In Sunday’s critical Cubs win – it was an elimination game, so there can be no exaggeration – after falling behind early, the Cubs scored multiple runs in the 4th inning to take the lead. That scoring started with a Kris Bryant solo homer.
Tonight, the Cubs scored multiple runs in the 1st inning to take the lead, and it once again started with a Bryant solo homer:

Talk about an oopsie of a curveball on an 0-2 pitch. Pretty clear that Bryant was looking for exactly that pitch, and Tomlin missed his spot by a mile.
Well, maybe not a mile, but it was enough of a miss to send that ball nearly a mile:
