How to Live Stream the Game
First pitch is slated for 9:10 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on SNLA, KTLA, ABC 7, and MLB Network. Live streaming will be available on the MLB streams subreddit.
Chicago has been caught in an up-and-down stretch of late, with a 5-5 record in their last 10 games. After a dominant three-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals last weekend, the Cubs dropped a series at Coors Field and now find themselves in a 2-0 series deficit in LA.
Chicago has simply been out-pitched so far in the series against the Dodgers, after failing to record more than three runs against both Clayton Kershaw and Rich Hill. The Cubs' only runs on Friday came from homers via Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant, smashing their 18th and 15th dingers respectively.
Yu Darvish will toe the rubber for the Cubs, looking for his third win.
The Dodgers have taken control of the NL West and they are not looking back. With a 10.5-game lead over the Rockies and tied for the best record in baseball, the Dodgers are coasting to another division title.
Cody Bellinger has slowed down compared to his ridiculous star, but still has an excellent .900 OPS in his last 15 games. Alex Verdugo is breaking out for the Dodgers too, as the 23-year-old outfielder has given LA an embarrassment of riches with a .302 average on the season.
Walker Buehler will look to continue his dominant stretch on Saturday night. He owns a 2.15 ERA in his last seven starts.
