2017 National League Championship Series Game 2 preview: Cubs vs. Dodgers, Sunday 10/15, 6:30 CT

The Cubs look to even up the NLCS at one win each. A few pre-Game 2 notes: Albert Almora Jr., at 23 years and 181 days old, last night became the fifth-youngest Cub to homer in a post-season game. The youngest was Frank Demaree (22 years, 114 days) in Game 4 of the 1932 World Series. The others: Kyle Schwarber (22, 216) in the 2015 wild-card game, Addison Russell (22, 270) in Game 4 of the 2016 NLCS and Javier Báez (22, 316) in Game 4 of the 2015 division series vs. the Cardinals. Jon Lester enters tonight with a 2.57 ERA (41 ER/143.1 IP) and a 9-7 record in 24 career postseason games...

Cubs NLDS Game 4 lineup: Jason Heyward in, Kyle Schwarber out vs. Stephen Strasburg

Cubs NLDS Game 4 lineup: Jason Heyward in, Kyle Schwarber out vs. Stephen Strasburg

The Nats have changed starters, so the Cubs tweaked their lineup. I don't know what caused the Nationals to change from Tanner Roark to Stephen Strasburg as the starter for today's game, but that has caused a change in the Cubs lineup: Strasburg to pitch for Nats. Heyward for Schwarber in #Cubs lineup— Bruce Miles (@BruceMiles2112) October 11, 2017 It's not yet clear whether this is a straight lineup swap, with Jason Heyward batting sixth where Kyle Schwarber was, but I think that's a reasonable assumption. Ben Zobrist moves over to play left field. This is clearly a better defensive...

'Respect me!' Rizzo makes Nats pay dearly

It felt like the ball was in the air for five minutes, Kyle Schwarber said, but it was only five seconds before Anthony Rizzo's popup found a patch of grass between three Nationals in shallow left-center field.
