Chicago Cubs Score and Recap (5/18/19): Cubs 2, Nationals 5 – Too Much Strasburg, Too Little Lester, Little Tap Dance Drama to End

This game was pretty much the Stephen Strasburg Show from start to (almost) finish, as the Nationals started dominated the Cubs for eight innings, allowing only a David Bote home run and a wild pitch/passed ball cross-up run en route to a 5-2 Nationals victory. I’d say the Cubs looked a little flat on offense after their 14-run performance last night, but sometimes you have to tip your cap to a good pitcher, and Strasburg is certainly that when healthy. In fact, the Cubs have seen this show before from Strasburg and are probably alright with a split of the Scherzer and Strasburg starts in this series.
