It was also the second time in the series that a Nats starter held the Cubs hitless through five (Stephen Stasburg did it in Game 1). That May 2016 game against the Cubs righty, in which Roark allowed no earned runs in six innings but didn't factor into the decision, took place at Wrigley Field, about an hour north of where Roark grew up in Wilmington, Illinois.
"He was dominating us, there's no two ways about it", Rizzo said. He was followed up by Anthony Rizzo who stroked a double that made the game 2-0 and that turned out to be all the Cubs would need, even though they did eventually tack on an insurance run.
"Respect me!" he yelled as he walked toward the dugout. As Maddon said, there's no way you win that game without a great performance from your starter. I've just been an under-the-radar kind of guy. Wade Davis picked up his second save of the series to complete the game. For the Nationals, one loss from elimination, that could be a lifesaver. Washington manager Dusty Baker made the long walk to the mound, and after a lengthy discussion with Scherzer, he made a move to the pen, ending his right-hander's afternoon.
And yet, they still got the job done.
"We know that having our home crowd behind us at Wrigley (is important)", Zobrist said.
After being pushed back to Game 3 instead of starting the series or pitching Game 2 because of a hamstring "tweak", Scherzer is in a crucial spot. The reigning National League Cy Young Award victor struck out seven and walked one. The Cubs first baseman dropped a ball in between three Nationals players in shallow left-center field, scoring what proved to be the winning run.
Chicago won 2-1 at home Monday. His two errors on a fly ball to left field with two outs in the top of the sixth inning allowed Daniel Murphy to reach third base.
There is nothing more frustrating on earth than watching a lineup featuring Trea Turner, Bryce Harper, Anthony Rendon, Daniel Murphy, and Ryan Zimmerman get completely blanked by a guy who throws an 87 miles per hour fastball.
The Chicago Cubs have come into the playoffs as an underdog to win it all. His six innings of two-hit, one-run ball Saturday was fantastic. He compiled seven strikeouts - two on fastballs, two on change-ups, two on sliders and one on a cutter - against a lineup saturated with five left-handed hitters. He did a lot more than that, throwing 6 1/3 innings of no-hit ball and looking like you'd expect a two-time Cy Young Award victor at the peak of his career to look.
After Ketel Marte's first-inning bunt single, Darvish sent down 13 in a row before Descalso hit his second homer of the series.
Following a 2-1 victory on Monday that provided the Cubs with a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series, Arrieta has the chance to propel Chicago into a third straight NL Championship Series appearance. The great work by the bullpen gave Harper and Zimmerman the opportunity to make their home runs count.
"That's the mentality I take always with the base open", Rizzo said.
This season was worse, with a.143 ledger (4 for 28) and three RBIs in eight games against the Cubs.
Let's get this out of the way first - I'm a Cardinals fans and I wasn't rooting for the Cubs last year and I'm not rooting for them this year. Arrieta hasn't pitched since September 26, and he missed 2 1/2 weeks after straining the hamstring during a start on September 4. Yet, there is a plan that can be cobbled together to even this series Tuesday or Wednesday if it rains. Cubs Manager Joe Maddon said he still has confidence in Edwards Jr. and would put him back out there if a similar situation occurred later in the series.
