World Series favorites, the Chicago Cubs took another step in their championship chase by rallying for four runs in the ninth inning of Game 4 to beat San Francisco Giants 6-5 and win their NL Division Series.
”You could see it coming. You could see little signs. We’ve done it before and the guys, we don’t quit,” Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler said. ”It’s a little more special doing it here. They for sure were thinking that they won it. But we play 27 outs and we don’t give up until we win.”
The Cubs will open the NL Championship Series at Wrigley Field this Saturday against the Dodgers or the Nationals.
The Cubs trailed 5-2 heading to the ninth last night and now, they are heading back to the NLCS after snapping San Francisco’s 10-game winning streak.
Now that they have eliminated the Giants, the Cubs are one step closer to the ultimate goal, winning the World Series, a feat they have not accomplished since 1908.
