Cubs at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: SPNLA, WGN
Righty Kyle Hendricks (7-4, 3.00 ERA) pitches for the Cubs; Lefty Rich Hill (3-1, 2.40 ERA) does so for the Dodgers. Hendricks has won his last three starts with a 2.05 ERA over those 22 innings. He last faced the Dodgers on June 27, 2018 and it didn’t go well. He gave up six runs in 2 2/3 innings. In Hill’s last three starts he’s won two and had an ERA of 2.00. He shut the Cubs out for six innings in his only start against them last season.
Here are Bellinger’s two homers from yesterday’s game:
This date in Dodgers’ history:
- 2003 After being activated from the disabled list by the Dodgers, first baseman Fred McGriff bats cleanup and goes 2-for-4 in his return against the Padres. It was the Crime Dog’s first trip to the DL during his 18-year career.
- 2010 After just seven days in the major leagues, Stephen Strasburg is named National League Player of the Week. The Nationals’ right-handed flamethrower starts his career 2-0 with 22 strikeouts, second to only Karl Spooner, who fanned five more batters in his first two major league starts with the Dodgers in 1954.
