CHICAGO — Tabbing their 36th comeback victory of the season, the Chicago Cubs (67-48) came on strong late in their series-opening contest with the Washington Nationals (59-57) to win by a final score of 3-2. After going hitless at the plate through the first 5.2 innings, the Cubs pushed three runs across the rest of the way.

Although Cubs manager Joe Maddon was ejected in the seventh inning, after Chicago right fielder Jason Heyward tied the game on a two-run single with two outs in the sixth, the Cubs continued their surge after that. Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was walked three times on the afternoon, and one such walk came with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, providing Chicago with its winning run.
