Your guide to Thursday’s Game 5: Winner gets the Dodgers!

8:00 AM ET

We ended up with a pretty good round of Division Series. Two series go five games, thanks to Stephen Strasburg‘s gem on a drizzly Wednesday at Wrigley. We had a 13-inning game in the Cleveland Indians-New York Yankees series, a couple of tense pitching duels, a little too much sloppy defense, Jose Altuve‘s three-homer game, Chris Sale and Justin Verlander battling each other in relief and one controversial case of mold sickness. I’d give the round a B-minus, with the potential to go higher if we get a classic Thursday night.

The most important thing of the day: Will Max Scherzer be available for the Nationals, and for how many pitches? We know managers love to concentrate as many innings as possible in their best pitchers — witness Joe Maddon using Jon Lester for 3.2 innings in Game 4 — especially in a do-or-die game. Scherzer would be pitching on two days of rest after throwing 98 pitches in Game 3.
