National League Division Series … Game Four … October 11, 2017 … Wrigley Field
RHP Stephen Strasburg (0-0, 0.00) vs. RHP Jake Arrieta (0-0, 0.00)

Game 4 of the NLDS was rained out Tuesday evening and has been rescheduled for this afternoon at 4:08 p.m. The game will air on TBS. Despite the rainout, the Nationals experienced some drama when word that Stephen Strasburg would sit out Game 4 so as not to break his routine. Many differing reports came out from Strasburg actually dealing with flu-like symptoms to feeling sick from mold. But Wednesday, Dusty Baker tabbed Strasburg as the starter instead of Tanner Roark.

The Indians will look to finish this series off once and for all, but will be facing a pesky Yankees team that has come back to even the series after being on the brink of elimination. The Bronx Bombers will give the veteran C.C. Sabathia the nod, who will be opposed by Cy Young favorite Corey Kluber.
