Atlanta Braves (6-9) @ Chicago Cubs (6-8)

Bryse Wilson (0-0, 0.00) vs. Kyle Hendricks (0-1, 3.00)

Rubber match of 3-gamer at Wrigley. Cubs coming off incredible offensive outburst on Saturday.

M1 — Groundout ends Hendricks' nightmare. Whether or not he retakes the mound in the 2nd is up in the air.

E1 — Cubs add another run via a 2-out rally & error at 3B by Riley. Bryant scores with Baez reaching on a chopper (throwing error by Riley). Heyward grounds out to leave 2 stranded in scoring position.

B2 — Bote leads off with a double to the wall in right-center. Hendricks then lays down a bunt, but Freeman (an excellent defensive player) pounces on it & fires to 3B. Bote tagged out.
