Nationals vs. Cubs, NLDS Game 3

Who made the Cubs' NLDS roster who didn't and why

NY capped a 1-0 victory around 11 p.m. EDT, setting up an afternoon game.

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. Maddon referred to Scherzer as "oppressively difficult" against right-handed hitters.

In Game 2, we saw a combined four home runs after zero in Game 1. It also ended Scherzer's night. "We just hung in there". "We pull on the same rope every day".

Gio Gonzalez wasn't as dominant as Stephen Strasburg was in Game 2, but he did not fail to keep the Nationals within striking distance. Ryan Zimmerman's three-run homer followed not long afterward to provide a lead. But that first surrendered hit, a double by Ben Zobrist, was enough to get him the hook from Nationals manager Dusty Baker. "[Edwards Jr.] was the right man for the job", Cubs Manager Joe Maddon said, according to a Saturday Bleacher Report. "You're prepared. I'm ready for that situation and I know what's going on". "There are a lot of guys that are pitching hurt right now, you know". "I can not be happier than I am with our group right now". But, this will be his postseason debut, so it is an unknown as to how we will do. He then took third base on a wild pitch, belly flopping to the bag without a throw.

Gary Sanchez homered and Judge laced an early two-run double for his only hit of the series to go with 12 strikeouts in 15 at-bats. The 17-game victor pitched into the seventh of a 4-0 Game 1 victory, and manager Terry Francona should have virtually his entire bullpen available if needed.

After Leonys Martin scored, Rizzo was caught between first and second to end the inning.

Starting pitching delivered in the first two games, but the bullpen have not been performing to their abilities. Edwards Jr. also leads the Cubs in slugging percentage against lefties, with teams hitting.193 against him this season-much better than the next two in line with Mike Montgomery's.333 and Brian Duensing's.381 average. Guys had a little bounce in their step today.

The good news is that Scherzer feels comfortable throwing 100 pitches if needed. After Jon Jay bunted him over and Kris Bryant struck out, Rizzo dug in for the deciding at-bat.

It was the first extra-base hit for Harper since he returned from the disabled list during the last week of September after missing 42 games with an injured left knee.

Both Quintana and Scherzer-effectively keeping pace with each other-pitched well through six innings, limiting the damage of a few of defensive miscues.

The Chicago Cubs won Game 3 of the National League division series, 2-1. A Cubs fan deflected a catchable foul ball, a shortstop made an error, a bunch of Marlins got hits - the warmed-over details are well-known here. After the Nationals lost by one run to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fifth game of their division series, Baker watched the World Series as a neutral observer.

In the back of his mind, though, Arrieta understands the Tuesday start could represent the final time he takes center stage for the home team at Wrigley Field. Said Baker: "That was critical". "We want to win the whole thing".

Then the Cubs would strike in the eighth. 2003-2010 seems like one constant season to me, where the offseason was just as onerous and important as the season itself. His teammates in the dugout reacted immediately, screaming and raising fists as the ball tore through the night air.

The starting pitching has been an asset for the Cubs so far, but they need to score more runs so the game isn't so heavily reliant on pitching.
