Enhanced Box Score: Nationals 6, Cubs 5 – August 1, 2021

Chicago Cubs

Rafael Ortega tried his dangedest to singlehandedly keep bringing the Cubs back in this one, but unfortunately the Nationals got to bat last.

That means Manny Rodriguez was out there – 9th inning guy already! – and he got got:

Adbert Alzolay was kinda all over the place with his command, sometimes breaking out a beautiful changeup (need that against lefties!) and sometimes just hanging pitches up and out over the plate. You know the drill with him. It’s a process.

Full box score.
