    The Chicago Cubs will be looking to start the National League Championship Series on the right foot as they face the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Saturday. 

    After much speculation, the Cubs announced in the early afternoon that Jose Quintana would take the mound for Game 1. For the Dodgers, it's Clayton Kershaw. 

    Also set Saturday, the Cubs' 25-man roster stayed much the same as in the NLDS, with the exception of Hector Rondon replacing leftie Justin Wilson. 

    Here's how Joe Maddon has set the lineup for Game 1:

    1 Jon Jay – RF

    2 Kris Bryant – 3B

    3 Anthony Rizzo – 1B

    Willson Contreras – C

    5 Albert Almora Jr. - CF 

    6 Addison Russell - SS

    7 Kyle Schwarber – LF

    8 Javy Baez - 2B

    9 Jose Quintana – P

    First pitch is scheduled for 7:08 p.m. CST and the game will air on TBS.
