Cubs in the Playoffs!

Post by Lionhunter » Wed Oct 07, 2015 4:18 pm

Orange Lutheran's Gerrit Cole stands in the way of my Cubs' playoff aspirations. The Cubs counter with Jake Arrietta.

Cubbies take the early lead 1-0 after 1 inning.

3-0 Cubs now on Schwarber's two run homer in the 3rd.

4-0 Cubs on a Dexter Fowler solo home run. Going into the bottom of the 5th now.

Official game now...4-0 Cubs after 5.

New pitcher for Pittsburg. Gerrit Cole is young, and the Pirates are very good. Gerrit will get many more chances to star in playoff games in the seasons ahead (or in this season, if the Cubs can't hold the lead).

New Pirate pitcher Tony Watson hits Cub pitcher Jake Arrieta (after Arrieta had hit two Pirates) benches emptied. Pirates are getting frustrated?

Bottom of the 9th now, still 4-0 Cubs. Arrieta still pitching.

First Cubs' playoff win since 2003. Feel sorry for the Pirates who had the second best record in baseball with 98 wins, and now are one and done for the second year in a row.

Now the Cubs (who had the third best record in baseball with 97 wins) must face the St. Louis Cardinals who had THE best record with 100 wins.

What a division. Go Cubs!

Cubs win the series defeating St. Louis 3 games to 1. On to their first NLCS since the Bartmann disaster in 2003.

Go Cubbies!
