The Cubs continued to prove why they are the best team in baseball with another win over the second best Washington Nationals. John Lackey gave a stellar performance that included his 2,000th career strike out. His line of 7 innings, 6 hits, 2 earned runs, 1 walk, and 11 strikeouts gave the Cubs what they needed to bring the win home even after a a scary eighth inning where the Nats scored 4 runs. Along with Lackey's pitching, Ben Zorbrist continued his dominant offense with 2 hits, 3 runs, and 4 RBIs. Heyward, Rizzo, and Ross also got into the scoring column.

The Northsiders are now an amazing 16 games over 500! They will see the Nats two more times this week before welcoming the Padres to Chicago.
