NLDS Game 5 vs. Nationals, 5.30p

Walker Buehler vs. Stephen Strasburg.

Well, this is it: a LDS Game 5 (just like two of the other three LDS this year). And after four games of NLDS play, the Dodgers' chances to win are...not that changed from when the series began: 51.5% chance of winning (sorry, just updated to 57% on Wednesday morning). These best-of-five series are just so crazy, anything can happen--and the better team, let alone the better regular-season team, doesn't always win.

So it rests upon the shoulders of Walker Buehler, who owned the Nationals in Game 1, for the Dodgers; while the Nationals go with Stephen Strasburg, who shut the Dodgers down in Game 2. We have Clayton Kershaw available in the bullpen, not to mention Joe Kelly and Kenley Jansen, neither of whom pitched in Game 4. SoSG AC and Dusty will be at the Stadium tonight to watch us win and advance.

Clench those sphincters. It's gonna be crazy tonight at the Stadium.

Go Dodgers!

UPDATE 10.30a: I just had a vision. Corey Seager is going to hit a big HR tonight that will be meaningful to the game's outcome. It's going to happen.

But of trouble for Walker.

QuadSevens said...

Big strikeout there!

spank said...

Buehler like a G

QuadSevens said...

Nats finally break through. 3-1 mid sixth.

Orel said...

How about some goddamn insurance Cody

Orel said...

It's a start

QuadSevens said...

Another stolen base for Cody. Let’s go Seager!!

QuadSevens said...

Damn! Stranded Cody again.

QuadSevens said...

My Mom is watching the game and asked if we playing against Walgreens. Never noticed how close the logos are!

QuadSevens said...

How similar I should say.

QuadSevens said...

Anyways, back to this one. 3-1 in the seventh.

QuadSevens said...

Suzuki hit by the pitch and down hard. Might have got him in the face.

QuadSevens said...

Hit his wrist then deflected to his face or helmet. Ouch.

QuadSevens said...

Suzuki is leaving the game and heading down the tunnel.

Orel said...

Time to pull Buehler, Doc!

spank said...

that shift was giving me a heart attack

spank said...

Kershaw in and that's a wrap

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw coming in with two on and two out.

Orel said...

Yikes

Orel said...

WHEW

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw with a 3 pitch K!

spank said...

i shit myself

QuadSevens said...

With the double switch, Kershaw is pitching the 8th too I think.

spank said...

bats on holiday now

QuadSevens said...

Top of the eighth. Still 3-1. Gotta hold ‘em here.

Orel said...

WELP

QuadSevens said...

My last comment did not age well.

Dave said...

Let's just get this offense going.

Orel said...

Just like Kershaw!

QuadSevens said...

JT HBP. Rally time!

Orel said...

Cody just spraying them off

Orel said...

Nope

Orel said...

FUCK

QuadSevens said...

Shit! Tied to start the ninth.

QuadSevens said...

Joe Kelly in now. As if our hearts needed a jolt.

QuadSevens said...

One down!

QuadSevens said...

Two down!

Orel said...

Kelly looks...good?

QuadSevens said...

1-2-3 for Joe Kelly. Let’s walk it off!

QuadSevens said...

I’m just as surprised as you are Orel.

Dave said...

At this point I'd trust Kelly more than Kershaw.

spank said...

WAKE THE FUCK UP,NIGHT MOVES! SACK UP

spank said...

Kershaw needs to get off his ass and cheer his team on. he's still the leader

Orel said...

Corey is so fucking bad

QuadSevens said...

Seager and Pollack both have been offensive black holes.

QuadSevens said...

Smith almost ended it! Damn!

spank said...

dammit

Orel said...

Feels like a loss

QuadSevens said...

Extra innings. This is insane!

QuadSevens said...

I hope it can be used as part of a post series winning thread.

Orel said...

IBB to load the bases. Uh-oh.

QuadSevens said...

That is a rough way to go out.
