The Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers meet again in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series. As was the case in Game 4, Game 5 is a must win for the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs managed to stay alive in Game 4 with a clutch 3-2 win over the Dodgers, who lead the series 3-1.
Game 4 was a home run derby with every run coming in the form of a longball. It was postseason baseball at its best with a dominant performance from Cubs veteran pitcher Jake Arrieta and a two home run night from Javier Baez.
Once again, it was the Cubs who got on the board first in the bottom of the 2nd inning with Willson Contreras’ first postseason home run, followed by the first of two longballs from Javy Baez. Cody Bellinger got on the board with a home run of his own in the top of the 3rd inning before Baez came back and extended the Cubs’ lead with another home run to put the Cubs up 3-1 in the bottom of the 5th. Justin Turner collected his 11th RBI of the postseason with yet another home run, but the Dodgers still fell short and the Cubs won 3-2.
Game 5 will feature Jose Quintana on the mound for the Chicago Cubs while Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw will look to lock in a series win in Game 5.
