Cubs Vs. Giants Preview: Chris Rusin Will Make 2nd Major League Start

After dropping the first game of the series 2-1 on Monday, the Chicago Cubs will try to take Game 2 against the Washington Nationals Tuesday.

Chicago has lost six of its last eight games including their last three. The Cubs will attempt to snap their losing streak with Chris Rusin (0-1, 1.80 ERA) getting the start. It will be Rusin's second career Major League start. Rusin made his Major League debut Aug. 21, tossing five innings against the Milwaukee Brewers while allowing just one run.

The Nationals will counter with Edwin Jackson (8-9, 3.53 ERA) who will be making his first start against the Cubs this season. Jackson is coming off one of the best starts of his season, an eight-inning performance against the St. Louis Cardinals. Jackson struck out 10 and didn't allow an earned run.

Tuesday's first pitch from Nationals Park is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
