Metro Canada (Halifax) - - SPORTS - Game 4 in Chicago The As­so­ci­ated Press

Stephen Stras­burg shook off an ill­ness and all doubts about his met­tle to pitch seven dom­i­nant in­nings, Michael A. Taylor hit a late grand slam and the Washington Na­tion­als beat the Chicago Cubs 5-0 on Wednesday to send their NL Di­vi­sion Se­ries to a de­ci­sive Game 5.

The teams packed up at Wrigley Field and headed back to Washington for Game 5 Thurs- day night.

Stras­burg got sick after his ter­rific per­for­mance on Fri­day, and the Nats had planned to go with Tan­ner Roark. But Stras­burg felt bet­ter Wednesday and took the ball with the sea­son on the line.
