Tanner Roark has been throwing the ball so much better than he did for most of the season and he’s got a good track record in a couple of career starts against this Cubs core.
Roark’s twelve losses still lead the league but he’s won his last three starts, going twenty-two inning and giving up just two runs, combined. He’s struck out twenty and walked just one in that span.
Otherwise, it’s the same old story with the Nats. What a disappointing season it’s been.
Jon Lester’s form in the second half is one of the biggest concerns the Cubs have, along with Kris Bryant’s injury, as we approach the playoffs.
Lester was 12–2 and made the all-star team in the first half of the season. In four starts since, he’s winless with an ERA over 8.50.
Meanwhile, Bryant continues to make progress, reportedly. But David Bote has been so steady at third base that the former MVP’s absence hasn’t been startling. Still, the Cubs need their big boppers if they’re to get back to the World Series.
