I’d think there would be great interest in this game among Cubs fans, as it will determine the Cubs’ NLCS opponent.

Probable pitchers: Rich Hill (Dodgers), Max Scherzer (Nationals).

Hill might be piggybacked tonight with Julio Urias, as he’s going on only three days’ rest. The Nats hit Hill pretty hard in Game 2. Meanwhile, the Nats stand behind their ace, Scherzer, which means if they win this game and the series, Scherzer couldn’t go until Game 3 of the NLCS.

Today’s game is on FS1 at 7 p.m. CT. Announcers: Kenny Albert, Tom Verducci, Harold Reynolds and J.P. Morosi. Gameday game preview
