This three game series will come down to Sunday night as the Nationals recently tied up the series with a huge day at the plate from Ryan Zimmerman. The first baseman would hit two home runs as he would bring in six runs by himself. Let’s see if he can reproduce that on Sunday night.
On the mound for the Nationals will be Max Scherzer who allowed only one run over seven innings against the Braves on Tuesday, but the Nats’ offense managed only one run of support. The right-hander is 3-1 with a 2.92 ERA in six career starts against the Cubs.
The Chicago Cubs are still two games ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers as they still control the NL Central. However times have changed and the Cubs have been pushed around as of late. With Cole Hamels on the mound, expect another performance to make him an honorary Chicago Cub.
On the mound for the Cubs will be Cole Hamels who is 2-0 and has given up one earned run over 11 innings with the Cubs. He’s 16-9 with a 2.67 ERA vs. the Nats, but hasn’t faced them since 2015. This will be his Wrigley Field debut as a Cub and first game there since July 17, 2016.
