In the second, Marisnick opened with a solo home run to center field for a 1-0 Cubs lead. The Phillies tied the game at 1 in the third when Knapp launched a solo homer to right.

Chicago went ahead 2-1 in the bottom of the third when Baez hit an RBI double to deep center. Gregorius homered in the fourth and the Phillies equalized at 2.
