Chicago Cubs vs W. Nationals by GameChanger
At first it might seem like Cubs have a lot better pitcher for today's game but Cubs pitcher Lackey is playing very good this season and he has awful ERA of 4.97 with 8 wins and 9 losses.
Edwin Jackson will take the mound for Nats and he has been solid pitcher for them with 3.75 ERA and 2 wins.
When it come to hitting Nats obviously have a lot better hitter, especially with the heart of their order (Harper, Murphy Zimmerman, Rendon). Harper and Murphy are one of the best hitters in N.L. and they both have batting average far above 0.300.
I also think that Nats have a lot better defense and only position in which Cubs have better player is third base with Bryant.
Cubs used to have a lot better bullpen but Nats brought couple of good relivers in transfer period so they are looking solid when it comes to bullpen pitchers.
