Morning Briefing: Nats on the Brink of Being Swatted

Tonight, game four of the NLDS will go down in Chicago. The Nationals are down to their last breath and will send Tanner Roark (perhaps Stephen Strasburg) to save them. Jake Arrieta will pitch for Chicago at 5:38 p.m. on TBS.

Last night, the Astros eliminated the Red Sox after Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel could not hold on to a late lead. John Farrell seems like he will be on the move making Boston another managerial destination. The Yankees tied up the series last night against the Indians. The Yankees will look to win game five behind C.C. Sabathia. The Nationals were cruising behind a dominant Max Scherzer before they pulled him. The bullpen gave up two and lost 2-1. The Dodgers won and will move on to the NLCS.
