nationals parkEdwin Jackson tries to win his first game with the Cubs, and he’ll do it at his old stomping grounds. Of course, with Jackson, you can say that about half the time he takes the ball on the road.

The Cubs get to face one of the two faces of the Nationals today, as Bryce Harper is still out with an ingrown toenail thing, but Stephen Strasburg gets the start.
