The Cubs and Nationals were rained out on Friday night and will play a doubleheader on Saturday. The Brewers won on Friday to get within four games in the NL Central but the Cubs have to feel comfortable in their position. I doubt Joe Maddon stresses anybody in the eighteen innings on Saturday.
Originally, Mike Montgomery was scheduled to pitch against Erick Fedde in this game at 1:35 and he still may, though the doubleheader could change things up.
Meanwhile, the Cubs acquired Jaime Garcia to bolster the starting rotation, which feels a little thin for a team that’s supposed to the the pennant favorite.
With Yu Darvish not coming back this season and Drew Smyly likely not either, at least not in postseason leverage, it’s a god-send the Cubs acquired Cole Hamels when they did. They are going to have to ride him in the playoffs.
Ninety wins will win the NL East, perhaps even eighty-seven or eight-eight and the Nationals aren’t going to come close to getting there.
In fact, the Nats are three games under .500 entering this game after their third consecutive loss on Thursday in the opener of this series.
Erick Fedde made his first start in two months against the Cardinals five days ago and got a no-decision after giving up four hits and four runs in five innings.
