Cubs-Nationals Postponed: NLDS Game 4 to Be Played Wednesday

Stephen Strasburg is set to start Wednesday's elimination game for the Washington Nationals, one night after the Nationals offered vague - and in one case inaccurate - explanations as to why he would not start.

The Cubs scored three runs in five innings against Gonzalez on home runs by Willson Contreras and Anthony Rizzo, but the Nationals scored five times in the eighth for a 6-3 win. The Nationals have yet to announce who will start Game 5, but you can expect to see Max Scherzer at some point on Thursday. Baker al+so said Strasburg would not be available and Tanner Roark would start. Cubs ace Kyle Hendricks will take the mound against the Nationals' Gio Gonzalez. The game was pushed back a day after a rainout on Tuesday, with the misty weather persistent throughout Game 4.

Arvind Kejriwal's blue Wagon R auto stolen
The blue WagonR often used by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was stolen from outside the Secretariat here on Thursday afternoon. Currently, an AAP volunteer Vandana belonging to party's media cell was using the auto , according to DCP (Central Delhi ).


The victor of the Cubs-Nationals series will face off against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS. While Gonzalez hasn't pitched out of the bullpen since 2009, Roark has considerable experience in relief. The right-handed pitcher threw seven scoreless innings, striking out 12 and only allowing three hits. He yielded two runs in an inning against the Pirates. If Maddon opts for a righty-heavy starting lineup, what happens if Washington brings in Roark or Scherzer, both right-handers, in, say, the fourth or fifth inning? The Nationals, on paper, have the bullpen advantage in Game 5.
