Chicago Sports Recap: 5/1/23

Chicago CubsChicago Cubs 5 – Washington Nationals 1

Highlights:  Dansby Swanson hit a two-run homer and Drew Smyly delivered seven solid innings as the Chicago Cubs bounced back from a rough series at Miami to beat the Washington Nationals 5-1 on Monday night.  Swanson went 3-for-5, including a double and his second homer of the season. The 389-foot blast to left-center in the fifth inning made it 4-1, a welcome advantage for the Cubs, who snapped a three-game skid. All those losses to the Marlins were by one run. Smyly (3-1) allowed a homer by Lane Thomas in the second inning but cruised from there, throwing just 84 pitches. The left-hander gave up six hits and walked none in his fifth straight start allowing two runs or fewer. Read more at:  (AP)
