Yelich has 3 hit night as Cubs Squeeze Past Washington
Dedicated fans at Wrigley Field weathered the storm to watch their beloved Cubs beat the Nationals.

Chicago (N) beat Washington at Wrigley Field, escaping with a 6-5 win. The win in large part was due to left fielder Christian Yelich, who earned player of the game honors. He went 3-3 with a home run, 2 doubles, and a walk. He scored 3 runs and drove in 2. The save was credited to Mark Montgomery, his 18th.

Chicago (N) grabbed the momentum in the bottom of the eighth, when Yelich, who is tied for 2nd in the NL with a .446 on-base percentage, hit a solo home run. His 8th home run of the season put the Cubs out in front, 6-5.

"It wasn't our best performance," said Yelich, "but a win in this league is nothing to sniff at."

Chicago (N) now sits at 36-25, while Washington falls to 34-25.
