Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs, last game in a long series. They have the advantage with two wins, they must only win today to close the series as a victory. Last night the Cubs won in a tight game that ended with just three runs. The first two games of the series the Cubs could not do anything despite having two good pitchers. The dominance of the Dodgers is evident when they play at home.
Los Angeles Dodgers: Ready to kill the series.
The Dodgers won the first two games of this series 7-3 and 5-3. The Cubs had good defense, but the Dodgers know how to win at home. In the third game of the series the Cubs offense was tougher and they won 1-2. The Dodgers’ defense did everything it could to keep the Cubs out of the win but it was impossible.

Chicago Cubs: Draw or lose.
The Cubs could do damage last night winning the third game of the series for only one run. But the record on the road is still negative with 15-20. Just three wins in the last ten games on the road.
