To be fair, the Cubs bats have been even worse and their two wins were off

Nats mistakes so it could have even been a sweep (honestly in either direction since both teams have capitalized on opponent errors like good teams often do).

Game 1 Stras has a no-hitter going and Rendon error (on missed foul ball call) leads to 2 runs and the difference in the game. Game 3 Nats are leading and bring in Solis (????) in 7th inning instead of the normal Kinzter in 7th and a hit and a unrespectable bloop lose the game.

Conversely, Zimm gets the first run across the plate last night off an error, and in game 3 the Cubs gave Zimm a chance to hit the RBI double after the double error, but then Nats made more mistakes to give the lead back as noted above. Also in game 2 pitching with the lead in the 8th, Edwards Jr. gives us Harper 2 run shot and then Zimm 3 run bomb. Mistakes have been the difference in nearly every win/loss and probably the series will be lost tonight by the first to crack.
