Wins to the Championship

The guys decided to wake the bats up tonight! After giving up four runs, the Giants were forced to pull their starter, Jeff Samardzija, in the third, but Kyle Hendricks followed soon after in the fourth after being hit in the arm. Luckily, the x-rays came back negative, and the bullpen shut out the Giants.

One highlight of the night was Travis Wood hitting a homer during his relief stint. It was his first homer since 2014 and only the second time in history that a reliever has hit a home run in the post season! Oh, and he also got the win!

The Cubbies will be in San Francisco on Monday ... look for some brooms at the park.

The 2016 Chicago Cubs are 9 wins from making history, and we will be counting down with them. Join us each game as we live and die with every pitch.
