Samardzija in high school and later as a Cub
Chris Capuano (3-6, 4.54 ERA) vs Jeff Samardzija (6-9, 3.75 ERA)
Dodgers go for a franchise record 13 straight road wins and a shot at taking the four-game series in this, their third game of the stand at the Friendly Confines. The last team in the franchise to have won 12 road games in a row was called the Brooklyn Robins in 1924.
Here's hoping the team doesn't lay an egg today. Signs look good, as Cap has feathered his nest with a 7-0 and 1.55 ERA in his last nine starts against the Cubs. And, really, who hasn't?
