Cardinals take on Washington Nationals for NLCS games 1 and 2

MLB roundup: Cards, Nats force Game 5s

The Washington Nationals will be making their first appearance in the NLCS since the franchise relocated from Montreal following the 2004 season when they visit the St. Louis Cardinals for Game 1 on Friday night as +105 underdogs (8:08 PM ET, Oct. 11th).

Gleyber Torres homered and doubled twice, and Cameron Maybin also hit a home run as the New York Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins in the American League Division Series with a 5-1 victory on Monday night in Minneapolis.

If you still want to party but don't necessarily feel like buying a ticket? It's Mikolas in Game 1 against the Nationals in St. Louis and Adam Wainwright in Game 2.

Game 5 will be Wednesday in Los Angeles, with Stephen Strasburg set to start for the Nationals against Walker Buehler.


The Kendrick lightning strike, the biggest and grandest moment of the Nationals' 15-season. Ji-Man Choi, Brandon Lowe and Willy Adames hit solo homers for Tampa Bay, which pounded Astros starter Zack Greinke for six runs in 3 2/3 innings. The Cardinals wound up losing when the Braves scored three runs in the ninth.

Cardinals manager Mike Shildt announced his starters for the first four games of the NL Championship Series on Thursday. The offense has been wildly inconsistent during that stretch, scoring three or fewer runs on seven occasions, but also scoring nine or more runs in three of five shutout victories during that stretch. The visiting Nationals will send veteran Aníbal Sánchez to the hill to oppose Miles Mikolas, per MLB.com's Jamal Collier and Anne Rogers, respectively.

Chad Green (1-0), one of six pitchers used by NY on Monday, picked up the win with 1 1/3 shutout innings of relief.

Mikolas got a no-decision in Game 1 of the NLDS against the Braves, allowing one run in five innings of a game St. Louis won 7-6. Anibal Sanchez struggled in his 1 start against the Saint Louis Cardinals during the 2019 season as he gave up 3 earned runs in 5 innings.
