Chicago Cubs (82-57) @ Washington Nationals (69-71)

Kyle Hendricks (11-10, 3.77) vs. Stephen Strasburg (7-7, 4.09)

Opening game of four-gamer. Murphy leading off for Cubs in his 1st back at Nationals Park since being traded. Zobrist batting cleanup for Chicago. Hendricks aiming to win 3 straight starts for 1st time this season.

M1 — Murphy pops out in anticlimactic AB. Zobrist reaches 1B after Maddon challenges out call on grounder. Cubs fail to score, though.

T3 — Rizzo scores Baez (something that's happened a lot lately) on clutch 2-out hit. Baez coasts home from 1B on Rizzo double to RF.

T3 — Zobrist scores Rizzo on 2-out single. Strasburg (who seems rattled) then hits Bryant with pitch. 2-out rally for Cubs.

T5 — Zobrist with another RBI. Sac fly scores Murphy. Error on previous play helps Cubs out.

B5 — Turner comes through with RBI single. Lots of big 2-out hits in this one. Kind of surprising that Hendricks is still in game.

T8 — Cubs seriously threatening in 8th. Bryant leads off with single & then reaches 3B on Almora single. Almora reaches 2B on throw.

T8 — Win-lose situation for Cubs on next play. Contreras smacks grounder to SS. For some reason, Almora opts to run to 3B & gets thrown out trying to get back to 2B. Bryant comes in to score, though. Game tied.

T8 — Gore pinch running for Contreras as Cubs aim to get potential winning run in scoring position. Cubs have their very own Herb Washington, a designated pinch runner.

T8 — Mission accomplished for Cubs. Gore showcases his signature speed & steals 2B. He may look to steal 3B with 1 out now.

M8 — Pitching change pays off for Nats. Murphy fails to come up big against his old team by flying out to leave 2 runners stranded.

B8 — Quick reaction time by Zobrist in RF saves run. He gets to Soto double quickly & holds Harper at 3B. Nats still in good shape, though.

T10 — Bote plays the role of Nats killer yet again! Puts Cubs on top with double toward wall in right-center to score Almora, who doubled to RF corner in previous AB.

B10 — Chavez Ks Harper, who spews some colorful language after getting rung up on called strike three that he doesn't agree with.

F/10 — Chavez finished off game & leaves 2 Nats stranded. Impressive victory by Cubs. Wilson's clutch appearance in 8th serves as most critical performance of game. Bote kills Nats again with big hit.
