Washington Nationals (59-57) @ Chicago Cubs (67-48)

Tanner Roark (6-12, 4.21) vs. Jon Lester (12-4, 3.44)

Second of three games in this series. Tale of two starting pitchers. Lester pitching his worst baseball of season right now. Roark 3-0 in his last three starts, in which he's only given up two runs.

M1 — Frustrating 2-run HR given up by Lester. After getting 2 outs on 3 pitches, Lester allowed single to Harper & was then taken deep by Zimmerman.

B3 — Rizzo reaches 1,000 in terms of career hits with a single in the 3rd inning. Cubs threatening

B3 — Crazy footwork by Rizzo on steal attempt. Does a ballet move to try to avoid tag. Called out anyway. Before that, Cubs score on sac fly that Nats OFs nearly botch.

T4 — Zimmerman hammering Lester today. 2nd HR off him puts Nats up 9-1.

Lester sports a miserable 7.51 ERA in his last 9 starts. Hard to believe he was arguably the NL Cy Young frontrunner entering July.

De La Rosa looking good in his Cubs debut. 1.1 hitless innings so far. All 4 outs he's recorded have come via strikeout.

T6 — Montgomery enters as reliever for 1st time in many months. Bote in at 1B. He makes solid play on tricky grounder right off the bat.

B8 — Roark finally taken out as Contreras provides Cubs with their 2nd run on RBI single. Roark gave up 9 hits but struck out 7.

F — Happ strikes out looking (his favorite pastime lately) to end inning. Deceptive final score. Total dominance by Nats early on (including 6-run 4th) precludes any late-game drama.
