Dodger Stadium will play host to a winner-take-all Game Five between the Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. On Monday, three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer gave up just one run over seven solid innings to lead Washington to a 6-1 home victory. Ryan Zimmerman’s three-run shot in the fifth inning was all the offense that the Nationals needed.

Thirty-one year old righty Stephen Strasburg (18-6 3.32 ERA) will head to the hill for the Nationals in this contest. In Game Two, Strasburg struck out ten batters and allowed one run in six innings to pitch Washington to a 4-2 road victory.

The Los Angeles Dodgers won a National League best 59 home games during the regular season and have Washington right where they want them. In Game Four, Los Angeles managed just five hits and went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Justin Turner’s solo shot in the first inning was the only offense on the night for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers will turn to talented right-hander Walker Buehler (14-4 3.26 ERA) in the series finale. In Game One, Buehler allowed just one hit and struck out eight batters across six frames during a 6-0 home victory.
