The Los Angeles Dodgers, who are one win away to reach their first World Series since 1988, will attempt to achieve the feat when they resume hostilities against last year’s Champions Chicago Cubs with Game 5 of this NLCS set to be broadcasted Thursday night on TBS at 8:00 p.m. ET and live from Wrigley Field in Chicago.

After winning the first three games of the series, the Dodgers seemed poised to complete the four-game sweep but the Cubs staved off a rapid elimination by surviving 3-2 in Game 4 on Wednesday. The Cubs are still not out of the woods yet as they need to win their next three games with two contests set to be staged at Dodger Stadium.

Game 4 produced a spectacle that headlined the long ball with five solo shots accounting for all the run. Cubs’ catcher Javier Baez connected for two homeruns including the game winner in the fifth inning. Willson Contreras added the other for the Cubs while Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner replied for the Dodgers in a losing effort.

LH Clayton Kershaw (18-4, 2.31 ERA - 1-0, 4.76 ERA) will look to send his Dodgers to the World Series as he takes the mound for Los Angeles while LH Jose Quintana (11-11, 4.15 ERA - 0-0, 1.59 ERA) will attempt to nab his first-career postseason win as he gets the nod for the Cubs.

Kershaw will look to improve on two ordinary performances in which he carries a pedestrian 4.76 ERA during that span. The 29-year old allowed two runs on four hits and four strikeouts in five innings in a no-decision against the Cubs last Saturday. Kershaw is 1-1 with a 3.18 ERA in 3 playoff starts against the Cubs. In all, the Texan is 5-3 with a 2.64 ERA in 9-career starts versus Chicago.

Quintana has done well in his first postseason for the Cubs in which he has kept a 1.69 ERA in two starts. The 28-year old didn’t factor in the decision his last time out versus the Dodgers in a game he allowed two runs across just two hits in five innings in the Cubs’ 5-2 loss to Los Angeles last Saturday. The Columbia native is 0-1 with a 0.00 ERA in two-career starts against the Dodgers.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Dodgers favorites at 165-moneyline with the total sitting at 7.
