Only four teams are remaining in the hunt for the World Series.
In the National League Championship series it’s a rematch of last year’s NLDS. The Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play in game two of the National League Championship Series.
In game one the Cubs jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but it was all the Dodgers after that winning the game 5-2
Coming into this series the Cubs knew they would have an uphill battle in game one going against Kershaw, but all they need is a win in game two, and they can take back home field in this series.
In game one they were the team to get out to a 2-0 lead with a home run by Almora Jr in the 4th inning. But from that point on the pitching really struggled giving up two home runs, and five runs, and the game ended in a loss.
The pitching match up isn’t going to get any easier as the Dodgers keep running out good pitchers with Rich Hill coming to the mound in this game.
They need to get out to a fast start again. Rich Hill can be hit off of, but they can’t let him settle in, in the first couple of innings.
If they don’t have a run after the first three innings they are going to have all kinds of issues winning this game.
On the mound for the Cubs is Jon Lester who has had a very up and down season this year but has been pitching well as of late.
Against the Nationals he made two appearances in which he went 9.2 innings and only gave up a total of two earned runs.
Los Angeles Dodgers
On the other side of this match up is the Los Angeles Dodgers who haven’t lost yet this postseason and come into this game with all kinds of confidence.
Everything that could go right has so far for this team. They have gotten really good pitching and the bats have been hot.
On the mound for the Dodgers is Rich Hill who has had a nice season, but wasn’t super sharp against the Diamondbacks.
He only went four inning and gave up three hits and two earned runs. He needs to get settled in a groove early in this game.
