We’re live blogging Game 4 of the 2016 National League Division Series – Chicago Cubs at San Francisco Giants
Game 4. Lackey vs Moore
All the pressure seems to be on the Cubs now after last night.
Moore gets Fowler looking
And for the first time this series, Anthony Rizzo gets on base. Draws a walk.
Nothing doing for the Cubs in the first half of the inning
Leadoff triple for Span. Ripped it down the first base line.
Giants strike first. Posey sac fly to right. SF up 1-0. B!.
More boo birds for Baez. They really don’t like him here.
But they really like former White Sox great Conor Gillaspie…big applause after he walked to the batters box.
Conor Gillaspie is going to be the death of me
On a positive note, Lackey looks a lot better
44 pitches for Lackey
Quintin Dailey pitches. #Greatbull
The man they call ‘Grandpa Rossy’ just tied the game with a solo shot to left. 1-1. T3.
Muted Cubs dugout on the HR
Fowler expanding the zone
I screwed up Lackey’s pitch count. 36. Not 46.
Baez unreal. But he’s safe.
Rizzo with a single to center. Now a walk and a hit.
That was Rizzo’s first hit in 14 at-bat’s this series.
Game still tied 1-1. B4.
Giants have runners at first and third. One out. B4.
Lackey walks Blanco. Bases loaded for Matt Moore.
Matt Moore drives in a run.. Pitchers doing it all in this series.
Giatns up 2-1. B4.
Giants get another run in. Fielders choice. Span is fast.
Should have been out of the inning. Lackey overrunning the bag
Lackey due up 4th. Of course Heyward won’t help getting there
Moderately hard hit ball by Heyward at least
Idk what Crawford was doing with that Baez grounder
David Ross drives in Baez. Ross having a huge game. SF 3 Cubs 2
Lackey is done
Alrighty, so what’s the ruling here?
Wow, looks to be a about a foot shy of a homer.
Idk how Hunter Pence doesn’t score there.
Grimm needs to be removed and Maddon doing it. Zero confidence
So Pence missed second, went back, if Baez catches the relay clean he has a good shot at him at 3rd
Former White Sox great Conor Gillaspie in another big spot…and he comes through, again. Unbelievable.
Giants up 4-2 in the 5th
Panik sac fly to left. Giants up 5-2. B5.
Inning finally ends. The 6th we go.
Matt Moore's go-ahead hit was the first by a Giants pitcher in postseason since Hal Schumacher got one in the 1933 WS vs General Crowder

Carm, you doin ok?
Nice, calm inning from Wood. They needed that.
Carm lmk if you’re alive.
Matt Moore cruising
Sellout in San Fran. 43,166 in attendance.
The Cubs got two hits and one run off Matt Moore.
Moore’s still out there dealing. Really no reason to pull him yet.
There’s former White Sox great Conor Gillaspie once again

Derek Law takes over in the 9th for the Giants. Three outs, and we’re at Wrigley Thursday night.
Bryant rips a single. Rizzo up. That’s it for Law. Javier Lopez in.
Romo you must be fatigued
Carm, how are you feeling right now?
Cubs down, 5-3. No outs. T9. Runners at second and third.
All tied up! 5-5. Contreras drives in Zobrist and Rizzo. Heyward now at second after throwing error. One out.
Never lost faith
Except when it was 1-0, 3-1, 5-2, 5-3
Deathly silent in AT&T Park
Here comes Chapman
