BOTTOM OF EIGHTH: Dodgers 1, Cubs 0
Kenley Jansen threw 51 pitches, the most of his professional career, on Thursday in Washington. He struck out Willson Contreras with just three tonight to begin his outing. Jason Heyward then popped a ball up to short right field for an out. Game 1 hero Miguel Montero, pinch-hitting to applause, struck out swinging.
Jansen needed only 10 pitches to finish the inning. It will be Joc Pederson, Yasmani Grandal and Enrique Hernandez batting for the Dodgers in the top of the ninth inning.
