We didn’t have to wait long to find out who’s starting Game 5 of the NLDS for the Nationals and Dodgers. Max Scherzer is going for the Nats, MASN’s Dan Kolko reports. Scherzer said, “Biggest start of my career. Biggest start of my life.”

Scherzer, a candidate for the National League Cy Young Award, went six innings in Game 1 against the Dodgers, giving up four runs over six innings.

Rich Hill will start for the Dodgers, Andy McCullough of The Los Angeles Times reports. Hill lasted only 4 1/3 innings in Game 2, yielding four runs.
