Game 4. Lackey vs Moore

Kevin Powell October 11, 20167:41 PM

All the pressure seems to be on the Cubs now after last night.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20167:42 PM

Moore gets Fowler looking

Kevin Powell October 11, 20167:49 PM

And for the first time this series, Anthony Rizzo gets on base. Draws a walk.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20167:50 PM

Nothing doing for the Cubs in the first half of the inning

Kevin Powell October 11, 20167:54 PM

Leadoff triple for Span. Ripped it down the first base line.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20167:58 PM

Giants strike first. Posey sac fly to right. SF up 1-0. B!.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:06 PM

More boo birds for Baez. They really don’t like him here.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:12 PM

But they really like former White Sox great Conor Gillaspie…big applause after he walked to the batters box.

markcarman23 October 11, 20168:14 PM

Conor Gillaspie is going to be the death of me

markcarman23 October 11, 20168:15 PM

On a positive note, Lackey looks a lot better 

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:20 PM

44 pitches for Lackey

markcarman23 October 11, 20168:21 PM

Quintin Dailey pitches. #Greatbull 

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:22 PM

*46 pitches

markcarman23 October 11, 20168:25 PM

David Ross 

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:25 PM

The man they call ‘Grandpa Rossy’ just tied the game with a solo shot to left. 1-1. T3.

markcarman23 October 11, 20168:25 PM

Muted Cubs dugout on the HR 

markcarman23 October 11, 20168:27 PM

Fowler expanding the zone 

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:28 PM

I screwed up Lackey’s pitch count. 36. Not 46.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:33 PM

Baez unreal. But he’s safe.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:45 PM

Rizzo with a single to center. Now a walk and a hit.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:51 PM

That was Rizzo’s first hit in 14 at-bat’s this series.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:54 PM

Game still tied 1-1. B4.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20168:56 PM

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:00 PM

Giants have runners at first and third. One out. B4.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:03 PM

Lackey walks Blanco. Bases loaded for Matt Moore.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:05 PM

Matt Moore drives in a run.. Pitchers doing it all in this series.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:06 PM

Giatns up 2-1. B4.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:07 PM

Giants get another run in. Fielders choice. Span is fast.

markcarman23 October 11, 20169:08 PM

Should have been out of the inning. Lackey overrunning the bag 

markcarman23 October 11, 20169:13 PM

Lackey due up 4th. Of course Heyward won’t help getting there 

markcarman23 October 11, 20169:13 PM

Moderately hard hit ball by Heyward at least 

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:15 PM

Idk what Crawford was doing with that Baez grounder

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:16 PM

David Ross drives in Baez. Ross having a huge game. SF 3 Cubs 2

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:17 PM

Lackey is done

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:27 PM

Alrighty, so what’s the ruling here?

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:28 PM

Wow, looks to be a about a foot shy of a homer.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:29 PM

Idk how Hunter Pence doesn’t score there.

markcarman23 October 11, 20169:29 PM

Grimm needs to be removed and Maddon doing it. Zero confidence 

markcarman23 October 11, 20169:32 PM

So Pence missed second, went back, if Baez catches the relay clean he has a good shot at him at 3rd 

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:33 PM

Former White Sox great Conor Gillaspie in another big spot…and he comes through, again. Unbelievable.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:34 PM

Giants up 4-2 in the 5th

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:36 PM

Panik sac fly to left. Giants up 5-2. B5.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:39 PM

Inning finally ends. The 6th we go.

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:48 PM

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:56 PM

Carm, you doin ok?

Kevin Powell October 11, 20169:59 PM

Nice, calm inning from Wood. They needed that.

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:01 PM

Carm lmk if you’re alive.

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:05 PM

Matt Moore cruising

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:09 PM

Sellout in San Fran. 43,166 in attendance.

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:12 PM

The Cubs got two hits and one run off Matt Moore.

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:18 PM

Moore’s still out there dealing. Really no reason to pull him yet.

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:26 PM

There’s former White Sox great Conor Gillaspie once again

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:29 PM

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:32 PM

Derek Law takes over in the 9th for the Giants. Three outs, and we’re at Wrigley Thursday night.

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:34 PM

Bryant rips a single. Rizzo up. That’s it for Law. Javier Lopez in.

markcarman23 October 11, 201610:43 PM

Romo you must be fatigued 

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:45 PM

Carm, how are you feeling right now?

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:48 PM

Cubs down, 5-3. No outs. T9. Runners at second and third.

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:53 PM

All tied up! 5-5. Contreras drives in Zobrist and Rizzo. Heyward now at second after throwing error. One out.

markcarman23 October 11, 201610:53 PM

Never lost faith 

markcarman23 October 11, 201610:53 PM

Except when it was 1-0, 3-1, 5-2, 5-3 

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:55 PM

Deathly silent in AT&T Park

Kevin Powell October 11, 201610:57 PM

Here comes Chapman
