The fans at Nationals Park will be treated to a game between the Chicago Cubs and the Washington Nationals when they take their seats on Wednesday.

The Cubs will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander John Lackey in this game. Lackey has a 5-8 record and a 4.74 ERA this season.

Lackey’s opponent in this one will be Stephen Strasburg. The Nationals right hander has a 3.57 ERA to go along with a 8-2 record this season.

Lackey has posted quality starts in his last two outings, matching his total from his previous 11 starts. The 38-year-old took a tough-luck loss at Miami on Friday despite allowing two runs (one earned) and three hits over six innings. Lackey is 2-0 with a 3.49 ERA in six starts against the Nationals.

After a string of five straight quality starts, Strasburg has failed to notch one in his last three outings – posting a 7.63 ERA over that stretch. The 28-year-old was tagged for five runs and eight hits over five innings in a no-decision against Cincinnati on Friday. Strasburg is 0-1 with a 1.95 ERA in four starts against the Cubs.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nationals listed as 175-moneyline favorites versus the Cubs, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

After seeing their depleted lineup dominated by a two-time Cy Young Award winner, things don’t get much easier for the Chicago Cubs. One night after Max Scherzer and four relievers combined on a two-hitter, the Cubs face another tall task when the host Washington Nationals send Stephen Strasburg to the mound for the third of a four-game series on Wednesday.

Chicago’s lineup was loaded with rookies and reserves in Tuesday’s 6-1 defeat, as shortstop Addison Russell (shoulder) was limited to pinch-hit duties and starters Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward remain on the disabled list. Washington set a Nationals record and tied the franchise mark with seven stolen bases while evening the series, with Trea Turner matching his own franchise record with four swipes. The Nationals continued to break out of a brief offensive funk – after being held to two runs in a loss to Cincinnati on Sunday and being shut out for eight innings Monday, they scored four runs in the ninth inning of the opener and kept swinging the bats well Tuesday. The Cubs have scored one run or fewer 14 times this season after doing so only 19 times all of last season.

Washington won its last outing, a 6-1 result against the Cubs on June 27. Bettors who backed the Nationals at -168 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Chicago was a 6-1 loser on the road against the Nationals. Bettors on Washington at -168 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
