Nationals drop first NLDS game in 6-0 loss
The Washington Nationals fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers last night in a 6-0 loss in the first game of the NLDS. Patrick Corbin threw six innings that ended with three hits, two runs (one earned run), five walks, and nine strikeouts. In relief, Tanner Rainey, Fernando Rodney, and Hunter Strickland provided no alleviation as the Dodgers had the upper hand on offense. The Dodgers’ pitching, notably with starter Walker Buehler, proved to be strong and effective against the Nationals in the first of five critical playoff games.
Tonight, the two teams will meet again for Game 2. Stephen Strasburg will take on Clayton Kershaw in a grand primetime matchup. First pitch is scheduled for 9:37 p.m. ET, and the game will be broadcasted on TBS.
