Cubs need to win only one game out of two to advance to the World Series where they will meet the Cleveland Indians. This will be a battle between two of the best pitchers in nowadays baseball.
Kyle Hendricks will start for the Cubs as he stands with 16-8 with a 2.13 ERA. He was probably the best pitcher in the regular season and he is now thrown into the mix to secure a pivotal win in game 6. He started game 2 where he kept the Dodgers to just a single run while earlier in the year, Los Angeles were allowed 2 runs by Hendricks.
On the other side, we will see Clayton Kershaw doing his business like he always does. He shut the Cubs down in game 2 where he had a game with no runs allowed. He is excited to start this game as he sees the opportunity to get to the Dodgers to the ‘promise land’. Hendricks would win this game against the Dodgers anytime but not against Clayton. Prediction: a win for the Dodgers and a game 7 tomorrow.
