Long after the 2017 NLDS is over, Game 5 may be remembered for a missed call that swung the game in favor of the Chicago Cubs . CONTROVERSY: Baez reaches on strikeout /passed ball. As mentioned above, this was the biggest play of the inning.

Intentional or not, Javier Baez's backswing has sparked quite a bit of controversy in an already intense NLDS Game 5. © Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Intentional or not, Javier Baez's backswing has sparked quite a bit of controversy in an already intense NLDS Game 5.

The Chicago Cubs turned around Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday night against the Washington Nationals with a four-run inning in the fifth that was aided by a blown call.

Max Scherzer came in to pitch the top of the fifth for Washington with his team leading 4-3. He got two outs and then allowed an infield single, single, and then a 2-run double to give Chicago a 5-4 lead. After falling behind Jason Heyward, Scherzer intentionally walked him to bring up Javy Baez with runners on first and second with two out. That’s where things got really weird.

Baez struck out, but he reached on a dropped third strike/passed ball. As if that weren’t bad enough for Washington, Matt Wieters threw the passed ball into right field, allowing another run to score to make it 6-4. A catcher’s interference and hit by pitch allowed another run to score to make it 7-4.

The issue is that on the pitch where he struck out, Baez hit Wieters with his backswing.

MLB rules say that the ball should have been ruled dead and no runners should have advanced due to Baez’s interference.

If no runners should have advanced and the ball should have been dead, it seems like Baez should have been out for striking out and the inning would have ended with the score 5-4. Instead, two more runs scored.

Cubs find themselves in familiar spot, facing elimination

  Cubs find themselves in familiar spot, facing elimination CHICAGO - Jon Lester had the roaring crowd shaking Wrigley Field to its foundation. Turns out, his rare pickoff late in the game was about all the Chicago Cubs gave their fans to celebrate. With a chance to knock the Nationals out of the playoffs, the defending World Series champions got shut down by an ailing Stephen Strasburg in a 5-0 loss on Wednesday. That sends their NL Division Series back to Washington for a decisive Game 5 on Thursday. Lose that one, and the Cubs can forget about another parade."I don't think anybody likes having their backs against the wall," Lester said.But the Cubs have been there, done that and come away with the biggest prize of all.
