I can't believe I was just doing this watercolor!
The Cubs just beat the Nats 3-2 when Addison Russell hit a game-winning double in the bottom of the 9th with Herrerra on 1st.
This was such a great game - amazing pitching on both sides with Kyle Hendricks giving up 4 hits and 1 run in 7 and Jordan Zimmerman matching that but giving up 6 hits.
The Cubs D was outstanding.
Russell and Castro were both brilliant, Bryant made a bare handed play at 3rd, and speaking of D, Hendricks had a 10 pitch at bat vs Zimmerman that led to a walk (if that ain't great D I don't know what is).
Kris Bryant hit one out that they're still arguing about - did it go over the scoreboard?
He massacred it.
And last but not least, Yunel Escobar was picked off 1st in the 1st, and then, at 2nd base with 2 out in the top of the 9th inexplicably ran to third, Hector Rondon turned around and threw him out.
What a bonehead!
But what a great W for the Cubs.
Jon Lester vs Max Sherzer tomorrow night.
This is such an AWESOME SERIES GO CUBS!
