In a game that featured ridiculous relief work from both sides, it was a starting pitcher who gave up the last run of the game. Jayson Werth took a 3-2 fastball from Lance Lynn and drove it into the left-field stands, sending the Nationals to Game 5 of the National League Division Series on Friday.
Werth took two called strikes before working the count full, and he ended up getting 13 pitches out of Lynn, seeing a steady diet of fastballs and curveballs. Lynn, who usually works in the low-to-mid 90s as a starter, was throwing 96 and 97 in relief, but Werth fouled off seven pitches before getting a hold of the game-winner.
Drew Storen gets the win in relief for the Nats, as he pitched a scoreless top of the ninth. The Nationals' bullpen did not allow a hit in three innings, walking two and striking out eight batters.
