Trailing 8-0 in the sixth inning, the Cubs bounced back for a stunning win over the Nationals, pulling them to within 17 games of .500, and 11 games out of first place. "We're right where we need to be to make a good run," starter Matt Garza said afterward. Hmmm. Not quite. They went 35-36 afterward, finishing 25 games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central, leading to the firing of manager Mike Quade.
