Dodgers Score: Game Updates vs Cubs on Sunday, Mookie Betts Shortstop, Kershaw Day

Your Dodgers look to take their first series in what feels like forever with a win over the Cubs. And it seems like Dave Roberts wants that win with what he’s got running out there today. Clayton Kershaw makes his 5th start of the year and for win number 201 in his career. So that’s a great start to a potential win. Adding to LA’s chances, Mookie Betts gets his first career start at shortstop after a few cameos there over the weekend.

Let’s take a look at the lineup Doc is running out there.

To go with Mookie playing short and batting lead off, Max Muncy stays up in the three hole after his two homer afternoon on Saturday. Rookie James Outman starts in center but remains down in the order.

Quote of the Day

“It’s remarkable,” manager Dave Roberts on James Outman. “It’s just fun watching him, continuing to make adjustments and the league still trying to learn them. Earning pitches, earning counts and when they make a mistake out over, he’s making them pay and that’s sort of the plan that we’re all trying to do.”
