Pre-Gamin’: Nationals v. Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.

Pre-Gamin'

wrigley field inside featureThe Cubs are in a rough patch, and they’ll get no quarter from the Nationals, who are streaking and have finally climbed into first place in the weakened NL East.

Travis Wood has, himself, hit a rough patch, and he could use one of those dominant starts – we know he’s got it in him – to turn things around a bit.

Wood is opposed tonight by Doug Fister, in the kind of all-innuendo matchup of which headline writers dream. (“Fister? No need, Cubs have Wood” … I’m terribly sorry for that.)
