Dodgers: 2-0 (0-0 V)
Cubs: 0-2 (0-0 H)
When: 9:00 PM ET, Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Where: Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois

The Los Angeles Dodgers are a couple of wins away to make it to their first World Series for the first time in more than thirty years but first they will need to close out this existing series against the defending Champions Chicago Cubs. They are in good shape as they lead the Cubs 2-0 in this NLCS and will get ready to face their NL foes in Game 3 with the showdown set to be broadcasted Tuesday night on TBS at 9:00 p.m. ET and live from Wrigley Field in Chicago.

The Dodgers are on a roll against the Cubs as they have now won five straight games including a dramatic 4-1 victory late Monday to extend their winning streak to five games in the postseason. The opportunistic Dodgers rallied once again in Game 2 after doing it in the opener when they came back from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Cubs 5-2 in Game 1 of the NLCS. On Monday, they trailed the Cubs by a run in the fifth but tied the affair in the bottom of the frame until a captivating 9th inning.

The game transported itself into the last inning tied at 1-1 when the magic began for the Dodgers. The red-hot Yasiel Puig walked to start the frame and was advanced to second by Charlie Culberson’s sacrifice bunt. After pinch hitter Kyle Farmer struck out, Cubs manager Joe Maddon brought in veteran John Lackey to try and save the day. It failed miserably as he gave up a walk to Chris Taylor and then Justin Turner brought LA to a frenzy when he hit Lackey’s second pitch 416 feet in the center field seats to cap the Dodgers second win.

RH Yu Darvish (10-12, 3.86 ERA - 1-0, 1.80 ERA) will look to nab his second postseason win as he takes the hill for the Dodgers while RH Kyle Hendricks (7-5, 3.03 ERA - 1-0, 3.27 ERA) will attempt to keep his team in the series as he gets the nod for the Cubs.

Darvish collected his first-career postseason win in his last trip to the mound in which he gave up a run on just two hits and seven strikeouts in a 3-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NLDS a week ago. The 31-year old is 4-3 with a 3.44 ERA in 9 starts since being acquired by the Dodgers in early August. The Japan native will face the Cubs for just the second time in his career. He lost the decision in his lone start back in July of last year.

Hendricks has been solid as a rock in the postseason in which he has sported a 2-1 record with a 2.60 ERA in 9-career starts. The 27-year old was 1-1 with a splendid 0.75 ERA in 2 starts against the Dodgers in last year’s NLCS. Hendricks struggled in his last start in which he allowed 4 runs on 9 hits and 2 homeruns in 4 innings in a no-decision against the Nationals last Thursday. The Dartmouth product is 2-1 with a 3.15 ERA in 3-career starts against the Dodgers.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Cubs favorites at 120-moneyline with the total sitting at 8.
