The Nationals can clinch a series win on the road tonight, something they have not done since they beat the White Sox on June 26 – the day before Manager Davey Johnson took over. The Nationals would also get back to 57-59 with a win, which would be their best record relative to .500 since July 23.
Ross Detwiler will make his third start this season and the 10th start on the road in his career. That’s notable because Detwiler has never won on the road – he’s 0 and 7 with a 4.89 on the road. They’ll face Rodrigo Lopez, who’s 2-3 with a 5.17 ERA. The wind is blowing out to left, something to watch at Wrigley Field.
As always, talk about the game right here.
