The Dodgers used Clayton Kershaw in their previous series in order for them to advance to the NCLS but this may be a mistake that will cost them the win of these series.
Kershaw is 12-4 and he provides some of the nastiest throws in the baseball today. He is one of the best pitchers in the league and he will strike out anybody in the league with his curveballs and sliders.
Kyle Hendricks, on the other side, is 16-8 for the season. He is not the strongest pitcher if we are talking about the speed of the fastball but he mixes his pitches a lot, so he can get the strikeouts. Hendricks made one start against the Dodgers this season when he allowed just two runs in a win for the Cubs.
This is a very tough game to predict but I believe that no matter how much Kershaw is exhausted, he still has what it takes to beat the Cubs before going back to Los Angeles.
