Cubs got off to a great start in the 1st, with Jon Jay leading off with a walk, followed by Kris Bryant being hit by a pitch, and an Anthony Rizzo walk. Bringing up Ian Happ, with the bases loaded and only one out. Happ delivered with an RBI single. The Cubs had the early lead 0-1 going into the 2nd.
The Toronto Blue Jays tried to get on the board in the 2nd, leading off the inning with a double. A rare error by Bryant, and an intentional walk, left the bases loaded with two outs. Cubs starting pitcher Jose Quintana skillfully got out of the jam and the error, striking out the pitcher to end the inning.
However, in the 4th inning, the Blue Jays took the lead after an RBI single by Raffy Lopez brought two men in, thankfully the damage was limited to just those two run. 2-1 going to the bottom half of the 4th.
Happ led off the home half of the 4th with a solo homer, his 18 of the year, tying the score 2-2.
The Cubbies broke the tie in the 6th, thanks to an RBI single by Javier Baez, making it 2-3 going to the 7th.
Rizzo was able to add an insurance run in the 7th, with an RBI single, changing the score to 2-4 going to the 8th.
It was a good thing they got that insurance run, because in the 8th the Blue Jays brought in a run from an RBI single from Kevin Pillar, making it 3-4 going to the bottom of the 8th.
The Cubs were able to hold their lead, and remain in first in the NL Central. The series finale against the Blue Jays is tomorrow.
