Cubs win on grand slam in 9th

The Cubs now have a three game lead in the division.

It was quite a turn after the Cubs got shut down for most of the night.

The Nationals managed just three hits but looked as though they were on their way with Scherzer tossing three-hit ball over seven scoreless innings.

An estimated 720 people died in June and July when charity ships were mainly absent, Amnesty International estimates. That is despite overall Mediterranean arrivals having dropped sharply since peaking at around 1 million in 2015.

Hamels was about as good, giving up just one run and one hit in seven innings. Zimmerman then scored on a sacrifice fly by Mark Reynolds. If the Nationals fail to make an epic comeback, then it may also mark the end of an era in which the team failed to win a title despite a roster that included a former NL MVP in Bryce Harper and a two-time Cy Young victor in Scherzer.

A pennant race has no official starting date, but this week's two-game mini-series at Wrigley Field between the Cubs and Brewers seems like a logical place to kick things off. Back-to-back walks to Juan Soto and Bryce Harper - the second being intentional - loaded the bases for Zimmerman, who then chased Kintzler with an RBI single. In stepped David Bote, as a pinch-hitter with two outs, and he eventually found himself in a 2-2 count.

Making the most of his pinch-hitting appearance, Bote jacked his third career home run on what assuredly marked the most memorable hit of his baseball life up to that point. That was nary a worry, however, as he blasted a stunning walk-off grand slam to give the Cubs the 4-3 victory.
