The Cubs went on to crush the Nationals 11-1 as Jeff Samardzija pitched a complete game and Nate Schierholtz homered twice and had 6 RBI. Donnie Murphy also hit two homers and Dioner Navarro hit a homer.

DeJesus was a leader in the Cubs' clubhouse and will surely be missed. But Cubs General Manager Jed Hoyer said there's a chance DeJesus could return to the Cubs in 2014....we shall see!
Tomorrow the Cubs and Nationals play game two at 7:05pm CT. Left-handed pitcher Chris Rusin will make the start for the Cubs and try to earn his third win of the season.
