And then magic occurred.
The Cubs scored four runs in the top of the 9th, their closer, Aroldis Chapman, came in and struck out the side, and not one pitch was below 100mph. Next up is the winner of the Dodgers / Nationals series. The NLCS starts Saturday. Three down, eight to go.
I'm betting on Nationals, because they deserve it, and because I want to see L.A. fire everyone again and spend a ton of money on mediocre free agents while wondering why they can't buy a championship.

Somewhere I read a claim that they set one of those records nobody wants: the most blown saves by a team that made it into the postseason* anyway.
* And even that comes with the official punctuation mark of Major League Baseball, the asterisk: they got to the playoffs by the skin of their teeth, in the wild-card era, and didn't get far.
