This. Dodgers with multiple 100-win seasons and then choke in the Playoffs. Personally I don’t think that effectively making the playoffs in August helps them in October. Playing for weeks (months?) with no real pressure has to have an effect on their bottle.

Looks like Astros are thru already after only 10 pitches for Glasnow in the 1st!

I was rooting for TB so disappointed in the result but On the bright side, the Yankees/Astros match up is going to be great.

All kinds of articles this a.m. about how Glasnow was tipping his pitches. Oh well. See you in 2020, Tyler.

Hey, I thought this Nats bullpen was supposed to be dodgy!

Although having your starter go 7 no hit innings helps I suppose.

It was impressive alright. Sanchez can do this, and a hot pitcher in the offseason can make all the difference. Cf: 1988 Dodgers&Orel Hershisher (who was beyond hot to the point of unconscious out there. Mike Scott 1986 too.)

18 innings, 1 run is pretty damn impressive from the Nats.

Houston Astros, 0 runs scored. Must be a long time since that happened in a game I reckon.

Some performance alright. I was wondering if the Nats make the World Series would Bryce Harper regret leaving them. But a 330 million contract does will soften the blow a bit

Nats peaking at the right time. Corbin for the win tonight.
Impressive, and they'll be well rested, whether that's actually a thing or not in the playoffs.

Only one team (95 Braves) went onto win WS after sweeping either NLCS or ALCS since it changed to best-of-7 in 1985.

Nice start to this game.

Whoever loses this game is going to be cursing the amount of men left on base. And it's only been 2 innings!
