Last-Place Cubs Visit Dodgers for Three-Game Set Starting Friday

Dodgers enjoying hot streak to open weekend

Los Angeles enters their weekend series with the Cubs on a six-game tear, upping their NL West lead to 3.5 games over the Giants. They have also won eight of their last 10 games and are looking more and more like the team to beat in the National League as the season moves towards the playoffs. Haren has struggled this year, posting an 8-8 record and an ERA of 4.49.

Cubs ask rookie Hendricks to pitch well once again

Kyle Hendricks was added to the Cubs rotation when Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel were traded last month to the Athletics. He has held his own so far, posting a record of 1-1 and an impressive ERA of 2.33. In three career starts, Hendricks has record two quality starts and will look for another tonight in Los Angeles. He grew up in Newport Beach, California, so this is a bit of a homecoming from the righty.

When the Cubs visit the Dodgers on Friday night in Los Angeles, we will place our bet over at Sportsbook.ag. Even though Haren has struggled this season, the Dodgers offense will be too overwhelming for Hendricks. This is why we will bet 15 percent of our bankroll on the Dodgers and the -165 money line as they open the series with a victory over the Cubs.
