Happ strikes out to end the inning, 2 left on: Well looked like they had something going there. And then, well, they didn't. Shoot.
Bottom 2nd: Cubs 0, Giants 0
Panik RBI single, Panda scores: Felt that big man rumble home from here! Not really. I’m not in San Francisco. But my point is that Pablo Sandoval is a large human being.
Top 3rd: Giants 1, Cubs 0
Albert Almora solo HR: I can’t help but laugh. I loved seeing him in the two spot. He has a .920 OPS against lefties so far this year! But I did not expect to see him hit a dinger off Madbum today. So I laugh. Because that’s awesome.
Top 4th: Cubs 1, Giants 1
Willy leadoff walk: That’s a good start. I love leadoff walks.
Schwarber infield fly for last out, Contreras stranded: I do not love leaving a man who leadoff the inning with a walk on base. What a stupid waste.
Bottom 4th: Cubs 1, Giants 1
Crawford walks, 2 on, 0 out: Hendricks doesn’t look right. His command is way off.
Monty warming up, Bosio out: Right on cue…
Bumgarner strikes out on 3 straight change-ups: That…is just awesome.
Span strikes out to end the inning: Phew, That was a big out. It was probably Hendricks last batter anyway, but still big [update: it super wasn’t his last batter]
Top 5th: Cubs 1, Giants 1
Panda dives for a ball, throws out Zobrist at 1st: How did gravity allow for this play?
Top 6th: Cubs 1, Giants 1
Almora leadoff base hit: See? Crushes lefties.
Happ grounds out to end the inning: QUIT WASTING LEADOFF RUNNERS.
Top 7th: Cubs 1, Giants 1
Telecast shows 2 different fans sleeping: C’mon. Wake the hell up. Also, there is not a lot going on in this game, so I kind of get it.
Bottom 7th: Cubs 1, Giants 1
Jones singles, 2 on, 1 out: That was a weird pop-up. And this is no bueno. Cubs need a double play to avoid facing Posey.
Parker RBI single: I can't tell you how much he threaded the needle here between the shortstop and third base. I'm so disheartened right now. I know it's probably irrational to think, but the emotions are running high. It feels like a must-win game.
Strop comes in to face Posey, 2 on, 1 out: Double play. PLEASE. #HatsToTheLeft
Posey ground in to double, inning over: Thanks, Pedro.
Top 8th: Giants 2, Cubs 1
Zobrist leadoff single: Great start.
Rizzo pinch-hitting: Here comes a double.
Rizzo strikes out: Oops.
Willy grounds out, grabs his hamstring, inning over: Oh god...please no...
Bottom 8th: Giants 2, Cubs 1
Hunter Pence solo HR: I give up.
Top 9th: Giants 3, Cubs 1
Schwarber up, 2 outs: I have lost all faith right now. I know I'll be fine later. But right now, I'm only thinking about Willson Contreras.
Schwarber grounds out: Who cares? Just be okay, Willy. Please.
