NLCS surprise: Top 2 teams out, leaving Cards vs Nats

With the top teams out of the mix, it’s on to a most unlikely matchup in the NL Championship Series. The St. Louis Cardinals are back in the NLCS for the first time since 2014 after a stunner of an inning in Atlanta. They’ll face the Washington Nationals, who dispatched their playoff demons with an upset of the 106-win Dodgers.

Stephen Strasburg vs. Walker Buehler as Nats, Dodgers decide NLDS in Game 5

Stephen Strasburg’s 2012 shutdown is a distant memory by now. This sort of setting and stakes – Game 5 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, with the outcome of the NL Division Series on the line – is exactly why the Washington Nationals protected the pitcher they drafted No. 1 overall all those years ago.

Seven 2-out runs in sixth inning lift Dodgers past Nationals

Justin Turner’s homer capped a startling and record-setting seven-run rally in the sixth inning as the Dodgers roughed up starter-turned-reliever Patrick Corbin, and Los Angeles beat Washington 10-4 for a 2-1 lead in their NL Division Series.

Max Scherzer will start NL wild-card game for Nationals

The Nationals don’t know which team they’ll face in the NL wild-card game or where it will be played, but they do know this: Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer will be their starting pitcher.

From 12 games under to 10 over, Nats lead NL wild-card race

Right now, 19-31 is just a distant memory for the Washington Nationals. Even without Max Scherzer for all but one game over the past month-plus, even with recurring bullpen issues, even though they dug themselves quite a hole, the Nationals are suddenly 65-55 – 10 games over .500 for the first time in 14 months.

Nationals ace Max Scherzer declares himself ready to return

Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer says he is ready to get in a game for the Washington Nationals and come off the injured list. Scherzer played catch at Nationals Park a day after throwing the equivalent of about two innings in a simulated game. He said he’s able to return to action following a back muscle problem and doesn’t want to go to the minors for a rehab start. Manager Dave Martinez said he still needed to speak to Scherzer and a trainer before deciding on his ace’s status.

AP source: Greg Holland, Nats agree in principle on minors deal

A person familiar with the deal says right-handed reliever Greg Holland and the Washington Nationals have an agreement in principle on a minor league contract. The deal is pending the completion of a successful physical exam. The 33-year-old Holland was designated for assignment by the Arizona Diamondbacks last week. He appeared in 24 games for Washington last season. Holland is a three-time All-Star who led the National League in saves in 2017 with 41 for the Colorado Rockies.
