The Washington Nationals reached the National League Championship Series for the first time in their history after stunning the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-3 on Wednesday. Washington's come-from-behind victory in Game 5 midweek sealed a 3-2 NL Division Series triumph for the Nationals in the MLB playoffs. Trailing 3-1 entering the bottom of the eighth inning, Washington's Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto crushed back-to-back home runs off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to tie the game.
