Believe it, folks.
The Washington Nationals take on the defending World Series champions, Chicago Cubs, in the NL Division Series starting this weekend. They kickoff the best-of-five series in DC. Game 5 would be played on 10/12 in DC, if necessary.
Friday’s game (10/6) boasts the pitching duel between the mighty Stephen Strasburg (15-4) vs. Kyle Hendricks (7-5), while Saturday’s game (10/7) pits Gio González (15-9) vs. Jon Lester (13-8).
It remains to be seen when Max Scherzer, your defending NL Cy Young winner, can pitch in this series. He will pitch thankfully, we do know that. The Nationals need him.
