#Cubs Hendricks vs Mets, Game 3 NLCS
Kyle Hendricks gets the start Tuesday night at Wrigley Field as the Cubs face the Mets in Game 3 of the NL Championship Series. The forecast will be delightful for October with temps projected in the mid 60s. Here’s the lineup:
Hendricks won both of his career starts against the Mets, posting a 0.69 ERA in those outings. He started Game 2 of the NLDS against the Cardinals, and did not get a decision. He gave up three runs over 4 2/3 innings in taht game, and each of the runs came on solo home runs.
*Jorge Soler is back in the lineup after not playing in Game 2. Soler was starting in right. He’s batting .455 in the postseason.
*Daniel Murphy has homered in each of his last four games, and was batting .357 (10-for-28) with five home runs and eight RBI this postseason. Murphy will look to join Carlos Beltran (2004 Astros) as the only players to homer in five consecutive postseason games. Murphy’s five home runs is a record for a Mets player in a single postseason. He is also tied with Mike Piazza for most career postseason home runs as a Met (five).
