The Cubs have been playing well this year (103-58), and had a game on Oct. 2nd against the reds. The Cubs made a late inning come back to win the game. The Reds record is 68-94, so it would have been a pretty good game to watch.
In the first inning the Reds scored 3 runs, and kept the Cubs scoreless. The scores were by Tucker Barnhart, Eugenio Suarez, and Scott Schebler.
There weren’t any scores in the third, but in the 3rd inning, the Cubs scored. Dexter Fowler was the player who scored for the Cubs.
In the 4th Inning both teams scored. Jason Heyward scored for the Cubs. The player who scored for the Reds was Tucker Barnhart.
Then there was a defensive battle in the innings five through seven. Both teams did not score and the Cubs were losing 4-2 going into the 8th Inning.
In the 8th Inning the Cubs scored a home run. Wilson Contreras was the player who hit the home run. The Reds did not score in the 8th.
Coming into the 9th inning the Cubs were now down by one, and they needed a big play. They got it because they ended up getting four runs. The people who scored were Albert Almora, Munenori Kawasaki, Miguel Montero, and Matt Szczur. This was a huge momentum shift because the Reds, not only were unable to get another score, but the first three guys got out, back to back, to back!
The Cubs are becoming a very good team, and should go far this year.
When asked how the Cubs would do, Travis Hutson said, “World Series” so the Cubs fans have high expectations. They will go far.
