Nationals crush Dodgers hopes with 10th inning grand slam home run
Dodgers fans are crushed this morning. They can’t believe what they saw last night. Washington hit two homers in the 8th to tie it and then Howie Kendrick, a former Dodger, hit a grand slam home run in the top of the 10th to win the National League Division Series 7-3…
Los Angeles had built an early 3-nothing lead on Max Muncy’s 2-run home run in the 1st and Enrique Hernandez’s solo shot in the 2nd. Walker Buehler cruised through 6-and-two-thirds, allowing 1-run on 4-hits with 7-strikeouts.
But then came the top of the 8th. Being an elimination game with the season on the line, Dodger manager Dave Roberts brought Clayton Kershaw out of the bullpen. He got the final out in the 7th before giving up back-to-back home runs to Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto in the 8th. The lead was gone and so too was Kershaw.
The Nationals loaded the bases in the 10th on a leadoff walk to Adam Eaton, a ground rule double by Anthony Rendon and an intentional walk to Juan Soto. Kendrick’s grand slam came off Joe Kelly on an oh-one pitch. The fans began leaving Dodger Stadium before the final out could be recorded in the top of the 10th, let alone Los Angeles’ at-bat in the bottom half of the inning.
Washington will travel to St. Louis for Game 1 of the National League Championship Series Friday at 5:08 on TBS.
The Cardinals left no doubt that they’d win Wednesday by scoring a record 10-runs in the first inning to beat Atlanta 13-to-1. 14-men came to the plate for St. Louis in an inning no one had ever seen in Major League post-season history. The Cards had five players with two RBI’s as St. Louis advanced to its 14th NLCS.
The final Division Series will be settled today in Game 5 of the American League matchup between Tampa Bay and Houston. The Rays will start Tyler Glasnow while the Astros will counter with Gerrit Cole. First pitch at Minute Maid Park is at 4:07 on FS1.
