LOS ANGELES — The Cubs and Dodgers meet in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series tonight.
The teams split the first two games in Chicago.
Rich Hill gets the start for Los Angeles after failing to make it out of the fifth inning in his two starts in the NLDS due to blisters. The Cubs go with workhorse Jake Arrieta.

Maddon has made some changes in Chicago’s starting lineup for Game 3, dropping slumping outfielder Jason Heyward.
Heyward is 1 for 6 in the first two games of the series. He has been replaced by Jorge Soler, who is 0 for 2 in the NLCS.
With Jake Arrieta starting for the Cubs, Maddon wanted Miguel Montero behind the plate instead of Willson Contreras. Montero had a pinch-hit, grand slam in the series opener.
Maddon tweaked his lineup to move struggling Anthony Rizzo from hitting third to the cleanup spot and Addison Russell from fifth to seventh.
Toronto beats Cleveland:
Josh Donaldson homered to give Toronto a long-awaited lead, and the Blue Jays finally broke through with the bats, beating the Cleveland Indians 5-1 on Tuesday to avert a sweep in the AL Championship Series.
The Indians still lead the series 3-1, but Donaldson and a poised Aaron Sanchez handed them their first loss of this postseason.
Dodger on the board, 1-0 in the third
