Former NC State shortstop Trea Turner and the Washington Nationals fell to the Cubs in Game 1 of the National League Divisional Seris last night.
Turner was 0-4 with two strikeouts, but he wasn’t alone in the struggle. Chicago held the Nationals to two measley hits. Cubs Pitcher Kyle Hendricks was stellar, tossing 7 shutout innings, while picking up 6 strikeouts. Anthony Rizzo (2) and Kris Bryant (1) knocked in the runs for Chicago.
Game 2 between the Nationals and the Cubs is tonight at 5:30 in Washington.
