Game 10, 2017

Dodgers at Cubs, 11:20AM PT, TV: SPNLA, MLBN (out-of-market only), CSN-C

The Dodgers ask LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (0-1, 3.86 ERA) to defeat old friend and fellow LHP Brett Anderson (0-0, 1,89 ERA). Ryu went 4 2/3 innings last Friday and gave up two runs on six hits while keeping his velocity above 91mph.

This will be Anderson’s first start at home for the Cubs and his first start against his former teammates as well. He went 11-11 with a 4.18 ERA in 35 games (34 starts) with the Dodgers in 2015-2016 but pitched in only four games last year after shutting down due to disk surgery in his back in March. He came back in August but struggled. The Dodgers didn’t offer him a new contract over the winter and he signed with the Cubs in January of this year.

Lineup when available.

Thompson gets his first start of the season, Puig is at cleanup, and A-gon gets the day off. Also, it looks rainy.

  1. Surprised, somewhat, that Klayton hasn’t already flown to LA since he starts tomorrow.

  2. Oh boy. This one looks to be getting away from Ryu and the Dodgers – one run at a time. Like sands through the hour glass…

  3. Just not feeling like the Dodgers day today. I really thought they would tee off a bit against Anderson to be honest. And now they are struggling to do much of anything good at bat.

    Ah well, tomorrow should be a fun one – Kershaw vs Greinke.

  4. Wouldn’t it be grand if Hatcher was good again? That would be a pleasant surprise.

    • Indeed. Looking forward to matching up with west division teams at home. Should kick start some winning. I hope anyways!

    • Silver lining? We learned that Mac and Ryu can indeed pitch, and that we can hit (well, at least righties)
