Cubs' Hendricks to start Game 1 of NLDS against Nationals

  Cubs' Hendricks to start Game 1 of NLDS against Nationals Kyle Hendricks tops out at about 88 mph. He looks and talks more like a college professor than a professional baseball player. He is among the most anonymous players on the star-studded Chicago Cubs. He also is the Game 1 starter for the defending World Series champions.Hendricks gets the ball Friday night when Chicago visits the Washington Nationals for the opener of their NL Division Series. He also started its previous postseason game, helping the Cubs win in Cleveland in Game 7 for their first championship since 1908."Excited to get out there," Hendricks said Wednesday.

Long after the 2017 NLDS is over, Game 5 may be remembered for a missed call that swung the game in favor of the Chicago Cubs . CONTROVERSY: Baez reaches on strikeout /passed ball. As mentioned above, this was the biggest play of the inning.

Intentional or not, Javier Baez's backswing has sparked quite a bit of controversy in an already intense NLDS Game 5.© Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Intentional or not, Javier Baez's backswing has sparked quite a bit of controversy in an already intense NLDS Game 5.

The Chicago Cubs turned around Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday night against the Washington Nationals with a four-run inning in the fifth that was aided by a blown call.

Max Scherzer came in to pitch the top of the fifth for Washington with his team leading 4-3. He got two outs and then allowed an infield single, single, and then a 2-run double to give Chicago a 5-4 lead. After falling behind Jason Heyward, Scherzer intentionally walked him to bring up Javy Baez with runners on first and second with two out. That’s where things got really weird.

  Rep. Scalise, shot during Congress baseball practice, throws 1st pitch in D.C. The National League Division Series began with a powerful moment in the nation's capital. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) - who was shot while practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game in June - threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Friday's series opener between the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs at Nationals Park.

Baez struck out, but he reached on a dropped third strike/passed ball. As if that weren’t bad enough for Washington, Matt Wieters threw the passed ball into right field, allowing another run to score to make it 6-4. A catcher’s interference and hit by pitch allowed another run to score to make it 7-4.

The issue is that on the pitch where he struck out, Baez hit Wieters with his backswing.

MLB rules say that the ball should have been ruled dead and no runners should have advanced due to Baez’s interference.

If no runners should have advanced and the ball should have been dead, it seems like Baez should have been out for striking out and the inning would have ended with the score 5-4. Instead, two more runs scored.
