That's right, we aren't going down without a fight! Cubs take the do or die game 4 with two cracks from Baez and one from Contreras.

In a change of pace, Arrieta went 6.2 innings only allowing one run. Davis pitched two hard innings to send us to game 5!

It's must win tomorrow night at 7pm. Let's go!!!

It was a tough, wet afternoon at Wrigley for the Cubs in NLDS Game 4, so it's back to DC for the series finale on Thursday. Kyle Hendricks takes the mound for Chicago and Tanner Roark Max Scherzer Gio Gonzalez will (most likely) take the mound for the Nats. Game time is 7 pm Central.

Hendricks has a 1.98 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP in eight postseason starts. That's Cub.

Go Cubs go!

Who are the underdogs now? Kyle Hendricks pitched one of the best games of his career only allowing two hits and three walks. Both of those hits came in the first two innings. Edwards Jr and Davis helpped to hold the Nats in the 8th and 9th to cap off this shutout.

Hendricks and the pen were backed up by some clutch hitting from Rizzo (2 RBIs), Bryant (1 RBI), and Jay. 

The Cubs now lead the Nats 1-0 in this best of 5 National League Division Series and are just 10 wins away from the prize!

Join us Saturday at 4:30pm CST for game 2!

This marks the second time in Cubs history that they've reached the postseason in three consecutive seasons. It was last accomplished by the 1906-1907-1908 Cubs, who won the World Series in each of those latter two years.

This year's squad is also on a roll, having gone 17-12 in August and 19-9 in September. Since the All-Star break, the Cubs' starters have posted a 3.36 ERA. Kyle Hendricks has been particularly stellar, with a 2.19 ERA during that stretch, and Kyle Schwarber's batting average after the break is 80 points higher than it was before the All-Star break, along with a nearly 200-point increase in his OPS.
