Chicago Cubs at Washington Nationals Preview


The Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs meet one more time in the National League Division Series. 

The Nationals forced a deciding game back home after blanking the defending World Series champions 5-0 at Wrigley Field on Wednesday. Michael Taylor hit a grand slam while starter Stephen Strasburg was solid on the mound to lead the NL East champions. Strasburg, who was inserted to the line-up to replace Tanner Roark after Game 4 was postponed due to heavy rains, struck out 12 and gave up three hits in seven innings to earn the win.

Chicago's first two pitchers, Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester, did a great job but the succeeding relievers faltered. NL MVP Kris Bryant and Game 3 hero Anthony Rizzo both failed to register a hit.

Gio Gonzalez will try to complete Washington's mission when he starts in the decider. The veteran lefty did not earn a decision in their 6-3 win in Game 2 where he struck out six and gave up three hits and three runs in five innings.

Game 1 winning pitcher Kyle Hendricks (1-0) will start for the Cubs. The 27-year-old right-hander struck out six and gave up two hits in seven innings.

The winner of this game will proceed to the NL Championship Series to face the Los Angeles Dodgers. Major League Baseball's top team earlier advanced after sweeping the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NLDS. We are backing the Cubs to bounce back in this game and return to the NLDS.
