WSH Vs STL – Hot Take

The underdogs prevailed in the National League Division Series with the St. Louis Cardinals taking down the 97-win Atlanta Braves and the wild-card Washington Nationals overcoming the 106-win Los Angeles Dodgers, both in five games. The Cardinals, who won the NL Central, will serve as the home team and host the Nationals in Game 1 of the NL Championship Series on Friday.

St. Louis took the drama out of Game 5 of the NLDS with a 10-run first inning and cruised to a 13-1 victory, taking the first step of what it believes will be a long journey in the postseason. “That’s what this organization’s all about,” Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt told reporters. “The tradition has been set by the guys way before me. That’s what the fans expect. Ownership, front office, players and coaches. That’s awesome. That’s what you want. That’s what we want to do. It’s just taking it step by step.”

Washington was all about drama in Game 5 against the Dodgers, slugging back-to-back homers off Clayton Kershaw to tie the game in the eighth inning before Howie Kendrick’s grand slam in the 10th provided the winning margin in the 7-3 triumph. “I’m really excited, one, for the boys in that clubhouse that fought all year,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez told reporters. “As you all know, we were 19-31 at one point and turned this thing around. So, I’ve said this all year long, that these guys, this group is resilient, they won’t quit until the last out, and they play hard every single day.”
