Cubs vs Nationals Game 2: Five-run eighth gives Nats stunning win

Cubs vs Nationals Game 2: Five-run eighth gives Nats stunning win”

"Mr. Walk-off is sitting next to me", Harper said of Zimmerman, who has 10 career walk-off homers.

The World Series champion Cubs wasted another solid playoff performance by Jon Lester and homers for Anthony Rizzo and Willson Contreras. Get the app and get the game.

Harper flipped his bat after his two-run homer off righty Carl Edwards, Jr. tied the game at 3. "He made a bad pitch and the guy didn't miss it". With one out and a runner on first, the wiry right-hander fell behind 3-1 against Harper and the 2015 NL MVP drove his next pitch into the second deck in right field.

"We've given up way bigger home runs than that before", Rizzo said.

Lester allowed one run and two hits in six innings in his 20th career postseason start. "Baseball is contagious when you are going well". "We all know, obviously, they can hit the ball out of the ballpark at a high rate".

After a scoreless seventh from Pedro Strop, though. the Cubs' bullpen imploded in the eighth.

Sean Doolittle pitched the ninth for the Nationals to get his first postseason save. The ball was caught by a Cubs fan but ultimately reviewed and ruled to be not be fan interference.

Oliver Perez (1-0) got the win as he got the last two outs in the top of the eighth on another double-play grounder.

"C.J. was the right man for the job", Maddon said. "I'm not going to let that prevent me from doing what makes me happy". The score would stay that way until the eighth inning.

Security plans include a thousand officers in place for the marathon as well as what Chicago police call "saturation teams" and special operations units at both Wrigley Field and Soldier Field. The Cubs will have Jose Quintana on the mound and the Nationals counter with two-time Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer, who was pushed back in the rotation because of an injured right hamstring. He has never faced Washington. And thus, help the Nationals tie the NLDS at one game apiece. Washington 2B Daniel Murphy (1-for-4) has reached base in 21 games in row in the postseason.
