Today in baseball history:

Round 2 — for the Pennant! Cubs vs Dodgers! At 11 a.m. CT. Yu Darvish (1-0, 1.13) will take the hill against Walker Buehler (1-0, 0.00) in a likely pitchers’ duel, a night game in the Friendly Confines. Ryan Yarbrough (0-0, 0.00) and Clayton Kershaw (0-1, 4.50) will face each other in the second game, Saturday at 11 a.m. CT.

Sunday will be a ‘travel day’ as the teams ready for battle in Chavez Ravine. Pitching will be at a premium in this series. Both teams also feature star-studded offenses and this promises to be a great series. All game video and related material is available commercial-free, 24/7, at the BCB Media Center.
