Starting for Chicago will be right hander Kyle Hendricks as he opposes Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw. Hendricks saw action in the NLDS as he worked October 8th at home to San Francisco where he worked 3 2/3rd innings and allowed two earned runs. He has been dealing with a contusion to his forearm and is ready to make the start in Game 2. He has allowed two earned runs or fewer in nine of his previous ten starts. Clayton Kershaw has been a workhorse in the MLB playoffs. He will be making his fourth appearance in the playoffs on Sunday with three starts and one relief appearance. LA is 3-0 when Kershaw has pitched thus far in the post season. He last started on October 11th at home in a must win game against Washington. Facing elimination and working on three days of rest Kershaw tossed 6 2/3rd innings and allowed five earned runs and seven hits. In Game 5 it was Kershaw entering the bottom of the ninth inning with two runners on and LA leading 4-3 with one out. Kershaw retired both batters he faced and earned the save in the fifth and deciding game of the NLDS against Washington. The Cubs took a 1-0 lead in this best of seven NLCS on Saturday as they defeated the Dodgers 8-4. LA had rallied all the way back from an early 3-0 deficit to tie the game at 3-3 in the eighth. But Chicago pushed across five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to beat LA.
