Nationals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- All eyes have been on Bryce Harper and Kris Bryant in the series between the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs, and both young sluggers provided late home runs Tuesday at Wrigley Field.

Those offensive fireworks could be difficult to find in the decisive finale as Washington's Max Scherzer looks to win his fifth straight start Wednesday night in a battle of aces against Chicago's Jon Lester.

The 22-year-old Harper and the 23-year-old Bryant have been rivals since their high school days in Las Vegas and entered their first series in the majors as two of the game's most exciting young players.
