The Washington Nationals are returning to the nation's capital Thursday night for Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Chicago Cubs after a triumphant 5-0 win Wednesday night at Wrigley Field.

The game will start at 8:08 p.m at Nationals Park. All gates will open at 6 p.m.

Metro hours will NOT be extended Thursday night. The second-to-last Green Line train toward Greenbelt will leave the Navy Yard Metro station at 11:02 p.m., and the last Green Line train toward Branch Avenue will leave the station at 11:48 p.m.

Nationals officials are encouraging fans to use alternative travel options such as Uber, biking, or the D.C. Circulator, which will offer extended service and free rides on the Union Station - Navy Yard route throughout the entire postseason.
