A Hollywood ending: Dodgers advance to NLCS in a 4-3 thriller over the Nationals

The Los Angeles Dodgers lived up to the challenge Thursday Night at Nationals Park: beating all odds in a 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals, the all-time classic NLDS Game 5 resembled a Hollywood-like ending for Dodger Nation.

The Dodgers had finally hurdled their playoff-obstacle in a “dreamlike” fashion, and got the NLDS monkey off their backs.

Los Angeles has an opportunity to put an end to their playoff droughts, and it starts in Chicago. The MLB Postseason 2016 headlines are surreal, so surreal, they could not even be scripted: Dodgers’ magic vs. Cubs’ miracle NLDS series victory.

The Dodgers proved Thursday night that the Cubs are not the only team aiming to end championship droughts. The road to Chicago will be one to remember, for the Dodger-Cubs NLCS matchup is as good as it gets.
