What has been an entertaining series thus far wraps up on Sunday afternoon as the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers get set for battle.
Chicago came from behind to grab an extra innings win on Friday as the two teams will continue to play through capacity crowds all weekend long.
It doesn’t matter who Chicago throws out on the mound these days. The Cubs pitching staff continues to be one of the best in baseball and will look to continue that here on Sunday afternoon.
The Cubs pitching staff ranks first in ERA, WHIP, and Quality Starts this season.
Chicago has completely pulled away in the NL Central, as they look to now grab the best record in the National League and hold home field advantage through the National League playoffs.
Jon Lester will get the ball, looking to continue his impressive run.
Lester is a stellar 14-4 on the season with a 2.81 ERA to his credit.
The LH has put in 5 straight quality starts, allowing just 1 run in back to back outings.
The Dodgers have quite a bit more work to do than the Cubs in terms of the division race.
It wasn’t easy, but they’ve managed to erase a hole and lead the NL West by just 1.0 game over the Giants.
It’s been an emotional week for the team, as they sent A.J. Ellis to the Phillies in a trade, causing some stir in the clubhouse. While Ellis was almost a non entity in terms of offensive production, the Dodgers team all had solid connections with him.
Los Angeles will send out Brock Stewart here, who is getting recalled from Triple A.
The move comes with some strategy behind it, as Kenta Maeda was sent down to the Arizona League. The move allows him to return for his next start and not wait the scheduled 10 days because the season for the AZL Dodgers ends Sunday.
Stewart is 9-3 with a 1.68 ERA in 20 starts this year in the minors.

Welcome to the big leagues Brock Stewart.
A major league debut against the Cubs is not going to be fun for the rookie.

The Cubs should have a field day with Stewart here. Given it being his first start with some nerves, this has the ability to get ugly.
