I must admit that I was not feeling very good as the game moved into the ninth. But 30 minutes, four runs, and five Giants pitchers later, my mood had changed. And when Chapman struck out the side to end the game, I was thrilled.
Two NLCS appearances in two consecutive years in unprecedented for Chicago baseball. The Cubs have home field, too. And with the Dodgers and Nationals having to play a game five, their pitching should be thin while the Cubs staff is raring and ready to go.
I'm hoping for a reversal of the results of last year's NLCS.
I've got to show a card, so here's what I've picked:
...Javier Baez making a play. He had another outstanding play at second base and then he drove home the winning run in the ninth....not a bad day's work!
