Cy Young candidate Kyle Hendricks against three time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw. Should be a good one.

Strong starts for both pitchers

Adrian Gonzalez makes it 1-0, LA. Solo shot to left. T2.

Kevin Powell October 16, 20167:35 PM

Seager made that look easy. That was not an easy play to make.

Kevin Powell October 16, 20167:37 PM

Man, that short rest really seems to be slowing down Kershaw.

Kevin Powell October 16, 20167:50 PM

Third walk of the night by Hendricks

Kevin Powell October 16, 20167:53 PM

Hendricks pitches out of the jam. Cubs coming to bat in the 3rd.

Kevin Powell October 16, 20168:02 PM

Kershaw cruising. No hits. 4 strikeouts through three.

Kevin Powell October 16, 20168:06 PM

Maddon said in pregame he wants Hendricks to pitch to contact rather than try and strikeout a bunch. Appears to be doing that this inning.

CJ Edwards on to pitch

Kevin Powell October 16, 20168:43 PM

Javy Baez makin plays. Just makin plays out there.

Kevin Powell October 16, 20168:45 PM

Maddon also talked about Baez’s awareness on the field…always one step ahead. Perfect example.

Kershaw’s not messing around. 0-2 fastball gets Zobrist.

Kevin Powell October 16, 20169:19 PM
