How it Happened

The Cubs wasted hardly any time, scoring 2 runs in the second inning. Ben Zobrist scored on an error pickoff attempt, putting the Cubs up 1-0. In the same at-bat,  Victor Caratini hit an RBI single giving the Cubs a 2-0 lead. That was it until the 7th, as both pitching dominated. Caratini drove in his 2nd run of the game on an RBI double. The key 7th inning insurance run made it 3-0.

Jorge De La Rosa and Pedro Strop closed it out, as the Cubs won the shutout.

One Great Moment

Cubs defensive highlights are pretty great. In fact, just about every other play is a nice defensive highlight. Check out a jaw-dropping grab from Addison Russell on another level!
