Despite getting outstanding efforts from both Stephen Strasburg and Max Scherzer against the Cubs, the Nationals find themselves facing a two-games-to-one deficit in the National League Division Series presented by T-Mobile, their backs against the wall and their season on the line. The Cubs will be attempting to reach their third straight National League Championship Series and set off another Cody Bellinger Authentic Jersey raucous celebration at the Friendly Confines.
"You're playing the most important games of the year; you want to play in better weather," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said after a terrible forecast forced the postponement. "Whatever it is, you've just got to get ready and go ahead and do it. There is no crying. You just go play."
The Nationals will try to Corey Seager Authentic Jersey stave off elimination and force a decisive Game 5 on Thursday in Washington. Both teams have an identical 2.08 ERA in the series, but the Cubs have come up with the timely hits in Games 1 and 3.

"We've won two games in a row before; it's not a record," Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman said. "It's not an ideal situation to be in; obviously, I'd rather be up 2-1. It's playoff baseball. We'll come back out tomorrow, play a game, hopefully come out on top and go home and have an exciting Game 5."

As a team, the Nationals are slashing .121/.200/.231, while the Cubs have a slightly better .179/.274/.298 line.

Scherzer carried a Clayton Kershaw Authentic Jersey no-hitter into the seventh inning Monday night, but the Cubs answered with runs in the seventh and eighth to escape with a 2-1 victory in front of a raucous home crowd. Wrigley Field was alive and rocking, immediately evoking memories of last year's remarkable run.

The Cubs know that taking care of business sooner than later is important in October. Momentum can swing in crazy ways, much as it did in last year's World Series, when they overcame a 3-1 deficit against the Indians.
"I wouldn't use the word Justin Turner Authentic Jersey urgency," Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant said. "One game at a time, all that stuff, I still believe in that. I believe everybody here believes in that. We've got a good manager leading the way. It is nice to get the first win at home and use home-field advantage to your advantage. It would be nice [to clinch]. I can't wait to see Jake out there tomorrow. We know what he does in the postseason. It's going to be fun."

Jake Arrieta will make his eighth career postseason start, looking to lower his 3.64 ERA in those games. A free agent after the season, Arrieta hopes to help the Cubs extend this playoff run as long as possible, but he said Monday that he's making sure to soak it all in, just in case this winds up being his final start for Chicago.
