The Cubs held off the Dodgers last night behind Jake Arrieta. What will happen tonight?

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball 2017 MLB Post-Season prediction and discussion thread for Thursday, October 19th, 2017.

Yesterday we predicted that the Houston Astros would beat the New York Yankees 4-0 and that the Chicago Cubs would defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 behind a strong outing from Jake Arreita. The actual results were Yankees 5, Astros 0, and Cubs 3, Dodgers 2. With one right and one wrong this brings our prediction record this fall to 16-10.

Tonight Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers go up against Jose Quintana and the Cubs. It is hard to bet against Kershaw but my gut says the Cubs take this game 4-2.

What say you?
