PECOTA Odds and NLDS Game 5 Preview
Last night’s NLDS Game 4 was a compelling affair, from the last-minute change to Stephen Strasburg—and, well, Strasburg’s stellar last-minute change(up)—to the improbable Michael Taylor dinger to the even-more-improbable Jon Lester pickoff of Ryan Zimmerman. Tonight we’ll get our second Game 5 of the playoffs, as the Nationals seek to slough off the indignity of another early exit while the Cubs seek to prevent 2017 from turning into something of a disappointment.
The winner gets the “prize” of taking on the dominant-then-bad-then-dominant-again Dodgers in a few days.
Chicago Cubs (Kyle Hendricks) at Washington Nationals (Gio Gonzalez), 8:08 PM ET
