It took five games for L.A.to officially end Chicago's repeat bid, with the Dodgers winning 11-1 at Wrigley Field on Thursday night to finish the series. By the looks in the eyes of the media and fans, the season is over for us. Chase Headley compared it to a college football game, with fans going crazy throughout. "I got lucky." Hupp is 54, from Southern California and has rooted for the Dodgers forever.
The Dodgers are still waiting to see which team they will face.
To be honest with oneself as a Chicago Cubs fan is no small task. "It's got to start happening tomorrow". We are not affiliated with nor do we endorse any musical artists or venues in this release. With the Yanks down 4-0, Judge homered to lead off the seventh, and Sanchez hit a sac fly. Game time is also set for 5:09 p.m. local time. "So today, they did".
The three middle games as scheduled for Oct. 27-29 in the home of the American League champions. Alex Wood gave up three runs in Game 4.
Davis entered with a 3-1 lead in the eighth. Baez golfed a decent curveball at the knees, and Contreras walloped a sinker left up in the zone on the outer half of the plate.
The Puerto Rican native hadn't been on base twice in a game the entire post season but, with a good cause to play for, he managed to reach base four times Thursday night, rounding the bases three times.
All seven of Chicago's runs in this series have come on homers. The fans saluted Arrieta's stellar effort in a win-or-go-home game.
Contreras' homer banged off the left-field videoboard and Baez's landed beyond the left-field bleachers on Waveland Avenue. There's also the added element of intimidation to consider, with Arrieta's release point often coming from behind the backs of right-handed hitters. But they didn't quite understand what the hubbub was about - they didn't even know about the game tonight. Manager Dave Roberts considers Taylor to be an "unsung hero" on the team.
Arrieta turns 32 in March and figures to land a huge deal in free agency. After that game, Hupp had to turn the ball over to the Dodgers but he was able to snap a few pics with Turner. Seager, last season's Rookie of the Year, could return if the Dodgers make the World Series. Though the Cubs pitching, especially the bullpen, is a bit more shaky than a year ago, I firmly believe the Cubs as an organization will make another playoff run in 2018.
The Dodgers have won 6 World Series titles and 21 National League pennants. In one appearance, the Cubs' Game 4 win, Wade Davis threw 48 pitches over two innings. The players who can do both, sometimes in the very same game, are the ones we can't stop watching.
