Nats, struggling Hellickson meets Cubs in series finale

The Nationals will make their first appearance of the season on Sunday Night Baseball, facing a familiar prime-time team in the Chicago Cubs in the finale of a three-game set in D.C.

Washington, with struggles from the back end of the rotation, will hope to get some length from starter Jeremy Hellickson (2-2, 6.00 ERA). The veteran right-hander will make his fourth career start against Chicago, while the Cubs will counter with veteran right-hander Kyle Hendricks (3-4, 2.86).

The Nationals are hesitant to let Hellickson face opposing batters the third time through the order.
