Los Angeles Dodgers
Kenta Maeda had been averaging just about six innings per start this season but he only got twelve outs on Tuesday, giving up six runs on seven hits and three bases on balls. Julio Urias and two other relievers cleaned it up from there.
Urias left the rotation when Clayton Kershaw returned and Ross Stripling will likely bow out soon, too. This should be his last start with Rich Hill set to make his debut this weekend. Hill has been out with a knee problem the Dodgers wanted to make sure was completely healthy before he pitched again.
That will leave the Dodgers a little deeper in the bullpen and with their projected top five in the rotation: Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Maeda, and Hill. It probably won’t be long until Stripling is called on to start another game, though.
The Cubs beat the Dodgers in the first game of the series on Tuesday, 7–2, for their sixth win in seven games to get over .500. Jose Quintana went seven innings, gave up four hits, two runs, and looked sharp for a third start in a row.
Again, Anthony Rizzo has started slowly. He come on after that sluggish start a year ago but it’s really only Willson Contreras and Jason Heyward who are hitting for Chicago right now. Kris Bryant hasn’t been great and Kyle Schwarber has been terrible in the first three-plus weeks.
Cole Hamels will start Wednesday’s game. Perhaps Tyler Chatwood, who has stepped into the rotation for the injured Jon Lester, will get this start on Thursday. He’s given up eight hits and four runs in twelve innings, including six two-hit, shutout innings in his first start the last time out.
