Chicago Cubs News
Behind a stellar outing from pitcher Jon Lester and a game-breaking home run by Addison Russell the Chicago Cubs now find themselves one win away from making history. The Chicago Cubs were able to defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers by a score of 8-4 and now take a 3-2 lead back to Wrigley Field for game 6 tomorrow. Manager Joe Maddon said, “The city of Chicago has got to be buzzing. We’re not going to run away from anything. It’s within our reach right now.” The Dodgers are not planning on taking a trip to Chicago just for one game, however. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, “That’s a game we expect to win,” and for good reason as the Dodgers will be starting ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw for the game. The Cubs actually found themselves in this same position 13 years ago against the Marlins and eventually lost in seven games. “We’ve heard the history, but at the same time we’re trying to make history,” center fielder Dexter Fowler said.

After being shut out in back to back games for the first time ever in postseason history the Chicago Cubs broke out in a big way last night in their massive game 4 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

You’ve got to brush off and get ready for tomorrow.” Kenta Maeda will take the mound for the Dodgers while Chicago will counter with Jon Lester. Maeda, who’s struggled this postseason, said of his approach to tonight’s game, “I’m not going to be too careful even though I haven’t been pitching well in the postseason. What I’m going to be really focused on is just pitching well and not worry too much about what I have done in the past.”
Jake Arrieta will be the pitcher for the Chicago Cubs as game 3 of the NLDS takes place tonight at Dodger Stadium. Arrieta is very comfortable in Los Angeles considering when he last played there he pitched a no-hitter. Arrieta stated in regards to his starts, “You try to tackle them accordingly. Use some knowledge that I have from the past to kind of help. But it’s just another game on a big stage, and we’re all prepared for it.” Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley on Arrieta, “We know he’s tough. He’s got electric stuff. For every good pitcher, you try to capitalize on their mistakes. They all make mistakes, some more than others, and you have to try to be ready for those mistakes and try to take advantage of those.” Rich Hill will take the mound for the Dodgers as the winner of this game will end up taking a 2-1 lead in the series.

If we make a mistake, we’re not going to blame it on a curse or anything else like that.”
