SAN DIEGO — Fittingly, the finale of the Chicago Cubs' current six-game road trip featured a disastrous defensive display that led to a player advancing additional bases, which has happened multiple times in Chicago's West Coast swing. On a swinging bunt in the fourth inning, Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant advanced all the way to third base because of two blatant throwing errors.
First, Padres catcher Austin Hedges sent a high throw sailing over the first baseman's head and into the outfield. Then, Padres right fielder Hunter Renfroe made a wild throw back into the infield that flew into foul territory down the left-field line. The pair of errors resulted in Bryant reaching third base on something as insignificant as an infield dribbler.
