The Cubs celebrate an NLDS victory over the Giants in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO – It might not have been a sweep, but a trip to the Bay Area ended up being a treat after all for the Cubs.
While they stressed out their fans for the first eight innings of Game 4 of the National League Division Series against the Giants, they would bring their best for the ninth inning in an incredible rally.
Down by three heading into the final inning and three outs from returning home for a decisive Game 5 at Wrigley Field, the Cubs scored four runs to take the lead off a beleaguered Giants’ bullpen. Aroldis Chapman shook off a rough night on the mound in Game 3 to shutdown the Giants’ bats in the ninth to clinch and NLDS victory for the Cubs.
It’s the second time in as many years that the Cubs have won a playoff series and is just their fourth since winning the World Series in 1908. Their three-run comeback in the ninth inning was the best in the National League playoffs since 1986.
WGN News was in San Francisco getting reaction from players and front office member of the team as they celebrated clinching a spot in the National League Championship Series.
Here are some of the interviews from the celebration.
