For the Cubs, 1) CF Fowler 2) 3B Bryant 3) 1B Rizzo 4) LF Soler 5) RF Zobrist 6) SS Russell 7) 2B Baez 8) C Montero 9) P Arrieta Montero is the 3rd starting catcher in 3 games in the series, 5th time a team has ever done that

Arrieta vs. Bumgarner is a dream pitching matchup, while the numbers Bumgarner has put up in the playoffs have been unbelievable. In his last 3 win-or-go-home games, he has pitched 23 innings without allowing a run!

Fowler leads off and flies a 1-1 pitch out to LF as Blanco gets some fielding action early. 1 OUT

Bryant up now. 1-2 pitch JUST inside for a ball, next pitch gets ripped down the left field line for a double.

Rizzo up, he's 3-for-16 lifetime against Bumgarner with 7 K's. He grounds one out to second, but Bryant moves up to 3rd base. 2 OUT

Soler strikes out on a curve and strands the runner at 3rd. 0-0 MID 1

Arrieta starts his night getting Span to strike out on a curveball. 1 OUT

Belt up next, but it's the same result. Another strike out for Arrieta. 2 OUT
