Game 1 at Atlanta
Spencer Strider entered the game with a 1.96 era in five starts but the Cubs tagged him for 6 runs in 3.2 innings to fall behind 6-3. The disaster wasn't all his fault, as during the first inning shortstop Orlando Arcia and left fielder Eddie Rosario collided in the first inning and we're lost for the rest of the game as the Cubs scored two runs in the play.
With everything going wrong for the Braves, they still almost rallied - finally falling short 8-7. Cubs lead 1 game to 0. Here are the scoresheets.
