Dodgers Seek To Regain Division Series Lead

LOS ANGELES ( — The Los Angeles Dodgers will seek to regain the lead Monday in their National League Division Series home game against the Washington Nationals.

The Nationals tied the best-of-five series at one game apiece with a 5-2 victory in Game 2 Sunday.

The Dodgers were 4-3 winners in Game 1 on Friday. Game 2 was originally scheduled for Saturday, but postponed due to rain.

Kenta Maeda will pitch for the Dodgers against Washington’s Gio Gonzalez.

Maeda was 16-11 with a 3.48 ERA in his first season in Major League Baseball. He will be facing the Nationals for the first time.

Gonzalez was 11-11 with a 4.57 ERA during the regular season. He allowed three hits and one run over six innings in his only appearance against the Dodgers on July 20.

Dodger pitcher broadcaster Orel Hershiser will throw the ceremonial first pitch at 1:08 p.m. to Steve Sax, a teammate with the 1988 World Series champion Dodgers.

A limited number of tickets for the game remain available, and can be purchased online.
