Jon Lester will face Clayton Kershaw in Sunday's series finale at L.A. Dodgers.

Lester has posted a 0.86 ERA over his past three regular-season starts against Dodger Blue, while Kershaw has struck out 68 Cubs hitters over his past 53 2/3 innings in eight starts while holding them to a .218 average. It sounds like quite the pitching duel is on tap at Chavez Ravine on Sunday night.

Miguel Montero had one of the team's three hits in Saturday's game at L.A. Dodgers.

It wasn't all good, as he did strike out once. When Willson Contreras needs a rest the Cubs do not lose anything by using the veteran Montero behind the dish. He has hit safely in each of his past three appearances and is slashing .328/.362/.500 across 64 at-bats.
May 28 - 12:56 AM

Kyle Schwarber went hitless over three at-bats with a walk and a strikeout Saturday at L.A. Dodgers.

Schwarber, who became a fan favorite during the World Series last season for gutting it out despite not being 100 percent, is losing some of his fans with a dismal .178/.298/.350 slash line. He hasn't had his average over .200 since the final day of April when he was batting .204. Schwarber has collected just 10 hits over 70 at-bats (.143) during an awful May.
May 28 - 12:48 AM

John Lackey allowed five earned runs, six hits and four walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a loss at L.A. Dodgers on Saturday.

Lackey entered with a 1.73 ERA in his career against the Dodgers, lowest against any single opponent, but L.A. certainly put a dent in that number. Kike Hernandez delivered a double against the veteran, while Chris Taylor left the yard for a 2-run homer. The right-hander threw just 58 of his 95 pitches for strikes as his ERA shot up to 5.18.
May 28 - 12:45 AM

Chase Utley went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Saturday's win against the Cubs.

Utley has pieced together a modest three-game hitting streak and he has driven in at least one run (five total RBI) during the span. The veteran second baseman has driven in 12 runs over his past 15 games to re-emerge as a useful fantasy option in most NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats.
May 28 - 12:40 AM

Cody Bellinger was 0-for-1 with three walks in Saturday's win against the Cubs.

Bellinger has hit a bit of a wall, going 8-for-41 (.195) with just two doubles, two homers and six RBI over the past 12 games to drop his average from .319 to .273 just since May 14. The rookie was putting up ridiculous numbers and he was due to cool off eventually.
May 28 - 12:37 AM

Ross Stripling allowed just one hit over three scoreless innings while striking out two batters for a save Saturday against the Cubs.

Stripling was impressive throwing 33 of his 44 pitches for strikes, so manager Dave Roberts allowed him to finish the game and save his bullpen for another day. He has been a godsend for Roberts, as the stretched out sometimes starter has filled in admirably when the starting pitcher goes down to injury. Stripling is cruising along with a 2.54 ERA and is useful in deeper rotisserie formats using true middle relievers.
May 28 - 12:34 AM

J.J. Hardy finished 2-for-3 in Saturday's loss against the Astros.

Hardy has hovered at or near the Mendoza line for a good chunk of the past month. However, he has three multi-hit games, and back-to-back two-hit efforts, pulling his average up to .219. That doesn't sound terribly impressive, but it's his highest mark since April 23.
