Cubs savor moment after hard-fought series Jon Lester doesn't remember who Anthony Rizzo Jerseys first provided the mindset, but he practices it after each series victory. A three-time World Series champion, Lester has found himself at the center of many celebrations like the one the Cubs enjoyed after their 9-8 victory Thursday against the Nationals in Game 5 of the National League Division Series presented by T-Mobile. At 33, Chicago Cubs Jerseys he knows the Addison Russell Jerseys cruelty of the game he plays. He knows his total of 20 postseason starts is not ever-expanding. He knows the joyous moments could end at any time. So as the music blared, the cheers loudened, and the smells of smoke and champagne filled the visitors' clubhouse at Nationals Park, Lester, as he always does, savored it. He was among the biggest celebrators in the small, square room, further restricted Addison Russell Jerseys by the plastic sheeting covering the lockers as players doused one another. "These moments are always great," Lester said. "I've been a firm Javier Baez Jerseys believer in that since Day 1. Somebody told me that early on in my career where you don't take these moments for granted. It may be your last. "This game is very fickle, to the fact that you never know when your last one may come, so I always try to enjoy them as best you can." The party was not diluted despite the Cubs needing two more series victories to repeat as World Series champions. For them, there has been plenty to celebrate of late. Chicago advanced to its third straight NL Championship Series, presented by Camping World, with its wild victory over Washington. The celebration afterward was arguably just as raucous. Corks, caps and ice cubes speckled the blue carpet. Champagne dripped from the beards of outfielders Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward. Others smoked cigars.

Cubs slot Happ into unfamiliar leadoff spot Cubs manager Joe Maddon fielded his strongest lineup of the series Thursday, with one twist. Ian Happ, who grew up in nearby Mt. Lebanon, Pa., hit leadoff for just the seventh time. Asked about the move, Maddon said, "He's from Mt. Lebanon. I actually played at Lafayette with a couple of guys from Mt. Lebanon. So I thought, 'He's right next to his hometown, he's got to have a good day leading off.'" He was kidding, of course. For the first time in the four-game set, Maddon's two best hitters, Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, hit second and third, respectively. Contreras opens rehab assignment Willson Contreras went 0-for-2 with a hit-by-pitch and a strikeout to open his rehab assignment with Class A Advanced Myrtle Beach on Thursday. He played four innings at catcher before being removed. Contreras is scheduled to play one more game on Friday for Myrtle Beach before joining the Cubs. The Pelicans are playing Rangers affiliate Down East in the Carolina League Southern Division Championship Series. Infield shuffling Maddon is more than pleased with Javier Baez's move from second base to shortstop in place of the injured Addison Russell. The Anthony Rizzo Jerseys versatile Ben Zobrist has received most of the time at second, with Tommy La Stella and Mike Freeman primarily serving as defensive replacements. Apparently, they're still auditioning. Javier Baez fields a one-hopper and throws to third base to start a fine 6-5-4 double play in the bottom of the 6th inning "If, in fact, Addie can't make it back, I think it's gonna be important to figure out who is the best defensive second baseman to run with in the Javier Baez Jerseys latter part of the game," Maddon said. Russell went on the 10-day disabled list Aug. 4 with a Chicago Cubs Jerseys right foot strain and Javier Baez Jerseys aggravated the injury during a couple of rehab games in the Minors at the end of August. The Cubs at the time announced his recovery would take another three weeks. Getting better? Maybe right-handed reliever Hector Rondon is starting to figure it out. He helped preserve the Cubs' 1-0 win with a perfect seventh inning Wednesday, his fifth straight outing in which he did not give up a run. On the other hand, his ERA was 4.58 entering Thursday's game. "His stuff has been great, it's just the consistency of the results," Maddon said. "Physically, he can't throw the ball any better than he Addison Russell Jerseys is. I think the biggest things are consistency with his slider and location with his fastball. "But his stuff's been great. From here, the ball's jumping out of his hand. When they hit him, I don't even know how they do it. But if you look at the video, he's missing spots, missing location."
