Two runs over 6.1 innings is not a bad outing for the bullpen at all, they simply regressed at the worst possible time. Washington’s bullpen was one of the best in the regular season this year, and they’re still the best unit in these playoffs. Max Scherzer is probably going to start Game 5, but should he falter again, he’ll need his bullpen behind him.

Most worryingly of all, the Nationals used an illegal Scrabble move to shout out Mark Rzepczynski for his strikeout. Hopefully this does not call down a curse upon the team.
