The NLCS is here. The game thread is also here, albeit slightly late.

The Cardinals are the slight money line favorite tonight, and they’ll be throwing Mike Mikolas. The Nationals are countering with Aníbal Sánchez. The first inning has ended already, and it’s a 0-0 game. Without further ado, here are the details and the poll.
