Nationals' Scherzer has no-hitter through 6 vs Cubs

Share

Arrieta missed 2 1/2 weeks with a right hamstring injury, but said after throwing two bullpen sessions, the injury would be a "non-issue.".

Given his free agent status when the season ends, Arrieta acknowledged Monday that his time with the Cubs may be drawing to a close.

On the other side, Cubs Manager Joe Maddon said the club would stick with Tuesday starter Jake Arrieta if the game is bumped back. Going back to the regular season, he is 5-2 with a microscopic 0.74 ERA and 73 Ks in 60 2/3 innings over his last nine starts. But the 33-year-old also left his final start of the year after just 3.1 innings with a hamstring problem, and that could play a major role in who wins Game 3.

Scherzer has thrown six innings in which he's done really, really well.

Moving the match to Wednesday could play into Washington's favour with the option to bypass Tanner Roark as tonight's starter, and start with Stephen Strasburg on normal rest. This season, the contact wasn't always weak and he gave up more hits.

The Nationals had a base open with Rizzo coming to the plate and pinch runner Leonys Martin on second, but manager Dusty Baker elected to pitch to the slugger with Willson Conteras on-deck. But the two-time Cy Young Award victor showed no signs of any issues in his 15th career playoff game.

He plans to make the most of every opportunity, starting Tuesday. Roark will be available in relief. "It's on our World Series ring, that doesn't change".

Before that, Carl Edwards Jr had his own resiliency in a critical moment in the 8th inning. But that's one big offensive inning with a whole lot of bad preceding it. In fact, their lack of hitting indicates they were actually somewhat lucky to earn a split.

"The process would start between [pitching coach] Mike Maddux and myself, and then we talk to Strasburg if we were serious about it", Baker said. There wasn't a soul in this clubhouse who believed we were going to lose this game.

After their day off on Sunday, these two teams will start anew with a best-of-three series featuring two in Chicago and one, if necessary, back at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The Cubs will send Quintana, Arrieta, and Hendricks to the mound while the Nats counter with Scherzer, one more guaranteed game from Strasburg, and a now undetermined third starter. If the NLDS between the Nationals and Cubs goes the distance, the victor will have to play four times in five days.
