ANALYSIS: The Nats have dropped five straight series. They're starting Cory Abbott today, who's only made three starts this season. He did do very well in his first, but has struggled in the two that followed. Drew Smyly has looked good lately, posting a 2.42 ERA in his last five starts. Admittedly, both bullpens were very worked over the last two games between these teams, but I think the Cubs offense should give them the edge.
