Addison Russell dropped to eighth for Game 3 on Monday

Scherzer manhandled the Cubs' offense early on, no-hitting Chicago through six innings on 78 pitches. Maybe it didn't happen because the suddenly offense-starved Nationals, who are hitting a sickly.121 as a team over the first three games of the series, have forgotten how to score runs.

"I knew I hit it pretty good", said Zimmerman, who has struggled mightily in recent years against the Cubs. With two outs and nobody on, Daniel Murphy lifted a fly ball to left fielder Kyle Schwarber. Cue the Benny Hill music. Murphy got to third, Schwarber got two errors, and Quintana got the hook.

The Nationals have a ton of scoring power, as they finished the regular season tied for the second highest slugging percentage in the league at.449, along with a.332 on base percentage. That's exactly what he did in the eighth inning of Game 2. It also ended Scherzer's night.

"Well, it was very hard, but we thought Max had had enough, especially coming off the injury, and Schwarber is a unsafe man, " Baker said. "We just hung in there". Our pitching held it tight there for us, pitching great all game. "We let them down the first game, obviously, and then for seven or so innings of this game, we didn't do much to help them, either".

Lefties only had a.119 batting average off of Edwards throughout the regular season. "Excitement?" Maddon said, offering two alternatives.

"Those big situations, I want to be up there". "Guys that should be heroes aren't and guys that you weren't counting on being heroes are". I'm a right-handed hitter. "We know we're going to have a close game".

As far as pitching matchups go, Tuesday's Game 4 tilt looks a touch lopsided.

Edwards Jr. had a 3-1 lead over the Nationals before he released a hanging curve ball on a 3-1 count to one of the most unsafe hitters in baseball, Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper. After issuing a walk to Tommy La Stella, Baker would make another choice-bringing in the lefty Óliver Pérez for Brandon Kintzler-to face Anthony Rizzo with two outs.

Trevor Bauer will start on three days' rest as the Indians try to eliminate the Yankees in Game 4 of their ALDS in NY. He did his job, and he did it well - to the extent that, having thrown just 96 pitches, he probably should have been left in a little longer. After Jon Jay bunted him over and Kris Bryant struck out, Rizzo dug in for the deciding at-bat.

Scherzer was stuck hanging on the railing during the first two games.

Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker answers questions after Game 3 of the National League Division Series baseball game against the Chicago Cubs Monday, Oct. 9, 2017, in Chicago. After Michael A. Taylor singled and advanced to second on a throwing error, Washington extended the inning when Zobrist, the Cubs' second baseman, booted a Bryce Harper ground ball. Oddly enough, Washington lost both of those games.

The Chicago Cubs host the Washington Nationals at Wrigley Field beginning at 3 p.m. Whatever Scherzer and catcher Matt Wieters said, Baker erred on the side of caution.

Then the Cubs would strike in the eighth.

Rendon gave Chicago its biggest break with his error after just seven in the field all season.

"Man, he blasted that ball a ton", Baker said.

Arrieta hasn't pitched in a game since he lasted just three innings in a loss at St. Louis on September 26. He had a 13-8 record along with a 4.33 earned-run average. "We are excited for the start that we had". "We still have to execute and focus". But going that route would be to ignore the very simple truth that, over the past couple of months, Strasburg has been Washington's best starting pitcher, not to mention the NL's best pitcher.
