G2. Washington at Chicago

Strat replay NLCS. Washington now up 2-0 .

Anthony Rendon had 2 base hits and 2 RBI as the Washington Nationals defeated the Chicago (NL) Cubs by the score of 4 to 3 at Wrigley Field. Washington tallied 3 runs in the 7th inning when they had 3 base hits. The biggest moment was provided by Daniel Murphy who quieted the crowd when he lined a base-hit scoring two baserunners. Chicago (NL) made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across. The victory was credited to Matt Albers(3-0) who went 2/3 of an inning, allowing no runs. Albers was helped out by Sean Doolittle who recorded his 2nd save. Pedro Strop(1-1) was charged with the loss in relief. He pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up 1 hit and 1 walk.
