ESPN+ will host Tuesday’s matchup between the LA Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs with first pitch set for 7:40 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and will air on SportsNet LA in the Dodgers market and on Marquee Sports Network in the Cubs market. Trevor Bauer will go for the Dodgers while the Cubs’ starter is currently undecided.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime MLB matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind — you’ll need a subscription to ESPN+. You can subscribe to ESPN+ on the ESPN website, where you can get a monthly subscription for $5.99, or get the ESPN/Disney/Hulu bundle for $13.99 per month.

The first game of this series in Chicago got rained out on Monday night. So the teams are playing a day-night double-header at Wrigley Field. The first game gets going at 2:20 p.m. ET with Clayton Kershaw taking on Kyle Hendricks.

The Cubs enter Tuesday having lost three straight series, losing seven of their past nine games overall. The Cubs have been inconsistent on offense while sporting the 4th-worst team ERA in League at 5.01. The Chicago pitching staff is also bottom five in BABIP and HR/FB ratio so far this season. This bodes well for a Dodgers offense that was very stagnant against the Brewers over the weekend. L.A. is also in a dog fight early on in the NL West with the San Francisco Giant and San Diego Padres.
