Dodgers Vs. Cubs Preview: Chicago Can Claim Series Win On Saturday

The Chicago Cubs have quietly gone 7-5 in their last 12 games, and after edging the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, they can claim a series victory with second straight win on Saturday. After the team removed Carlos Marmol from closer duties on Friday morning, replacements Rafael Dolis and James Russell did enough out of the bullpen to help the Cubs win. Russell turned in a shaky performance (two hits and one earned run allowed in 0.2 innings), while Dolis came in a shut the door for his second save of the year with a scoreless and hitless half-inning of baseball.

On Saturday, Chris Volstad (0-3, 6.11 ERA) is on the bump for the Cubs, while the Dodgers turn to resurgent lefty Chris Capuano (3-0, 2.73 ERA). Here is some basic information to help you find the game:

Game date/time: Saturday, May 5, 12:05 p.m. CT

Location: Wrigley Field, Chicago, IL

TV: CSN-Chicago
