Chicago Cubs's Latest Performance :
Cubs starter Jon Lester shut out the Dodgers last week and is looking for a repeat performance at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday. The Cubs are a tough team to beat at home and away and have the goods to back it up. They have the best defense in baseball and an offense that ranks 3rd in the National League. They are a team to be reckoned with.
Los Angeles Dodgers's Latest Performance :
The Los Angeles Dodgers are 2.5 games back and are definitely in the hunt for first place. Coming off of a couple of losses certainly didn’t help, but are playing decent ball. The last time they played the Cubs was less than a week ago with the Dodgers taking two of the four scheduled games with one being postponed due to weather.
The Dodgers have a couple of pitchers, Kershaw and Buehler coming back from injury in the next couple of weeks and are looking to acquire some additional help before the trade deadline.
