Cubs vs. Dodgers NLCS Game 3 Preview
The Dodgers got what they wanted in Game 2 as they have taken a game in Chicago with 1-0 win last Sunday. Clayton Kershaw, who is considered the best pitcher in baseball, conquered his demons as he pitched seven shutout innings.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts then handed the ball to his dominant closer, Kenley Jansen, who recorded his first-ever six-out save. It was a pitching duel since Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks only allowed one run.
First baseman Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo home run off Hendricks at the top of the second inning. At that point it no one else scored as the Cubs’ bats stayed silent. The series now goes to Los Angeles where the Dodgers look to take advantage of home field.
The Dodgers will start left-hander Rich Hill, who has a 12-5 record last season and 2.12 ERA. He goes up against reigning NL Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta. The Cubs are hoping they can regain home field advantage and continue the quest to break a 108-year title drought.
