How to Watch Cubs vs. Nationals

"Didn't do too well", Nationals manager Dusty Baker said, "so I'm sure redemption is on his mind".

Because the Nationals did not make Strasburg available Tuesday and did not otherwise publicly clarify the situation, the illness prompted national speculation about whether Strasburg might not have been willing to pitch - even with the season on the line - if he felt less than 100%. Baker then offered a curious explanation in which he cited the weather, air conditioning at their hotel and this being the "time of the year for mold around Chicago" for Strasburg and some Nationals being under the weather.

"We have full confidence in Tanner", Baker said.

Appeals court rules against Elliott, clears way for suspension
Bad news for the Dallas Cowboys . a federal appeals court has ruled Ezekiel Elliott's 6-game suspension is back on. The second-year running back out of Ohio State has recorded 424 all-purpose yards and scored three touchdowns.

On Tuesday, the teams took batting practice and the grounds crew got the field ready before bringing out the tarp.

After clamors of not being able to put enough runs on the board in the postseason, Taylor delivered and gave the Nationals one more chance to advance to their first-ever NLCS appearance. The Cubs hold a 2-1 series lead. There is rain in the forecast for early in the day. They lost in four games to the San Francisco Giants in 2014, then lost another Game 5 at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers previous year.

Hurricane Ophelia meandering in the Atlantic
It is expected to make a close approach to the Azores as a Category 1 hurricane, though a direct landfall doesn't appear likely. Forecasters predict that Ireland, Northern Ireland and western portions of Britain will likely bear the brunt of Ophelia.

In yet another unpredictable turn in the saga of Stephen Strasburg, the Washington Nationals will start their $175 million ace in Wednesday's Game 4 of the National League Division Series against the Chicago Cubs.
