Game 88 discussion thread: Nationals vs. Cubs

If the Nationals played in any other National League division, they’d be in the thick of the race. Instead, they’re trailing second-place Atlanta – the second-best team in the NL, record-wise – by 6 ½ games.

So the Nationals will have to keep winning at a torrid rate if they want to keep within striking distance. Tonight, they’ll try to win their third straight over the Cubs and ensure a series victory. Tom Gorzelanny, who’s allowed one earned run in 14 innings over his last two starts, will face his former team. Randy Wells will take a 6.59 ERA to the mound for Chicago.

As always, talk about the game right here.
