After yesterday’s thrilling Cubs’ win, it’s nice to know we have Jake Arrieta coming to the mound today to tame the Nationals hitters. It could also be a good day for the Cubs offense since it looks like the wind it blowing out today, a stark contrast from yesterday’s wind that was gusting straight in.
I’m interested to know what you think the final score to this game will be….leave a comment below with your prediction. I’ll leave mine too and we’ll see who gets closest.
The Cubs are going with Jorge Soler today in left field. My first prediction is that Jorge will hit at least one home run today, maybe two. He’s due and the wind is blowing out.
Here’s the Cubs lineup. Oh, and happy Mother’s Day!
Jake Arrieta (R)

1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
