After splitting the first two games of this NLCS at Wrigley Field in Chicago, the Cubs have traveled south for this game 4 in Chavez Ravine with the Dodgers. The Chicago Cubs will be featuring salty veteran John Lackey, 37, on the mound doing the pitching while the Dodgers will field young rookie Julio Urias, 20. Strong pitching wins championships and the starter with the better outing will give his team the edge in this huge game 4. Don’t miss a single out! WATCH THE DODGERS VS. CUBS ONLINE HERE.
Let’s take a closer look at the pitching matchup. The Cubbie’s John and his experience might have the edge in this duel. The rightie from Texas has 13 years in the Majors and dealt a solid 3.35 ERA in the 2016 regular season which was enough to earn him a winning record of 11-8. John was part of the Cubs team which earned 103 wins, the most in the Majors for the 2016 season.
When Julio earned his first postseason win against the Washington Nationals in the NLDS, at 20 years and a few months young, he became the youngest pitcher in the Majors to mark a playoff victory. When this kid is in the zone his stuff is down right nasty. His teammates say his poise is what sets him apart from other young pitchers in the league. Julio is stoic, strong and can easily steal this win from the old dude up against him on the Cubs team.
