The Nationals will try to win their first postseason series in franchise history by trotting out Stephen Strasburg. Strasburg, arguably Washington's most reliable regular-season starter, has already made two appearances in the postseason -- one in relief during the Wild Card Game, and the other in a thrilling Game 2 victory. Overall, he enters having permitted one run in nine innings while fanning 14 batters and walking nine. That'll play.
The Dodgers figure to piggyback Walker Buehler with Clayton Kershaw as a means of minimizing their middle-relief exposure. Buehler shut out the Nationals for six innings, limiting them to one hit and three walks in Game 2. This will be his sixth career postseason start. Kershaw, meanwhile, will be making his seventh career postseason relief appearance.
This series could go either way -- it certainly has so far. We'll lean Dodgers because of home-field advantage.
Pick: Dodgers 3, Nationals 2
