Game on! The Chicago Cubs are down to their last few outs of the year if they can’t get a huge game 5 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers during the NLCS playoff game on Oct. 20th. Watch all the baseball action from Chavez Ravine online here at 8pm EST.
The Chicago Cubs were the best team in the majors during the 2016 season and now they are struggling against a scrappy Los Angeles Dodger team with the best pitcher in baseball, Clayton Kershaw. The two teams will battle it out in one last game in LA during this huge game 5. On the mound for the Cubbies will be Jon Lester, 32, who will be doing his best to keep Chicago’s World Series hopes alive. WATCH THE DODGERS VS. CUBS ONLINE HERE.
The Cubs have been getting it done all season with solid hitting backed-up by strong pitching. On first base for the Cubs, Anthony Rizzo has been crushing the leather off the ball all year however he has been a virtual non-factor against the Dodgers. Anthony will need to start getting on base and creating some runs for his team if they are to have any chance in this huge game 5.
Jon is a left-hander from Washington who will be working with his 2.44 ERA for the Cubs on the mound during this game 5. The Cubs hope Jon’s slider and curve can fool enough of the Dodger sluggers to get the crucial win in this series. Jon helped the Cubs earn 103 wins in the regular season, more than any other team in the majors.
The Dodgers will be answering the Cubs call with one of the most productive infields in the playoffs. Adrian Gonzalez works first, Chase Utley is their veteran clutch guy on second, ferocious rookie Corey Seager plays short and Justin Turner is on third. Good luck getting anything by these guys!
