The Cubs put up another lifeless effort as their playoff chances circled the drain.
Anthony Rizzo tripled to open the 2nd inning against Chris Paddack. Kris Bryant flew out, but not deep enough to score Rizzo. Willson Contreras struck out and Jason Heyward grounded out to strand the runner.
Manuel Margot homered off Cole Hamels in the 5th to make it 1-0. Ty France walked against James Norwood in the 6th and advanced to third on a Luis Urias single. Brad Wieck took over with two out. France attempted to steal home, Wieck saw and threw wildly home to allow the run.
