The Washington Nationals and the Chicago Cubs will both be gunning for a victory on Sunday when they meet at Wrigley Field.

The Nationals will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Erick Fedde in this game. Fedde has a 0-1 record and a 11.25 ERA this season.

It’ll be Jon Lester toeing the rubber for the Cubs in this contest. Left hander Lester is 8-6 with a 3.96 ERA so far this season.

Fedde was roughed up in his major-league debut Sunday against Colorado, allowing seven runs and 10 hits over four innings. The 24-year-old was 4-4 with a 3.72 ERA in 27 games (11 starts) between Double-A and Triple-A before being called up. Fedde was a first-round draft pick out of UNLV in 2014.

Lester was lights-out in his first three starts following the All-Star break, but he wasted a great opportunity to win a fourth straight start last time out. The 33-year-old was staked to a big lead Tuesday against Arizona but couldn’t get out of the fifth inning, as he allowed three runs in four-plus frames with nine strikeouts. Lester is 2-1 with a 2.53 ERA in five starts against the Nationals, including a no-decision this season in which he allowed one run and three hits over six innings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 194-moneyline favorites versus the Nationals, while the game’s total is sitting at 10.

With the Washington Nationals’ pitching rotation in disarray, their three-game road series against the Chicago Cubs hasn’t exactly resembled the playoff preview it was expected to be. Nonetheless, both teams hope to get a leg up on their potential National League Division Series opponent when they play the rubber match of the set Sunday afternoon.

The Cubs snapped a three-game skid with a 7-4 win Saturday, improving to 15-6 since the All-Star break and preserving their half-game lead over Milwaukee in the NL Central. Chicago has a strong chance to take the series with ace left-hander Jon Lester starting opposite rookie right-hander Erick Fedde, who will make his second career start. The Nationals have a commanding 13-game lead over Miami in the NL East, but they’re just 7-8 over their last 15 games. Washington All-Star Bryce Harper is 4-for-9 in the series with a homer.

In their last action, Chicago was a 7-4 winner on the road against the Nationals. Bettors on Chicago at -162 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (11) sent PUSH bettors home happy as well.

In their last action, Washington was a 7-4 loser on the road against the Cubs. Bettors on Chicago at -162 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (11) sent PUSH bettors home happy as well.
