Last off-day of the season for the Dodgers, so let's start watching the scoreboards around the relevant NL teams:
- Brewers @ Braves, 4p. Marco Estrada (6-4, 4.26) vs. Mike Minor (13-7, 3.19). Braves are two games up on the Dodgers, with the best record in the NL (92-63).
- Mets @ Reds, 4p. Former Dodgers Aaron Harang (5-12, 5.69) faces Johnny Cueto (5-2, 3.02). Reds are tied with the Pirates for the NL Wild Card, and both are two games behind St. Louis.
- Pirates @ Cubs, 5p. Charlie Morton (7-4, 3.35) vs. Jeff Samardzija (8-12, 4.42).
- Nationals @ Cardinals, 5p. Tanner Roark (7-0, 1.08) vs. Adam Wainwright (17-9, 2.98). For those of you not down with the transitive property, St. Louis is one game ahead of the Dodgers as the NL Central leader.
