The rout was on. And the disabled list.
All that in mind, it's tough to blame the Cubs for a bad first half. The 2013 second-round pick recorded two goals and one assist in 26 games with Washington.
But none of that matters because the playoffs is the start of a completely new season.
All is still not yet lost, but a Cardinals postseason path is precarious at best.
No vote this week on GOP health care bill
With the newly updated bill, four states: Alaska, Maine, Arizona and Kentucky , would receive more funding. Lindsey Graham , one of the bill's principal authors, had framed it as "federalism versus socialism".
And tonight will be an uphill battle for the Cubs. "I've learned a lot about this game from this guy, and I'm sure you guys have, too". His ERA and WHIP in Nationals Park are 3.00 and 1.167. "Here's to one h- of a (expletive) career", Lester said while toasting his buddy.
Lackey would shed no light on retirement talk, saying only, "Let me enjoy my night".
Michael Wacha (12-9) quashed the Cubs' offense for six scoreless innings, allowing only two hits and fanning eight on just 60 pitches. Either of those two teams could make a run to a championship, but one of them will definitely go home after a best-of-five series. Nunez, meanwhile, aggravated a right knee injury that had kept him out of Boston's previous 13 games. It was the 20th consecutive save for Neris. That's a good feeling. Jason Heyward and pinch hitter Tommy La Stella each added RBI doubles as seven straight Cubs reached base to start the inning. "It looked like they were dancing in a strange sort of way". "I'm just looking for something over the plate".
Wacha does not return. He had been giving me changeups all night.
Saudi Arabia wins plaudits for ending ban on women driving
Amnesty International said at the time that she had been denied access to a lawyer and had not been allowed to contact her family. Razan Al Azzouni, a Saudi fashion designer, welcomed the royal decree, saying that it will have a "huge impact" on her life.
A World Series hero a year ago, Russell said this hard-fought division title feels satisfying. In the second, the righty walked Jedd Gyorko to lead off the inning and gave up a single to Jose Martinez.
Lester had been miserable since the start of July, then went on the DL and has looked better since coming back. Chris Sale (17-7, 2.75 ERA) tries to push the Red Sox closer to an AL East title when he takes his major league-leading 300 strikeouts to the mound against Toronto. "But I don't think anything in the last month or so has (led to) a significant change in how we look at things".
Andrew is now known as Nacho Man. Cubs shortstop Addison Russell knocked a tray of nachos out of Andrew's hands as he flew into the seats after a foul ball. It appears Russell's leg kicks up into the nachos of the St. Louis Cardinals fan making a big mess. The Cubs have been there, done that. The Cardinals roster, over the course of a 162-game season, has some holes, has some redundancies, has some question marks - and has few exclamation points.
Avisail Garcia led off the 10th inning with a double into the left field corner against the Angels' Blake Parker (3-3).
Fed Needs To See Prices Rise Before Next Rate Hike
But Bostic stressed that this was not a statement as to whether the Fed should continue to raise short-term interest rates. In the other precious metals, the spot silver price rose $0.048 to $16.835-16.88 per oz.
