Nationals C Kurt Suzuki exits NLDS after fastball hits wrist, face

We got to win a game’ Walker Buehler embraces task of saving Dodgers’ season

Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki was forced to leave Wednesday's Game 5 after being hit in the face off a pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers starter Walker Buehler in the seventh inning. Just ask the New York Mets, who saw the Nationals overcome a six-run, 9th-inning deficit with a seven-run frame on September 3.

But now that he's back on regular rest after his Game 2 win can Stephen Strasburg defeat the Dodgers' two best arms, win his second game of the series, and help the Nationals upend the NL favorite? Kershaw, if you weren't aware, has a reputation for not being able to deliver in the postseason (career 4.33 playoff ERA) despite being one of the greatest starting pitchers of all time.

Kershaw gave up back-to-back homers to Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto, respectively. It also gave us this photo.

Non-LA fans around the world got a kick out of the Dodgers losing in the NLDS following consecutive World Series disappointments, particularly because of the manner in which it happened.
