Clayton Kershaw (C) of the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates with teammate Carlos Ruiz (R) after winning Game 5 of the National League Division Series over the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington Thursday. He got Murphy to pop up and then struck out Wilmer Difo to end the game.
Kershaw was pitching two days after going 6 2/3 innings in Game 4.

After winning a grueling five-game NLDS against the Washington Nationals, L.A. gets one day off before taking on the Chicago Cubs, who ran away with the best record in Major League Baseball this regular season.

"No, I didn't think about pulling him then", Baker said. He brought a ideal game into the fifth inning, but that was ended when Josh Reddick led off the inning with a single to right field.

His biggest of which came with the bases loaded and the Nationals trailing by one run in the seventhinning.
The tension escalated when in the eight innings Chris Heisey pulled two runs which left the Nationals just one run behind the Dodgers. Then Kershaw came on to close for the closer two days after he started Game 4 on Tuesday on short rest. Scherzer, who allowed the most home runs in the NL during the regular season, watched Pederson crush a fastball on his 99th pitch of the game over the left field wall to tie the game at one. Washington won the NL East each of those years but has yet to advance beyond the opening round of the playoffs.
"Kenley wanted the ball in the ninth, but when the first guy got on I saw Kershaw was in the pen", Turner said of that inning.
In came Jansen, the Dodgers' closer, to record as numerous final nine outs as he could - something he'd never attempted in his life. "It gives me a lot of respect for closers - you're doing that 75 times a year". While the ending wasn't almost as dramatic as the movie - Ken Griffey Jr. robbed Collins of a walk-off home run - it was still a must-see, edge-of-the-seat moment.
