It’s game time — and go time — for the Nationals and the Dodgers! With the NLDS series tied at 1-1, Game 3 is an important one for the teams as they hope to get a leg up on their opponent. Don’t miss a second of the game with a live stream right here!
This game was actually supposed to be Game 4, as the Oct. 8 match (Game 2) was postponed and pushed back the play schedule for the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers. Unfortunately because of the postponement, the game is only playing on MLB Network, so you’ll have to use MLB.tv to access the game — but that means you also get ALL of the other games in the postseason, so it’s definitely not a bad deal! The action kicks off at 4:08 p.m. ET, so better jump on that MLB.tv package fast! CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE NATIONALS VS. DODGERS LIVE STREAM.
The Dodgers/Nationals series is proving to be one of the best of the 2016 postseason, as it’s the only series that is tied after two games. Although Game 2 wasn’t very close, with the Nationals winning 5-2, the first game was a fight to the finish, with the Dodgers ultimately coming out on top 4-3. With a fairly even pitching matchup for Game 3 — Gio Gonzalez is taking the mound for the Nationals and Kenta Maeda for the Dodgers — this is sure to be another awesome game!
Gio actually had his worst regular season with the Nationals yet this year, so he’ll be ready to strike back with a vengeance in his first postseason start. Kenta won’t be letting that get to him, though, as he’s been one of the Dodgers’ bullpen’s most consistent pitchers of the season. Talk about an intense pitching battle!
As for the other players, the Dodgers better watch out for Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy. The LA squad may be on their home turf now, but just like last season with the New York Mets, Daniel’s bat is on fire. But the Dodgers’ Howie Kendrick and Carlos Ruiz have pretty decent averages when hitting against Gio, so we may just see some back and forth hits! We definitely can’t wait to see who takes the NLDS series to 2-1 today!
