Game 1 was filled with drama and late inning scoring.
The Dodgers look to steal a road game here as Clayton Kershaw takes the hill in Game 2 on Sunday night.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Los Angeles had plenty of chances to steal Game 1 as they tied things up late at 3. However, the offense failed with the go ahead run on 3rd base, ultimately setting the game up for a Cubs win.
The Dodgers offense will continue to rely heavily on Adrian Gonzalez, who has 6 homeruns in his postseason career and drove in the pair of 8th inning tying runs with a single.
Taking no chances, Clayton Kershaw will take the hill for the Dodgers.
Kershaw pitched in all 3 of the Dodgers wins against the Nationals in the NLDS, as he had a pair of wins and the save in Game 5 as he came on with first and second and 1 out.
The Dodgers star has made it very clear he’s ready to pitch at any time for as long as the Dodgers need him to here in the postseason.
In his career, Kershaw has gone 5-3 with a 2.14 ERA against the Cubs.
Chicago just continues to find ways to win late.
The drama continued for the Cubs as the unsung hero was Miguel Montero, who blasted a pinch hit grand slam to send Wrigley Field into a frenzy.
Chicago has now won all 3 games at home this postseason.
They’ll send out Kyle Hendricks here, who has recovered from getting drilled on the arm with a ball back to the mound against the Giants in the NLDS.
Hendricks gave up 2 runs in 3.2 innings of work in that start, but his home record here is worth noting.
The RH has gone 9-2 with a 1.32 ERA at home this year.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
This one is going to be extremely low scoring. Both pitchers have filthy stuff and given what’s on the line here, both teams will be playing small ball here.
