Los Angeles Dodgers showed that they are not afraid of changing their pitchers more than often.
Their manager might be doing the same tonight when Rich Hill is expected to start but he didn’t complete even five innings in each of his 2 starts in the postseason. The series are 1-1 and game 3 will be played in Los Angeles but the Chicago Cubs have the advantage because they didn’t use their pitchers so much in the postseason.
Jake Arrieta will start for them tonight and he is coming off a big game against the San Francisco Giants. The Cubs should be concerned that their batters don’t hit the ball as much as they would like. They made only 3 runs against Kenta Maeda in game 1 while they were shut down by Clayton Kershaw in game 2.
I expect this game to be very close but I believe that the Chicago Cubs batters will finally find their way of hitting the ball and they will deliver the win for the Cubs.
