Dave Martinez, former Rays coach now to manage the Nationals and will likely face his mentor Joe Maddon in the playoffs.
Almost five hours after it began the Chicago Cubs had beaten the Washington Nationals 9-8 in front of a standing room only crowd of 42,000 fans on a cool, wet night in Washington. It was a strange game that was hard for both teams to explain but in the end, Chicago will fly to Los Angeles to face the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series.
Moments after his go-ahead hit, Anthony Rizzo walked across the infield at frenzied Wrigley Field and shouted “Respect me! Respect me!”
Cubs manager Joe Maddon added some off-day intrigue to the National League Division Series by hinting he might play musical chairs with his lineup against Washington right-hander Max Scherzer for their pivotal Game 3.
Things were looking bleak for Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman and the rest of the Washington Nationals. They had accumulated one run and four hits through the first 16 innings of their NL Division Series against the Chicago Cubs

Make no mistake about it the Marlins were happy to get 2-1 win over the first place Nationals. They did not get their first two hits until the eighth inning, but that is all they needed to get the victory. The Washington Nationals star pitcher Max Scherzer's bid for the third no-hitter of his big league career ended with one out in the eighth inning. The no-hitter bid went by the wayside as backup catcher A.J. Ellis reached on an infield single, as Scherzer redirected the ball to short but Trea Turner could not make the play and Miami gets their first hit. Then that was followed by an error by first baseman Adam Lind and a hit batter loaded the bases with two outs.
Gio Gonzalez had some worrisome moments on the mound Tuesday night, including when a friend sitting in the first row behind the Washington Nationals' dugout was hit in the head by a flying bat. "Next time in the front row everyone will be wearing a helmet," Gonzalez said. The friend later said he was fine, and Gonzalez felt good too after pitching seven innings to beat the Miami Marlins 12-3.
The celebratory shaving cream in Marcell Ozuna's ears provided a clue: This time it was the Miami Marlins with the walk-off hit. After blowing leads and losing on the final pitch in back-to-back weekend games, the Marlins overcame an early six-run deficit Monday night, and Ozuna singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning to beat the Washington Nationals 8-7.
Brandon Phillips thought it was "epic" to get the Braves' game-winning hit for the second straight day. Having his dad in the stands on Father's Day added to the thrill. Phillips punched a ninth-inning single through a stacked infield to drive in Johan Camargo from third base and give Atlanta a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday. Phillips also delivered the decisive run-scoring single in the 10th that gave Atlanta an 8-7 victory over Miami on Saturday.
