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 game four at Wrigley Field, and there is a chance this could be the last game of this series.
The Dodgers have been the dominant team this series and currently hold a 3-0 series lead. If they were to win this game they would be headed to the World Series.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been perfect so far in the playoffs coming into this game with a 6-0 record. They swept the Diamondbacks in the first series, and now have won the first three games of this series.
The Dodgers have the best pitching top to bottom in baseball, and it has shown in the first three games of this series.
On the mound in game three for the Dodgers was Yu Darvish. He had a little trouble in the first inning giving up a home run and three hits in the inning.
But he settled down and that ended up being the only run he gave up in the game.
On the mound for the Dodgers is Alex Wood who will be making his first start of the post season, which is a bit of a surprise after how he pitched in the regular season.
The Cubs bats have been cold this season and he just needs to get settled into a groove early. One thing to watch in this game is how long they allow Wood to stay in if he struggles early.
With how good the Dodgers bullpen is I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get a quick hook if he struggles.
On the other side of this match up is the Chicago Cubs who have to be really scratching their head after how they have played in the first three games.
Their bats have been ice cold, and although the pitching hasn’t been terrible it hasn’t been great and that’s what you need when you are facing off against the Dodgers.
One bright side that came in game three was that Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo were both able to get hits, something they had struggled doing the rest of the series.
On the mound for the Cubs is Jake Arrieta who pitched well in his only post season start against the Nationals. He went four innings and give up two hits and zero earned runs.
They are going to need him to probably go deeper in this game and give up only a run or maybe two. Anything more then one or two runs will probably be too much.
