The Cubs got off to a strong start to begin defense of their World Series title as Kyle Hendricks out dueled Stephen Strasburg in a 3-0 road win over the Nationals in Game 1 of the NL Division Series. Hendricks held Washington to two singles and three walks over seven innings, while Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo broke open a scoreless game with consecutive RBI singles in the sixth – the first two hits Strasburg allowed. Game 2 takes place later, with Chicago sending Jon Lester to the mound and Gio Gonzalez taking the ball for the Nationals.
