With a victory tonight, the Nationals would ensure a 4-5 finish to their road trip at worst, which would be a perfectly acceptable result — if they tread water on the road and take care of business at home, they’ll win the National League East. But to win tonight, they’ll need to beat Clayton Kershaw. In his career against the Nationals, Kershaw is 6-2 with a 2.79 ERA. Doug Fister will provide a test for the Dodgers himself. It’s a pitching matchup worth staying up for. Talk about the game right here.
