Cubs, Lester face Dodgers, Kershaw in series finale

LOS ANGELES -- The law of averages reveals that the staff aces for the Cubs and Dodgers would meet at least once in the last decade, or since Los Angeles' Clayton Kershaw made his major league debut in 2008 -- two years later than Chicago's Jon Lester.

But they haven't, which adds spine-tingling anticipation to the finale of their three-game series Sunday at Dodger Stadium when they finally work from the same mound in a game. As heavyweight matchups go, this is the biggest in 2017.

Lester has three World Series rings, finished in the top three in Cy Young voting three times, was last year's National League Championship Series MVP (versus the Dodgers) and has 149 career victories. Kershaw has won the Cy Young award three times, has 133 career wins and pitched three times in Los Angeles' NL Division series win against the Nationals, once in relief to clinch the series that sent the Dodgers to the NLCS against the Cubs.
