NLDS Nationals confident that this year will be different
The Cubs bought two veterans, Jon Lester for $25 million a year and John Lackey for $16 million a year, and also found a pitching coach in Chris Bosio with the ability to develop pitchers, ala former Cards' pitching coach Dave Duncan.
Rizzo made it 2-0 when he lined another single to right field past Harper's diving attempt. Zimmerman (2-for-4) then lofted a three-run homer just over the fence in left to give Washington a 6-3 lead.
The Chicago Marathon is Sunday, the Bears host the Vikings at Soldier Field on Monday night, and the Cubs-Nationals series heads to Wrigley Field on Monday as well.
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.
"I can't really speak to what's gone on before I got here in July, years ago, or in the beginning of this season", Doolittle said. "I left it up".
"I want it right back, the same situation", Edwards said after the loss.
"I've kind of been dealing with this stuff all year", Scherzer said.
If you're going to watch only one game, tune in for: Cubs-Nationals. "That was the right option". Even though Zimmerman's shot was technically the game-winner, it was Harper's heroics that really seemed to get the Nats off the schneid. "CJ's numbers against left-handed hitters are among the best in all of baseball".
Monday night, Quintana will go head-to-head with Nats ace Max Scherzer, which is usually a daunting task in itself.
Baker had said Tuesday that the plan was for Scherzer to test his leg in the bullpen Wednesday; on Thursday, Baker again said Scherzer would have a bullpen session. The Cubs offense has combined for six runs in this series, but the lack of scoring hasn't mattered much until Carl Edwards Jr. got rocked late in game two.
To ensure adequate security for Cubs fans, metal detectors are in place at Wrigley Field. He has faced Lester only nine times and is 1-for-7 with five strikeouts and a home run (0-for-5 with four K's this year). They weathered it and won.
"We talk about during the season, during the 162, it's a marathon", Rizzo said. "I don't know if that had anything to do with it, but it was a bit of a downer, and we hope that things subside and work themselves out". "We've given up way bigger home runs than that before". It's part of the journey. I've gotten pretty good about feeling if the release point is different.
The Nationals will counter with their own lefty, Gio Gonzalez, who had a solid 15-9 record and a respectable 2.96 ERA.
Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo may have brought in the teams' only runs with their deadly bats, but this game would not have been close if not for Kyle Hendricks.
Harper was injured at home August 12 when he slipped on a wet first base while running out a grounder.
"Even though the whole muscle itself is strong, there is a rotational aspect to this that we were able to identify the weakness", Scherzer said.
Outfielder Joc Pederson and utility player Tim Locastro didn't make the lineup announced by Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts on Friday before Game 1 at Dodger Stadium.
Monday's victor, of course, can end it Tuesday when, tentatively, Tanner Roark (13-11, 4.67) goes for Washington against Chicago's Jake Arrieta (14-10, 3.53).
