Anything you can do, I can do better.
After the Cubs put up a run in the first inning to start Game 5, the Nationals had a response.
Daniel Murphy followed it up with a homer to right to tie the game, and then, Michael Taylor, the hero from Game 4, brought in three runs of his own with an absolute bomb.
Here's Murphy's solo home run to get the wheels rolling:

The Washington crowd is going wild as the Nats have taken a 4-1 lead.
Kyle Hendricks, one of Chicago's most reliable arms, is not off to a hot start in the nation's capital.
The defending World Series champs have to respond if they want to keep their chances of a repeat alive.
