Cubs lead, 1-0

Jeff Samardzija and Kyle Hendricks will be on the bump at Wrigley Field. Game One gave us a marvelous pitching duel, with Javier Baez's solo blast providing the lone run of the contest. One of the better storylines tonight will be Samardzija finally pitching in a playoff game at Wrigley Field. The righty was drafted by the Cubs in 2006 and was with the organization until 2014, when he was shipped to the Athletics for Addison Russell, Dan Straily, and Billy McKinney.
