Dodgers’ Rich Hill (12-5, 2.12 ERA) vs. Cubs’ Jake Arrieta (18-8, 3.10 ERA)

Last year’s National League Cy Young Award winner, Arrieta, did not quite repeat the dominance this regular season, but he still logged a tremendous 1.08 WHIP while striking out 190 opponents. He threw six smooth innings during his lone NLDS start against the San Francisco Giants last week. This will be Hill’s third game of the postseason, after his Game 2 outing against Washington and short-rest start in Game 5. In total, he’s allowed five runs in seven innings. He has not been as sharp as he was during the regular season, hanging a few curveballs that have proved costly.

The last time Arrieta started a game at Dodger Stadium that began at 5 p.m., last August, he threw a no-hitter. Shadows will again be a factor.
