NATS GAME NIGHT, GAME 90: Cubs at Nats -- Starting Lineups

Posted by Dave Nichols | Saturday, July 18, 2009 | , , | 0 comments »

Washington looks to break a two-game losing streak to the Cubs on a beautiful Saturday night for baseball.

The Nats have scored a grand total of three runs so far in the homestand, with last night's run pushed in on a walk by Cubs righty Carlos Zambrano. Combined with Zambrano's two-RBI double later, that made him responsible for most of the scoring in last night's ball game.
