00:00:17
We are under the lights this evening as we get you set for another edition of baseball on MLB Network tonight.
00:00:24
Game two of this three game series between the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
00:00:30
Major League Baseball on MLB Network is next.
00:00:41
Alex Would lefty from North Carolina against the starting assignment? What's your take on Dan? Hey, I'm really excited to watch this guy, this one.
00:00:50
He's going together, a solid season up to this point.
00:00:53
E R Ray in the low twos.
00:00:55
And that's not an easy thing to do in this day and age of high scoring games and home runs and teams filled with guys that get hit throughout the lineup.
00:01:04
This is a really good pitcher digging in now.
00:01:07
Jason Heyward Way are set for baseball here this evening.
00:01:12
There's a strike at the knees, Owen.
00:01:14
One dandy row.
00:01:15
You check out this Dodger team.
00:01:17
Is they interplay here tonight.
00:01:18
It dropped another one last time out, and in fact, they've won just twice in their last eight tribe.
00:01:24
What an opportunity.
00:01:25
Get a chance to put our eyeballs on one of the best teams in baseball right now.
00:01:28
This team has played so well, their manager has been on point.
00:01:32
Every movie makes is working, timely, hitting, great defense, good bullpen.
00:01:38
The starters have been on point thistles Gonna be special on the changeup is taken for a called third strike, and the leadoff man is gone to begin the booth.
00:02:06
Stepping in now David Brody swings and grounds it too short, scooped up on very quickly.
00:02:14
They're there to gone to start the inning, digging in.
00:02:27
Next to be Chris Bryant is back in the starting lineup for this one after sitting out last night's game right first pitch of the at bat fastball off the plate.
00:02:55
Away, it's Ball one, and there are umpires calling balls and strikes.
00:02:59
Is Mr Earl Hendricks a zero Earl Hendrix? He He's not a guy that gets a lot of complaints by either players or pictures.
00:03:07
He's a pretty good umpire.
00:03:08
Dan Earl's got a great track record in this sport is pretty consistent, and overall, he's been a fair umpire.
00:03:16
11 21 That's a good take on a fastball out of the zone.
00:03:24
Hey, I get it.
00:03:25
He's looking for a ball to drive, but that ball was a little bit too far up in its own.
00:03:29
That's one you normally pop right up count.
00:03:31
Even a two and two.
00:03:44
Here comes loud contact off the bat of blind and sent deep so loud and this wall is gone.
00:03:53
No chance to make a play on that one.
00:04:01
Chris Bryant leaves the yard with a solo shot, eighth home run on the season for him and the Cubs air on the board.
00:04:08
1st 1 to nothing, and we'll employ the use of our show track technology to get a better idea of that home run.
00:04:17
And you see it there 111 miles an hour off the bat.
00:04:20
He certainly squared that one up.
00:04:22
Well, no, here's how.
00:04:34
The year by its looks, a fastball that's in there for strike one that average of 2 91 to start today.
00:04:42
Five homers.
00:04:43
18 driven in into the wind up.
00:04:51
Here comes the own one.
00:04:54
That's a ball 11 What? I don't blame him for not coming over the heart of the plate.
00:05:08
He circled this guy on the lineup card when he got to the yard.
00:05:11
Today he's been swinging one.
00:05:13
The hotter bats in the game with 21 This is where you cash your checks right here.
00:05:25
311 of the best hitters in the game.
00:05:28
You live for situations like this.
00:05:37
Hitter's count all the way.
00:05:39
Here it comes.
00:05:40
He loses him on ball four.
00:05:44
And don't forget he gave up a long ball earlier in this inning so you can understand why he wasn't too aggressive with him there when he got him 23 and one, he wasn't too anxious to challenge him.
00:05:57
There's the young catcher Willson Contreras.
00:06:00
Lifetime history with Alex would two hits in seven tries.
00:06:04
He also has one home run ready with first pitch.
00:06:10
Here it comes sends that one out of play for strike, one by its leads on first with a pair of ants in the inning fastball laid off well below the knees.
00:06:27
Contreras is usually more of a threat When facing left handers like this.
00:06:32
The right handers tend to give him a bit more trouble, so we'll see if that trend continues now is swinging a hard hit grounder, but this will get foul.
00:06:42
It's a ball and two strikes.
00:06:50
I had to sit back on the change up and he did a good job to get the bat on that one.
00:06:58
We'll try again.
00:06:59
One to swing and a miss.
00:07:02
Is he chased with two strikes and that will retire the side.
00:07:20
Jose Quintana is on the mound for the Cubs in this one.
00:07:24
What do you have for us on Denny? Hey.
00:07:26
Thanks, Matt.
00:07:27
Lefty Jose Padano taking the bump right now.
00:07:29
Really? Like this guy? Not overpowering, but great command of the fastball.
00:07:34
And he does something a lot of lefties don't do.
00:07:37
He'll come in with that fastball.
00:07:38
The writings, three pitch guy fastball, curveball, change up, throws all three for strikes.
00:07:44
Not an overpowering guy.
00:07:46
He is really a control artist stepping in Justin Turner.
00:07:50
It lead things off here in the bottom half of the first.
00:07:54
Ah, ball and no strikes, guys.
00:07:56
As we look at the Cubs coming into play here tonight, they're definitely in a nice stretches.
00:08:01
They've won six of their last seven ballgames.
00:08:03
Yeah, Matty, this team has been playing really well right now.
00:08:06
And this is case in point.
00:08:08
Chance to jump out again to another one.
00:08:11
Nothing lead.
00:08:12
They really doing that? They've been on attack early.
00:08:14
Offensive almost ambush like approaches to their at bats, and it's working for him outside.
00:08:22
Three.
00:08:23
No, now, now, here's the pitch.
00:08:36
Good swing.
00:08:37
Just got it.
00:08:38
Trying straightened that one out into his motion.
00:08:44
Here comes the three in one.
00:08:55
This is high in the air, out toward left center, Hayward on the run.
00:09:01
We can't get there in time, and now it hops over the wall for a ground rule double that will bring a smile to managers.
00:09:10
Face every single time first hitter of the inning just squares it up and bounces it over the fence.
00:09:16
Even if it stays in the yard, that's a double.
00:09:18
Either way, next at the plate will be Corey Seager says he'll take a breaking ball too low, and it's one known to come in here in 2 59 6 home runs.
00:09:28
10 R B I fires in a strike, this time to make it one ball and one strike.
00:09:42
No one out with a runner at second hold high in the year out to right field, Sousa moves to his right and put this one away in the alley for out number one, so that will bring in Mookie Betts.
00:10:09
She'll look to bring on that tying run from second with a base it into the outfield.
00:10:28
Here comes the first pitch runner at second here with one man out that evens it up one on one from the booth pitch.
00:10:53
All right, get out to a second, and that will get through into center field for basis, and they won't risk it 1/3.
00:11:11
So they're at the corners now with only one away.
00:11:16
There's a hard hit ball pitcher not able to get a love on a hard single up the middle.
00:11:21
Watch lips right there.
00:11:22
Dan sent it back.
00:11:27
So here's cleanup.
00:11:29
40 Ballenger and they'll be looking to change his fortunes in this one.
00:11:33
His numbers take a bit of a dive in recent action.
00:11:46
First delivery to him on the way.
00:11:49
Hard hit ball short by his fields it cleanly to second for one relay to first in time.
00:11:55
And just like that, the side is retired.
00:11:58
Your basic six 43 Get him out of danger.
00:12:01
Don't touch that remote.
00:12:02
More on MLB network right after this striding in Victor Tarantini get a started in the top of the second, ready to deliver.
00:12:19
Here's the first pitch and there's a fastball well off the plate inside, well below the knees, laid off on the change up there to, well, count pitch too high.
00:12:42
And it's three, and no, He walked a guy back in the first, and now he's looking like he might hand out another free pass to the leadoff guy.
00:12:50
Here, you can be walking a guy an inning and think you're going to have any success.
00:12:57
Here it comes 30 and it's up to a 32 full count now, and here's a ball hit in the air, but this will land untouched next 32 and that misses for Ball four.
00:13:31
So it's a leadoff walk here to start the second.
00:13:35
That leadoff walk is a great way to start that anyone you're looking had the lead could be the beginning of good things here in this happening.
00:13:46
Stepping into the box.
00:13:48
Albert Almora, he's ready.
00:13:59
Here's the first offering a called strike on the knuckle curve, and he's ahead in the count.
00:14:04
Nothing in one and this one's downstairs.
00:14:22
It's a ball in and strength Almora, a 25 year old.
00:14:26
He's a five year vet of the major league level.
00:14:33
Now, the one in one pitch in the air at toward right field bets has a read on it, and he calls it in for the first out of the inning.
00:14:47
The number 20 standing in Steven Souza.
00:14:55
You get to take his first cuts here from about the pitch.
00:15:12
Second inning.
00:15:13
Here is the Cubs lead this one early.
00:15:14
One swung on and missed that strike. Two.
00:15:30
Two.
00:15:31
Quick strikes and out you go to this is on the ground over the 1st 1 there throat Muncie to finish the double play that retires the side.
00:15:40
Nothing doing here this half on now to the bottom of the second.
00:15:44
It's the Cubs won and the Dodgers nothing so striding in Max Muncy and you'll be one of watch out for in this one.
00:15:56
Very good numbers in recent games.
00:16:09
Infield in the over shift here. Now the pitch.
00:16:13
Start him out away with a cold strike.
00:16:23
One pitch, and this ball is heading for the seats down the right side of the counter.
00:16:31
Move to own.
00:16:32
To now, check Swing here with that clearly breaks the plane as he set down for the first out.
00:16:45
Fooled him just enough with that pitch to get him go around.
00:16:48
According to the umpire.
00:16:49
Sometimes it can be really tough for the big, strong guys, because once they're committed swinging, it's hard for them to slow their swings down.
00:16:57
And that appeared to be the case there now, a fastball that couldn't quite find his own.
00:17:03
It's ball one Quintana playing here in his age, 31 season.
00:17:08
This is the final year of his current deal, so he'll be a free agent at season's end.
00:17:12
You know, Maddie, I know he's in the final year of his contract, but he's playing to expectations, To be honest with you.
00:17:18
I know he wants to turn it up a little bit, though, as he approaches the end of the season and make that salary push.
00:17:24
Has he had stored free agency again? And he'll pull into second with one away as a hitter, only feeling better than getting a driving one in here like that? He s a lot of the doc's going.
00:17:37
He was guaranteed a double, but I think he had thoughts of maybe a triple if the outfielder hadn't gotten back in right away.
00:17:43
Yeah, there really wasn't any question about that one going for extra bases off the back, throw behind the runner at second, and he just manages to get his hand in.
00:17:59
Now kick a Hernandez.
00:18:01
Watch a first pitch curveballs drop in there for strike one.
00:18:04
He did not play last night, but clearly back in the starting nine for this one way, the old one pitch just behind the fastball there.
00:18:21
Two strikes now, and that's just a great mix of pitches right there.
00:18:24
And that's what this guy's gonna do if he's gonna keep this team off. Balance.
00:18:28
Hernandez behind the ball and two strikes 12 No.
00:18:42
Expect a challenge right here.
00:18:43
Does not want to run the count for one out.
00:18:47
A runner on second base, hard towards center.
00:18:57
That's in their face.
00:18:58
Hit is on his way.
00:19:00
Home tag and he's in There were all square at one apiece.
00:19:06
Everything done right down on both sides to defensive side and the offensive side to send him, and the outfielder made a strong, accurate throw.
00:19:15
That runner was safe.
00:19:16
No doubt about it.
00:19:17
That's one of those where you gotta be aggressive.
00:19:19
That's 1/3 base coach.
00:19:20
You know, the outfielder has a strong during arm.
00:19:23
You're taking your a lot of things.
00:19:25
We're trying to get through a decision to send a good send in a close play, but it all worked out at the plate.
00:19:31
Will Smith, and he really thrives in the batter's box here at home, something to keep an eye on in this one.
00:19:42
First delivery to him on the way, and he starts the number eight hitter with a strike.
00:19:47
Nothing in one.
00:19:57
And it's quickly owing to runner on first here with one gun in a 11 time.
00:20:11
And he found this one off the next two missions, and that will move it to one and two now a fishing bite there on that old to breaking ball.
00:20:30
But you got to be careful because this picture might throw him another one ball and two strikes.
00:20:40
Here's the *****.
00:20:41
You know that he went with the OSP e there once he got going to, but now that they both missed, I think we'll see more of a challenge pitch here.
00:20:50
You don't have to give in, but you can't be too cute either.
00:20:58
Here.
00:20:59
Now, the 22 is swung on and missed, He got him.
00:21:03
What I like about that strikeout guys is that he came back with a fastball on to do.
00:21:08
He was heading the count going to earlier.
00:21:10
But instead of continuing to nibble of it, he decided to get aggressive again and the challenge with his hard stuff into the box.
00:21:27
Now Alex would filed away and mrs with it, one and one.
00:21:50
He's a veteran out on that mound.
00:21:52
He understands he has to establish that inside.
00:21:54
Fastball toe, open up the outer half of the plate.
00:22:05
Ventana sets 11 on its way.
00:22:07
Bouncer up the middle.
00:22:09
Bias has it pro on the second for the force in the side is retired.
00:22:15
So more of the colorful characters here at the ballpark tonight.
00:22:20
More baseball on MLB Network.
00:22:22
Right after this now to the plate, the pitcher Jose Quintana get his first opportunity in this one.
00:22:41
I want to know now.
00:22:48
10 nice adjustment out on the mound, overthrew the 1st 1 a little bit, but got on top and let that ball ripped right out in front of him.
00:23:06
Now the one in one pic mrs for the second swing and a miss it a ball trailing out of his own to and to John.
00:23:25
The way pops this one up Muncie as room and foul territory.
00:23:33
But this a land untouched 2 to 1 more time, swung on and missed.
00:23:39
You got him.
00:23:41
Now I know he struck out there, but for a picture that's a pretty solid at that time, you could make it a losing picture out there, working through quite a few more extra *****es.
00:23:51
That's a quality A B in my book.
00:23:59
So that will bring up Jason Heyward as the first pitch Mrs to him.
00:24:04
It's ball 1/1 here in the early going, fouled off.
00:24:23
Lucky.
00:24:24
He got a piece right there.
00:24:25
He was definitely laid on that pitch after seeing a previous off speed pitch, and he takes a cold strike two and it's fouled away.
00:24:42
Bases your empty, one man out on the ground and right at the shifted infield.
00:24:52
Diving try, but he can't haul it in its through for a basis.
00:24:56
Danny, I know that's not the execution he was looking for right there.
00:25:00
That batter's eyes lit up on that pitch.
00:25:02
Not a really good change of one of the things Mark.
00:25:04
This picture will do you use that changeup like most pictures will use the curveball.
00:25:09
His changeup is that good.
00:25:11
That one wasn't, though, into the box.
00:25:14
David Brody as he lays off a fastball too low for Ball one.
00:25:19
He's over one after grounding out in his only trip to the plate so far.
00:25:34
One home.
00:25:36
That's all clearly working the bottom of the zone, trying to get a ground ball for a double play runner at first year. One man out.
00:25:47
Throw over to the bag, a dive.
00:25:49
Buddies back outside and low three.
00:26:04
And after those two breaking balls missed.
00:26:07
You have to be sitting on a fastball right here.
00:26:22
There's a good breaking balls.
00:26:23
It gets the bottom of the zone.
00:26:26
Runners on first with one down on a gift of a swing There.
00:26:36
It's three and two now.
00:26:38
There was great arm action on that 31 change up right here.
00:26:41
He's got this guy thinking, that's the beauty Right now you go to a full county sit changeup.
00:26:48
Meanwhile, now this is trouble down the right field line.
00:26:51
This should be extra bases.
00:26:54
Now it's cut off a throw to the plate on the tag will be too late as they take the lead.
00:26:59
Now it 2 to 1.
00:27:01
So much of this game is situational hitting guys.
00:27:04
Nice job there.
00:27:05
You've got to find a way to pick your teammates up when you're given the chance and he doesn't try to do too much right here.
00:27:12
He just takes what's there safely on second and his buddies high fiving teammates in the dugout.
00:27:23
So run a report it second here with one away and into bat next, former national again VP Chris Bryants.
00:27:30
That last at that.
00:27:31
When he went deep, he turned around a pretty good fastball.
00:27:33
So I'm kind of thinking this guy's a good fastball hitter, so I might want to move that ball up and down and in and out, trying not to throw right down the middle of the plate, ready to deliver.
00:27:50
Here's the first pitch runner at second here with one man out, ready on owing to on, this one gets away and he's gonna make it up to third.
00:28:15
Here is he advances on the wild pitch that can be a tough read as a runner on second to see if the ball it's gotten away enough to move the third.
00:28:23
You have to be sure you can make it.
00:28:25
He was there, and now he's only 90 feet away.
00:28:40
Knuckle curve there and he thought he had him.
00:28:42
But it's too, and to his pitch count is really spiked here in this inning.
00:28:47
He's upto over 50 already and that Mrs there.
00:29:02
So he runs the count full now for the guy on the mound.
00:29:05
This is one of those innings where nothing comes easy.
00:29:08
He's throwing a bunch of pitches, and this A B hasn't been any different, definitely laboring at the moment, and a fastball swung on and hit the second.
00:29:21
Reined in.
00:29:23
The first is in time, but meanwhile, the runner is in to score.
00:29:28
That ground was hard hit, and sometimes the runner third will have to hold on a ball like that.
00:29:34
But he was off on contact, and they opted to take the out at first instead, so bases air empty here with two gone and into bat.
00:29:53
Next, the versatile weapon hobby year by it first pitch of the at bat on its way string on that 11 strike one in front of a change up and he can't keep it fair.
00:30:14
Two strikes on him now, after fouling off the 2nd 1 I got to step out of the box.
00:30:20
That just my batting gloves and tell myself there's no chance.
00:30:23
He's tripling up on that pitch.
00:30:26
Not a bad pitch there with two strikes, but it misses one and two.
00:30:33
Taken off the outside is the breaking ball.
00:30:35
Couldn't catch the corner set to deal on two and two counting.
00:30:54
Willson Contreras would be next full count.
00:31:04
Here.
00:31:05
Here comes the pitch, and he loses him on a breaking ball.
00:31:11
Yeah, the pitching coach would hate to go to the bullpen this earlier game, but sometimes you have no choice.
00:31:17
On the flip side, he might just get in his face a little bit out there, trying to challenge him.
00:31:21
Wake him up from this fund.
00:31:22
Either way, we'll see how it works.
00:31:34
So it's a runner at first with two gone, stepping up to hit next, the catcher Willson Contreras, from the belt kicks and deals.
00:31:50
Fastball here is you'll take a look a ball 11 and we're only in the third inning and his pitch count is above 60 that's not being too efficient with your pitches.
00:32:06
The 10 it's one thing to get hit around, but it's far worse when you're getting yourself into trouble by not throwing strikes.
00:32:15
Every picture's been there, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating or unacceptable.
00:32:26
Popped him up.
00:32:32
Turner is there to make the catch in.
00:32:34
The side is retired, so it's two runs on two hits, no errors in a runner left.
00:32:41
We'll head out of the home.
00:32:42
Half of ending.
00:32:43
Number three cups lead this 13 to 1.
00:32:52
Digging in for his second at bat, Justin Turner will try to follow up with double in his last at bat with another big hit right here.
00:33:00
He's gotta build off that last.
00:33:02
Maybe he battled.
00:33:03
Usually, when you battle, you get in that swing mode, a lot of pitches, you'll swing at the rosin bag.
00:33:08
I love the fact that he was able to work a bubble in last at bat.
00:33:11
Let's see if we get more of the same right here.
00:33:22
And here's a fastball that's nowhere near the zone.
00:33:24
It's to an owner three and oh, now well, he was definitely looking fastball here and he got one, but that was good discipline to lay off and get himself into a 30 count Turner in front of three balls in a strike and good patients exercise does.
00:33:57
He works out to walk to lead off the home half of the third.
00:34:06
Here's Greece so far over one with a fly out from the about, the pitch lays off one from the strength liner toward right center, and that's a base it one for two in his first couple of plate appearances, I went to the well one too many times back there, back fastballs.
00:34:47
Hitter was able to keep his hands through, deliver a nice line drive, and he's looking to make something happen here.
00:34:59
With two on and nobody out well earned account.
00:35:02
Expect him to look for a ball to drive.
00:35:04
If he gets two strikes against him, you'll need to change this plan and focus on moving the runners up.
00:35:09
This game is too close to get greedy.
00:35:21
First pitch coming here.
00:35:22
It iss oh on one count in the pitch, our pitch around the knees, but it doesn't quite catch the bottom of his own.
00:35:48
No offer on that 12 balls and a strike.
00:35:52
Great chance right here is a hitter to be really aggressive with two guys already on a pretty good shot.
00:35:57
He's going to get a challenge.
00:35:59
Pitch right here, yanked on the ground down the line.
00:36:11
But this will wind up a foul ball two and two from the belt.
00:36:18
Kicks and deals now.
00:36:22
Looks like he tried to elevate a fastball in the 22 pitch there, but kind of overdid it with a pitch that high.
00:36:29
It's pretty easy to lay off if you're the hitter now with three, and to pick still hanging with him.
00:36:38
Another good swing to keep it going.
00:36:43
Wait, Try it again.
00:36:47
32 That's popped up back toward short right field.
00:36:52
Modi stay with it is he backs up and puts it away. One gone.
00:36:57
Two on here with one man, and that will bring forward Cody Ballenger.
00:37:08
First pitch coming here it is.
00:37:10
Strike cold.
00:37:12
Tough to do much with that one with some traffic on the base paths.
00:37:16
Nice job by the pitcher to execute.
00:37:18
Strike right over the top with that current ball on its own to he's following the code not to miss down and into a lefty.
00:37:30
Everything on the outer half of the plate, Nothing in to count and the pitch.
00:37:55
Now this is hit not all that hard out to second and indeed will not even try as he goes to first.
00:38:01
And that means two men are in scoring position with two away.
00:38:07
So two on with two away.
00:38:09
Never bring up the left handed hitter Max Muncy.
00:38:18
First delivery to him on the way like that.
00:38:24
Pitch their lefty on lefty matchup.
00:38:25
Curveball away to a lefty.
00:38:28
Smart *****, he said, the old one hard hit to first.
00:38:34
He has some trouble with it, and they won't be in time.
00:38:38
It will be able to beat out the recovery.
00:38:40
Throw it at the plate A.
00:38:54
J.
00:38:55
Pollock, as he will look a first pitch fastball for two on, two out for him here in the third.
00:39:11
Wanna know? Here it is.
00:39:13
I like taken up in the zone collar.
00:39:17
A 32 year old veteran, he was a first round pick back in 2009 and will be drafted.
00:39:23
Yeah, he has turned himself into a really nice ball player.
00:39:26
I wouldn't put him on a superstar level.
00:39:28
But you know what they didn't miss with this going high rounds and you carve out a career the way this guy has Nice after the double in his first at bat, looks like China hits around this guy a little bit.
00:39:42
Runners at the corners, Two men out, Bolic in front, three balls and a strike.
00:39:52
Couldn't be a whole lot better.
00:39:53
Situation headed now 312 on.
00:39:57
He's got to be thinking he's going to get a pitch.
00:39:59
He can drive right here.
00:40:01
Three and one picks, 3 to 2 out.
00:40:07
Run, run first.
00:40:09
Lots of possible outcomes on this pitch.
00:40:14
Takes this the other way, too right.
00:40:16
Souza is there, and he'll make the catch to retire the side.
00:40:21
It's a run on two hits here for L. A.
00:40:24
On now to the top of ending number four.
00:40:26
It's the Cubs three and the Dodgers to start of the fourth upcoming, but first Heidi Watney standing by with a report.
00:40:40
Thanks smack in between innings.
00:40:41
I was able to catch up with the manager of the Cubs to discuss his thoughts on his line up so far, and overall, he's really happy with the at bats they're putting together.
00:40:49
They've already worked out three walks.
00:40:51
So he feels as though that kind of willingness to let the opposition work themselves into trouble will continue to result in good things for them on the scoreboard.
00:41:00
All right, Heidi, thank you.
00:41:04
So digging in now.
00:41:05
Victor Charity Knee.
00:41:07
He drew a walk his first time up here come grounder down the line in third, but a foul ball here.
00:41:19
Oh, on one.
00:41:22
Now here it comes, and a fast way off target here, and it's even a one.
00:41:29
Now the Dodgers get a right hander up and throwing in their bullpen.
00:41:39
The 11 home and the knuckle freezes him as he becomes out Number one.
00:42:10
Here's Albert Almora next comes into this at bat over one in the ballgame.
00:42:20
First pitch of the at bat on its way, and this is low ball.
00:42:25
One high fly ball after straight away center on the move is Pollard.
00:42:39
He gets there and makes the play for the second out of the inning.
00:42:47
Bases are empty here, with two gone, and that will bring up the outfielder Steven Souza Jr.
00:42:57
John.
00:42:58
The way you know, you think it's an eight hole hitter right there.
00:43:05
You shouldn't be taking that fastball on your right, But when you got the picture hitting behind you, you sometime sit off speed because thats the picture usually going to get the picture does not want to get beat by you.
00:43:17
He's not afraid to walk you and hand it over to and maybe against the pitcher.
00:43:29
11 is looked after ball number two.
00:43:36
We're in the 4th 3 to 2 is our score.
00:43:43
Hit the other way out toward right field bets, has a read on it on.
00:43:47
That's the third out, three up, three down for the Cubs, but they still lead it 3 to 2, just about set to go for the last of the fourth.
00:44:04
But before we do that, here's Heidi Watney, Matt.
00:44:08
During the break, I caught up with Dave Roberts, the Dodgers skipper, about his lineups performance so far and flat out, he was very pleased with the quality of their at bats.
00:44:16
It's still pretty early in the game, but they've seen a lot of pitches already, and he thinks the two runs they pushed across so far is just the beginning.
00:44:23
Given the quality of the Outback.
00:44:25
They're putting together good stuff, Heidi. Thanks.
00:44:30
Bottom of the inning.
00:44:31
Now, now batting.
00:44:33
Kiki Hernandez will follow up the R B I single from his first at bat.
00:44:38
Here's he's ready.
00:44:48
Here's the 01 but foul 12 is laid off for ball, too.
00:45:05
And the sinking fastball called Strike three.
00:45:08
And that's out number one back digging in Will Smith.
00:45:16
They looked to bounce back after striking out last time up.
00:45:19
Kind of shocked.
00:45:20
Got blown away with a fastball.
00:45:22
You could tell he was laid on that one, and we'll see if he tries to cheat to something.
00:45:27
That's a B wind up.
00:45:31
Here comes the 10 and he watches one miss outside, too.
00:45:43
Popped up.
00:45:44
Contreras is there, and he brings it in for the second out of the inning now.
00:45:53
So here's the Dodgers pitcher Alex would first offering on its way.
00:46:07
Hopped up.
00:46:10
But this a land untouched.
00:46:19
John is ready.
00:46:20
Here it is, on a 11 hit the other way out toward right field.
00:46:25
Souza is under.
00:46:26
It makes the catch, and that will retire the side.
00:46:30
123 Go to Dodgers.
00:46:32
Still a 32 ballgame next, it will be the pitcher Jose Quintana.
00:46:45
He's over one thus far.
00:46:50
First pitch of the at bat on its way.
00:46:53
All right.
00:46:56
Oh, and one that missed that ball taken but called for Strike two on the outer part of his own, swinging a ground ball to third on.
00:47:25
It goes right through him in the left field.
00:47:30
You don't see that too much in today's game.
00:47:32
Most guys, it doesn't matter what the count is there looking line.
00:47:35
Drive the ball out of the ballpark.
00:47:37
Not the case here.
00:47:38
Good to strike adjustment.
00:47:40
Able a bunch of ground Jason Heyward, Now high fly ball out to deep right field that's looking up on goodbye.
00:47:59
This one ain't coming back.
00:48:07
Two.
00:48:08
Run home run that time for Jason Heyward, number 148 for his career.
00:48:13
And just like that, it's now a five to a ball game.
00:48:17
You're not afforded as many mistakes when you're not doing that ball in the nineties or above, and this guy needs to be really fine with this location.
00:48:25
You know, Dan, that's just a great swing by that right there, because when you see low velocity guy out on the mound.
00:48:31
That's not gonna blow the heater by you. Maybe.
00:48:34
Sometimes you expand the zone, not the case right there.
00:48:37
He set him up.
00:48:38
He wanted something over the heart of the plate.
00:48:40
He didn't miss it.
00:48:47
Jimmy Nelson will come on in.
00:48:49
Relief will make his second appearance of the season so far.
00:49:07
Now David Brody, second as the first pitch to him, is in there for a called strike one.
00:49:13
Nelson has compiled over 600 innings of work in his major league career and sports and er a right around the major league average at just over four.
00:49:24
And here's one that misses to the Chicago second baseman.
00:49:27
It's a ball in.
00:49:28
The strike is put in play to the right side of the infield.
00:49:36
He's got it on first.
00:49:38
So good mounts back. Pitch.
00:49:40
There is he gets the ground ball for the first out final line there for the Dodgers starting pitcher.
00:49:46
Not the night he or his club were hoping for.
00:49:50
A.
00:49:51
This was just one of those games that just weren't meant to be.
00:49:52
When you add it all up, had a rough time, only lasted four innings, just wasn't able to give them that kind of performance.
00:49:59
They were looking for going into this one.
00:50:08
Here's the first pitch to him.
00:50:12
Too much dip on the sinker laid off for a ball, and he found this one off.
00:50:28
11 five runs, five hits.
00:50:37
No errors so far for the Cubbies.
00:50:42
And he lays off into even the count two and two, and a sinker dips too low there, into the dirt.
00:50:53
In fact, that's where he wants that sinker to end up.
00:50:57
But that was a nice job of laying off and close their on three and two.
00:51:09
But take your base, says Earl Hendrix.
00:51:10
Sits ball four.
00:51:12
Well, the reason power hitters generally draw more walks and other guys is exactly what we saw right there.
00:51:17
Pictures work around.
00:51:18
They've been nibble the corners a lot more so they don't get burned.
00:51:22
He made some good pitches, but he just couldn't get him to chase enough out of the zone with plate of your bias.
00:51:29
It was a walk in his last trip, ready to deliver.
00:51:33
Here's the first pitch, still only one out in the inning, and he lays off the pitch up on in Bull, too.
00:51:47
You want to talk about being in his own.
00:51:49
This guy's been raking lately, and it all starts with this pitch selection to great takes, and he's almost daring the picture.
00:51:55
Just go ahead and challenge him.
00:51:58
Takes this the other way to right, and that's in their base.
00:52:01
Hit and they'll have runners at the corners following one out.
00:52:07
Single count.
00:52:09
Leverage right there.
00:52:10
Sitting dead red fastball on.
00:52:12
He didn't miss it.
00:52:13
Nice swing right there, driving it into the outfield.
00:52:16
For now, next head will be Willson Contreras as well.
00:52:26
Take a look at a high strike that time.
00:52:28
It's nothing in one over to for him to this point.
00:52:41
Oh, in one delivery and look out, up and in and nearly took his head off.
00:52:47
That'll wake everyone up.
00:52:49
Any time you buzz the tower like that, there's a reason for people to start getting a little bit edgy.
00:52:56
Gets him to swing at a pitch down and out of his own one and two big pitch coming up right here.
00:53:02
He'd love for a ground ball or a strike out.
00:53:17
12 is taken for bull, too.
00:53:22
Both teams, with six hits so far, stand alive putting together a really good at bat here.
00:53:35
You can definitely tell with that foul off right there that he's picking up spin on this pictures off speed stuff.
00:53:41
Maybe expected fastball on this next one struck him out.
00:53:51
Next, a bad will be Victor Tarantini, and we'll see what he could do here with a pair of runners on base and two gone here in the fifth from the belt.
00:54:04
Kicks and deals close there, but he doesn't get the call with breaking ball one and five runs, six hits, no air.
00:54:13
We're so far for the Cubbies, just a bit high with fastball but didn't get the call.
00:54:23
He's gonna have to have a talk with the umpire after this half inning, but if he's not gonna get those calls, he's got to come a little bit more over the heart of the plate.
00:54:31
And that usually means damage done.
00:54:42
And its two balls and two strikes now great job by the picture right there, changing I levels.
00:54:47
We all know he's a sinker ball pitcher, but if he could throw some four seamers up in his own, a swing and a miss that retired the side and that will do it.
00:54:59
Two for the Cubs in the inning on the strength of this two run home run onto the bottom of the fifth.
00:55:05
It's now five to Chicago leading off the inning.
00:55:14
Justin Turner to get something going here, ready to deliver.
00:55:29
Here's the first pitch like the fastball got away from him there.
00:55:34
Pitcher wants to have a quick inning right here.
00:55:36
Capitalize on the Mo Mentum is batters have one and one to the Dodgers lead off man, a couple of righties starting to loosen now in the bullpen, 11 home heading out toward shallow right.
00:56:07
Souza is under.
00:56:08
It makes the play one away.
00:56:16
Standing in Corey Seager but headed to tried so far.
00:56:23
First delivery to him on the way.
00:56:29
We're in the fifth inning here.
00:56:30
Five to is our score, and there's bold one one in one down the third base line.
00:56:47
But a foul ball one and two now did a good job to shorten up and protect the plate, and he'll have another shot at it here.
00:57:00
Not surprised he's late on a heater right there.
00:57:02
Just saw an off speed pitch, one to stay back a little bit too long when he can't catch up to the fastball as he swings and misses for the second.
00:57:10
That was a good job, tying him up one side on that strikeout pitch.
00:57:14
It wasn't even in the strike zone, but with the hitter protecting with two strikes, that's the kind of pitch you can get him to offer it.
00:57:21
And he's probably not gonna do much with it when he does make contact.
00:57:29
Stepping in now.
00:57:30
Mookie Betts Take a look at one hidden two at bats for him at this point in the booth into his wind up.
00:57:45
Here comes the 10 hit in the air to center field.
00:57:50
Waiting on it is Al Maura.
00:57:54
He makes the play and that will end the inning.
00:57:57
Dodgers down in order and the deficit remains 5 to 2.
00:58:11
Coming to the plate now.
00:58:13
Albert Almora.
00:58:14
He'll get it started against Jimmy Nelson.
00:58:16
As we get the ending underway.
00:58:21
He's ready.
00:58:22
Here's the first offering what right hander starts to loosen out of the bullpen.
00:58:29
Now one count.
00:58:40
Here's the pitch.
00:58:42
What behind Owen to now? Nothing in to count and the pitch and a good sinker there gets him swinging for the first out, ready for another shot Now Steven Souza.
00:59:05
It's been over.
00:59:06
Two.
00:59:07
Effort for him to this point.
00:59:14
Ready with the first pitch. Here it comes.
00:59:17
It's the outside corner.
00:59:19
It's strike one waiting inside with that one.
00:59:29
A pretty easy.
00:59:30
Take their 52 is our score here in inning number six 211 Now to Steven Souza.
00:59:46
He's fallen behind, down three and one.
00:59:49
Good job to work.
00:59:50
The count put himself back in.
00:59:51
The driver's seat.
00:59:52
Started off with one strike in.
00:59:54
Now he's got to count his favorite three and one now sinker this time, but this ball stays outside as he loses.
01:00:01
In here, it's Ball four and that whole of that.
01:00:04
I feel like you really didn't want to challenge him, and I'm really surprised by that, because I think this is a guy in the bottom 30 order.
01:00:11
You have to go right after so a runner at first.
01:00:16
Now, with one away and up next, the pitcher Jose Quintana from the belt kicks and deals and they'll try and play for one.
01:00:30
Here is he gets this one down to second for one relay throw, but it will be too late as he's well, safe.
01:00:38
Jason will stand it again as we flash back with little innings here.
01:00:43
This was a big blow.
01:00:44
A two run home run really got his guys going first, offering on its way one or no delivery.
01:01:15
Now a good pitch on the inside part of the plate ties him up, and it's one and one.
01:01:20
Well, that's a jam shot right there.
01:01:22
That's just good gets in my bin.
01:01:24
Who up it in? No offer on that 12 balls and a strike runner on first with two away counts, even the Hayward two balls and two strikes open to send him packing pitch on its way.
01:01:52
Good spot for an R B.
01:01:54
I put the ball in play with the runner in motion.
01:01:56
He could score all the way from first.
01:01:58
Now the three and two freezes him a strikeout looking one left for the Cubs, and it remains 5 to 2.
01:02:15
Next will be the Dodgers cleanup hitter Cody Bellingen has hit listening to and fat so far.
01:02:22
First pitch of the advance hit pretty well out toward right.
01:02:27
Center field center fielder going back, Still going back.
01:02:40
It's a solo homer for Cody Bellenger.
01:02:43
Seven home runs for him on the year now, and it's a 53 game.
01:02:47
Now listen.
01:03:02
There's an old adage in baseball that solo home runs won't kill you.
01:03:05
This is one of the top hitters in that lineup.
01:03:07
So home run a solo home run right here.
01:03:14
Chicago skipper, now a pound of a dugout on his way to the mound.
01:03:18
He's gonna make a change that will do it for Jose Quintana.
01:03:22
So the good news is you wind up going records in five innings for the victory.
01:03:26
But he does leave his bullpen some considerable work to do before this is done.
01:03:35
Alec Mills takes over on the mound here with nobody out in the sixth inning.
01:03:55
Next up is Max Muncy.
01:03:58
We'll take a look at a picture that misses for Ball 11 for two in the ballgame.
01:04:03
Thus far, I think this is hit the other way out toward left field.
01:04:18
Hayward has a read on it, one down, no riding in once again a J.
01:04:30
He doubled earlier in the game, one to this point, first offering on its way.
01:04:44
Some action out in the bullpen.
01:04:45
Couple of right handers starting to loosen up one app.
01:04:54
Nobody on Fooled with the curveball there, and it's strike two offered at that breaking ball below the zone, and that's a tough one to spit on.
01:05:07
But the key is recognizing it, coming out of the pictures and earlier, making sure that it goes up before it comes down.
01:05:14
More likely to be a hanger when that's the case.
01:05:19
Fastball here that'll wisely layoff in its one and two.
01:05:23
Well, try to throw a high fastball right by him.
01:05:26
There didn't work, but now we'll see if that sets up some different options.
01:05:30
Wouldn't be surprised to see a good slider down in a way right here.
01:05:33
Fouled away bases, your empty one man.
01:05:43
Tough curveball that time, But he's able to make a little contact to keep his at bat going again.
01:05:49
A 12 all right.
01:06:02
This one has hit a ton at the centre, racing back the center fielder batter's eye for a home run and impressive shot dead center field.
01:06:17
So it's a solo shot dead center, his first home run of the season as they pulled within one Here.
01:06:23
It's now a 54 game standing in Hernandez.
01:06:54
Look a fastball in there on the outer half.
01:06:57
One hit in two tries for him so far.
01:07:07
Wind up and the old one.
01:07:11
And that Mrs.
01:07:12
One and one two balls and a strike.
01:07:28
Two one.
01:07:31
Strike two swinging.
01:07:33
I would like to see a little bit more discipline in that you get a count.
01:07:36
Your favorite swinging a pitch that bad. Not good.
01:07:44
Fouled off.
01:07:48
Still, only one out in the inning breaking ball called just a bit low.
01:08:05
Awfully close there on three and two.
01:08:07
But take your base, says Earl Hendrix.
01:08:09
It's full four, man.
01:08:10
That's just painful for a pitcher right there.
01:08:13
A three to offering that was right on the corner, but he couldn't get him to chase, and he doesn't get the call.
01:08:19
Can't beat yourself up about that too much now, with Blake Will Smith over to on his line thus far.
01:08:33
First pitch coming here it ISS and he throws the fastball by AM here.
01:08:38
One runner at first year.
01:08:40
One man out, one ball, one strike.
01:08:54
He threw that pitch with purpose to get a double play.
01:08:57
Good job, political by the was a hitter ready with 11 pitch.
01:09:06
Here's a changeup taken, but it finds the zone on the inside on its filed away.
01:09:32
Another one to strike three on a pitch in the dirt and it's not in time is he's in well ahead of the throw.
01:09:41
They were hoping for possible tying run in scoring position.
01:09:46
Chris Taylor look to provide a little too out thunder off the bench is hit with a second and two away That's popped up.
01:10:07
Charity Me Foul ground.
01:10:10
Got it to end the inning as they'll strand the time run in scoring position.
01:10:14
So two runs come across here, both coming via the solo home run.
01:10:19
Seventh inning coming up.
01:10:21
Cubbies.
01:10:22
Air in front, 5 to 4, trying.
01:10:27
It is on to pitch from the bullpen now to start any number seven Digging in David Brody was a ground down fixed in the last time up.
01:10:57
Here's the pitch.
01:10:59
Now it's swing and a fly ball, and it's a foul ball.
01:11:12
Another one filed off, and he's quickly behind a 12 Nothing in to count and the pitch training.
01:11:28
A former member of the Oakland A's was signed as a free agent in the middle of last season.
01:11:33
Yeah, I know he expected to get a longer term deal, but these are the facts.
01:11:37
Right now.
01:11:38
He is on a one year deal, and he is gonna have to produce if he is gonna get that multi year he's been looking for.
01:11:43
Come off season 12 to to to to live all three.
01:12:22
Just when you needed a shutdown inning, a leadoff walk was certainly not on the agenda.
01:12:27
He needs a bear down right here.
01:12:44
Payoff pitch swung on and missed.
01:12:47
He got him on strikes.
01:12:49
Nice job there, taking care of the leadoff hitter B of the strike.
01:12:52
And I'll tell you in a one run game, especially this late reading that first guy in the inning.
01:12:57
It's so important.
01:12:58
It changes the whole complexion of the inning.
01:13:01
So that was a big out.
01:13:14
Here's Chris Bryant.
01:13:15
Now look a fastball too high for Ball one.
01:13:20
He's working on a one for two games so far now a swing and a miss, and I don't think he was expecting a pitch inside.
01:13:40
It's one and one groundball left side defence set up perfectly.
01:13:53
Field it cleanly and safe at first as he beats this one out by about 1/2 a step, and that's great hustle right there, out of the box.
01:14:02
Not everybody's getting it right out the chute from step one, but I have to ask you how frustrating executing a pitch.
01:14:09
And there's an infield non.
01:14:11
It is the road you could read that right off the bat is a picture.
01:14:13
You can read the angle.
01:14:14
You know that that ball is going to be hit on the ground and you're thinking deep down inside.
01:14:18
Okay, there's a quick out.
01:14:19
It just wasn't meant to be.
01:14:21
And that brings up probably bias.
01:14:23
And he found this one off.
01:14:25
He steps in off a base hit in his last at bat.
01:14:44
Good hard sinker that time, and he's in control 02 You have to find a way to lay off that low sinker.
01:14:50
There is just no way to do any damage.
01:14:53
You're just looking at either a brew shin or ground out to the left side banked slider across that time, laid off for a ball 12 now a ball lying toward the alley and left center.
01:15:15
And that'll get down out there for extra bases and they'll have runners at second and third following the one out double.
01:15:24
But baseball is a game of streaks and runs, and he is on one right now.
01:15:29
No question.
01:15:30
He's swinging back very well of late.
01:15:32
And when that's the case, you can't wait to get in the batter's box.
01:15:35
Definitely the case in this game.
01:15:37
That's his second base.
01:15:38
Not this one for extra bases.
01:15:40
That's now two hits so far for him in this.
01:15:43
So striding forward now.
01:15:45
Willson Contreras been a rough go of things at the plate for him so far, but his guys were looking for him to change that right here.
01:15:52
Yeah, nothing better than coming through for the boys in a tight game at, especially when you're kind of due to do something productive, and it looks as though the decision makers in the dugout will give him a free pass to first.
01:16:12
So the bases are loaded here on the intentional walking and the force play is now in order.
01:16:17
Ross Stripling.
01:16:18
It's called a found a pitch, really needing that double play ball bases are loaded here with only one man out.
01:16:33
Victor Tarantini will be the first to meet him here, and they do so in an enviable situation.
01:16:38
Indeed, bases loaded and only one out now from the belt kicks and deals in tight here with first pitch fastball.
01:16:53
That's one from about pitch ripped on the ground first, and he will deliver one of the biggest at bats of the night.
01:17:19
It's a base hit, and not in time is he just crosses the plate in time, dear.
01:17:26
Oh, that's a big R B.
01:17:27
I right there to stretch this lead to three, takes a lot of pressure off your picture going into the bottom part of the end again, Dan, no doubt as an offense, all you're trying to do is put your pictures in positions to be successful.
01:17:39
Giving them that three run cushion has to make you feel.
01:17:51
And now here's the versatile outfielder Albert Almora, Jr.
01:17:55
No balls and a strike account.
01:18:01
Runners at the corners with one man out.
01:18:09
One of one filed away.
01:18:31
12 He got him, and it will probably take a base hit now to get that runner across from third.
01:18:52
Now in the box.
01:18:53
Steven Souza and their runners at the corners First pitch coming here It is close there, but he doesn't get the call with breaking ball.
01:19:15
A strike to even the count.
01:19:17
One in one, runners on first and 3rd 2 away.
01:19:27
Now it's swing and a miss, and he's behind one and two.
01:19:30
That was a good swing right there might be the best.
01:19:33
One is Adul night because he was right on ready to deliver the one and two he got him and exhale as he's out of the jam and the inning is over.
01:19:46
So to run on three hits, no errors and a couple of men left.
01:19:51
Seventh inning stretch time here at the ballpark Cubs Lead it 7 to 4.
01:19:58
Now the skippers on his way out toward the home plate area.
01:20:00
And I believe that means we're gonna have a double switch here.
01:20:08
Ryan's apparent will come on now and will slide into the seven spot in the lineup following the double sweat He in half.
01:20:15
It's into the ballgame as well.
01:20:16
A shell slide into the pitcher's spot, hitting ninth now on the double switch.
01:20:23
So the batting order turns over now and set to go.
01:20:26
Justin Turner, one for two with a double on his line, thus far ready with the first pitch. Here it comes.
01:20:42
Grounder hit hard down the first base line and take it to the bag himself for the out one.
01:20:50
Gone now in the L 1/7 on up next former All Star shortstop.
01:20:55
Full re cedar.
01:21:02
First pitch of the at bat, below the knees.
01:21:05
One ball.
01:21:06
No strength? No.
01:21:25
Here comes the 10 Dr Base hit into the left center field gap around.
01:21:32
First, he's digging for second.
01:21:34
Now this rolls all the way to the wall.
01:21:37
He'll reach second now with one away.
01:21:40
Obviously, didn't last night's hitless out get to his head too much because that's his second hit of the ballgame, This one double.
01:21:47
I'm sure he's feeling a lot better about the way he's going right now.
01:22:04
Now Mookie Betts as he takes a called strike at the knees, its own one.
01:22:09
He's got a hit in three at bats to this point.
01:22:23
01 Here it comes.
01:22:25
No, that's down.
01:22:28
Hey, this is a really pesky hitter right here.
01:22:29
As a pitcher, you really like to keep this guy off the basis.
01:22:32
This is a guy that kind of sets the tables for big innings 11 one out in the runner on second base and Mrs Low here.
01:22:55
So the count goes to three and one.
01:22:57
Well, time run on deck.
01:22:59
He should get something really good hit right here.
01:23:02
In a 31 count, I'd be sitting on a fastball middle in hitter's count all the way.
01:23:09
Here it comes, comes back with a cut fastball for Strike three called on their two down.
01:23:25
It's never a good look to strike out looking, but it's way worse when you do it with guys in scoring position.
01:23:30
Those are the times you really wanna Silguy battle and at least of all, Bellenger at the plate.
01:23:44
Now, as the first pitch years. A good high.
01:23:47
It's full one.
01:23:48
He's working on a one for three thus far.
01:24:04
10 you want to two out here in a runner at second three and one to the Dodgers left fielder.
01:24:31
This is like being a good hitter, runners in scoring position and count leverage in your favor.
01:24:44
31 takes a strike for a full count down three into.
01:24:50
You know he wants to end this inning right here on three and two, but I don't think we'll see him lay one in on the next pitch there with a base open to work with.
01:25:06
Now the pay off pitch home Bellenger conexes.
01:25:10
This is deep to right here in the visitor's bullpen.
01:25:23
Ballenger puts a pair on the board with that homer, his second home run of the game, as it's now a one run game 7 to 6.
01:25:44
We're watching an impressive power display today.
01:25:47
With that when these two teams have now had a combined five homers in this game, this is turning into 05 bombs already in this one.
01:25:59
There's avoided teams right here, miss locations right out over the heart of the plate, and neither side is missing.
01:26:09
So they make a matchup.
01:26:10
Move here and bring on a southpaw to face the left handed hitter do up, and that will bring up the versatile Muncie swings and lines it left, and that'll get down for what should be extra bases on hold all tickets.
01:26:26
Now is the time run gets into scoring position with two out double, Definitely struggling coming in this way, I think we could say that Cold Streak is officially over.
01:26:37
That's his second hit of the game and it goes for extra bases.
01:26:41
We'll see now.
01:26:42
This game proved to be a huge turning point for him into the box. Now a J.
01:26:51
Pollock.
01:26:52
Let's take a look at it.
01:26:53
If it's too low, it's one.
01:26:55
He's two for three and looking for more here.
01:27:09
Seven and one hit on the ground to short time with with Dodgers Do strike for two coming on this two run home run. Seven.
01:27:25
Complete here tonight, It's the Cubs seven on the Dodgers. Six.
01:27:32
Scott Alexander, summoned from the bullpen, is he'll do so to start the eighth number.
01:27:40
God digging in the switch hitter. The impact.
01:27:49
And he's getting his first plate appearance here in the eighth after entering off the bench just a little bit ago.
01:28:04
Become said.
01:28:05
Here's the nothing. Nothing.
01:28:15
01 Here it comes, chased out.
01:28:18
It was own there, and he's down.
01:28:19
Two strikes.
01:28:20
Alexander is adjusting to the new normal.
01:28:23
Has MLB now mandates that relievers reached the end of unending or face three or more batters before being replaced? For a one time lefty specialist like this, that's a big change, protecting on Owen, too, So we'll do it again nothing in to count on the pitch.
01:28:48
Good bike.
01:28:49
That slider is.
01:28:50
He swings through it for the first Out of the people always talk about how important getting leadoff men on faces, and it's true.
01:28:57
So in the eighth inning of a one run game, that's a really nice job of attacking a hitter, sending him packing into the box.
01:29:14
Jason Heyward, in a bouncing ball, found one app.
01:29:26
Nobody on one ball and one strike in the Cubs leadoff batter, 11 home takes a pass, and Mrs, that's Strike two.
01:29:56
Got him.
01:29:57
And that's the third time we've written a K next to his name in this money.
01:30:01
No problems for him on the mountains and seas.
01:30:03
Come out of the pen to start this inning.
01:30:05
That's back to back case, and he's making it look pretty easy.
01:30:09
This has the makings of a good outing so far.
01:30:22
So now to the plate.
01:30:23
David Brody, as first pitch to him is off the plate for a ball one or no, it comes into this appearance in the midst of a one for four day Wanna know, pitch on the way, and that's inside.
01:30:43
Look like the slider in its too, and, oh, bases your empty here with two men out below the zone is swing and a miss all three not close with sinker.
01:31:03
That time when you're playing close games like this, base runners mean everything so he can ill afford to start giving away free passes.
01:31:16
Hit on the ground, out to short Rwanda.
01:31:21
Muncie gets him in with that bill in the inning, comes down in order, will try and hold him in the field.
01:31:27
Now it's 7 to 6 euro one with its on to pitch out of the bullpen in the bottom half of the number, ready to go for the last half of the in the box Now Hernandez was a walk in his last trip.
01:31:54
This things far from over.
01:31:55
Even though we're moving into the back in this game only down by one, all they need to do is get this leadoff guy and there are extra base it away from tying this thing up.
01:32:05
I can't find the zone.
01:32:06
There is, he lays off the breaking ball.
01:32:21
No, it's a breaking build.
01:32:23
It's taken for a ball.
01:32:25
Don't expect this pitcher to throw something over the heart of the plate.
01:32:28
He's gonna have to stay on the corners right here.
01:32:30
Huge spot in this game.
01:32:32
Do not miss over the heart to home.
01:32:38
Cold high in the air, out to left field, They were giving change.
01:32:42
He gets there to make a play for the first out of the inning, stepping in and ready for another shot.
01:32:52
Will Smith over three with a couple of strikeouts for him to this point in the ballgame.
01:33:03
Here it comes, bases empty.
01:33:08
One man found on 11 home taken.
01:33:28
Strike two.
01:33:30
I want to two and two to the Dodgers catcher, so you'd love for him to offer at that one.
01:33:44
But the execution was flawless.
01:33:47
Nice curveball that starts in the zone and breaks just out.
01:33:50
Just great.
01:33:51
Take by the batter.
01:33:52
Ripped down the line 2 to 1 more time.
01:34:03
Swung on and missed. Strike. Three.
01:34:06
Well, it's been a rough Siris for him at the plate so far.
01:34:09
That's four strikeouts in the 1st 2 games so that this pitching staff clearly has in figure.
01:34:20
Baby will pinch hit here, and he's the potential tying run.
01:34:37
This will be chopped foul tying run at the plate.
01:34:57
The one fastball swung on and grounded out towards second and eight innings have come and gone.
01:35:03
Now is the inning is over.
01:35:06
12 three go.
01:35:07
The Dodgers trying toe hold him in the field.
01:35:10
Now it's 7 to 6.
01:35:19
Dylan Floro enters from 10 to start the ninth inning is try to keep the score right where it is heading to the bottom of the ninth.
01:35:27
Dylan settling in now Chris Ryan.
01:35:36
So far, two for three in this, this guy has been unbelievable.
01:35:40
There were billboards outside Wrigley while he was still in Triple A.
01:35:43
And what is he doing? He shows up.
01:35:45
Rookie of the year.
01:35:46
M V P.
01:35:48
Getting line.
01:35:50
A great job pounding his own strike one.
01:35:52
When you got a great hitter in the box, got to get a head count.
01:35:56
Leverage is a must, and it's one on one one and two Now is that one's fouled off here.
01:36:19
Come trying to pick up that outside corner, but this misses and it's back to even a two balls and two strikes.
01:36:33
Smooth.
01:36:38
There's nothing better from a picture standpoint.
01:36:42
A piece of cheese swung and missed.
01:36:45
That pitch looks so inviting hit, but It's awfully tough to put in place stepping in now, have your bias fouled off to the left and out of play.
01:37:06
Two hits in two trips more in thus far.
01:37:17
Here's the old one pitch sent on the ground out, the second reined in, and an off balance throw is in time as he takes one away.
01:37:28
Wow, now with Blake Wilson contrary, first pitch coming here.
01:37:39
It is action in the bullpen now, as the right hander begins to throw out there, the into wind up here comes the own one, heading out toward shallow right in their base hit, throwing to second the tag and they'll get him a second.
01:38:08
And with that, the side is retired.
01:38:10
So no runs or hits here as the air returns out to be unimportant.
01:38:15
Nothing in the Cubs half of the ninth.
01:38:17
Last chance coming up for the guys in blue.
01:38:20
They'll need one to tie.
01:38:21
It's a 76 ballgames.
01:38:26
Now we're gonna have a conference at the home plate area, so it would appear that we'll see a double switch here.
01:38:36
Winkler items on looking for a safe here in the bottom of the ninth inning number set for the bottom of the ninth.
01:38:52
So the lineup flips over and digging in Justin Turner.
01:38:55
He was retired via ground ball last time up.
01:38:58
Hey, it's never easy scoring runs against closer with this lineup.
01:39:02
It's setting up perfectly right now as the leadoff hitter leads off this straight hit on the ground down the first base line, and he'll take this bag himself.
01:39:26
One gun here in the night, leadoff man gonna start at the top of the night that we take a look at believe.
01:39:33
Saves leaders entering.
01:39:35
And, as you say, he's right up there among the league leaders in that department, digging in and looking for more.
01:39:45
Corey Seager hits in four attempts to this point, ready to deliver.
01:39:51
Here's the first pitch wind up and the old one.
01:40:06
Nobody on now, her balls in their one and two Now, I couldn't tell from up here if the hitter was taken all the way.
01:40:19
We're sitting.
01:40:20
Fastball just got knee buckled.
01:40:22
Either way, that was a really good curveball right there.
01:40:25
Move onto the next pitch, two balls and two strikes to Corey Seager.
01:40:35
It doesn't make it back three to.
01:40:38
That's a good pitch to lay off right there, that cutter inside, and that is a really tough pitched for hitters to lay off.
01:40:45
And a lot of times, if you do swing it, that cutter in you're gonna end up with some firewood in a broken back.
01:40:53
Bad explodes is this is popped up and find a way to dodge the shrapnel out there to make the play throughout.
01:41:00
Number two Dodgers are down to their final out now, and that will bring up Mookie Betts, third baseman, hugging the line here.
01:41:10
Now the first pitch and a bit so high with that one.
01:41:13
It's wanna know fans on their feet in a one run ball game in the last of the night.
01:41:22
Not close.
01:41:23
It's too to one now.
01:41:31
The movie into the wind up.
01:41:37
Here's the two on one pic Time to narrow your focus up there at the plate in a one run game because of one of walking, there's a good chance he's going to get something to handle right here.
01:41:52
31 pitch and he lays off ball four.
01:41:57
So now the potential tying run here is aboard.
01:41:59
Late in the game, 40 would get another shot at it here is we take you back to ending number seven was his second home run of the four game was like nothing more than to make it three right here.
01:42:30
First delivery to him on the way, and this pitch is taken on the inner half for strike one one pitch, and this is swung on and missed.
01:42:47
So now they find themselves down to their final strike tonight.
01:42:51
Man, you don't see this in today's game, that much guy who's willing to work East West and struck him out for out number three.
01:42:59
So that'll wrap things up here is they leave the possible tying run.
01:43:03
Stranded it first? Well, Skipper has to be pleased they go on the road.
01:43:07
And when the 1st 2 of this three game series playing for the Sweet Tomorrow type 1726 The final score tonight Chicago comes led this game from the third ending on and never waver.
01:43:20
Content Burns is fit.
01:43:21
Winter of the year.
01:43:22
Alex would.
01:43:23
That's only able to work.
01:43:24
Four innings is he takes the loss.
01:43:27
Dan Winkler hammers down.
01:43:28
Save is 11th of the campaign.
01:43:31
So that's all for us here tonight for my partner's on booth Market rose on Dan Zak and hiding.
01:43:36
Walking on the field.
01:43:37

00:00:17
We are under the lights this evening as we get you set for another edition of baseball on MLB Network tonight.
00:00:24
Game two of this three game series between the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
00:00:30
Major League Baseball on MLB Network is next.
00:00:41
Alex Would lefty from North Carolina against the starting assignment? What's your take on Dan? Hey, I'm really excited to watch this guy, this one.
00:00:50
He's going together, a solid season up to this point.
00:00:53
E R Ray in the low twos.
00:00:55
And that's not an easy thing to do in this day and age of high scoring games and home runs and teams filled with guys that get hit throughout the lineup.
00:01:04
This is a really good pitcher digging in now.
00:01:07
Jason Heyward Way are set for baseball here this evening.
00:01:12
There's a strike at the knees, Owen.
00:01:14
One dandy row.
00:01:15
You check out this Dodger team.
00:01:17
Is they interplay here tonight.
00:01:18
It dropped another one last time out, and in fact, they've won just twice in their last eight tribe.
00:01:24
What an opportunity.
00:01:25
Get a chance to put our eyeballs on one of the best teams in baseball right now.
00:01:28
This team has played so well, their manager has been on point.
00:01:32
Every movie makes is working, timely, hitting, great defense, good bullpen.
00:01:38
The starters have been on point thistles Gonna be special on the changeup is taken for a called third strike, and the leadoff man is gone to begin the booth.
00:02:06
Stepping in now David Brody swings and grounds it too short, scooped up on very quickly.
00:02:14
They're there to gone to start the inning, digging in.
00:02:27
Next to be Chris Bryant is back in the starting lineup for this one after sitting out last night's game right first pitch of the at bat fastball off the plate.
00:02:55
Away, it's Ball one, and there are umpires calling balls and strikes.
00:02:59
Is Mr Earl Hendricks a zero Earl Hendrix? He He's not a guy that gets a lot of complaints by either players or pictures.
00:03:07
He's a pretty good umpire.
00:03:08
Dan Earl's got a great track record in this sport is pretty consistent, and overall, he's been a fair umpire.
00:03:16
11 21 That's a good take on a fastball out of the zone.
00:03:24
Hey, I get it.
00:03:25
He's looking for a ball to drive, but that ball was a little bit too far up in its own.
00:03:29
That's one you normally pop right up count.
00:03:31
Even a two and two.
00:03:44
Here comes loud contact off the bat of blind and sent deep so loud and this wall is gone.
00:03:53
No chance to make a play on that one.
00:04:01
Chris Bryant leaves the yard with a solo shot, eighth home run on the season for him and the Cubs air on the board.
00:04:08
1st 1 to nothing, and we'll employ the use of our show track technology to get a better idea of that home run.
00:04:17
And you see it there 111 miles an hour off the bat.
00:04:20
He certainly squared that one up.
00:04:22
Well, no, here's how.
00:04:34
The year by its looks, a fastball that's in there for strike one that average of 2 91 to start today.
00:04:42
Five homers.
00:04:43
18 driven in into the wind up.
00:04:51
Here comes the own one.
00:04:54
That's a ball 11 What? I don't blame him for not coming over the heart of the plate.
00:05:08
He circled this guy on the lineup card when he got to the yard.
00:05:11
Today he's been swinging one.
00:05:13
The hotter bats in the game with 21 This is where you cash your checks right here.
00:05:25
311 of the best hitters in the game.
00:05:28
You live for situations like this.
00:05:37
Hitter's count all the way.
00:05:39
Here it comes.
00:05:40
He loses him on ball four.
00:05:44
And don't forget he gave up a long ball earlier in this inning so you can understand why he wasn't too aggressive with him there when he got him 23 and one, he wasn't too anxious to challenge him.
00:05:57
There's the young catcher Willson Contreras.
00:06:00
Lifetime history with Alex would two hits in seven tries.
00:06:04
He also has one home run ready with first pitch.
00:06:10
Here it comes sends that one out of play for strike, one by its leads on first with a pair of ants in the inning fastball laid off well below the knees.
00:06:27
Contreras is usually more of a threat When facing left handers like this.
00:06:32
The right handers tend to give him a bit more trouble, so we'll see if that trend continues now is swinging a hard hit grounder, but this will get foul.
00:06:42
It's a ball and two strikes.
00:06:50
I had to sit back on the change up and he did a good job to get the bat on that one.
00:06:58
We'll try again.
00:06:59
One to swing and a miss.
00:07:02
Is he chased with two strikes and that will retire the side.
00:07:20
Jose Quintana is on the mound for the Cubs in this one.
00:07:24
What do you have for us on Denny? Hey.
00:07:26
Thanks, Matt.
00:07:27
Lefty Jose Padano taking the bump right now.
00:07:29
Really? Like this guy? Not overpowering, but great command of the fastball.
00:07:34
And he does something a lot of lefties don't do.
00:07:37
He'll come in with that fastball.
00:07:38
The writings, three pitch guy fastball, curveball, change up, throws all three for strikes.
00:07:44
Not an overpowering guy.
00:07:46
He is really a control artist stepping in Justin Turner.
00:07:50
It lead things off here in the bottom half of the first.
00:07:54
Ah, ball and no strikes, guys.
00:07:56
As we look at the Cubs coming into play here tonight, they're definitely in a nice stretches.
00:08:01
They've won six of their last seven ballgames.
00:08:03
Yeah, Matty, this team has been playing really well right now.
00:08:06
And this is case in point.
00:08:08
Chance to jump out again to another one.
00:08:11
Nothing lead.
00:08:12
They really doing that? They've been on attack early.
00:08:14
Offensive almost ambush like approaches to their at bats, and it's working for him outside.
00:08:22
Three.
00:08:23
No, now, now, here's the pitch.
00:08:36
Good swing.
00:08:37
Just got it.
00:08:38
Trying straightened that one out into his motion.
00:08:44
Here comes the three in one.
00:08:55
This is high in the air, out toward left center, Hayward on the run.
00:09:01
We can't get there in time, and now it hops over the wall for a ground rule double that will bring a smile to managers.
00:09:10
Face every single time first hitter of the inning just squares it up and bounces it over the fence.
00:09:16
Even if it stays in the yard, that's a double.
00:09:18
Either way, next at the plate will be Corey Seager says he'll take a breaking ball too low, and it's one known to come in here in 2 59 6 home runs.
00:09:28
10 R B I fires in a strike, this time to make it one ball and one strike.
00:09:42
No one out with a runner at second hold high in the year out to right field, Sousa moves to his right and put this one away in the alley for out number one, so that will bring in Mookie Betts.
00:10:09
She'll look to bring on that tying run from second with a base it into the outfield.
00:10:28
Here comes the first pitch runner at second here with one man out that evens it up one on one from the booth pitch.
00:10:53
All right, get out to a second, and that will get through into center field for basis, and they won't risk it 1/3.
00:11:11
So they're at the corners now with only one away.
00:11:16
There's a hard hit ball pitcher not able to get a love on a hard single up the middle.
00:11:21
Watch lips right there.
00:11:22
Dan sent it back.
00:11:27
So here's cleanup.
00:11:29
40 Ballenger and they'll be looking to change his fortunes in this one.
00:11:33
His numbers take a bit of a dive in recent action.
00:11:46
First delivery to him on the way.
00:11:49
Hard hit ball short by his fields it cleanly to second for one relay to first in time.
00:11:55
And just like that, the side is retired.
00:11:58
Your basic six 43 Get him out of danger.
00:12:01
Don't touch that remote.
00:12:02
More on MLB network right after this striding in Victor Tarantini get a started in the top of the second, ready to deliver.
00:12:19
Here's the first pitch and there's a fastball well off the plate inside, well below the knees, laid off on the change up there to, well, count pitch too high.
00:12:42
And it's three, and no, He walked a guy back in the first, and now he's looking like he might hand out another free pass to the leadoff guy.
00:12:50
Here, you can be walking a guy an inning and think you're going to have any success.
00:12:57
Here it comes 30 and it's up to a 32 full count now, and here's a ball hit in the air, but this will land untouched next 32 and that misses for Ball four.
00:13:31
So it's a leadoff walk here to start the second.
00:13:35
That leadoff walk is a great way to start that anyone you're looking had the lead could be the beginning of good things here in this happening.
00:13:46
Stepping into the box.
00:13:48
Albert Almora, he's ready.
00:13:59
Here's the first offering a called strike on the knuckle curve, and he's ahead in the count.
00:14:04
Nothing in one and this one's downstairs.
00:14:22
It's a ball in and strength Almora, a 25 year old.
00:14:26
He's a five year vet of the major league level.
00:14:33
Now, the one in one pitch in the air at toward right field bets has a read on it, and he calls it in for the first out of the inning.
00:14:47
The number 20 standing in Steven Souza.
00:14:55
You get to take his first cuts here from about the pitch.
00:15:12
Second inning.
00:15:13
Here is the Cubs lead this one early.
00:15:14
One swung on and missed that strike. Two.
00:15:30
Two.
00:15:31
Quick strikes and out you go to this is on the ground over the 1st 1 there throat Muncie to finish the double play that retires the side.
00:15:40
Nothing doing here this half on now to the bottom of the second.
00:15:44
It's the Cubs won and the Dodgers nothing so striding in Max Muncy and you'll be one of watch out for in this one.
00:15:56
Very good numbers in recent games.
00:16:09
Infield in the over shift here. Now the pitch.
00:16:13
Start him out away with a cold strike.
00:16:23
One pitch, and this ball is heading for the seats down the right side of the counter.
00:16:31
Move to own.
00:16:32
To now, check Swing here with that clearly breaks the plane as he set down for the first out.
00:16:45
Fooled him just enough with that pitch to get him go around.
00:16:48
According to the umpire.
00:16:49
Sometimes it can be really tough for the big, strong guys, because once they're committed swinging, it's hard for them to slow their swings down.
00:16:57
And that appeared to be the case there now, a fastball that couldn't quite find his own.
00:17:03
It's ball one Quintana playing here in his age, 31 season.
00:17:08
This is the final year of his current deal, so he'll be a free agent at season's end.
00:17:12
You know, Maddie, I know he's in the final year of his contract, but he's playing to expectations, To be honest with you.
00:17:18
I know he wants to turn it up a little bit, though, as he approaches the end of the season and make that salary push.
00:17:24
Has he had stored free agency again? And he'll pull into second with one away as a hitter, only feeling better than getting a driving one in here like that? He s a lot of the doc's going.
00:17:37
He was guaranteed a double, but I think he had thoughts of maybe a triple if the outfielder hadn't gotten back in right away.
00:17:43
Yeah, there really wasn't any question about that one going for extra bases off the back, throw behind the runner at second, and he just manages to get his hand in.
00:17:59
Now kick a Hernandez.
00:18:01
Watch a first pitch curveballs drop in there for strike one.
00:18:04
He did not play last night, but clearly back in the starting nine for this one way, the old one pitch just behind the fastball there.
00:18:21
Two strikes now, and that's just a great mix of pitches right there.
00:18:24
And that's what this guy's gonna do if he's gonna keep this team off. Balance.
00:18:28
Hernandez behind the ball and two strikes 12 No.
00:18:42
Expect a challenge right here.
00:18:43
Does not want to run the count for one out.
00:18:47
A runner on second base, hard towards center.
00:18:57
That's in their face.
00:18:58
Hit is on his way.
00:19:00
Home tag and he's in There were all square at one apiece.
00:19:06
Everything done right down on both sides to defensive side and the offensive side to send him, and the outfielder made a strong, accurate throw.
00:19:15
That runner was safe.
00:19:16
No doubt about it.
00:19:17
That's one of those where you gotta be aggressive.
00:19:19
That's 1/3 base coach.
00:19:20
You know, the outfielder has a strong during arm.
00:19:23
You're taking your a lot of things.
00:19:25
We're trying to get through a decision to send a good send in a close play, but it all worked out at the plate.
00:19:31
Will Smith, and he really thrives in the batter's box here at home, something to keep an eye on in this one.
00:19:42
First delivery to him on the way, and he starts the number eight hitter with a strike.
00:19:47
Nothing in one.
00:19:57
And it's quickly owing to runner on first here with one gun in a 11 time.
00:20:11
And he found this one off the next two missions, and that will move it to one and two now a fishing bite there on that old to breaking ball.
00:20:30
But you got to be careful because this picture might throw him another one ball and two strikes.
00:20:40
Here's the *****.
00:20:41
You know that he went with the OSP e there once he got going to, but now that they both missed, I think we'll see more of a challenge pitch here.
00:20:50
You don't have to give in, but you can't be too cute either.
00:20:58
Here.
00:20:59
Now, the 22 is swung on and missed, He got him.
00:21:03
What I like about that strikeout guys is that he came back with a fastball on to do.
00:21:08
He was heading the count going to earlier.
00:21:10
But instead of continuing to nibble of it, he decided to get aggressive again and the challenge with his hard stuff into the box.
00:21:27
Now Alex would filed away and mrs with it, one and one.
00:21:50
He's a veteran out on that mound.
00:21:52
He understands he has to establish that inside.
00:21:54
Fastball toe, open up the outer half of the plate.
00:22:05
Ventana sets 11 on its way.
00:22:07
Bouncer up the middle.
00:22:09
Bias has it pro on the second for the force in the side is retired.
00:22:15
So more of the colorful characters here at the ballpark tonight.
00:22:20
More baseball on MLB Network.
00:22:22
Right after this now to the plate, the pitcher Jose Quintana get his first opportunity in this one.
00:22:41
I want to know now.
00:22:48
10 nice adjustment out on the mound, overthrew the 1st 1 a little bit, but got on top and let that ball ripped right out in front of him.
00:23:06
Now the one in one pic mrs for the second swing and a miss it a ball trailing out of his own to and to John.
00:23:25
The way pops this one up Muncie as room and foul territory.
00:23:33
But this a land untouched 2 to 1 more time, swung on and missed.
00:23:39
You got him.
00:23:41
Now I know he struck out there, but for a picture that's a pretty solid at that time, you could make it a losing picture out there, working through quite a few more extra *****es.
00:23:51
That's a quality A B in my book.
00:23:59
So that will bring up Jason Heyward as the first pitch Mrs to him.
00:24:04
It's ball 1/1 here in the early going, fouled off.
00:24:23
Lucky.
00:24:24
He got a piece right there.
00:24:25
He was definitely laid on that pitch after seeing a previous off speed pitch, and he takes a cold strike two and it's fouled away.
00:24:42
Bases your empty, one man out on the ground and right at the shifted infield.
00:24:52
Diving try, but he can't haul it in its through for a basis.
00:24:56
Danny, I know that's not the execution he was looking for right there.
00:25:00
That batter's eyes lit up on that pitch.
00:25:02
Not a really good change of one of the things Mark.
00:25:04
This picture will do you use that changeup like most pictures will use the curveball.
00:25:09
His changeup is that good.
00:25:11
That one wasn't, though, into the box.
00:25:14
David Brody as he lays off a fastball too low for Ball one.
00:25:19
He's over one after grounding out in his only trip to the plate so far.
00:25:34
One home.
00:25:36
That's all clearly working the bottom of the zone, trying to get a ground ball for a double play runner at first year. One man out.
00:25:47
Throw over to the bag, a dive.
00:25:49
Buddies back outside and low three.
00:26:04
And after those two breaking balls missed.
00:26:07
You have to be sitting on a fastball right here.
00:26:22
There's a good breaking balls.
00:26:23
It gets the bottom of the zone.
00:26:26
Runners on first with one down on a gift of a swing There.
00:26:36
It's three and two now.
00:26:38
There was great arm action on that 31 change up right here.
00:26:41
He's got this guy thinking, that's the beauty Right now you go to a full county sit changeup.
00:26:48
Meanwhile, now this is trouble down the right field line.
00:26:51
This should be extra bases.
00:26:54
Now it's cut off a throw to the plate on the tag will be too late as they take the lead.
00:26:59
Now it 2 to 1.
00:27:01
So much of this game is situational hitting guys.
00:27:04
Nice job there.
00:27:05
You've got to find a way to pick your teammates up when you're given the chance and he doesn't try to do too much right here.
00:27:12
He just takes what's there safely on second and his buddies high fiving teammates in the dugout.
00:27:23
So run a report it second here with one away and into bat next, former national again VP Chris Bryants.
00:27:30
That last at that.
00:27:31
When he went deep, he turned around a pretty good fastball.
00:27:33
So I'm kind of thinking this guy's a good fastball hitter, so I might want to move that ball up and down and in and out, trying not to throw right down the middle of the plate, ready to deliver.
00:27:50
Here's the first pitch runner at second here with one man out, ready on owing to on, this one gets away and he's gonna make it up to third.
00:28:15
Here is he advances on the wild pitch that can be a tough read as a runner on second to see if the ball it's gotten away enough to move the third.
00:28:23
You have to be sure you can make it.
00:28:25
He was there, and now he's only 90 feet away.
00:28:40
Knuckle curve there and he thought he had him.
00:28:42
But it's too, and to his pitch count is really spiked here in this inning.
00:28:47
He's upto over 50 already and that Mrs there.
00:29:02
So he runs the count full now for the guy on the mound.
00:29:05
This is one of those innings where nothing comes easy.
00:29:08
He's throwing a bunch of pitches, and this A B hasn't been any different, definitely laboring at the moment, and a fastball swung on and hit the second.
00:29:21
Reined in.
00:29:23
The first is in time, but meanwhile, the runner is in to score.
00:29:28
That ground was hard hit, and sometimes the runner third will have to hold on a ball like that.
00:29:34
But he was off on contact, and they opted to take the out at first instead, so bases air empty here with two gone and into bat.
00:29:53
Next, the versatile weapon hobby year by it first pitch of the at bat on its way string on that 11 strike one in front of a change up and he can't keep it fair.
00:30:14
Two strikes on him now, after fouling off the 2nd 1 I got to step out of the box.
00:30:20
That just my batting gloves and tell myself there's no chance.
00:30:23
He's tripling up on that pitch.
00:30:26
Not a bad pitch there with two strikes, but it misses one and two.
00:30:33
Taken off the outside is the breaking ball.
00:30:35
Couldn't catch the corner set to deal on two and two counting.
00:30:54
Willson Contreras would be next full count.
00:31:04
Here.
00:31:05
Here comes the pitch, and he loses him on a breaking ball.
00:31:11
Yeah, the pitching coach would hate to go to the bullpen this earlier game, but sometimes you have no choice.
00:31:17
On the flip side, he might just get in his face a little bit out there, trying to challenge him.
00:31:21
Wake him up from this fund.
00:31:22
Either way, we'll see how it works.
00:31:34
So it's a runner at first with two gone, stepping up to hit next, the catcher Willson Contreras, from the belt kicks and deals.
00:31:50
Fastball here is you'll take a look a ball 11 and we're only in the third inning and his pitch count is above 60 that's not being too efficient with your pitches.
00:32:06
The 10 it's one thing to get hit around, but it's far worse when you're getting yourself into trouble by not throwing strikes.
00:32:15
Every picture's been there, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating or unacceptable.
00:32:26
Popped him up.
00:32:32
Turner is there to make the catch in.
00:32:34
The side is retired, so it's two runs on two hits, no errors in a runner left.
00:32:41
We'll head out of the home.
00:32:42
Half of ending.
00:32:43
Number three cups lead this 13 to 1.
00:32:52
Digging in for his second at bat, Justin Turner will try to follow up with double in his last at bat with another big hit right here.
00:33:00
He's gotta build off that last.
00:33:02
Maybe he battled.
00:33:03
Usually, when you battle, you get in that swing mode, a lot of pitches, you'll swing at the rosin bag.
00:33:08
I love the fact that he was able to work a bubble in last at bat.
00:33:11
Let's see if we get more of the same right here.
00:33:22
And here's a fastball that's nowhere near the zone.
00:33:24
It's to an owner three and oh, now well, he was definitely looking fastball here and he got one, but that was good discipline to lay off and get himself into a 30 count Turner in front of three balls in a strike and good patients exercise does.
00:33:57
He works out to walk to lead off the home half of the third.
00:34:06
Here's Greece so far over one with a fly out from the about, the pitch lays off one from the strength liner toward right center, and that's a base it one for two in his first couple of plate appearances, I went to the well one too many times back there, back fastballs.
00:34:47
Hitter was able to keep his hands through, deliver a nice line drive, and he's looking to make something happen here.
00:34:59
With two on and nobody out well earned account.
00:35:02
Expect him to look for a ball to drive.
00:35:04
If he gets two strikes against him, you'll need to change this plan and focus on moving the runners up.
00:35:09
This game is too close to get greedy.
00:35:21
First pitch coming here.
00:35:22
It iss oh on one count in the pitch, our pitch around the knees, but it doesn't quite catch the bottom of his own.
00:35:48
No offer on that 12 balls and a strike.
00:35:52
Great chance right here is a hitter to be really aggressive with two guys already on a pretty good shot.
00:35:57
He's going to get a challenge.
00:35:59
Pitch right here, yanked on the ground down the line.
00:36:11
But this will wind up a foul ball two and two from the belt.
00:36:18
Kicks and deals now.
00:36:22
Looks like he tried to elevate a fastball in the 22 pitch there, but kind of overdid it with a pitch that high.
00:36:29
It's pretty easy to lay off if you're the hitter now with three, and to pick still hanging with him.
00:36:38
Another good swing to keep it going.
00:36:43
Wait, Try it again.
00:36:47
32 That's popped up back toward short right field.
00:36:52
Modi stay with it is he backs up and puts it away. One gone.
00:36:57
Two on here with one man, and that will bring forward Cody Ballenger.
00:37:08
First pitch coming here it is.
00:37:10
Strike cold.
00:37:12
Tough to do much with that one with some traffic on the base paths.
00:37:16
Nice job by the pitcher to execute.
00:37:18
Strike right over the top with that current ball on its own to he's following the code not to miss down and into a lefty.
00:37:30
Everything on the outer half of the plate, Nothing in to count and the pitch.
00:37:55
Now this is hit not all that hard out to second and indeed will not even try as he goes to first.
00:38:01
And that means two men are in scoring position with two away.
00:38:07
So two on with two away.
00:38:09
Never bring up the left handed hitter Max Muncy.
00:38:18
First delivery to him on the way like that.
00:38:24
Pitch their lefty on lefty matchup.
00:38:25
Curveball away to a lefty.
00:38:28
Smart *****, he said, the old one hard hit to first.
00:38:34
He has some trouble with it, and they won't be in time.
00:38:38
It will be able to beat out the recovery.
00:38:40
Throw it at the plate A.
00:38:54
J.
00:38:55
Pollock, as he will look a first pitch fastball for two on, two out for him here in the third.
00:39:11
Wanna know? Here it is.
00:39:13
I like taken up in the zone collar.
00:39:17
A 32 year old veteran, he was a first round pick back in 2009 and will be drafted.
00:39:23
Yeah, he has turned himself into a really nice ball player.
00:39:26
I wouldn't put him on a superstar level.
00:39:28
But you know what they didn't miss with this going high rounds and you carve out a career the way this guy has Nice after the double in his first at bat, looks like China hits around this guy a little bit.
00:39:42
Runners at the corners, Two men out, Bolic in front, three balls and a strike.
00:39:52
Couldn't be a whole lot better.
00:39:53
Situation headed now 312 on.
00:39:57
He's got to be thinking he's going to get a pitch.
00:39:59
He can drive right here.
00:40:01
Three and one picks, 3 to 2 out.
00:40:07
Run, run first.
00:40:09
Lots of possible outcomes on this pitch.
00:40:14
Takes this the other way, too right.
00:40:16
Souza is there, and he'll make the catch to retire the side.
00:40:21
It's a run on two hits here for L. A.
00:40:24
On now to the top of ending number four.
00:40:26
It's the Cubs three and the Dodgers to start of the fourth upcoming, but first Heidi Watney standing by with a report.
00:40:40
Thanks smack in between innings.
00:40:41
I was able to catch up with the manager of the Cubs to discuss his thoughts on his line up so far, and overall, he's really happy with the at bats they're putting together.
00:40:49
They've already worked out three walks.
00:40:51
So he feels as though that kind of willingness to let the opposition work themselves into trouble will continue to result in good things for them on the scoreboard.
00:41:00
All right, Heidi, thank you.
00:41:04
So digging in now.
00:41:05
Victor Charity Knee.
00:41:07
He drew a walk his first time up here come grounder down the line in third, but a foul ball here.
00:41:19
Oh, on one.
00:41:22
Now here it comes, and a fast way off target here, and it's even a one.
00:41:29
Now the Dodgers get a right hander up and throwing in their bullpen.
00:41:39
The 11 home and the knuckle freezes him as he becomes out Number one.
00:42:10
Here's Albert Almora next comes into this at bat over one in the ballgame.
00:42:20
First pitch of the at bat on its way, and this is low ball.
00:42:25
One high fly ball after straight away center on the move is Pollard.
00:42:39
He gets there and makes the play for the second out of the inning.
00:42:47
Bases are empty here, with two gone, and that will bring up the outfielder Steven Souza Jr.
00:42:57
John.
00:42:58
The way you know, you think it's an eight hole hitter right there.
00:43:05
You shouldn't be taking that fastball on your right, But when you got the picture hitting behind you, you sometime sit off speed because thats the picture usually going to get the picture does not want to get beat by you.
00:43:17
He's not afraid to walk you and hand it over to and maybe against the pitcher.
00:43:29
11 is looked after ball number two.
00:43:36
We're in the 4th 3 to 2 is our score.
00:43:43
Hit the other way out toward right field bets, has a read on it on.
00:43:47
That's the third out, three up, three down for the Cubs, but they still lead it 3 to 2, just about set to go for the last of the fourth.
00:44:04
But before we do that, here's Heidi Watney, Matt.
00:44:08
During the break, I caught up with Dave Roberts, the Dodgers skipper, about his lineups performance so far and flat out, he was very pleased with the quality of their at bats.
00:44:16
It's still pretty early in the game, but they've seen a lot of pitches already, and he thinks the two runs they pushed across so far is just the beginning.
00:44:23
Given the quality of the Outback.
00:44:25
They're putting together good stuff, Heidi. Thanks.
00:44:30
Bottom of the inning.
00:44:31
Now, now batting.
00:44:33
Kiki Hernandez will follow up the R B I single from his first at bat.
00:44:38
Here's he's ready.
00:44:48
Here's the 01 but foul 12 is laid off for ball, too.
00:45:05
And the sinking fastball called Strike three.
00:45:08
And that's out number one back digging in Will Smith.
00:45:16
They looked to bounce back after striking out last time up.
00:45:19
Kind of shocked.
00:45:20
Got blown away with a fastball.
00:45:22
You could tell he was laid on that one, and we'll see if he tries to cheat to something.
00:45:27
That's a B wind up.
00:45:31
Here comes the 10 and he watches one miss outside, too.
00:45:43
Popped up.
00:45:44
Contreras is there, and he brings it in for the second out of the inning now.
00:45:53
So here's the Dodgers pitcher Alex would first offering on its way.
00:46:07
Hopped up.
00:46:10
But this a land untouched.
00:46:19
John is ready.
00:46:20
Here it is, on a 11 hit the other way out toward right field.
00:46:25
Souza is under.
00:46:26
It makes the catch, and that will retire the side.
00:46:30
123 Go to Dodgers.
00:46:32
Still a 32 ballgame next, it will be the pitcher Jose Quintana.
00:46:45
He's over one thus far.
00:46:50
First pitch of the at bat on its way.
00:46:53
All right.
00:46:56
Oh, and one that missed that ball taken but called for Strike two on the outer part of his own, swinging a ground ball to third on.
00:47:25
It goes right through him in the left field.
00:47:30
You don't see that too much in today's game.
00:47:32
Most guys, it doesn't matter what the count is there looking line.
00:47:35
Drive the ball out of the ballpark.
00:47:37
Not the case here.
00:47:38
Good to strike adjustment.
00:47:40
Able a bunch of ground Jason Heyward, Now high fly ball out to deep right field that's looking up on goodbye.
00:47:59
This one ain't coming back.
00:48:07
Two.
00:48:08
Run home run that time for Jason Heyward, number 148 for his career.
00:48:13
And just like that, it's now a five to a ball game.
00:48:17
You're not afforded as many mistakes when you're not doing that ball in the nineties or above, and this guy needs to be really fine with this location.
00:48:25
You know, Dan, that's just a great swing by that right there, because when you see low velocity guy out on the mound.
00:48:31
That's not gonna blow the heater by you. Maybe.
00:48:34
Sometimes you expand the zone, not the case right there.
00:48:37
He set him up.
00:48:38
He wanted something over the heart of the plate.
00:48:40
He didn't miss it.
00:48:47
Jimmy Nelson will come on in.
00:48:49
Relief will make his second appearance of the season so far.
00:49:07
Now David Brody, second as the first pitch to him, is in there for a called strike one.
00:49:13
Nelson has compiled over 600 innings of work in his major league career and sports and er a right around the major league average at just over four.
00:49:24
And here's one that misses to the Chicago second baseman.
00:49:27
It's a ball in.
00:49:28
The strike is put in play to the right side of the infield.
00:49:36
He's got it on first.
00:49:38
So good mounts back. Pitch.
00:49:40
There is he gets the ground ball for the first out final line there for the Dodgers starting pitcher.
00:49:46
Not the night he or his club were hoping for.
00:49:50
A.
00:49:51
This was just one of those games that just weren't meant to be.
00:49:52
When you add it all up, had a rough time, only lasted four innings, just wasn't able to give them that kind of performance.
00:49:59
They were looking for going into this one.
00:50:08
Here's the first pitch to him.
00:50:12
Too much dip on the sinker laid off for a ball, and he found this one off.
00:50:28
11 five runs, five hits.
00:50:37
No errors so far for the Cubbies.
00:50:42
And he lays off into even the count two and two, and a sinker dips too low there, into the dirt.
00:50:53
In fact, that's where he wants that sinker to end up.
00:50:57
But that was a nice job of laying off and close their on three and two.
00:51:09
But take your base, says Earl Hendrix.
00:51:10
Sits ball four.
00:51:12
Well, the reason power hitters generally draw more walks and other guys is exactly what we saw right there.
00:51:17
Pictures work around.
00:51:18
They've been nibble the corners a lot more so they don't get burned.
00:51:22
He made some good pitches, but he just couldn't get him to chase enough out of the zone with plate of your bias.
00:51:29
It was a walk in his last trip, ready to deliver.
00:51:33
Here's the first pitch, still only one out in the inning, and he lays off the pitch up on in Bull, too.
00:51:47
You want to talk about being in his own.
00:51:49
This guy's been raking lately, and it all starts with this pitch selection to great takes, and he's almost daring the picture.
00:51:55
Just go ahead and challenge him.
00:51:58
Takes this the other way to right, and that's in their base.
00:52:01
Hit and they'll have runners at the corners following one out.
00:52:07
Single count.
00:52:09
Leverage right there.
00:52:10
Sitting dead red fastball on.
00:52:12
He didn't miss it.
00:52:13
Nice swing right there, driving it into the outfield.
00:52:16
For now, next head will be Willson Contreras as well.
00:52:26
Take a look at a high strike that time.
00:52:28
It's nothing in one over to for him to this point.
00:52:41
Oh, in one delivery and look out, up and in and nearly took his head off.
00:52:47
That'll wake everyone up.
00:52:49
Any time you buzz the tower like that, there's a reason for people to start getting a little bit edgy.
00:52:56
Gets him to swing at a pitch down and out of his own one and two big pitch coming up right here.
00:53:02
He'd love for a ground ball or a strike out.
00:53:17
12 is taken for bull, too.
00:53:22
Both teams, with six hits so far, stand alive putting together a really good at bat here.
00:53:35
You can definitely tell with that foul off right there that he's picking up spin on this pictures off speed stuff.
00:53:41
Maybe expected fastball on this next one struck him out.
00:53:51
Next, a bad will be Victor Tarantini, and we'll see what he could do here with a pair of runners on base and two gone here in the fifth from the belt.
00:54:04
Kicks and deals close there, but he doesn't get the call with breaking ball one and five runs, six hits, no air.
00:54:13
We're so far for the Cubbies, just a bit high with fastball but didn't get the call.
00:54:23
He's gonna have to have a talk with the umpire after this half inning, but if he's not gonna get those calls, he's got to come a little bit more over the heart of the plate.
00:54:31
And that usually means damage done.
00:54:42
And its two balls and two strikes now great job by the picture right there, changing I levels.
00:54:47
We all know he's a sinker ball pitcher, but if he could throw some four seamers up in his own, a swing and a miss that retired the side and that will do it.
00:54:59
Two for the Cubs in the inning on the strength of this two run home run onto the bottom of the fifth.
00:55:05
It's now five to Chicago leading off the inning.
00:55:14
Justin Turner to get something going here, ready to deliver.
00:55:29
Here's the first pitch like the fastball got away from him there.
00:55:34
Pitcher wants to have a quick inning right here.
00:55:36
Capitalize on the Mo Mentum is batters have one and one to the Dodgers lead off man, a couple of righties starting to loosen now in the bullpen, 11 home heading out toward shallow right.
00:56:07
Souza is under.
00:56:08
It makes the play one away.
00:56:16
Standing in Corey Seager but headed to tried so far.
00:56:23
First delivery to him on the way.
00:56:29
We're in the fifth inning here.
00:56:30
Five to is our score, and there's bold one one in one down the third base line.
00:56:47
But a foul ball one and two now did a good job to shorten up and protect the plate, and he'll have another shot at it here.
00:57:00
Not surprised he's late on a heater right there.
00:57:02
Just saw an off speed pitch, one to stay back a little bit too long when he can't catch up to the fastball as he swings and misses for the second.
00:57:10
That was a good job, tying him up one side on that strikeout pitch.
00:57:14
It wasn't even in the strike zone, but with the hitter protecting with two strikes, that's the kind of pitch you can get him to offer it.
00:57:21
And he's probably not gonna do much with it when he does make contact.
00:57:29
Stepping in now.
00:57:30
Mookie Betts Take a look at one hidden two at bats for him at this point in the booth into his wind up.
00:57:45
Here comes the 10 hit in the air to center field.
00:57:50
Waiting on it is Al Maura.
00:57:54
He makes the play and that will end the inning.
00:57:57
Dodgers down in order and the deficit remains 5 to 2.
00:58:11
Coming to the plate now.
00:58:13
Albert Almora.
00:58:14
He'll get it started against Jimmy Nelson.
00:58:16
As we get the ending underway.
00:58:21
He's ready.
00:58:22
Here's the first offering what right hander starts to loosen out of the bullpen.
00:58:29
Now one count.
00:58:40
Here's the pitch.
00:58:42
What behind Owen to now? Nothing in to count and the pitch and a good sinker there gets him swinging for the first out, ready for another shot Now Steven Souza.
00:59:05
It's been over.
00:59:06
Two.
00:59:07
Effort for him to this point.
00:59:14
Ready with the first pitch. Here it comes.
00:59:17
It's the outside corner.
00:59:19
It's strike one waiting inside with that one.
00:59:29
A pretty easy.
00:59:30
Take their 52 is our score here in inning number six 211 Now to Steven Souza.
00:59:46
He's fallen behind, down three and one.
00:59:49
Good job to work.
00:59:50
The count put himself back in.
00:59:51
The driver's seat.
00:59:52
Started off with one strike in.
00:59:54
Now he's got to count his favorite three and one now sinker this time, but this ball stays outside as he loses.
01:00:01
In here, it's Ball four and that whole of that.
01:00:04
I feel like you really didn't want to challenge him, and I'm really surprised by that, because I think this is a guy in the bottom 30 order.
01:00:11
You have to go right after so a runner at first.
01:00:16
Now, with one away and up next, the pitcher Jose Quintana from the belt kicks and deals and they'll try and play for one.
01:00:30
Here is he gets this one down to second for one relay throw, but it will be too late as he's well, safe.
01:00:38
Jason will stand it again as we flash back with little innings here.
01:00:43
This was a big blow.
01:00:44
A two run home run really got his guys going first, offering on its way one or no delivery.
01:01:15
Now a good pitch on the inside part of the plate ties him up, and it's one and one.
01:01:20
Well, that's a jam shot right there.
01:01:22
That's just good gets in my bin.
01:01:24
Who up it in? No offer on that 12 balls and a strike runner on first with two away counts, even the Hayward two balls and two strikes open to send him packing pitch on its way.
01:01:52
Good spot for an R B.
01:01:54
I put the ball in play with the runner in motion.
01:01:56
He could score all the way from first.
01:01:58
Now the three and two freezes him a strikeout looking one left for the Cubs, and it remains 5 to 2.
01:02:15
Next will be the Dodgers cleanup hitter Cody Bellingen has hit listening to and fat so far.
01:02:22
First pitch of the advance hit pretty well out toward right.
01:02:27
Center field center fielder going back, Still going back.
01:02:40
It's a solo homer for Cody Bellenger.
01:02:43
Seven home runs for him on the year now, and it's a 53 game.
01:02:47
Now listen.
01:03:02
There's an old adage in baseball that solo home runs won't kill you.
01:03:05
This is one of the top hitters in that lineup.
01:03:07
So home run a solo home run right here.
01:03:14
Chicago skipper, now a pound of a dugout on his way to the mound.
01:03:18
He's gonna make a change that will do it for Jose Quintana.
01:03:22
So the good news is you wind up going records in five innings for the victory.
01:03:26
But he does leave his bullpen some considerable work to do before this is done.
01:03:35
Alec Mills takes over on the mound here with nobody out in the sixth inning.
01:03:55
Next up is Max Muncy.
01:03:58
We'll take a look at a picture that misses for Ball 11 for two in the ballgame.
01:04:03
Thus far, I think this is hit the other way out toward left field.
01:04:18
Hayward has a read on it, one down, no riding in once again a J.
01:04:30
He doubled earlier in the game, one to this point, first offering on its way.
01:04:44
Some action out in the bullpen.
01:04:45
Couple of right handers starting to loosen up one app.
01:04:54
Nobody on Fooled with the curveball there, and it's strike two offered at that breaking ball below the zone, and that's a tough one to spit on.
01:05:07
But the key is recognizing it, coming out of the pictures and earlier, making sure that it goes up before it comes down.
01:05:14
More likely to be a hanger when that's the case.
01:05:19
Fastball here that'll wisely layoff in its one and two.
01:05:23
Well, try to throw a high fastball right by him.
01:05:26
There didn't work, but now we'll see if that sets up some different options.
01:05:30
Wouldn't be surprised to see a good slider down in a way right here.
01:05:33
Fouled away bases, your empty one man.
01:05:43
Tough curveball that time, But he's able to make a little contact to keep his at bat going again.
01:05:49
A 12 all right.
01:06:02
This one has hit a ton at the centre, racing back the center fielder batter's eye for a home run and impressive shot dead center field.
01:06:17
So it's a solo shot dead center, his first home run of the season as they pulled within one Here.
01:06:23
It's now a 54 game standing in Hernandez.
01:06:54
Look a fastball in there on the outer half.
01:06:57
One hit in two tries for him so far.
01:07:07
Wind up and the old one.
01:07:11
And that Mrs.
01:07:12
One and one two balls and a strike.
01:07:28
Two one.
01:07:31
Strike two swinging.
01:07:33
I would like to see a little bit more discipline in that you get a count.
01:07:36
Your favorite swinging a pitch that bad. Not good.
01:07:44
Fouled off.
01:07:48
Still, only one out in the inning breaking ball called just a bit low.
01:08:05
Awfully close there on three and two.
01:08:07
But take your base, says Earl Hendrix.
01:08:09
It's full four, man.
01:08:10
That's just painful for a pitcher right there.
01:08:13
A three to offering that was right on the corner, but he couldn't get him to chase, and he doesn't get the call.
01:08:19
Can't beat yourself up about that too much now, with Blake Will Smith over to on his line thus far.
01:08:33
First pitch coming here it ISS and he throws the fastball by AM here.
01:08:38
One runner at first year.
01:08:40
One man out, one ball, one strike.
01:08:54
He threw that pitch with purpose to get a double play.
01:08:57
Good job, political by the was a hitter ready with 11 pitch.
01:09:06
Here's a changeup taken, but it finds the zone on the inside on its filed away.
01:09:32
Another one to strike three on a pitch in the dirt and it's not in time is he's in well ahead of the throw.
01:09:41
They were hoping for possible tying run in scoring position.
01:09:46
Chris Taylor look to provide a little too out thunder off the bench is hit with a second and two away That's popped up.
01:10:07
Charity Me Foul ground.
01:10:10
Got it to end the inning as they'll strand the time run in scoring position.
01:10:14
So two runs come across here, both coming via the solo home run.
01:10:19
Seventh inning coming up.
01:10:21
Cubbies.
01:10:22
Air in front, 5 to 4, trying.
01:10:27
It is on to pitch from the bullpen now to start any number seven Digging in David Brody was a ground down fixed in the last time up.
01:10:57
Here's the pitch.
01:10:59
Now it's swing and a fly ball, and it's a foul ball.
01:11:12
Another one filed off, and he's quickly behind a 12 Nothing in to count and the pitch training.
01:11:28
A former member of the Oakland A's was signed as a free agent in the middle of last season.
01:11:33
Yeah, I know he expected to get a longer term deal, but these are the facts.
01:11:37
Right now.
01:11:38
He is on a one year deal, and he is gonna have to produce if he is gonna get that multi year he's been looking for.
01:11:43
Come off season 12 to to to to live all three.
01:12:22
Just when you needed a shutdown inning, a leadoff walk was certainly not on the agenda.
01:12:27
He needs a bear down right here.
01:12:44
Payoff pitch swung on and missed.
01:12:47
He got him on strikes.
01:12:49
Nice job there, taking care of the leadoff hitter B of the strike.
01:12:52
And I'll tell you in a one run game, especially this late reading that first guy in the inning.
01:12:57
It's so important.
01:12:58
It changes the whole complexion of the inning.
01:13:01
So that was a big out.
01:13:14
Here's Chris Bryant.
01:13:15
Now look a fastball too high for Ball one.
01:13:20
He's working on a one for two games so far now a swing and a miss, and I don't think he was expecting a pitch inside.
01:13:40
It's one and one groundball left side defence set up perfectly.
01:13:53
Field it cleanly and safe at first as he beats this one out by about 1/2 a step, and that's great hustle right there, out of the box.
01:14:02
Not everybody's getting it right out the chute from step one, but I have to ask you how frustrating executing a pitch.
01:14:09
And there's an infield non.
01:14:11
It is the road you could read that right off the bat is a picture.
01:14:13
You can read the angle.
01:14:14
You know that that ball is going to be hit on the ground and you're thinking deep down inside.
01:14:18
Okay, there's a quick out.
01:14:19
It just wasn't meant to be.
01:14:21
And that brings up probably bias.
01:14:23
And he found this one off.
01:14:25
He steps in off a base hit in his last at bat.
01:14:44
Good hard sinker that time, and he's in control 02 You have to find a way to lay off that low sinker.
01:14:50
There is just no way to do any damage.
01:14:53
You're just looking at either a brew shin or ground out to the left side banked slider across that time, laid off for a ball 12 now a ball lying toward the alley and left center.
01:15:15
And that'll get down out there for extra bases and they'll have runners at second and third following the one out double.
01:15:24
But baseball is a game of streaks and runs, and he is on one right now.
01:15:29
No question.
01:15:30
He's swinging back very well of late.
01:15:32
And when that's the case, you can't wait to get in the batter's box.
01:15:35
Definitely the case in this game.
01:15:37
That's his second base.
01:15:38
Not this one for extra bases.
01:15:40
That's now two hits so far for him in this.
01:15:43
So striding forward now.
01:15:45
Willson Contreras been a rough go of things at the plate for him so far, but his guys were looking for him to change that right here.
01:15:52
Yeah, nothing better than coming through for the boys in a tight game at, especially when you're kind of due to do something productive, and it looks as though the decision makers in the dugout will give him a free pass to first.
01:16:12
So the bases are loaded here on the intentional walking and the force play is now in order.
01:16:17
Ross Stripling.
01:16:18
It's called a found a pitch, really needing that double play ball bases are loaded here with only one man out.
01:16:33
Victor Tarantini will be the first to meet him here, and they do so in an enviable situation.
01:16:38
Indeed, bases loaded and only one out now from the belt kicks and deals in tight here with first pitch fastball.
01:16:53
That's one from about pitch ripped on the ground first, and he will deliver one of the biggest at bats of the night.
01:17:19
It's a base hit, and not in time is he just crosses the plate in time, dear.
01:17:26
Oh, that's a big R B.
01:17:27
I right there to stretch this lead to three, takes a lot of pressure off your picture going into the bottom part of the end again, Dan, no doubt as an offense, all you're trying to do is put your pictures in positions to be successful.
01:17:39
Giving them that three run cushion has to make you feel.
01:17:51
And now here's the versatile outfielder Albert Almora, Jr.
01:17:55
No balls and a strike account.
01:18:01
Runners at the corners with one man out.
01:18:09
One of one filed away.
01:18:31
12 He got him, and it will probably take a base hit now to get that runner across from third.
01:18:52
Now in the box.
01:18:53
Steven Souza and their runners at the corners First pitch coming here It is close there, but he doesn't get the call with breaking ball.
01:19:15
A strike to even the count.
01:19:17
One in one, runners on first and 3rd 2 away.
01:19:27
Now it's swing and a miss, and he's behind one and two.
01:19:30
That was a good swing right there might be the best.
01:19:33
One is Adul night because he was right on ready to deliver the one and two he got him and exhale as he's out of the jam and the inning is over.
01:19:46
So to run on three hits, no errors and a couple of men left.
01:19:51
Seventh inning stretch time here at the ballpark Cubs Lead it 7 to 4.
01:19:58
Now the skippers on his way out toward the home plate area.
01:20:00
And I believe that means we're gonna have a double switch here.
01:20:08
Ryan's apparent will come on now and will slide into the seven spot in the lineup following the double sweat He in half.
01:20:15
It's into the ballgame as well.
01:20:16
A shell slide into the pitcher's spot, hitting ninth now on the double switch.
01:20:23
So the batting order turns over now and set to go.
01:20:26
Justin Turner, one for two with a double on his line, thus far ready with the first pitch. Here it comes.
01:20:42
Grounder hit hard down the first base line and take it to the bag himself for the out one.
01:20:50
Gone now in the L 1/7 on up next former All Star shortstop.
01:20:55
Full re cedar.
01:21:02
First pitch of the at bat, below the knees.
01:21:05
One ball.
01:21:06
No strength? No.
01:21:25
Here comes the 10 Dr Base hit into the left center field gap around.
01:21:32
First, he's digging for second.
01:21:34
Now this rolls all the way to the wall.
01:21:37
He'll reach second now with one away.
01:21:40
Obviously, didn't last night's hitless out get to his head too much because that's his second hit of the ballgame, This one double.
01:21:47
I'm sure he's feeling a lot better about the way he's going right now.
01:22:04
Now Mookie Betts as he takes a called strike at the knees, its own one.
01:22:09
He's got a hit in three at bats to this point.
01:22:23
01 Here it comes.
01:22:25
No, that's down.
01:22:28
Hey, this is a really pesky hitter right here.
01:22:29
As a pitcher, you really like to keep this guy off the basis.
01:22:32
This is a guy that kind of sets the tables for big innings 11 one out in the runner on second base and Mrs Low here.
01:22:55
So the count goes to three and one.
01:22:57
Well, time run on deck.
01:22:59
He should get something really good hit right here.
01:23:02
In a 31 count, I'd be sitting on a fastball middle in hitter's count all the way.
01:23:09
Here it comes, comes back with a cut fastball for Strike three called on their two down.
01:23:25
It's never a good look to strike out looking, but it's way worse when you do it with guys in scoring position.
01:23:30
Those are the times you really wanna Silguy battle and at least of all, Bellenger at the plate.
01:23:44
Now, as the first pitch years. A good high.
01:23:47
It's full one.
01:23:48
He's working on a one for three thus far.
01:24:04
10 you want to two out here in a runner at second three and one to the Dodgers left fielder.
01:24:31
This is like being a good hitter, runners in scoring position and count leverage in your favor.
01:24:44
31 takes a strike for a full count down three into.
01:24:50
You know he wants to end this inning right here on three and two, but I don't think we'll see him lay one in on the next pitch there with a base open to work with.
01:25:06
Now the pay off pitch home Bellenger conexes.
01:25:10
This is deep to right here in the visitor's bullpen.
01:25:23
Ballenger puts a pair on the board with that homer, his second home run of the game, as it's now a one run game 7 to 6.
01:25:44
We're watching an impressive power display today.
01:25:47
With that when these two teams have now had a combined five homers in this game, this is turning into 05 bombs already in this one.
01:25:59
There's avoided teams right here, miss locations right out over the heart of the plate, and neither side is missing.
01:26:09
So they make a matchup.
01:26:10
Move here and bring on a southpaw to face the left handed hitter do up, and that will bring up the versatile Muncie swings and lines it left, and that'll get down for what should be extra bases on hold all tickets.
01:26:26
Now is the time run gets into scoring position with two out double, Definitely struggling coming in this way, I think we could say that Cold Streak is officially over.
01:26:37
That's his second hit of the game and it goes for extra bases.
01:26:41
We'll see now.
01:26:42
This game proved to be a huge turning point for him into the box. Now a J.
01:26:51
Pollock.
01:26:52
Let's take a look at it.
01:26:53
If it's too low, it's one.
01:26:55
He's two for three and looking for more here.
01:27:09
Seven and one hit on the ground to short time with with Dodgers Do strike for two coming on this two run home run. Seven.
01:27:25
Complete here tonight, It's the Cubs seven on the Dodgers. Six.
01:27:32
Scott Alexander, summoned from the bullpen, is he'll do so to start the eighth number.
01:27:40
God digging in the switch hitter. The impact.
01:27:49
And he's getting his first plate appearance here in the eighth after entering off the bench just a little bit ago.
01:28:04
Become said.
01:28:05
Here's the nothing. Nothing.
01:28:15
01 Here it comes, chased out.
01:28:18
It was own there, and he's down.
01:28:19
Two strikes.
01:28:20
Alexander is adjusting to the new normal.
01:28:23
Has MLB now mandates that relievers reached the end of unending or face three or more batters before being replaced? For a one time lefty specialist like this, that's a big change, protecting on Owen, too, So we'll do it again nothing in to count on the pitch.
01:28:48
Good bike.
01:28:49
That slider is.
01:28:50
He swings through it for the first Out of the people always talk about how important getting leadoff men on faces, and it's true.
01:28:57
So in the eighth inning of a one run game, that's a really nice job of attacking a hitter, sending him packing into the box.
01:29:14
Jason Heyward, in a bouncing ball, found one app.
01:29:26
Nobody on one ball and one strike in the Cubs leadoff batter, 11 home takes a pass, and Mrs, that's Strike two.
01:29:56
Got him.
01:29:57
And that's the third time we've written a K next to his name in this money.
01:30:01
No problems for him on the mountains and seas.
01:30:03
Come out of the pen to start this inning.
01:30:05
That's back to back case, and he's making it look pretty easy.
01:30:09
This has the makings of a good outing so far.
01:30:22
So now to the plate.
01:30:23
David Brody, as first pitch to him is off the plate for a ball one or no, it comes into this appearance in the midst of a one for four day Wanna know, pitch on the way, and that's inside.
01:30:43
Look like the slider in its too, and, oh, bases your empty here with two men out below the zone is swing and a miss all three not close with sinker.
01:31:03
That time when you're playing close games like this, base runners mean everything so he can ill afford to start giving away free passes.
01:31:16
Hit on the ground, out to short Rwanda.
01:31:21
Muncie gets him in with that bill in the inning, comes down in order, will try and hold him in the field.
01:31:27
Now it's 7 to 6 euro one with its on to pitch out of the bullpen in the bottom half of the number, ready to go for the last half of the in the box Now Hernandez was a walk in his last trip.
01:31:54
This things far from over.
01:31:55
Even though we're moving into the back in this game only down by one, all they need to do is get this leadoff guy and there are extra base it away from tying this thing up.
01:32:05
I can't find the zone.
01:32:06
There is, he lays off the breaking ball.
01:32:21
No, it's a breaking build.
01:32:23
It's taken for a ball.
01:32:25
Don't expect this pitcher to throw something over the heart of the plate.
01:32:28
He's gonna have to stay on the corners right here.
01:32:30
Huge spot in this game.
01:32:32
Do not miss over the heart to home.
01:32:38
Cold high in the air, out to left field, They were giving change.
01:32:42
He gets there to make a play for the first out of the inning, stepping in and ready for another shot.
01:32:52
Will Smith over three with a couple of strikeouts for him to this point in the ballgame.
01:33:03
Here it comes, bases empty.
01:33:08
One man found on 11 home taken.
01:33:28
Strike two.
01:33:30
I want to two and two to the Dodgers catcher, so you'd love for him to offer at that one.
01:33:44
But the execution was flawless.
01:33:47
Nice curveball that starts in the zone and breaks just out.
01:33:50
Just great.
01:33:51
Take by the batter.
01:33:52
Ripped down the line 2 to 1 more time.
01:34:03
Swung on and missed. Strike. Three.
01:34:06
Well, it's been a rough Siris for him at the plate so far.
01:34:09
That's four strikeouts in the 1st 2 games so that this pitching staff clearly has in figure.
01:34:20
Baby will pinch hit here, and he's the potential tying run.
01:34:37
This will be chopped foul tying run at the plate.
01:34:57
The one fastball swung on and grounded out towards second and eight innings have come and gone.
01:35:03
Now is the inning is over.
01:35:06
12 three go.
01:35:07
The Dodgers trying toe hold him in the field.
01:35:10
Now it's 7 to 6.
01:35:19
Dylan Floro enters from 10 to start the ninth inning is try to keep the score right where it is heading to the bottom of the ninth.
01:35:27
Dylan settling in now Chris Ryan.
01:35:36
So far, two for three in this, this guy has been unbelievable.
01:35:40
There were billboards outside Wrigley while he was still in Triple A.
01:35:43
And what is he doing? He shows up.
01:35:45
Rookie of the year.
01:35:46
M V P.
01:35:48
Getting line.
01:35:50
A great job pounding his own strike one.
01:35:52
When you got a great hitter in the box, got to get a head count.
01:35:56
Leverage is a must, and it's one on one one and two Now is that one's fouled off here.
01:36:19
Come trying to pick up that outside corner, but this misses and it's back to even a two balls and two strikes.
01:36:33
Smooth.
01:36:38
There's nothing better from a picture standpoint.
01:36:42
A piece of cheese swung and missed.
01:36:45
That pitch looks so inviting hit, but It's awfully tough to put in place stepping in now, have your bias fouled off to the left and out of play.
01:37:06
Two hits in two trips more in thus far.
01:37:17
Here's the old one pitch sent on the ground out, the second reined in, and an off balance throw is in time as he takes one away.
01:37:28
Wow, now with Blake Wilson contrary, first pitch coming here.
01:37:39
It is action in the bullpen now, as the right hander begins to throw out there, the into wind up here comes the own one, heading out toward shallow right in their base hit, throwing to second the tag and they'll get him a second.
01:38:08
And with that, the side is retired.
01:38:10
So no runs or hits here as the air returns out to be unimportant.
01:38:15
Nothing in the Cubs half of the ninth.
01:38:17
Last chance coming up for the guys in blue.
01:38:20
They'll need one to tie.
01:38:21
It's a 76 ballgames.
01:38:26
Now we're gonna have a conference at the home plate area, so it would appear that we'll see a double switch here.
01:38:36
Winkler items on looking for a safe here in the bottom of the ninth inning number set for the bottom of the ninth.
01:38:52
So the lineup flips over and digging in Justin Turner.
01:38:55
He was retired via ground ball last time up.
01:38:58
Hey, it's never easy scoring runs against closer with this lineup.
01:39:02
It's setting up perfectly right now as the leadoff hitter leads off this straight hit on the ground down the first base line, and he'll take this bag himself.
01:39:26
One gun here in the night, leadoff man gonna start at the top of the night that we take a look at believe.
01:39:33
Saves leaders entering.
01:39:35
And, as you say, he's right up there among the league leaders in that department, digging in and looking for more.
01:39:45
Corey Seager hits in four attempts to this point, ready to deliver.
01:39:51
Here's the first pitch wind up and the old one.
01:40:06
Nobody on now, her balls in their one and two Now, I couldn't tell from up here if the hitter was taken all the way.
01:40:19
We're sitting.
01:40:20
Fastball just got knee buckled.
01:40:22
Either way, that was a really good curveball right there.
01:40:25
Move onto the next pitch, two balls and two strikes to Corey Seager.
01:40:35
It doesn't make it back three to.
01:40:38
That's a good pitch to lay off right there, that cutter inside, and that is a really tough pitched for hitters to lay off.
01:40:45
And a lot of times, if you do swing it, that cutter in you're gonna end up with some firewood in a broken back.
01:40:53
Bad explodes is this is popped up and find a way to dodge the shrapnel out there to make the play throughout.
01:41:00
Number two Dodgers are down to their final out now, and that will bring up Mookie Betts, third baseman, hugging the line here.
01:41:10
Now the first pitch and a bit so high with that one.
01:41:13
It's wanna know fans on their feet in a one run ball game in the last of the night.
01:41:22
Not close.
01:41:23
It's too to one now.
01:41:31
The movie into the wind up.
01:41:37
Here's the two on one pic Time to narrow your focus up there at the plate in a one run game because of one of walking, there's a good chance he's going to get something to handle right here.
01:41:52
31 pitch and he lays off ball four.
01:41:57
So now the potential tying run here is aboard.
01:41:59
Late in the game, 40 would get another shot at it here is we take you back to ending number seven was his second home run of the four game was like nothing more than to make it three right here.
01:42:30
First delivery to him on the way, and this pitch is taken on the inner half for strike one one pitch, and this is swung on and missed.
01:42:47
So now they find themselves down to their final strike tonight.
01:42:51
Man, you don't see this in today's game, that much guy who's willing to work East West and struck him out for out number three.
01:42:59
So that'll wrap things up here is they leave the possible tying run.
01:43:03
Stranded it first? Well, Skipper has to be pleased they go on the road.
01:43:07
And when the 1st 2 of this three game series playing for the Sweet Tomorrow type 1726 The final score tonight Chicago comes led this game from the third ending on and never waver.
01:43:20
Content Burns is fit.
01:43:21
Winter of the year.
01:43:22
Alex would.
01:43:23
That's only able to work.
01:43:24
Four innings is he takes the loss.
01:43:27
Dan Winkler hammers down.
01:43:28
Save is 11th of the campaign.
01:43:31
