Tomorrow the Cubs and Dodgers will play game two at 8:10pm CT at Dodger Stadium. Chris Volstad, who was called up from Triple-A Iowa last week will start for the Cubs and try to earn his first win. Volstad has a record of 0-7 and an ERA of 7.94 this season with the Cubs. Let's hope he can get his ERA down as well!
