Daniel Hudson gets the final out to send Nationals to World Series

The National defeated the Cardinals, 7-4, to advance to the World Series for the first time in the franchise's history.

The Yankees, off since Monday after sweeping Minnesota in the other AL Division series, will go with James Paxton for Game 2 and Luis Severino for Game 3 in NY on Tuesday night.

"That's huge for us that we get to start the ALCS here", Altuve said.

Meanwhile, the Nationals continue to find new ways to amaze by the week when taking into consideration they not only swept the Cardinals the NLCS, but also survived the Atlanta Braves in a tough five-game series along with defeating the Milwaukee Brewers in the Wild Card game. Then came this lopsided dismissal of the Cardinals, who were outscored 20-6 in the series.

The Washington Nationals have the support of another champion in town. Strasburg, who has quietly dominated in the postseason throughout his career, struck out 12 Cardinals in Game 3 and allowed no earned runs. In 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017, the Nationals fell in the division series, losing a winner-take-all Game 5 in three of their four series losses.

Hudson finished things with a 1-2-3 ninth, getting Tommy Edman on a fly ball to center field to end it. Players ran out of the dugout to meet in the center of the diamond while red fireworks went off around the stadium.

Corbin got this evening started with a 1-2-3 top of the first, striking out all three Cardinals with a high, 95 miles per hour fastball, a real contrast to the off-speed stuff Stephen Strasburg used for his own dozen Ks a night earlier.

Raiders' Trent Brown faces a civil lawsuit for domestic violence allegations
In the lawsuit, she says the attacks left her "bruised, bloodied, and battered", and caused her to live in fear of him. Brown said on Twitter that he is aware of the lawsuit and that "I deny the claims".

With a man on second and the tying run in the on-deck circle, Corbin came through, striking out St. Louis' 3-4 hitters, Paul Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna, with sliders.

Rightfully so, it was easy to understand the hype in Philadelphia following the signing of Harper since this seemed like the big free agency move fans had patiently been waiting for to help their beloved team become a serious contender in the National League once again. And dating to the final week of the regular season, Washington has won 16 of its past 18 games.

"You only learn how to win through mistakes and failures", Kendrick said.

Cardinals: Their next game will come in spring training, an exhibition at home in Jupiter, Florida, on February 22.

After the former NL Cy Young victor and midseason acquisition starts Game 1 on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park, the Astros will follow with Justin Verlander, a former AL Cy Young victor, and then Gerrit Cole after his two dominating starts in the AL Division Series against Tampa Bay.

The Astros' righty was bad in his Game 3 start on the road to the Rays, a 10-3 loss for the Astros.

Though both NY and Houston would enter the World Series as favorites, the additional rest that the Nationals earned by sweeping St. Louis could be crucial.
