Cubs Beat Dodgers To Avoid NLCS Sweep


The Cubs are still alive in the National League Championship Series.  Javier Baez hit a pair of solo homers and Willson Contreras also went deep as Chicago beat the Dodgers 3-2 in Game 4 at Wrigley Field.  Jake Arrieta walked 5, but struck out 9 while allowing just 3 hits and 1 run over 6 and 2/3 innings for the win.  

Wade Davis gave up a solo homer to Justin Turner in the 8th, but got the final 6 outs for the save.  Alex Wood surrendered all 3 solo homers in 4 and 2/3 frames to take the loss for Los Angeles.  Cody Bellinger also homered for the Dodgers, who are trying to reach their 1st World Series since 1988.  Chicago now trails the best of 7 series 3 games to 1.
