Dodgers Vs. Cubs: What To Expect From Game 3 Of The NLCS

Maddon made one change to his starting lineup.

"One thing we've been talking about", Ethier said, "that we've got to kind of enjoy the success we've had, but we still haven't accomplished our goal". A gapper or a ball down the line would have given the Cubs the lead. It was one inning only, and in these circumstances you don't get him up and then don't get him in. Carl Edwards Jr. lost control again. The winner heads to Houston needing one win to reach the World Series, so Yankee Stadium figures to be rocking again.

The polarizing Dodgers right fielder has enjoyed a bit of a renaissance during the 2017 season after a pretty down 2016 and it would appear that Game 1 of the NLCS was his return to national prominence.

The shortstop and L.A. leadoff hitter obliterated a Kyle Hendricks offering and deposited it well past Wrigley Field's center-field fence to put the Dodgers up 2-1 on the Chicago Cubs. He has been better in the playoffs. "I've had two (simulated) games in between against a lot of our regular guys in our lineup".

Even before Game 3 began, bad omens were popping up everywhere you looked.

If I wake you up in the middle of the night - and I will not do this, as it's rude, illegal and scary, and besides, you could use the rest - and ask you, "Name a bad postseason decision by a manager", what would you say? Puig has always had the arm, but he's getting much better jumps on the ball thanks to better reads and it has sky-rocketed his range. You thought he was coming out to retrieve Martinez when he visited the mound before Hideki Matsui's double, but nope, just a butt pat and a go-get-'em. But it worked in the Dodgers' favor, as Edwards walked Darvish on four pitches to hand Los Angeles a 4-1 lead. He shattered his previous career high in home runs (19) with 28.

Cubs fans once again donned their Joe-colored glasses, knowing this particular team's history of rising from the ashes. A bunt by Darvish failed to advance Pederson, but Taylor took care of that with a triple to the left-field corner.

As for Kyle Hendricks, he pitched twice in the NLDS against the Washington Nationals and was a completely different pitcher in each start.

And Darvish even offered some help on offense. The fastball deflected off Contreras and rolled into the Dodgers' dugout for a run-scoring strikeout.

The matchup is a rematch of last year's NLCS, which the Cubs won in six games. Bryant and Rizzo are a combined 3 for 38 in their last five postseason games.

"Whenever you're on the bench, your name is going to get called upon at some point", Schwarber said. "Find a way, just to grind out this win". (Wednesday is) a Game 7. I know that he went out there and tried to make the pitches that he wanted to make.
