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.
Hugh Hefner dies at the Playboy mansion at age 91
In a lengthy caption she credited Hugh with helping her rise to fame, noting: "I am me because of you". And Hefner , who had been an aspiring cartoonist in his youth, also encouraged a new style of comedy.
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.
Puerto Rico requires relief and rebuilding
Among those who called him out, the mayor of San Juan, who said, "You don't put debt above people, you put people above debt". He said he may also stop in the US Virgin Islands during the Tuesday trip.
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).
Trump wants rule to stop National Football League players from kneeling during anthem
As it turns out, the official NFL Rulebook says nothing about the National Anthem , but another set of league guidelines does. At a rally in Alabama on Friday, Trump called for team owners to fire any "son of a b****" who "disrespects our flag".
