The 2016 National League Championship Series shifts to Los Angeles on Tuesday night for Game 3.
On Tuesday, Jake Arrieta is expected to start for the Cubs, while Rich Hill takes the hill for L.A.
Arrieta was 18-8 with a 3.10 ERA in the regular season. Hill was 12-5 with a 2.12 ERA.
Arrieta has pitched once in the 2016 postseason, getting a no decision in Game 3 of the divisional series against the Giants, a contest San Francisco won 6-5 in 13 innings on October 10. The right-hander allowed 2 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings. He struck out 5 and walked 1. The 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner faced the Dodgers once this season, blanking them over 7 innings. He allowed 2 hits and walked 8. He didn’t fare in the decision, though. That game was at Wrigley Field.
The left-handed Hill appeared in two games in the LDS against the Nationals, giving up 5 runs on 9 hits over 7 innings. He has a 13 to 6 strikeout to walk ratio in the playoffs. Hill didn’t face the Cubs in 2016 and was 4-4 with a 2.42 ERA at home.
Game 3 of the NLCS will be televised by FOX Sports 1 (FS1) beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern.
Game 4 and 5 of the series will also be played in Los Angeles. They are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.
