CHICAGO — What more can you say about the Cubs? They are never out of any game, and just keep getting better every game. They are also having more fun every game.
Javier Baez, who had an error in Game 3, got the start in Game 4. In his first at-bat, Baez hit a three-run home run to put the Cubs up 4-2.
The Cubs had to use seven relievers in the clincher, including Trevor Cahill, who gave up the tying runs in the 6th to pinch-hitter Brandon Moss. But right fielder Jorge Soler threw out the potential go-ahead runner Tony Cruz at home plate to keep it 4-4.
Naturally, the game didn’t stay tied for long. In the bottom of the inning, Anthony Rizzo homered for the second game in a row. Then in the next inning, so did Kyle Schwarber, who hit a majestic shot over everything in right field.
Hector Rondon got the save in the 6-4 win, and the Cubs won the series in four games.
The NLCS begins Saturday. The Cubs will find out who they’re playing Thursday night when the Mets and Dodgers play a decisive Game 5 in their series.
