After a flight back from Los Angeles yesterday, and some time for everyone to rest up after their big win over the Dodgers in Game 2 of their NLDS matchup, the Washington Nationals made a decision this morning to start Aníbal Sánchez in Game 3 tonight in Nationals Park.

Here’s a look back at what led to the decision to give Sánchez the start after the team made an announcement earlier this week that it would be Max Scherzer on the mound...

Starters in the Bullpen/All Hands on Deck:

Stephen Strasburg threw 34 pitches in three scoreless innings in relief of Max Scherzer in the NL Wild Card Game this past Tuesday night, then came back out with six innings on a total of 85 pitches in an impressive outing in Game 2 of the NLDS with the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Friday.
