First one here?
KP checking in
Bryant gonna homer off Bumgarner tonight
UPDATE: Kris Bryant is still good
Idk. Probably doing @thecarm things
Classic Bumgarner. Filthy.
Command. Command. Command. That’s what it’s all about tonight for Arrieta.
…and Big Papi’s career is over
Strong start for Arrieta
Lots of pitches though
Boo birds for Baez
What an at-bat for Javy
WOW!! Arrieta just hit a three run jack. Cubs up 3-0. T2.
Was talked about yesterday…pitchers that can hit. Bumgarner and
Arrieta both said they treat each other as position players at the
Jake wants nothing more than a complete game shutout.
Carm is being anti-social, watching by himself and now refusing to move because Arrieta homered.
Big 3-2 pitch…
That was a nasty pitch.
Carm is smart and respecting 90
9 goose eggs Carm, agree?
You don’t give up runs after that HR
Arrieta hit a 3-run homer. Has that been mentioned?
Im going online ExpressMen right now
3 runs win this game?
Giants O/U runs tonight is 0.5
Giants pitcher Matt Moore is being asked in-game about watching Arrieta hit. Bizarre interview
Zobrist….big numbers against Bumgarner.
Cubs making it look easy against Bumgarner
How does it feel to know you won’t touch the mound one time in the entire series?
Bumgarner at 65 pitches. Action in the bullpen.
Making the move. Going to hug Adam Hoge and Andy Masur
Hahaha. Carm moves and the Giants score.
“That’s fine,” he says.
I hate when I premature hug.
A reminder you can even more of my amazing thoughts at @thecarm on twitter.
classic at the carm, plugging @thecarm
Get Andy in here
Former White Sox great Conor Gillaspie at the plate
How nervous ?
Carm, you ok?
Belt with a sac fly to right. Span Scores. Cubs lead down to one. 3-2. B5.
Jake starting to get squared up hard
Derek Law replaces Bumgarner
Arrieta at 85 pitches
Grimm was warming up. Now Montgomery is up.
Big E5 from former White Sox great Conor Gillaspie
Heyward should be in right field ASAP
Remember when Carm and Hoge were contributing to this blog? Good times
Right call. Not enough to overturn that.
Carman can’t focus
To the 7th we go. Cubs up 3-2
Starting show now. For those who can’t watch. Including me.
Heyward in right. Zobrist in left now.
Maddon listening to me
Travis Wood in to pitch to lefty Brandon Belt.
Also this is stupid late for a playoff baseball game to still be on
Yea it is.
Cubs still leading 3-2. T8. Rondon in the pen.
Belt singles off Wood. Here comes Rondon.
Maddon bringing in Chapman
No outs. Two runners on. 6 outs away from the NLCS. Yea, you bring in Chapman. This is what you gave up all those prospects for.
One down. Five to go.
Never liked Chapman
The unexpected, again! Conor Gillaspie drives in two with a triple off Chapman. Giants lead, 4-3. B8.
Chapman couldn’t even get two outs
That was awful.
Cubs down to their last three outs. It’s the top of the order in the 9th trailing 5-3.
Sam, did you like Maddon bringing in Chapman in the 8th?
Kris Bryant! Two run homer. Unreal. This game is insane.
Going to bed … 12:24 am … Great job Major League Baseball zZzZzZz
Cubs can’t score in the 10th. Giants coming to bat.
To the 11th we go
Nothing doing for the Cubs. Giants up to bat. Approaching 1am in Chicago.
Feels like this game started a week ago.
Panik starts things off for the Giants with a single up the middle.
The Giants coming to bat in the 12th
UPDATE: Hunter Pence is still fast
To the 13th we go…
David Ross into hit
Crawford a leadoff double…the Giants a base hit away from ending this.
That’s it. Giants win in 13th, 6-5. Tune into WGN now for the postgame show.
