Editor's column Cubs nearing decisions as they prepare for NLDS

"If you were born and raised there you know everybody". The Nationals will put their faith behind right-handed pitcher Max Scherzer in Game 3, while the Cubs will answer with Jose Quintana.

What started as another possible pitchers' duel between the Cubs' John Lester and the Nationals' Gio Gonzalez turned into a home run-centric NLDS Game 2 for the Cubs and Nationals before too long, ending in a pile of home runs at the end of the game that propelled Washington to a 6-3 win. "You've seen 'em the last five or six years". The Cubs will have Jose Quintana on the mound and the Nationals counter with two-time Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer, who was pushed back in the rotation because of an injured right hamstring. He was 0-3 with a 5.03 ERA in four starts against the Diamondbacks overall. "So 1-1 is obviously a lot more manageable". You have to kind of do the little things right and take advantage of the breaks you get, like they did. The Cubs host the Nats for Game 3 on Monday.

"That's playoff baseball", first baseman Ryan Zimmerman said.

He also is well aware of baseball's lack of diversity among managers, with only three non-white managers in the majors. "Slumps are contagious. So is hitting". This is a player who made just 7 errors in 145 games at the "Hot Corner" and sported a fielding percentage of.979 during the regular season. Then he flipped his hair on his way back to rejoin his teammates after his fifth homer in 16 career postseason games.

"That was the pitch I wanted to throw the last time", Edwards said. Next three were heaters up in the zone.

"As soon as it left my hand, I had an idea it wasn't going down". Plus, I think he has been swinging the bat better as of late. "It bounced right in front of my glove and I just didn't come up with it". Daniel Murphy singled off Montgomery who eventually sent an 0-1 changeup that Zimmerman got into the wind blowing out in left.

"It couldn't have happened to a finer guy", Baker said. Bryce is coming on strong.

"I love you, Pop", Harper told his dad as he gave him a giant bear hug. The fans were psyched. Even the "old man" of the core group, Anthony Rizzo, is only 28 and signed until 2020. "That's why Harp's homer was so important".

The Nationals were shut out in Game 1 of this series on Friday, and Lester fired six stout innings on Saturday, allowing only one run, a solo homer by Rendon.

Asked about his favorite all-time homer, Harper ignored his own and said, "Zim's ranks No. 1 for me". "We're a great team". Then Bryce Harper hit a mammoth shot to right, tying the game up at three. But they acknowledged the sixth inning and offensive struggles contributed to them falling behind in the best-of-five series. When the ball barely breached the fence in left-center field, just over the outstretched glove of Ben Zobrist, the place came unglued, with just three outs from closer Sean Doolittle left to vanquish the Cubs.

Notes: Baker said Scherzer had a good bullpen session on Friday.
