Game 2 of the National League Division Series between the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers features a pair of former Big Ten pitchers.
Dodgers southpaw Rich Hill, a product of Michigan, takes the ball looking to give Los Angeles a 2-0 advantage in the best-of-five series. Meanwhile, the Nationals will turn to former Illinois right-hander Tanner Roark.

Roark, who ranked sixth in the NL in ERA this season, earned second-team All-Big Ten honors in 2007. His six conference wins that year ranked tied for second in school history, according to fightingillini.com.
In his junior season at Michigan, Hill went 3-7 with a 3.55 ERA and eight complete games. He is in his 12th season in the majors.
