Dodgers top Nationals again

The Dodgers haven’t done much winning lately, but it seems like they might be back on track. On Saturday, they took the second of a three-game set against the Nationals, thereby ensuring a series win in a possible NLCS preview.

Unlike Friday’s 7-0 victory, Saturday’s win was a tight 3-2 affair. The Dodgers received a solid start from
Rich Hill
, who held the Nationals to one run (an
Anthony Rendon
homer) over five innings. That was the only hit Hill allowed, though he did walk two batters. He also struck out seven before giving way to the bullpen.

Josh Fields
Brandon Morrow
Ross Stripling
Tony Watson
, and
Kenley Jansen
combined for four innings, over which they allowed three hits and a run while striking out two and maintaining the lead.

Offensively, the Dodgers were paced by
Chase Utley
Cody Bellinger
, or the right side of their infield. Utley and Bellinger notched two hits apiece, with Bellinger also driving in two of the Dodgers’ runs — one via his 38th home run of the season, another on a single to left.

Quick hits

  • The Padres’ competitive hopes are officially dashed for the season, but manager Andy Green provides reason for hope.
  • The Reds won’t pitch rookie right-hander
