CHICAGO (AP) -- Police are sweeping through baseball venue Wrigley Field with dogs after officials ordered everyone to leave the Chicago ballpark.
The Nationals returned home last Monday with an opportunity ahead of them. They had just been swept by the New York Mets to close a road trip where they lost seven of 10 games.
The Nationals send Max Scherzer (11-8, 2.31) to the mound looking to end this series against the Colorado Rockies and homestand on a high note.
