W. Nationals vs Chicago Cubs by FairPlayBet
The Cubs have won here the game 1 and then lost game 2. Thus the defending champions get back to Chicago for third and forth game with chance to finish the job at home. And the Cubs were on right track, they took the lead after victory in game 3. But then the Cubs really were unfortunate. They were favorites in game 4 since Tanner Roark was supposed to start for Nationals. But then the rain saved Washington. The game 4 was postponed for one day and thus Nationals were able to change the pitcher and to start with Stephen Strasburg who had a flu two pevious days. But due to fact rain postponed the game, Strasburg was able to recover and to be ready.
But although the Nats came to this game 5 thanks to rain, I do not think they will win this series. I still believe the Cubs will be the one who will face LA Dodgers in NL finals. BTW that would be their third straight National League Championship Series.
Today the home team will start with Gio Gonzalez who is 15-9 and 2.96 ERA. He was starter once in this series and the Nats have lost back then.
Kyle Hendricks (7-5 and 3.03 ERA) will start for Chicago. He was starter in game 1 Cubs' 0:3 win here in Washington. He was amazing back then with seven scoreless innings and only two allowed hits and three walks. In the bullpen we will see Jose Quintana for the Cubs and he was the starter in game 3 which Cubs also won.
