NLDS Pre-Gamin’: Nationals v. Giants (4:00 CT), Dodgers v. Cardinals (8:00 CT)


busch stadiumThe Dodgers and Nationals will try to survive for one more game today. Don Mattingly has already made some headlines by deciding to bench Yasiel Puig for tonight’s game, presumably because of his recent (minuscule sample) strikeout woes. He better hope Andre Ethier has a huge game, or the second-guessing will be deafening all offseason long.
