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.

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

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

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.

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

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
