With the Washington Nationals late innings comeback win over Josh Hader and the Milwaukee Brewers, the Dodgers opponent in the NLDS became set. Moreover, Thursday’s game time at Dodger Stadium became set.
Game 1 of the NLDS is set.
It will be Dodgers vs. Nationals at Dodger Stadium on Thursday.
First pitch: 5:37 p.m. PT.

Strangely, there were two start time options based on whether LA played Milwaukee or Washington.
Now, first pitch will be at 5:37pm at Dodger Stadium on Thursday evening. Moreover, Friday’s start time became official as well. That game will begin at 6:37pm. Both times are PST.
Earlier on Tuesday our Daniel Preciado previewed the Washington Nationals ahead of the Wild Card game. However, not only did manager Dave Martinez have to burn ace starter Max Scherzer to begin the game, he also turned to co-ace Stephen Strasburg for 3 innings.
With that, Washington’s game 1 starter will likely be former Diamondback (and “Dodger killer”) Patrick Corbin.
The Dodgers have yet to announce their game 1 starter.
