Nationals eliminate Dodgers on Kendrick's grand slam

Nationals eliminate Dodgers on Kendrick's grand slam”

"They got off to a good start". However, that was not enough as the Nationals came back late and earned a 7-3 victory in 10 innings that propelled them to their first NL Championship Series.

Dodgers base runner Matt Beaty is tagged out by Nationals shortstop Trea Turner during the second inning of Game 5 of the NLDS.

The Dodgers will hope for a familiar ending but a better beginning. Jansen pitched 2 1/3 innings throwing 51 pitches so the Dodgers turned to Clayton Kershaw for the last two outs and the save.

Pederson went the other way on a 1-1 fastball and the ball seemed to disappear as it came down against the wall.

Dodgers first baseman Max Muncy hits a two-run home run during the first inning of Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Washington Nationals.

The Dodgers are 59-22 on their home turf. In 2016 the Nationals were not expecting Clayton to come out of the bullpen and Dave Roberts before the game said there was no way that he would pitch.

Strasburg didn't have his same command of breaking pitches that induced plenty of swing and miss in Game 2, but he managed to settle in to keep the Nationals' deficit manageable.

In a flawless world, Buehler will throw seven strong innings and turn a Dodger lead over to Kershaw and Jansen.

That prompted Clayton Kershaw to enter out of the bullpen, and he stranded both runners by picking up a strikeout.

Kershaw gave up back-to-back sole homers to the first two hitters - Anthony Rendon and then Juan Soto - that that he saw in the bottom of the eighth, which allowed the Nationals to pull even at 3-3 and quickly chased Kershaw from the game.
