The Dodgers lost to the Nationals in Game 4 of the NLDS behind a dominating pitching performance by their ace, Max Scherzer, which ties up the series and pushes it to a series-deciding Game 5 at Chavez Ravine this Wednesday.
The official start time scheduled is 5:37p PDT, and the probable starters will be Dodgers Game 1 starter, Walker Buehler and Nationals Game 2 starter, Steven Strasburg, who have both had amazing performances in their respective outings.
- Walker Buehler: 6 Innings pitched, 8 strike outs
- Stephen Strasburg: 6 innings pitched, 10 strike outs
Clayton Kershaw was lurking in the bullpen on Monday is Washington, and would have pitched in relief if the game was still tied going into late innings. However, as soon as the Nats blew it open with the Zimmerman home run, it was decided to save him for Game 5.
