Lefty Rich Hill pitched Game 4 in D.C. for the fourth time since June 20, when Hill was placed on the injured list because of a left forearm
strain, one day after leaving a start against the San Francisco Giants after one inning.
The 39-year-old Hill was 4-1 with a 2.45 ERA in 13 starts in the regular season. He faced Washington once, allowing three runs in five innings
in a 6-0 loss May 9 he was the losing pitcher.
Justin Turner’s three-run homer in Game 3 capped a startling and record-setting rally in the sixth as the Dodgers rallied to beat Washington 10-4 to grab a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five NLDS.
Right-hander Max Scherzer was the scheduled starter for the Nationals for Game 4.
