Cubs 8 - Dodgers 4
Hey, hey! For the first time in 13 years, the Cubs are just one game away from being the National League Champions. The Cubbies took the lead in the first when Rizzo doubled to bring Fowler home. The Dodgers tied it up in the fourth. After that, it was all Cubbies.
Lester kept the Cubs in the game with seven innings, six strike outs, and one earned run.
The hero of the night was Addison Russell (again) with a two run homer in the sixth that brought home the winning run. The Cubs would add another five insurance runs to cap off the night in LA.
The NLCS will end where it should... at Wrigley Field!
The 2016 Chicago Cubs are 5 wins away from making history, and we will be counting down with them. Join us each game as we live and die with every pitch.
