Nationals at Cubs — Preview

Nationals at Cubs — Preview

The Nationals have a ton of scoring power, as they finished the regular season tied for the second highest slugging percentage in the league at.449, along with a.332 on base percentage. "Experience, yeah, is a great thing to have".

The Nationals were in serious danger of falling behind 2-0 in the series, entering the eighth trailing 3-1 after dropping Game 1 by a 3-0 score.

Starter Stephen Strasburg took a no-hitter into the sixth.

Given his free agent status when the season ends, Arrieta acknowledged Monday that his time with the Cubs may be drawing to a close. Not until he gets out there. "We just hung in there".

As Harper went to the plate, the Nationals were five outs away from a two-games-to-none deficit against the Cubs, the defending World Series champions and the hosts of the next two games. On the road, he had a 7-5 record with a 4.26 ERA while holding opponents to a.241 batting average. Hendricks was efficient early, throwing 13 pitches in the first inning, 17 in the second and 13 in the third. It's clearly the best series going by some distance.

Ray was 15-5 with a 2.89 ERA this season, and he was excellent against the Dodgers with a 3-0 record and a 2.27 ERA.

"He made a bad pitch and the guy didn't miss it, and that's it. Sometimes that happens". He was pulled from scoreless game after 96 pitches, a point he had surpassed in 23 of his 32 starts.

"Lighten the mood a little bit, " Maddon said of the breakfast spread. "It can wake up the fans". After Ben Zobrist flied out, Kris Bryant singled to right for the Cubs' first hit of the game. After taking a strike, Zimmerman pounced on a change-up over the plate, lifting high it high into the balmy air. "Why? Because the velocity is ticking up".

I hadn't really thought about it before The Score's Dan Bernstein had brought it up before the series kicked off. How our perceptions have changed about Dusty since he left. Anthony Rizzo called him "the best pitcher I've seen, probably", and with good reason. On a questionable try by Rendon, where he could have possibly let the ball go foul, he bobbled the ball allowing Baez to reach first base.

"I'm very confident as soon as I toe the rubber, I'm going to be good on pitch one", Scherzer said Sunday. "It's not a record". It's a mistake. We're human. I drive in runs, and that's just the mentality that I always take in.

Then the Cubs would strike in the eighth. Heyward covered distance equal to an $8 cab ride and made the catch that denied two runs. Quintana was traded from the White Sox to the Cubs in July and that trade sparked the Cubs to a strong second half and an eventual National League Central division title.

"He's got a clutch gene", the Nationals starting pitcher, Gio Gonzalez, said. A nearly-.400 pinch hitter in the regular season, the young outfielder came through with a game-tying single. I mean, that's 2016 (2014, 2012). Truth is, it's the ideal spot. After issuing a walk to Tommy La Stella, Baker would make another choice-bringing in the lefty Óliver Pérez for Brandon Kintzler-to face Anthony Rizzo with two outs.

If the Nationals lose to Chicago on Tuesday, it would mark the fourth time in four tries since moving to D.C. (and the fourth time in the past six years) that they've been bounced by a lower-seeded team in the NLDS.

Taylor led off the third with a single.

Scherzer struck out, Turner popped out. "I don't feel that anybody should be judged because they haven't done it. You look at their track record over all". "He does so much, having his hands on every single thing".

"When you come back and win a game late, that gives you more positive energy than crushing the team or at any other time".
