Brewers vs. Nationals, 5:08 PM PDT, TV: TBS
The visiting Brewers send RHP Brandon Woodruff out to the Nationals Park mound to face Washington’s RHP Max Scherzer. The Brewers were 18-4 in games Woodruff started this season, but he’s just back from an oblique injury which caused him to miss six weeks in August and September and isn’t expected to go more than two or three innings. Fortunately for the Brewers, their bullpen has been very good this year. Scherzer has had nagging injuries in the second half of the year and missed much of August. He’s 0-2 with a 3.72 ERA in four postseason starts with the Nats, who have never won a postseason series. They did, however, end the season on an eight-game winning streak, which tops even the Dodgers’ season-ending streak of seven, so they’re hot.
