Today’s make up game between the Cubs and Atlanta Braves starts late due to rain.  The game gets under way with Jason Hammel taking to the mound against 31 year-old Lucas Harrell making his second start of the season looking for his second win of the year.

Well I wrote everything last night and I didn’t save which is very disappointing to say the least.  So here’s a quick recap.  The Cubs would be held to no runs and four hits by Lucas who makes it 7 and 2/3 innings but after hitting Kris Bryant would be pulled from the game.  Hunter Cevenka comes and hits Anthony Rizzo the Zobrist doubles driving in Kris.  Jim Johnson enters the game to give up a two RBI triple to Wilson Contreras to put the Cubs up by 1.  

Jason Hammel would give up a two run homer in the first to Nick Markakis but would only make it 5 innings.  Wood, Hendricks and Grimm would help preserve it to 2 runs for the Braves but it would be Hector Rondon who blows the save giving up a solo home run to Markakis in the top of the 9th.  He’d close out the 9th and Spencer Patton would enter for extra innings receiving the loss after 11 innings.  With two men on he gives up a single to Tyler Flowers that scores Freddie Freeman for the win.  We wrap up the first half with the Pirates.  

Go Cubs Go!
