Cubs lose Game 3 by a score of 8-4 to the Nationals as they're back to .500 at 39-39. John Lackey gave up 6 early runs and the Nationals never really looked back. John's final line was 5.1 IP as he allowed 9 hits and 8 ER. The Cubs tried fighting back though as @willsoncontreras40 hit a 2-run HR in the 4th and it was even a 6-3 game at a point after @albertalmorajr scored in the 5th off of a fielding error. The 4th run came via a solo 💣from @arizz_44 for his 18th homer of the year as it went into the 2nd deck in right center field. Some big news in the game too is that @kris_bryant17 got injured in the bottom of the 5th as he rolled his ankle on 3rd base while catching a pop fly. However, Kris wasn't able to put much, if any, weight on his foot after the play, so let's hope he's okay. To be honest, the Cubs have had a rough go of it so far this year with injuries, a mediocre record, and disappointments. However, there's still a TON of baseball left and I feel like this team is ready to go on a post All-Star Break run once we get healthy again. Some good news is that the Brewers are trailing the Reds right now by a score of 4-3 in the bottom of the 8th, so let's hope the Reds hold on and keep us only 1 GB to the first spot in the N.L. Central! In addition, the Cubs can still split this 4 game series tomorrow as they have ace, Jon Lester on the bump tomorrow afternoon at 3:05 CT! Let's bounce back with a win tomorrow and split the series before we head to Cincinnati for the weekend!
