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 head back to Wrigley to play game three of the series.
The Dodgers have been the dominant team this series and currently hold a 2-0 series lead.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been perfect so far in the playoffs coming into this game with a 5-0 record. They swept the Diamondbacks in the first series, and now have won the first two games of this series.
The Dodgers have the best pitching top to bottom in baseball, and it has shown in the first two games of this series.
They have scored nine runs so far this series while only giving up three of them. In game two Justin Turner drove in all four runs and hit a walk off home run to end it in the 9th.
Like I said above the Dodgers pitching staff is unbelievable and they send another ace to the mound in this one.
They got Yu Darvish from a trade with the Rangers at the trade deadline, and he has pitched really well since being acquired.
In each of his last four starts he has gone at least five innings and has given up only two earned runs in that stretch.
On the other side of this match up is the Chicago Cubs who really need a win in this game or their series is going to be all but over.
Their bats have been ice cold against the Dodgers and that has led to the struggles of the team. Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant need to be able to get their bats going.
They need to try and get an early start against Darvish. Once he gets settled into a grove he is a very hard guy to get to.
On the mound for the Cubs is Kyle Hendricks who has been the cubs best pitcher the last couple of months. In his last start though he really struggled.
In game seven against the Nationals he had a rough first couple of innings going only four innings and giving up nine hits and four earned runs.
