by - Senior Editor -

Washington Nationals (19-8) vs. Chicago Cubs (20-6)

The Chicago Cubs, a season-high 14 games over .500 following a three-game sweep of the Pirates at PNC Park, return home to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and begin a 10-game homestand with the first of four games against the Washington Nationals … the Cubs, at 20-6 (.769), and Nationals, 19-8 (.704) own the two best records in baseball.

Starting Lineup on Monday

1. Dexter Fowler CF

2. Tommy La Stella 3B

3. Kris Bryant RF

4. Anthony Rizzo 1B

5. Ben Zobrist 2B

6. Ryan Kalish LF

7. Addison Russell SS

8. Tim Federowicz C

9. Kyle Hendricks P

Kyle tonight makes his 50th career start and his fifth this season … has surrendered just

four walks in his four starts, fewest among Cubs starters … his 4.75 SO/BB ratio leads

all N.L. Central starters with at least four starts.

Heyward has missed the last three games … is 0-for-17 in his last four games following a five-game stretch in which he batted .500 (10-for-20) with five walks
