Cubs Wont Protest Loss To Nationals

  • Kris Bryant slugs three late homers as Cubs pound Nationals

"And it was kind of exhausted".

Maddon reportedly went so far as to say the team was aware beforehand of Doolittle's toe-tap, which would explain why Maddon jumped in after the first pitch.

Toe-taps that were similar to what Doolittle appeared to have used have been considered illegal in the past.

"Listen, I have no issue with that whatsoever", Maddon said. "But the point was, I would not be a good parent had I not spoken up for my guy". You can't do that.

"The boys are swinging the bat well", Nationals manager Dave Martinez said.

The Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs were headed for a quick and tidy 5-2 Nats win on Saturday.

"I saw the ball hit and it didn't even hit the plate, it hit behind the plate", Cano said.

Doolittle, who retired the side in order, thought Maddon had a different motive. He knew it was rare to see Hellickson struggle this much this early in a game, giving up three walks and a hit batter in four of his first five batters faced. Doolittle switched to a delivery without any stops - one he often uses - after the protest as a way to show Maddon he didn't need the tweak to be successful.

Holbrook told the Washington Post's Jesse Dougherty after the game that tapping your foot during your delivery is not illegal "in itself", and that Doolittle's motion was different than Edwards'. "So, in our judgement, Doolittle did nothing illegal at all".

The congenial Doolittle was steamed postgame Saturday and remained irritated Sunday. "And they faced a guy that came in here pitching really, really well and we were able to knock him out of the game".

MIAMI - Sandy Alcantara needed just 89 pitches to throw a two-hitter in a duel with Noah Syndergaard, and the lowly Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-0 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.

The Nationals, who now sit 7 games back in the East, have hit the ball well in the first two games of this series with double digit hits each game.

David Bote homered in the sixth to pull the Cubs, who have lost three of four, within 5-2.

He also had a bunt single to set up the first run, and made a nifty behind-the-back grab of J.D. Davis' one-hopper in the first inning. Lester has not given up an earned run in four of his last five starts. Javier Baez extended the majors' longest hitting streak to 15 games.

The Nats put one up in the second on a solo home run from Brian Dozier. Batting-wise, Chicago has the edge in on-base percentage (.347 to.314), slugging percentage (.455 to.402), runs scored (230 to 196), hits (372 to 359), doubles (76 to 65) and home runs (67 to 56).

Stephen Strasburg had thrown eight innings with just four hits allowed. Heyward came around to score on a passed ball and the Cubs were now trailing 4-1. "Almost too good. Just couldn't repeat my mechanics, couldn't repeat pitches".

Meanwhile, the always forthright Doolittle was in peak form in the Nationals clubhouse, accusing Maddon of trying to game the system.

With the Cubs up 3-2 in the seventh inning, Bryant hit a two-run blast into the Cubs' bullpen off Justin Miller. He is 1-1 with a 2.23 ERA in six career starts against the Cubs. He's 2-2 with a 4.25 ERA in seven career starts against the Nationals.

The National League Central meets the National League East on Saturday evening and we will see the Chicago Cubs grapple with the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington.

Rizzo's solo homer in the third gave the Cubs a 3-0 lead, and Chicago went up 4-0 in the fourth on Kyle Schwarber's sacrifice fly.
