A much more pleasant day at Wrigley for the series finale, but the Diamondbacks were unable to deliver an equally pleasant result, dropping the rubber game in a contest which was a pitcher’s duel until the ninth. Robbie Ray allowed just theone run over six innings, on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Yoan Lopez and Andrew Chafin followed Ray up with scoreless innings. But the D-backs were even more stymied by Tyler Chatwood who threw six scoreless frames of two hit ball. Arizona finally got on the board when Jarrod Dyson homered with one out on the ninth, tying up the game, and you wondered whether this might be another come-from-behind with for the Diamondbacks.
However, Archie Bradley let the Cubs walk it off in the bottom of the ninth without retiring a batter. He allowed a lead-off double, who advanced to third on an error by Adam Jones, then hit the next batter, and finally an RBI single to end the game. Preston will be along with a more detailed breakdown in a bit.
