Almost time for the first pitch as the Nationals and Dodgers will square off for the fifth and final time. Someone's season will end tonight.

Dodgers last reached the NLCS in 2013, losing in the NLDS in the 2 years since.

Nationals looking for their first NLCS since moving to Washington. The franchise last reached the NLCS way back in 1981 when they were the Montreal Expos.

Utley leads off the game for Los Angeles. Makes good contact on a fly ball to left-center that hangs up long enough for Turner to make a diving catch. 1 OUT

Seager up next and he grounds out softly to Murphy at 2nd base. 2 OUT

Turner is up and he has been hot all series, so Washington is probably happy his first AB is with the bases empty. He is batting 5-for-11 in this series and also got on base with 4 other BBs.

He hits a hard grounder but its right at the SS Espinosa, who throws him out for OUT #3. Easy inning for Scherzer. MID 1

That was the first time Los Angeles failed to score in the first inning all series.

Turner leads off for the Nats, and he hits a come-backer to Hill, who misses it with his glove but hits his throwing hand. Turner out at first. 1 OUT

Trainers came out and Hill threw a couple of pitches to make sure his hand is okay, which it is and he will stay in the game
