The Los Angeles Dodgers got the National League Championship Series off to a rocking start, winning Game 1 at home against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. On Tuesday, they'll take on the Cubs in Chicago for Game 3.

The Dodgers will have Yu Darvish (1-0, 1,80 ERA) on the hill and last time he was on the mound, he clinched a sweep for the Dodgers in the NLDS on the road in Arizona. Darvish allowed a run on two hits over five innings of work, striking out seven with no walks. Since Darvish spent most of his career in Texas, he has never faced the Cubs before. He was 6-4 in 15 road starts this season with a 2.44 ERA.


The Cubs counter with Kyle Hendricks (1-0, 3.27 ERA), who took a no-decision in Game 5's 9-8 win in Washington in the NLDS. Over four innings, Hendricks gave up four runs on nine hits, and struck out seven with a pair of walks. Hendricks also gave up two homers to Washington; he's 2-1 in three career starts against the Dodgers, with an ERA of 3.15.


Cubs are slight favorites as of now:
