The Cubs fell behind almost immediately as Jason Hammel did not have his best stuff, he allowed the first two men to reach base then gave up a loud three run homer to Nolan Arenado, just like that it was 3-0. A lead that the Cubs would not threaten until late, and even then they came up short. Things got much better for us in the second inning as Jorge Soler ripped a single then went along for the ride on Braynt’s absolute bomb. The only bright spot from the Cubs was Matt Szczur he made things happen, he went 2-for-2, with a run scored, a stolen base, and a dinger.
