A berth in the National League Championship Series is at stake when the defending champion Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals square off in Game 5 of the NL Division Series.

The Nationals staved off elimination in Game 4 after a brilliant pitching performance by Stephen Strasburg. Strasburg pitched three-hit ball over seven innings while striking out 12 in Washington's 5–0 victory.

In Game 5, the Cubs will send out Kyle Hendricks, who won Game 1 of the series by pitching seven scoreless innings allowing two hits and striking out six.

The winner will face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS.
