Cubs-Brewers Set For National League Tiebreaker

Cubs-Brewers Set For National League Tiebreaker

Jon Lester, their October-tested starter was on the mound.

Overall, the Cubs' bullpen has been pretty shaky lately, as Steve Cishek and Justin Wilson all finished September with an ERA above 4. Asked who it was that was running their mouths, Baez wasn't specific - though it's worth noting that Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar said Sunday that the Cubs "know they have a problem tomorrow", referring to the Game 163 that his team won.

Wolters, a reserve catcher who entered as part of a double switch in the bottom of the 12th, came up with runners at the corners and drove in Trevor Story with a liner back up the middle off Kyle Hendricks, quieting the Wrigley Field crowd of 40,151 on a crisp fall night.

You certainly get nervous when you hear about a pitcher's forearm, because of its connection to the elbow.

Milwaukee pitching silenced the Cubs' bats in a 3-1 victory that sends them to the National League Division Series, while their opponents suddenly face elimination.

Now they had a chip on their collective shoulders the size of a '68 Impala, and a chance to show everyone what they were made of. They're focused on the Lester with the Cubs now - and lately he's been very good. Though he hasn't faced opposing hitters in a few weeks, the right-hander has a 1.96 career postseason ERA in 21 appearances and should provide Joe Maddon some stability in the later innings. He kept it going in the postseason. The Cubs defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2015 to spark a run to the NLCS, which ended at the hands of the New York Mets. When Lester struck out Matt Holliday to end the sixth with a man on second, he screamed and pumped his fist, as if he could transfer his energy to his teammates through osmosis.
