After shockingly holding their own against the first-place team in the NL West, the Cubs will be in Washington to play the first-place team in the NL East. We should all be praying that the Cubs do well in this series or we’ll never hear the end of it from gravedigger.
Jeff Samardzija (8-12, 4.03) will take on lefty Ross Detwiler (8-6, 3.32). With a lefty on the mound for the Nationals, you know what that means for the Cubs… Lefty lineup!
You’ll be able to watch the game on WGN today. Let’s go team!
