The Dodgers will try to fight off elimination this afternoon at home against the Nationals. Clayton Kershaw will either re-affirm that he is the best pitcher in baseball, or fuel the narratives that he “just doesn’t know how to win in the post-season.” His opposition will be rookie Joe Ross. The game airs at 4 CT on FS1 and the Fox Sports Go App. Tickets are still available.
At 7:40 CT, the Cubs will try again to finish off the Giants. San Francisco got a reprieve from elimination last night, but they will put the “even year” theory to the test tonight at home. John Lackey goes for the Cubs against Giants pitcher Matt Moore, acquired at mid-season from the Rays this year. The game will also air on FS1 and the Fox Sports Go App.
