Game 2. Cubs at Nationals

The Washington Nationals nipped the Chicago (NL) Cubs 3 to 2 at Nationals Park
in a hard fought contest.

Washington scored 2 runs in the decisive bottom of the 4th inning. Chicago
(NL) tried unsuccessfully to come back in the 9th.

Tanner Roark(4-0) got the win allowing 1 run in 7 innings. Mark Melancon was
credited with his 3rd save. Jake Arrieta(2-2) was charged with the loss.

Joe Maddon was subdued after the ballgame, ‘That one really hurts. If our
guys had simply played more fundamentally sound, we could have won that one.
That is what really ticks me off!’
