How to Watch Cubs at Nationals: Stream MLB Live, TV Channel

Monday's Cubs-Nationals game was a nail biter. Will the teams play another close one on Tuesday?

Monday night, the Chicago Cubs (47-67) and Washington Nationals (39-78) began their three-game series at Nationals Park in dramatic fashion. The Nationals had to come back late to win 5-4. Will Tuesday's game be another close one? In that Monday win, the Nationals fell behind 2-0 before they managed to record three outs. Down 3-0 in the bottom of the fifth, they rolled off four runs in that frame to retake the lead. Chicago would answer to tie the game in the top of the seventh, but designated hitter Nelson Cruz hit a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth creating what would end up being the game-winning run.
