This will be the second game of 4 game series played in Washington. Washington won 2-1 last night and is leading the season series 3-1.
Washington is the best team in entire MLB with with 82-52 record. Along with Cincinnati and Texas they are the team with fewest home defeats, in 64 games played at Nationals Park they have recorded only 25 losses. Chicago Cubs are the second worst team in majors with 51-83 record. They are also the second worst road team with just 17 victories in 66 away games. They have lost 14 of last 15 on the road.
Washington’s first baseman Adam LaRoche hit his 25th homer yesterday. Their 3rd baseman Ryan Zimmerman is on an eight-game hitting streak.
Edwin Jackson will be starting for Washington tonight. He is 8-9, 3.53 ERA after 25 starts in 2012. He recorded a win in his last start 6 days ago against St. Louis allowing no earned runs while striking out 10 in 8 innings of work. He has surrendered 3 earned runs or less in 7 out of his last 8 starts. Jackson recorded 29 strikeouts in his last 3 starts.
Chicago is sending out Chris Rusin, who is 0-1, 1.80 ERA after his first start. He gave up one run and one hit in five innings in his MLB debut August 21 in Milwaukee but took the loss in a 5-2 defeat. Rusin was 8-9, 4.55 ERA in 25 starts this season at Triple-A Iowa.
Chicago lost 25 of their last 33 games overall and I expect them to lose tonight.
