Probable Starting Pitchers

Making the start for the Chicago Cubs on Monday evening against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park is Drew Smyly. After the Cubs were swept over the weekend against the Miami Marlins, the team is in need of a stopper to halt their 3-game losing streak and return to the win column. Smyly, outside of his first start of the season against the Cincinnati Reds, has been just as good as Marcus Stroman and Justin Steele this season for the Cubs. Through 5 starts this season, Smyly has posted a 3.21 ERA. Smyly's success this season has been predicated on his utilization of his cutter and curveball and that will need to continue on Monday.

Making the start for the Nationals on Monday is MacKenzie Gore. Gore was included in the Juan Soto trade between the Nationals and San Diego Padres last season and has posted an ERA of 3 through his first five starts this season.
