Wrigley Field, Chi. – 8:00 PM ET – FS1

LHP Clayton Kershaw (12-4, 1.69) vs RHP Kyle Hendricks (16-8, 2.13)

Catcher Miguel Montero saved his manager Joe Maddon and his closer Aroldis Chapman on Saturday night, with a pinch-hit grand slam that vaulted the Chicago Cubs to an 8-4 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS at Wrigley Field. It marked the first time in history that a pinch-hit grand slam provided the game-winning run in a postseason game.

The Dodgers will try to even the series tonight as they send their ace Clayton Kershaw to the mound. He will be opposed by Kyle Hendricks for the Cubs who will look to leave Wrigley with a 2-0 series lead.
