Enhanced Box Score: Nationals 6, Cubs 5 – September 8, 2018

Chicago Cubs

Well, that was a mighty bad loss.

To have a 4-0 lead in the middle innings, with Cole Hamels on the mound and a fully-rested meaty part of the bullpen behind him, the Cubs should win that game 10 times out of 10. But Hamels couldn’t quite hold the Nationals down, and then Steve Cishek and Justin Wilson couldn’t the Cubs’ then-thin lead. Right guys in the right spots, wrong outcome. Bryce Harper, man. That guy.

When you consider how the Cubs chose to line up the day for the doubleheader, it stings all the more to see them blow a big lead. Bad, bad loss.
