Dodgers, Nationals Turn To Their Most Consistent Pitchers In Game 5
Runs might be hard to come by on Wednesday night
After stifling the Washington Nationals in Game 1 of the NLDS, the Los Angeles Dodgers will turn to Walker Buehler with their season on the line in Game 5.
After posting a 14-4 record and 3.26 ERA in the regular season, the 25 year old will try to continue his postseason dominance. Clayton Kershaw will likely be available in relief, if needed.
Meanwhile, Stephen Strasburg went 18-6 with a 3.32 ERA in the regular season and had a dominant performance in Game 1 of this series as well, going 6.0 innings while allowing there hits and an earned run while striking out 10. Washington will turn to him and hope that he can produce a similar outing.
He has been similarly brilliant in the postseason and quietly has the lowest playoff ERA in history (with a minimum of four starts).
Like Buehler, when he’s on, his stuff is nearly unhittable.
It should be an incredible matchup with plenty of drama in the win-or-go-home scenario!
