Analysis: Turner's homer was his second of the postseason and gave him 10 RBIs in five games. He's 9 for 21 in these playoffs and a lifetime .377 hitter with four home runs and 22 RBIs in 23 postseason contests. He is 13 for 18 with runners in scoring position (.722), including 6 for 8 this year.

10/15/2017 Kenley Jansen, LAD, P
Kenley Jansen recorded his first save, allowing no runs on no hits in 1.1 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-2 on Saturday. Jansen struck out four, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.00 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Jansen struck out all four batters he faced to finish out Game 1 and continue his dominance against Cubs hitters. The ace closer has yielded just one run over 20 2/3 innings in 18 meetings - including the postseason - against Chicago since the start of the 2014 season. The Dodgers will be in good hands if they keep having late leads the rest of the way.
10/15/2017 Kenta Maeda, LAD, P
Kenta Maeda improved to 1-0, allowing no hits over 1.0 scoreless inning, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-2 on Saturday. Maeda did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.00 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: The career starter has emerged as a real weapon in relief for the Dodgers this postseason, garnering two wins and one hold while throwing three scoreless innings in three appearances. Maeda held right-handed hitters to a .214 average during the regular season, and the Dodgers will continue to use him in key spots during this series.
10/15/2017 José Quintana, ChC, P
Jose Quintana allowed two runs on two hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 on Saturday. Quintana struck out four, ending the game with a 3.60 ERA and 0.80 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Despite pitching briefly in Thursday's Game 5 clincher over the Nationals in the NLDS, Quintana faced the minimum amount of hitters through the first four innings before running into some trouble in the fifth. It's still a solid performance from the left-hander, who owns a sharp 1.59 ERA and a 0.79 WHIP through two starts and one relief apperance this postseason.
10/15/2017 Héctor Rondón, ChC, P
Hector Rondon fell to 0-1, allowing one run on one hit in 0.1 innings, as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 on Saturday. Rondon struck out one, ending the game with a 27.00 ERA and 3.00 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: After being left off the Cubs' roster for the Division Series, Rondon entered with the game tied in the sixth inning and promptly served up a crucial home run to Chris Taylor. The former closer likely won't see too much time in high-leverage spots the rest of the way unless Joe Maddon finds himself in a real bind.
10/15/2017 Brandon Morrow, LAD, P
Brandon Morrow did not allow a hit or walk in 0.2 scoreless innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-2 on Saturday. Morrow struck out one, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.00 WHIP on the season.
10/15/2017 Clayton Kershaw, LAD, P
Clayton Kershaw allowed two runs on four hits and one walk in 5.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-2 on Saturday. Kershaw struck out four, ending the game with a 3.60 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Kershaw was touched for a two-run homer by Albert Almora - the fifth long ball he's surrendered in 11 1/3 innings this postseason - but was otherwise solid before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fifth. Likely tabbed to pitch a potential Game 5 in Wrigley Field, the Dodgers' prized hurler went 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in two starts in Chicago during last year's NLCS.
10/15/2017 Chris Taylor, LAD, 2B
Chris Taylor went 2 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Saturday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 5-2. The homer was his first of the season. He ended the game with a .500 batting average.

Analysis: Like he's done many times this season, Taylor gave the Dodgers a huge spark by belting an opposite-field home run in the sixth inning that snapped a 2-2 tie. The versatile leadoff man has hit safely in each of L.A.'s four postseason games, going 5 for 17 with four runs scored and two RBIs during that stretch.
