Dodgers-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The playoff-bound Los Angeles Dodgers have gotten by with Roberto Hernandez turning in brief starts this month in part because Clayton Kershaw has preceded him in the rotation and provided a fresh bullpen.

Kershaw didn't go very deep in his latest turn, so the Dodgers could be looking for a few more innings from Hernandez on Saturday as they try for a third straight win in this four-game set with the Chicago Cubs.

Los Angeles (88-66), which clinched a postseason spot Friday after Milwaukee's 4-2 loss in Pittsburgh, got five innings from Kershaw in Friday's 14-5 win before turning it over to the bullpen after the likely NL Cy Young Award winner went at least eight innings in his previous seven starts.
