Chicago lineup Saturday after sitting out

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals outlasted the weather and the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night — and early Sunday.Bryce Harper hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning and the Nationals rallied past the Cubs 6-5 to sweep a doubleheader delayed more than 3½ hours by rain.Max Scherzer pitched a complete game and Washington took advantage of the sloppy Cubs for a 10-3 victory in the opener. By the end of a long night Jose Quintana Jersey , Chicago’s lead in the NL Central was down to 2½ games over Milwaukee.Anthony Rendon’s double off Steve Cishek scored Trea Turner to pull Washington to 5-4 in the seventh inning of the nightcap. Left-hander Justin Wilson (4-4) came on to face Harper, who drove a 1-1 pitch to straightaway center field for his 32nd home run. Harper also walked three times.“Patience, really,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said when asked what it took to get through the very long day and night.“It was nasty. It’s nasty for both teams. We’re pretty much at the mercy of the league and the rain, really. I’m proud of the guys just sticking in there and finishing the job.”Rendon had a solo homer and Adrian Sanchez added two hits and two RBIs for Washington.Wander Suero (2-0) got two outs for the win. Following an 89-minute rain delay in the middle of the eighth, Greg Holland worked the ninth to earn his second save in a game that ended at 1:44 a.m. on Sunday.Victor Caratini hit his first career grand slam off Nationals starter Jefry Rodriguez to give Chicago a 4-0 lead in the fourth.Washington pulled to 4-3 in the sixth on Rendon’s homer and an RBI double by Sanchez.Cubs starter Cole Hamels left with the lead after allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings.“We got on top, we had a nice lead, Cole was pitching well and all of sudden they just rallied from behind,” manager Joe Maddon said. “We had the right pitchers lined up, they were rested, and (the Nationals) got us. They absolutely got us.”Bidding for a third straight NL Cy Young Award, Scherzer (17-6) gave up nine hits and struck out 11 without a walk. He also had an RBI single, raising his batting average to .270 this season.It was one of just six hits for Washington, which capitalized on nine walks and three errors by the Cubs. The Nationals scored five runs in the sixth on just two hits thanks to two errors and a wild pitch that resulted in a run.Martinez visited Scherzer on the mound after the Cubs scored twice in the ninth, but left his ace in to get the final two outs.“He asked me what I wanted to do. I said I wanted to finish it,” Scherzer said, noting the 66-degree game-time temperature had him feeling good. “We’ve been playing some hot games and for the weather to cool off … ish-jersey , you just felt like you had unlimited energy and for me, I still had plenty in the tank.”Scherzer retired 15 in a row during one stretch. He lost his shutout in the seventh.It was Scherzer’s second complete game of the season and 10th of his career.After Friday night’s game was rained out following more than four hours of delays, the start of Saturday’s first game was held up by showers for 2 hours, 10 minutes.Maddon went with a bullpen game, and the Nationals jumped in front early. Jaime Garcia (3-7), making his Cubs debut, walked the bases loaded with one out in the first inning and Juan Soto sent a hard grounder past first baseman Anthony Rizzo that was ruled a two-run single. That was all for Garcia, and Washington’s Matt Wieters provided a third run with an RBI single.A LA CARTSean Doolittle of Washington became the first reliever to use the Nationals Park bullpen cart, which debuted Aug. 17. “I had a lot of fun,” Doolittle said. “It was a really smooth ride.”WERTH HONOREDThe Nationals held a ceremony on the field between games placing outfielder Jayson Werth in their Ring of Honor. Signed to a $126 million, seven-year contract as a free agent after the 2010 season, Werth hit .263 with 109 homers and 393 RBIs and served as a team leader. The Nationals, who had not made the postseason prior to his arrival, won four NL East titles during his time with them. Werth threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the second game, with his son catching.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: RF Ben Zobrist returned for the opener after being out of Friday’s lineup due to neck stiffness.UP NEXTCubs LHP Mike Montgomery (4-5, 3.76 ERA) opposes Nationals RHP Erick Fedde (1-3, 6.00) in Sunday’s series finale. BALTIMORE — The Chicago White Sox will try to stretch their winning streak to four games and finish a weekend sweep of the Baltimore Orioles when the teams meet Sunday at Camden Yards.Chicago has bounced back after dropping seven straight games. The White Sox took the final game of a series with the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday and won the first two games of this series Paul Konerko Jersey , including a 2-0 victory on Saturday night.That win also locked up the season series for the White Sox, who now lead the Orioles 4-2 with just the one game left. The White Sox (59-89) have not beaten the Orioles (42-106) in a season series since 2008.Article continues below ...Chicago has not waved the white flag in the season’s final three weeks despite struggling at times and recently dealing with that long losing streak. They’re still pushing hard in each game.“We came here to play 100 percent,” Avisail Garcia said after his solo homer in the ninth inning gave the White Sox some insurance on Saturday night. “(We) try to do our best and try to win every single game. Just trying to do our job.”Neither team could do much offensively for much of Saturday’s game. The White Sox three times tried to steal, but Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph gunned them down each time — in the third, sixth and eighth innings.Chicago went ahead thanks to a two-out rally in the sixth against Baltimore starter Yefry Ramirez. Yoan Moncada doubled to right with two outs and Yolmer Sanchez came up next and sent a double to left that scored the game’s first run.Ramirez, a rookie, has likely earned another start after a solid 5 2/3-inning outing in which he gave up one run and struck out seven.“He was outstanding,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “That was fun to watch. That was as good as you want to see a young pitcher pitch.”But that one run was all the White Sox needed thanks to seven shutout innings from Reynaldo Lopez. Lucas Giolito (10-10, 5.76 ERA) will start Sunday for Chicago against Baltimore rookie David Hess (3-10, 5.17) in the final game of the season between the teams.Giolito has fared well of late, going 3-1 with a 4.05 ERA in his last five starts. He also has struck out 33 in 33 2/3 innings and held opponents to a .218 average.The right-hander has an 0-1 career record with a 47.25 ERA versus the Orioles thanks to one bad start the only time he pitched against them. Baltimore touched him up for seven runs and six hits in 1 1/3 innings in a May 24 loss.For Hess, who has pitched well at times, especially lately, this will be his first appearance against the White Sox.Matt Davidson returned to the Chicago lineup Saturday after sitting out the previous four games (sore left calf). Manager Rick Renteria said he wanted to get Davidson’s big bat back into the lineup — he has hit 20 homers this season — and put him in as the designated hitter.Renteria said Davidson felt good after the game and will return Sunday in the series finale but at first base.
