Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Nationals (6:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs dropped the opener against the Nationals last night, but will give it another go today. And with Kyle Hendricks on the mound – against a much depleted Nationals lineup – you feel good about their chances.

With that said, the righty, Joe Ross, is having his best season in four years and has allowed just five earned runs over his last 25.0 innings (1.80 ERA) with 30 strikeouts and just 6 walks.
