The Washington Nationals defeated the Chicago Cubs 9-2 on Thursday, September 6, 2012 to complete the four game sweep.
In a nutshell: Starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann returns to form, Bryce Harper continues to hustle and get dirty, Adam LaRoche hits his fifth home run in as many games, Kurt Suzuki has found his swing and hit another homer, there are two bench and bullpen clearing brawls, Davey Johnson is strong, and the Cubs learn not to mess with 3B Coach Bo Porter. Wilson Ramos also returned the dugout to support his teammates while on rehab.
