Dodgers vs Nationals Live

Dodgers vs Nationals Live: Dodgers vs Nationals Live Stream The Los Angeles Dodgers will host the Washington Nationals in a decisive Game 5 of the 2019 National League Division Series on Wednesday. The Dodgers, who finished first in the NL West at 106-56, are seeking their fourth straight NLCS. The Nationals, second in the NL East at 93-69, are shooting for just their second NLCS appearance. First pitch from Dodger Stadium is set for 8:37 p.m. ET, and this is the third time the franchises have met in the postseason

The Washington Nationals weren’t even a .500 baseball team and the Los Angeles Dodgers were running away with the National League, a wise executive looked at the landscape of the league and offered a prediction. “The only thing that’s going to stop the Dodgers,” he said, “is the Nationals in a short series.”

The nightmare scenario of a first-round playoff loss has not come to fruition, not entirely, and yet after Washington’s 6-1 victory in Game 4 that sent their NL Division Series back to Dodger Stadium for a win-or-go-home Game 5 on Wednesday, it felt awfully prescient. Any team, even one as consistently excellent as the 106-win Dodgers, is vulnerable when facing the sort of elite starting pitching the Nationals possess. That truth is exacerbated even more by the unforgiving nature of a five-game series.

Major league baseball’s postseason is the scorpion-and-frog parable come to life. In an ideal playoff for the league, the best teams — that is, those whose 162-game excellence lent credence to the importance of the regular season and proved a superior level of talent and execution — would advance. It is against MLB’s interest for the Dodgers, a star brand in the country’s second-biggest media market, to lose. The playoffs don’t care. This is their nature.

Which, for the Dodgers, led to a long flight home early Tuesday morning. If a five-game series is unrelenting, a one-game series, which is essentially what they now face, is even more fraught with peril. There is, quite literally, no room for error(s). One can end a season. All 27 outs carry extreme value. Especially when the opposing pitcher is Stephen Strasburg.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will host the Washington Nationals in a decisive Game 5 of the 2019 National League Division Series on Wednesday. The Dodgers, who finished first in the NL West at 106-56, are seeking their fourth straight NLCS. The Nationals, second in the NL East at 93-69, are shooting for just their second NLCS appearance. First pitch from Dodger Stadium is set for 8:37 p.m. ET, and this is the third time the franchises have met in the postseason. The latest Dodgers vs. Nationals odds show Los Angeles favored at -149 on the money line (risk $149 to win $100), while the over-under for total runs scored is seven. Before making any Nationals vs. Dodgers picks of your own, look at the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, entered the first full week of the 2019 MLB Playoffs up over $1,100 for $100 players on top-rated MLB picks. The model was especially strong on top-rated money line picks this season, entering the week on a profitable 158-130 run. Anyone who has been following it is way up.

Now the model has dialed in on Dodgers vs. Nationals. We can tell you it’s leaning over, and it also says one side of the money line has all the value. You can only see that pick at SportsLine.

The model knows the Dodgers, who lead the all-time series 283-201, including a 157-84 advantage at Dodger Stadium, have made 36 postseason appearances and won 23 pennants. They have also won six World Series titles. Right-hander Walker Buehler (14-4, 3.26 ERA) will get the start for Los Angeles. He won Game 1, 6-0, going six innings, allowing one hit, while walking three and striking out eight. In his last six decisions including the playoffs, he is 5-1 with 49 strikeouts in 40 innings.

The Dodgers won the season series 4-3 and have won four of the last five season series against the Nationals. Third baseman Justin Turner enters the game with a six-game hitting streak. He is red-hot, going 6-for-18 with two doubles, two homers and five RBIs in the series.

But just because Los Angeles has had Washington’s number does not mean it is the best value on the Nationals vs. Dodgers money line.

That’s because the Nationals will be sending ace righty Stephen Strasburg (18-6, 3.32 ERA) to the mound. Strasburg has a 0.64 ERA in the postseason. In Game 2 of the 2019 NLDS, he held Los Angeles to one run in six innings with 10 strikeouts and no walks.

Offensively, Washington has four players who are hitting .333 or higher in the postseason, including shortstop Trea Turner, who is 6-for-17 in the series with three doubles. Third baseman Anthony Rendon is 4-for-12 in the series, including a three-RBI performance on Monday.
The Los Angeles Dodgers won 106 games during the regular season just so they could play a deciding game in the playoffs in front of their home fans.

That moment comes on Wednesday, when they host the Washington Nationals in Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

The Dodgers had a chance to close things out on the road, but the Nationals came through with a 6-1 victory Monday night to even the series at two games apiece.

“We were prepared to go all five,” rookie catcher Will Smith said as players filed out of a subdued Dodger clubhouse. “We’re still liking our chances.”

Braves vs Cardinals Live

Braves vs Cardinals Live: Braves vs Cardinals Live Stream The Saint Louis Cardinals are set to visit SunTrust Park in Atlanta, Georgia for game 5 of the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves. The Saint Louis Cardinals come into this matchup with a 2-2 record in this series, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent home game against the Atlanta Braves, 5-4 in 10 innings. Dakota Hudson received the starting nod for the Saint Louis Cardinals, and he had success as he gave up 1 earned run in 4.2 innings.

The Atlanta Braves on Monday were four outs away from clinching their National League Division Series in four games, a victory that would have done wonders for them — allowing them to reset their rotation to an optimum order for the next series and given achy hitters such as Freddie Freeman a few days to get well.

Instead, the Braves found themselves flying back to Atlanta on Monday night to prepare for Wednesday’s Game 5 against the St. Louis Cardinals. For that, they can blame their own failures, some exceptional relief work from the Cardinals’ bullpen and the cursed baseball fates — all of which ganged up on the Braves in a 5-4, 10-inning loss.

When it comes to the adage “Baseball is a funny game,” we can now quantify that, thanks to the wonders of Statcast and its exit-velocity readings.
In the ninth and 10th innings alone, the Braves made four outs on balls that left the bat at 100 mph or greater; this season, major league hitters batted .636 on balls with such an exit velocity. But the eighth-inning base hit that sent the game to extra innings, the single by Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina off the tip of Freeman’s glove at first base, clocked in at 63.4 mph — the third-lowest of the 49 batted balls Monday.

Two innings later, Molina drove in the winning run with a deep sacrifice fly to left (with an exit velo of 102.1 mph, for all of you Statcast nerds) off Braves right-hander Julio Teheran. Teheran, who had been added to the Braves’ roster in the aftermath of Chris Martin’s oblique injury in Game 1, wasn’t expected to see high-leverage innings — but bullpen ace Max Fried was unavailable after pitching in each of the first three games of the series, and Braves Manager Brian Snitker held back closer Mark Melancon for a potential save situation.
Jack Flaherty gets the ball and he’s the ace of the staff who should get some Cy Young support. Surely, Cardinals manager Mike Schildt will let Flaherty go as long as he can.

If Flaherty is able to go seven innings, I’d bet Shildt doesn’t mess too much with his formula and sticks with familiar late-inning guys like Andrew Miller, Giovanny Gallagos and, gulp, Carlos Martinez.

If the Braves somehow get to Flaherty early, an intriguing option arises. Adam Wainwright was brilliant in Game 3 and has a career 2.79 postseason ERA. His stuff is far diminished from when he was a Cy Young candidate, but I could see him working 2-3 strong innings to keep his team in the game with their backs against the wall. After all, this could well be his last game in the Cardinals uniform and he surely doesn’t want that to be the case. Even if his arm isn’t feeling good, he’s the type who could gut through something. Matt Carpenter, who did not start either games 1 or 2 of the National League Division Series at SunTrust Park, is expected to start Wednesday as manager Mike Shildt sticks with the lineup, or close to it, that won Game 4 at Busch Stadium. Against the pre-demotion Foltynewicz, Carpenter was three for 12 (.250) with four walks, a homer, and only two strikeouts. The Cardinals third baseman still is looking for his first hit as a starter in the best-of-five series, but he’s walked twice and provided a sacrifice fly. He’ll give Foltynewicz another lefty — a fourth lefthanded batter — to navigate around.

“It’s likely,” Shildt said of starting Carpenter. “Purpose being, look, we weren’t able to do much against Foltynewicz. And clearly we’ll need to be able to do both things — hold them and also score on our side. So we’re going to take our best shot when the game starts to do that and manage it from there.”

In his Game 2 victory at SunTrust, Foltynewicz had the Cardinals reaching for that slider throughout the game. He struck out seven in seven scoreless innings and started the streak of 17 consecutive innings without a walk by a Braves starter. Of his 81 pitches in that start, 38 were sliders. Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong called him a “different ‘Folty,’” and the previous one had struck out the Cardinals seven times in six innings without allowing an earned run on May 24.

That was before a run of poor starts forced the Braves to send the power righty to the minors for a rinse cycle. Soreness in his right elbow had limited him, kept him from reaching for his best slider. His assignment in the minors was to regain faith in it.

“Go down there, get your slider back,” Foltynewicz said Tuesday, recalling his return to Class AAA. “I was just a little hesitant. I think I was just messing with my mechanics a little bit. But when I got down there I realized we’re going to throw the heck out of this thing. We’re really going to execute it. We’re really going to get my mechanics in line, and just really drive through this pitch as best we can.”

The heavy reliance on his slider played well into how opponents have challenged the Cardinals for several months — veering from the fastball to off-speed pitches, trying to get the frustrated Cardinals with their frustrated offense to stray from the strike zone.

It worked well in Game 2. But getting that recent look should help, Shildt suggested.

“He threw a lot of good ones,” the Cardinals’ manager said. “We’ll need to be patient with getting a ball we can handle. Hopefully the little bit of familiarity of seeing it will help some of the guys. We’re just going to have to make sure we’re getting in better parts of the plate and then chasing it.”

Get a summary of the Azerbaijan vs Bahrain football match. Bahrain vs Azerbaijan Head to Head statistics for past results and team performance in Friendly International. Bahrain and Azerbaijan will face each other in a friendly game scheduled for Wednesday.

The two nations have met just twice in this century, with the most recent match dating back to 2012. Both games were friendlies and Azerbaijan came on top twice, winning the first 1:2 away from home, and comprehensively beating Bahrain 3:0 in the second. In total, both meetings featured over 2,5 goals, while only the first one witnessed goals at both ends.

China has reacted positively to Russia’s call for a regional coalition to ensure security in the Persian Gulf as the United States and Iran have pursued their own rival agendas there.

Moscow first introduced “the concept of providing collective security in the Persian Gulf area” in July as tensions between Washington and Tehran neared an all-out crisis. Russian President Vladimir Putin officially proposed Thursday that “a security and cooperation organization be created in the region almost from scratch.” He suggested that “Russia, China, the U.S., the EU, India and other interested countries could join as observers.”

Asked about this idea, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang declined to “offer a principled response before checking for more information” at a press conference Tuesday, but said Beijing was open to such considerations.

“China has been closely following the complex and sensitive situation in the Gulf region,” Geng added. “Safeguarding peace and stability in the region is in the shared interests of the international community. China welcomes all proposals and diplomatic efforts conducive to deescalating the situation in the Gulf region. We would also like to stay in communication with all relevant parties.”

Bahrain are undefeated in the regular time of their last eight matches, losing only to South Korea after extra-time in a game part of the Asian Cup. None of Bahrain’s last ten meetings was won by the side listed as hosts, as the visitors were victorious on six occasions and four times there was no winner. None of the teams involved in those 10 matches were able to score more than once, and understandably they all produced under 2,5 goals, while only three saw both nations scoring.
Azerbaijan are without a victory in their last seven outings, and recorded just two draws in the process. Despite their poor form, in their most recent game, the country managed to pull a surprise, as they earned a point from their home meeting with World Cup silver medalists from Croatia. Three of Azerbaijan’s last five encounters featured over 2,5 goals, while each of the last four witnessed goals at both ends.

Louisiana vs Appalachian State Live

Louisiana vs Appalachian State Live: Louisiana vs Appalachian State Live Stream The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns will host the Appalachian State Mountaineers in a clash between the top two teams in the Sun Belt Wednesday night from Cajun Field.The Appalachian State Mountaineers are a strong team that has looked great in all four wins. They won their lone road game by a 34-31 score against North Carolina of the ACC, and they opened conference play with a dominating 56-37 home win over Coastal Carolina two weeks ago before enjoying the bye week.

It’s a rematch of last year’s inaugural Sun Belt Conference title game when the Appalachian State Mountaineers visit the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns on Wednesday night. Louisiana-Lafayette boasts a balanced offense led by one of the top rushing attacks in the nation and is on a roll since losing its opener. The Ragin’ Cajuns ran roughshod over Georgia Southern in a 37-24 victory before getting last week off. The Mountaineers are 4-0 and boast a balanced offense of their own, with one of the conference’s top quarterbacks, an elite running back and opportunistic special teams. They also come off a bye week after pasting Coastal Carolina 56-37. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. ET at Cajun Stadium. The Ragin’ Cajuns are one-point favorites in the latest Appalachian State vs. Louisiana odds, while the over-under is 68. Before you lock in your Appalachian State vs. Louisiana-Lafayette picks, be sure to see the college football predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen huge returns. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of over $4,300 for $100 players on its top-rated college football against the spread picks.

The model enters Week 7 of the 2019 season on a strong run, going 68-42 on its top-rated college football picks. It also called Georgia (-27.5) covering against Tennessee and California (+21) easily staying well within the spread against Oregon last week. Anybody who has been following it is way up.

Now, it has simulated Appalachian State vs. Louisiana 10,000 times. We can tell you it’s leaning under, and it also says one side of the spread cashes in almost 70 percent of simulations. That one is only available at SportsLine.

The model knows the Ragin’ Cajuns average 540 yards and 44.4 points per game and boast a stellar rushing attack, led by a 1-2 punch of Trey Ragas and Elijah Mitchell behind a seasoned line. Ragas is 16th in the nation with 548 yards and averages 9.8 per carry, while Mitchell has nine touchdowns to go with his 402 yards on 67 carries.

Louisiana’s defense allows an average of 21.4 points and is tough against the pass, allowing 186.6 yards per game. Jacques Boudreaux anchors the middle for the Cajuns, leading the team with 33 tackles, including 12 in the last game. Louisiana-Lafayette is 5-0 against the spread in its past five games following a straight-up win.

But just because the Ragin’ Cajuns have one of the nation’s top offenses doesn’t mean they will cover the Appalachian State vs. Louisiana spread.

Appalachian State’s rushing offense puts up an average of 224.5 yards per game behind a veteran offensive line. Darrynton Evans has rushed for 471 yards, averaging 7.0 per carry, and is tied for fourth in the nation with 10 total touchdowns. Quarterback Zac Thomas has thrown for 802 yards and seven touchdowns

The Mountaineers also excel on special teams, ranking fourth in the nation with a 30.8-yard kick return average and seventh in punt returns at 17.9. The Mountaineers also have blocked three kicks, including a field goal on the final play of a 34-31 win against North Carolina on Sept. 21, somewhat reminiscent of the play that shocked No. 5 Michigan in 2007.
The next step in the quest for a conference championship game berth has arrived for Coach Drinkwitz and the Mountaineers. Not only does this team have Sun Belt title hopes but also NY6 hopes start to grow as App State maintains their perfect record on the year. App State heads to Cajun country a 1 point underdog along with just a projected 35.8% chance to win according to the ESPN FPI.

Keeping a chip on their shoulder could be the exact thing this group needs to find that next level of success. Zac Thomas has started to come into his own in the new look Drink offense and has started to grow into an even more well-rounded QB. Darrynton Evans has shown why he is one of the better running backs in the country this year with 9 touchdowns in 4 games to go with 471 yards.

Thomas Hennigan has suddenly became the favorite target of Zac Thomas this year as Hennigan has registered 21 receptions for 275 yards and 2 touchdowns and also been about as sure handed as they come. The offense is averaging 47 points per game along with 429 yards of total offense per game.

Defense has been the main concern in 2019. Flashes of the previously stout defenses were shown against UNC but other than that fans have been wanting to see more from Defensive Coordinator Ted Roof’s side of the ball. This is a Cajun offense that has been stellar in running the football but run defense is the the bright spot for this App defense as they only give up 165 yards on the ground per game.
