The Chicago Cubs have won the NLDS three games to one defeating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 at Wrigley Field. Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber hit home runs for the Cubs. In all, they hit 10 HR in the NLDS off Cardinals' pitching. 100 wins for the Cardinals just wasn't enough. This means that for the first time since 2007 a team other than the Phillies, Cardinals or Giants will represent the National League in the World Series.
The Cubs advance to the NLCS for the first time since 2003. They will find out who they play on Thursday night when the Los Angeles Dodgers host the New York Mets in Game 5 of the NLDS. The Mets had a chance to clinch the NLDS tonight, but Clayton Kershaw limited them to one run over seven innings as the Dodgers evened the series with a 3-1 victory. It doesn't get any easier for the Mets as they face Zack Greinke in Game 5, but the Mets counter with Jacob de Grom.
The NLCS will commence on Saturday with the Cubs visiting either New York or Los Angeles.
