The last three innings in Game 4 of the NLDS matchup between Washington and Los Angeles were a roller coaster. The Dodgers were leading 5-2 till the seventh inning, but a great comeback gave the illusion the Nationals could close out the series.

Here the five crucial moments of the last three innings of yesterday:

1. Danny Espinosa got a hit in this series.

Finally. After that play he slides with a nice move to beat Seager's flip. Espinosa is fundamental if we want to win the series. #FEARTHEESPIBEARD

2. Kershaw-Harper duel

Something amazing. Thanks to his talent, Harper walks to first base after the eighth pitch. Base loaded, preview of something big.

3. Crying Kershaw

After 110 pitches and 3 points leading in score, he was going out satisfied. Just the time to mop up his face and Pedro Baez hit Werth who plates Espinosa. After that, Murphy tied the game with a two-run single. Crying Jordan face.

4. Treinen stroke out Puig in a controversy call

Maybe not the best decision available for the umpire, but for one time who cares?

5. Chase Utley hit the decisive ball

6-5 Dodgers, game 5. It hurts, but no fear. We are still in the running. See you tomorrow in D.C.
