MORRISSEY: On a desperate night, finally signs of life from the Cubs

MORRISSEY: On a desperate night, finally signs of life from the Cubs

When he left the game in the seventh, a standing ovation followed him to the dugout. First, it staved off elimination for Chicago.

"From our end, it's easy to sit here and say 'We'd love to have them both back' because we would, for what they do on the field and what we think of them off the field and what they contribute off the field", Epstein said. 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. And he was absolutely scintillating on Wednesday night. "The process was horrible", Maddon said. They should be thanked for not waiting until the later innings or dragging the Cubs back West for no good reason.

That gamble has paid off brilliantly.

The Dodgers, a villain with humanity, obliged and did one quick to the back of the head in Game 5, ending all feeling before anyone had a chance to appreciate the mercy. I saw a piece recently lamenting the demise of the Taco Bell (A TACO BELL?!?!) near the ballpark.

"Three minutes before I came down to the cage to get ready for the game I texted her and I said, 'Hey, where are you going to be watching the game?' and she said, 'I'm going to go to your grandparents, they got the generator going on and we're gonna power on the TV and we're gonna watch that game there". Another clunker? A 27-strikeout perfect game? "I had that mindset that I was going to make it into tomorrow". But at some point the talk of hangovers and recovering in time for brunch made things feel a bit stretched. He also pitched in Game 4 of last year's NLCS against Chicago, tossing two scoreless innings. "You look at the 2004 Boston team". "You can't bottle the exact circumstances of one year to another". Some people also drove to Dodger Stadium and hung out along Stadium Way waving Dodger flags and taking selfies near the arena sign. Baker's two-year deal with the club is expiring. Their pitchers delivered a 1.64 ERA to the Cubs' 5.36. Store employees at the Pasadena location said their business would stay open as long as customers wanted to get their gear. Mr. Crane was extremely generous for him to do what he did.

They beat Washington in a grueling NL Division Series, too.

But the long ball was a frequent issue in the last part of the season. Some Cubs fans flew from Florida to attend. Most importantly, though, is the added movement on Arrieta's pitches.

Now you take inventory and fix holes. Video replays seemed to indicate Granderson never made contact with the pitch.

Davis entered with a 3-1 lead in the eighth.

"It's awesome, 29 years [since the franchise's last World Series]", Jansen said. "I only started doing this stuff a few years ago, after I retired", he said.

That's just scratching the surface. The right-hander, who is eligible for free agency after the season, struck out nine while pitching 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball.
