    Max Scherzer is 35. So is Ryan Zimmerman.

    The Washington Nationals would not be headed to a win-or-go-home Game 5 in their NL Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers without them.

    "We're a bunch of viejos. We're old guys," Scherzer joked. "Old guys can still do it."

    Sure can. And for a guy whose teams used to lose repeatedly in the postseason, Scherzer sure is delivering now.

    Every time he's pitched this October, the Nationals have won. His latest outing was a season-saving, seven-inning masterpiece that combined with Zimmerman's three-run parabola of a homer to lift the wild-card Nationals to a 6-1 victory over league-best Los Angeles on Monday night, tying the best-of-five NLDS at two games apiece.
