 2-run double (on top of earlier solo homer) to give Cubs control.

M8 — Tigers waste another extra-base hit. They've been dreadful with men on base today. Farrell stays composed for scoreless inning.

Cubs have now won six in a row, all of which have been come-from-behind wins. That's their longest win streak of the season. They're also a season-high 14 games over .500. A lot has already changed since last week's struggles.
