Cubs vs. Nationals: Game 2 Thread

Chicago Cubs (83-57) @ Washington Nationals (69-72)

Jaime Garcia (3-6, 5.93) vs. Max Scherzer (16-6, 2.28)

Make-up game of last night's ill-fated contest that was delayed then postponed due to rain. New starters on the hill from the original game two. Veteran Garcia making his first start as a Cub. Second game of doubleheader coming soon after this one ends tonight.

T1 — La Stella's clearly ready to go after all that rain. 1-out double smacked down 1B line. He's now at 3B with 2 outs.

B1 — Kintzler facing his old club far earlier in game than he probably expected. Happ tries to lay out for diving catch but can only trap Wieters single. Nats lead by 3.

B1 || Cubs 0, Nationals 3

Got to question why Garcia was pulled so soon. The whole point of giving him this spot start (one would think) was so that he could get some quality innings under his belt & give the bullpen a breather at the back end of a long road trip with no off days. With all the turmoil from the rain, it would've been logical to give the newly acquired veteran a chance to get in a groove in a game of this nature.

B2 — La Stella makes good play after slipping on wet dirt. Guns throw across to outstretched Rizzo on grounder for impressive out.

Smart of Maddon to insert De La Rosa into game. Similar to Garcia in the fact that's it a former regular starter who can now offer balance in a game like this. De La Rosa might pitch several innings should he avoid getting shellacked.

E5 — Critical mound visit pays off as De La Rosa forces big DP after it. Cubs still within shouting distance as Nats strand 2.

M6 — La Stella fails to come up with big hit, as he grounds into inning-ending DP. Cubs have yet to get to Scherzer.

B6 — La Stella makes up for his DP groundout with another amazing play at 3B. Charges softly hit grounder & guns throw to Rizzo for out.

B6 — Multiple defensive mistakes by Cubs in this inning. Contreras makes bad throw to 3B on potential force out, & Rizzo drops popup in shallow RF. Also, pitch slips out of Norwood's hand & brings runner home.

B6 || Cubs 0, Nationals 6

B6 — Now, Murphy joins the fray of bad defense. Horrible throw home in attempt at throwing out runner trying to score from 3B on grounder.

B7 — Chatwood struggling in 7th as rain starts to fall again. Hopefully, rain will let up enough to let the 2nd game take place.

F — Scherzer pitches complete game. Nats benefit from dreadful pitching/defensive performance by Cubs. Definitely a game to forget for Chicago. Second game of doubleheader could be impacted by rain.
