Cubs get physical with Nationals, can't avoid sweep
WASHINGTON – The Cubs finally put up a fight in Washington. Not the kind that could make much difference on the scoreboard, though.
Adam LaRoche added to his home run tear with a two-run shot, and the Nationals beat the struggling Cubs, 9-2, in a fight-filled game Thursday night to finish a lopsided four-game sweep.
The Cubs (51-86) have lost 17 of their last 18 road games and six in a row overall. They were outscored 31-9 in the series.
