When the Cubs win their division series (how’s that for optimism?), their opponent in the NLCS will be the winner of this series.
My prediction, for what it’s worth: Nationals in five games.
Probable pitchers: Clayton Kershaw vs. Max Scherzer. This is a matchup of two of the best pitchers in the game, and you’d expect a low-scoring pitchers’ duel. You don’t always get what you ask for, though. Weather shouldn’t be an issue for this game, though Game 2 Saturday in this series could be threatened by rain.
Today’s game is on FS1. Announcers: Kenny Albert, Tom Verducci, Harold Reynolds and J.P. Morosi.
