Chicago Cubs

The Cubs punch their ticket to the NLCS with wild win over the Nationals



Post and Courier

The Chicago Cubs secured their spot in their second straight NLCS into the early morning hours Friday when they defeated the Washington Nationals 9-8 in a decisive Game 5 from DC. Nats ace Max Scherzer took the loss after a four run inning for the Cubs in the fifth (Scherzer two earned over one inning pitched). Runs in the sixth and seventh innings for the Cubs effectively held off a late Washington comeback as Wade Davis shut the door in the ninth for the Chicago win.
