LA-Dodgers
Kyle Hendricks (3-4 with a 2.93 ERA) takes the mound for the Cubs, who seek eighth win in nine games and third in their four-game series against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers.

 

The 26-year-old right-hander pitched his second complete game last Saturday, allowing 5 hits and 1 run of a 4-1 win against the Phillies, with seven strikeouts.

 

He went 2-1 with a 1.93 ERA in four games at Wrigley Field this year, posting a 3.16 ERA in thirteen home starts dating back to the All-Star game.

 

In the matter of fact, Hendricks had some problems in his last start versus Los Angeles on June 24, 2015 (2-5), but pitched seven solid innings in his first start against the Dodgers, in which he yielded 4 hits and 2 runs (one earned) in an 8-2 win at Dodger Stadium on Aug. 1, 2014.

 

Justin Turner is hitting .400 (2-for-5), with a homer and 3 RBI off Hendricks, Adrian Gonzalez is 1-for-2, with a solo home run and a walk, but Yasmani Grandal, Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford and Enrique Hernandez are a combined 1-for-13.

 

The Cubs were limited to two or fewer runs in each of the previous three games of this series, but I think that they might show better efficiency in offense in that game, given the fact that the Dodgers will send Julio Urias (0-0 with a 10.13 ERA) to the mound for the series finale.

 

The rookie left-hander had serious problems in his major league debut, as he gave up 5 hits and 3 runs while walking four batters over 2 2/3 innings of a 5-6 loss in Queens last Friday.

 

I think that the Chicago Cubs will manage to win the final game of this series with more than one run difference.
