Clayton Kershaw (10-1, 1.58) vs. Stephen Strasburg (10-0, 2.90).
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the Dodgers' offense won't be able to do much in the opening game of this series.
And sadly, that probably has nothing to do with the fact that we're facing Strasburg, third in the majors with 118 Ks (teammate Max Scherzer, whom we won't see in this series, is second with 128; Kershaw leads with 133 Ks). It's because our team is 12th in the NL in OPS (Washington is 6th), and our best hitter is Corey Seager (30th) at .280; Daniel Murphy of the Nationals leads the NL with a .358 BA. So, expect no run support for Kershaw, and a difficult loss for our ace on national television.
