The Cubs only got two hits in last night’s 6-1 loss to Max Scherzer and the Nats.
Dusty Baker let Scherzer leave work a little early, after just 93 pitches and six innings. He was cruising but the Nationals had the lead that was to become the final score by then. Four relief pitchers combined to get the last nine outs, including two different guys in the ninth.
Kris Bryant gave Chicago a 1-0 lead with an RBI triple in the first inning. Jake Arrieta gave the lead up as quickly as he got it. Washington scored one against him in the first, another in the third, two in the fourth and another two in the fifth.
John Lackey will start the third game on Wednesday. He’s gone six innings and given up just a solo homer in each of his last two starts, one win and one loss.
Adam Lind will probably be in the lineup on Wednesday. He wears Lackey out in his career (18-for-43). The other guy on the roster who has hit him well in his career is Jayson Werth, who is still on the shelf.
Stephen Strasburg will try to get 18 outs for the first time since June 7 when he beat Clayton Kershaw. Strasburg has given up 13 earned runs in his last three starts, spanning 15.1 innings.
The walks aren’t really up, though. He’s only walked five in those three and he’s struck out 20. It’s not as if the stuff isn’t there, either. Maybe there isn’t anything more to read into here and he’s just had a rough few starts.
