B2 — Javy hustles for an IF single. Amazing how many players have beat out throws at 1B less than 2 innings in. Javy kind of jams his knee when reaching 1B but shakes it off.

T3 — Another close call at 1B. Double play broken up by Soto hustling to beat out a throw. RBI fielder's choice. Rizzo also got pulled off the bag on the throw, which helped Soto's cause.

E4 — Happ gets rung up on a pitch that seems to have just missed the outside edge of the plate. He then gets thrown out for arguing the call. Bases left juiced. Really short fuse by the home-plate umpire.

E5 — Really deflating end to the 5th for the Cubs. Javy swings at to bad pitches, including one that would've been ball four. After Javy strikes out, Schwarber pops up on the IF. Inning over. 2 RISP left stranded.

E6 — Yet another deflating ending to the inning. Kyle Ryan (a pitcher) attempts to take 3B on a pitch that gets away from the catcher, but he's gunned down. Inning over. Castellanos was at the plate w/ 2 men on.

T7 — Strike him out, throw him out situation. Lucroy fires a throw to Kemp on the K, Kemp applies the tag. Have to applaud the Nats for how ruthless they've been on the basepaths in this series.

T8 — Yet another spectacular play by Kemp. He covers a lot of ground in a hurry on another diving stop. The only true positive of this game for the Cubs has been Kemp's defense.

M9 — Strop struggles out of the gate but ends up limiting the Nats to 1 run in the 9th. At least he gets through it. Cubs down to their final 3 outs.
