The Cubs lost 4-2 on Sunday and left Miami with a four-game split over the weekend.
Mike Montgomery pitched well for Chicago. He went six innings and gave up three unearned runs in the first inning. Otherwise, he allowed four hits and struck out six.
The Cubs now enter week 13 one game above .500 and 1.5-games back of the Milwaukee Brewers for first-place in the NL Central.
Eddie Butler continues to start in the Cubs’ rotation. He hasn’t gone six innings since his first start of the season, seven outings ago, but Butler has remained mildly effective. He’s got a 4.19 ERA and a 3-2 record.
Washington also lost on Sunday but it was going for a sweep of Cincinnati. The Nats’ offense couldn’t get going after scoring 18 runs on Saturday and the Reds salvaged a game, 6-2 final.
Tanner Roark gave up six runs in six innings. His ERA has reached 5.15.
Washington will stay right at home and Gio Gonzalez will start the series opener on Monday.
Gonzalez is having one of his finest seasons thus far. He’s 7-1 with a 2.96 ERA after a fifth straight quality start last week in Miami.
Gonzalez’s walk numbers are still a little troubling (40 in 94 innings) but he doesn’t allow many of them to score, nor affect his pitch count. He averages more than six innings per start. Opponents are hitting just .230.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction: Chicago gets to Gonzalez and wins game one.
The travel shouldn’t be a big deal for the Cubs after an afternoon game on Sunday. Gonzalez isn’t invincible and I expect Chicago to put some runs on the board.
