Let’s try this again.

The Dodgers and Nationals will try again to play Game 2 of their National League Division Series on Sunday, this time with an early morning start, at least on the west coast.

Los Angeles has a chance to win their first two games on the road for the first time since the 2008 NLDS against the Cubs.

That series ended okay for the Dodgers, just like every other best-of-5 series that saw the Dodgers capture Game 1 . LA is 6-0 after winning the first game of a best-of-5 series — winning the 1974 NLCS over Pittsburgh, the 1978 NLCS over Philadelphia, the 1981 NLCS over Montreal, 2008, the 2009 NLDS over St. Louis, and the 2013 NLDS over Atlanta.

Rich Hill starts for the Dodgers as planned, against an organization he was with on a minor league deal to open 2015. Tanner Roark starts for the Nationals, the second straight right-hander to start for Washington.
