It all comes down to this. The Nationals are playing a decisive game five in the NLDS for the fourth time in five appearances dating back to 2012. They have been unsuccessful each and every time, so they’re trying to change that by upsetting the Dodgers tonight in Los Angeles. The Dodgers are looking to advance into the NLCS for a third consecutive year. They lost in the World Series in each of the past two seasons. Expectations are high and anything less than a championship will be considered a disappointment.

Here are your starting lineups for Game 5. First pitch is scheduled for 8:37 PM ET.

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.

The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.

The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.

Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
