Nats Bite Cubs

25 Aug 2019

Stephen Strasburg and Cole Hamels allowed two earned runs each in a key NL battle between the Nationals and the Cubs. The game stayed scoreless through three but reached the Over when Kyle Schwarber tied the game in the bottom of the 8th with a two-run shot. In the 11th, the Nationals scored twice, completed the sweep with a 7-5 win, and opened up a 4-game lead in the NL WildCard chase.

Rookie LD (24) scored a rare Life Isn't Fair achievement with a GridCard win without a Qualifying Score. Miami's cover against Florida and Hawaii's upset of double-digit favorite Arizona kept GridCard scores low. The ProGrid Tour rolled over to the Second Game and triggered another Rake.
