Nationals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- A poor pitching performance led to the end of a lengthy winning streak for the Washington Nationals, but it didn't take long for the NL East leaders to get back on track.

Following their eighth consecutive series victory, the Nationals hit the road Monday to take on the Chicago Cubs.

Washington (26-18) had won six in a row and 12 of 14 prior to Saturday's 8-1 loss to Philadelphia in which Stephen Strasburg failed to escape the fourth inning.
