The Nationals won a do-or-die game yesterday, no small achievement. But all that did was set the stage for another do-or-die game tonight, in which a win would only ensure one final do-or-die game Thursday in D.C.
Bryce Harper's titanic shot Monday, his third career postseason homer, put the Nationals slugger in some elite company.
With another elimination game in store, the Nationals turn to lefty Gio Gonzalez.
Drew Storen put himself in another jam Monday, but the Nationals closer pitched his way out of it and closed out a huge Game 3 victory.
