Dodgers on brink of World Series after beating Cubs — NLCS

Japanese right-hander Kenta Maeda pitched one scoreless inning of relief as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-2 in the National League Championships Series opener on Saturday.

It has been 14 years since Little, as Boston's manager, kept a clearly gassed Pedro Martinez on the mound as the Yankees put together a three-run rally to tie Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series.

As for Maddon's late-game lineup decisions, there's no ambiguity there.

Several Dodgers staff members knew exactly who had caught it when he was shown on television and on the scoreboard raising the ball above his head.

Kenley Jansen was the winning pitcher for the Dodgers. "It's just about our guys". Remember that the bullpens on both sides are completely different. Davis would undoubtedly have been willing to pitch two innings, but judging by his struggles in the Division Series, was he capable? Lackey is a famously clutch playoff pitcher, but he had already pitched the night before (1 2/3 innings, giving up one walk and one hit) and was entering in the middle of an inning, something he had rarely done before. He chose the latter.

The Dodgers offense is not imposing by sheer power or production, but it has been effective all the same.

"I didn't think I had a chance to hit", Darvish said. "I don't think that's anything anyone is second-guessing".

Taylor became the first player in postseason history to hit a home run as a center fielder and a shortstop. His problem came when he walked Taylor ahead of Turner. Taylor took a high strike and three balls, and then clobbered the second strike, which was over the heart of the plate. "Put it in a bad spot". "But to take a chance on trying to learn a new swing and bet on yourself, and that's what he did". Nobody is a really great matchup against Turner, so it just did not work out. Your back's absolutely against the wall.

"They were riding that momentum on [Kyle] Schwarber's first-inning home run right there", Ethier said.

You have to imagine Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi looking at each other, smirking, sharing a silent appreciation of buying a game through free agency. We'll dive deep into a couple of stories, and give you the Cliff's Notes version of others. Daniel Murphy was the last major league player to do that in 2015 with the Mets. "So we'll come in with the same mindset and focus on getting that one win". Opportunities were lost from the first inning on, when the Cubs let Darvish off the hook with two runners on. It has been that sort of lopsided series for the Dodgers.

Los Angeles tacked on two runs in the eighth. The Cubs appeared to have the infield advantage.

Due up were righties Willson Contreras and Almora.

And Darvish even offered some help on offense.

This morning, all our slings and arrow are pointing toward Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon, and with good reason.

"I love him", Maddon said of Baez. He walked 2 batters and struck out a batter.

His LA story: Utley was a Phillies legend who has become an LA fan favorite over the past three seasons. Epstein knows well how dauntingly difficult the game can be, even for a roster built to sustain for years. The long-running rebuild had moved into high gear before anybody thought it possible.

Hendricks, who struggled with his command, allowed at least two home runs for the second consecutive post-season start. But the ninth-round pick (Marlins, 2011) forced his way into the mix with a strong season at the plate.

"I'm always itching to bat", Schwarber said afterward.

The tall tales of October continue. "Twitter doesn't count at all", he said.

Not in every game, apparently.
