E2 — Bote playing 2B tonight. He fields a grounder & pitches it to Baez while falling down. 4-6-3 double play to end inning.

B3 — Sweet DP turned by Bote. After chopper hits off Darvish's glove, Bote fields it cleanly while standing on 2B & fires to 1B. Run scores from 3B.

T4 — Bloop single by Baez hit near the RF line scores KB from 2nd. Rizzo reaches 3rd. Baez seemed to think it was foul off the bat.

T4 — Contreras hits into 6-4-3 DP. Rizzo scores. Baez not running hard out of the box on his bloop hit hurts the Cubs there.

M8 — Cubs score 2 insurance runs w/ 2 outs. Costly 2-out error on a routine ground ball costs the Royals.
