The Dodgers finish off their series against the Cubs with their second ESPN ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ game of the season. Clayton Kershaw starts the series finale for Los Angeles, favored to last longer than his first start against the Cubs this season.
Rookie Adbert Alzolay starts for Chicago. He struck out seven in five innings against the Dodgers at Wrigley Field on May 5, allowing two runs.
