Probable Pitchers: Cubs RH Kyle Hendricks (7-4, 3.00 ERA) vs. Dodgers LH Rich Hill (3-1, 2.50 ERA)
The Chicago Cubs and LA Dodgers will play Game 2 of a 4-game set tonight after the Dodgers scored 6 runs in the 4th and 5th innings en route to a 7-3 victory. Tonight, Cubs ace Kyle Hendricks takes the mound against ex-Cub Rich Hill.
Hill is making his first start since June 8th, coming off the IL with a knee injury. The 39-year-old lefty has given up 3 runs or less in all of his 8 starts this season, but he’s yet to meet this tough Cubs lineup.

Hendricks has been great this season, going 7 or more innings in 7 of his 10 starts on the season. Aside from a terrible start back in April where he gave up 7 runs to the D’backs and 4 against the Nats the middle of May, he has limited opponents to 3 runs or less.
Although the Dodgers are an incredible 26-7 at home, and are 14-5 SU in their last 19 games overall, I predict a little rust from Hill when he takes the mound and the hot-hitting Cubs lineup will take advantage of it early, with Hendricks and the bullpen shutting the Dodgers down enough for the W. Take the dog.
