One down, 10 to go for the Cubs — who squeaked at a 1-0 Game 1 victory behind a superb performance from Jon Lester and an eighth inning homer from Javier Baez. Still, Game 2 is critical for the Cubs. If they lose Saturday, the Cubs could easily be looking at a 2-1 series deficit, with the brilliant Madison Bumgarner awaiting for Game 3 in San Francisco.
Kyle Hendricks, who led the National League this season with a 2.13 ERA takes the ball for the Cubs. He’ll be opposed by former Cub Jeff Samardzija for the Giants.
First pitch is at 8:08 p.m. ET. The MLB Network will air the game live. Bob Costas and John Smoltz have the call. MLB Network will stream the game on its website, as well as its mobile app — which can be downloaded via the iTunes store, the Google Play store, and the Windows store.
