  • CHICAGO ILLINOIS- OCTOBER 07 Fans celebrate after the Chicago Cubs beat the San Francisco Giants 1-0 at Wrigley Field

Additional NLDS coverage can be found on BP Wrigleyville throughout the week. "I feel better and have maintained it throughout the year".

The Cubs got out to an early lead over old friend Jeff Samardzija, and, for a minute, it felt like we might be in for a smooth victory. Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks was pulled after 3 2/3 innings after he was struck in the arm by a line drive.

"At first it was (hard) because I wasn't used to some positions, but that's why we work in spring training and now I'm used to it", Baez said.

Chicago led the big leagues with 103 wins during the regular season and is hoping for its first World Series title since 1908. He was at his best at the Friendly Confines where he went 9-2 with a 1.32 ERA in 15 starts.

Cueto then started the eighth inning by dispatching Jason Heyward via a popout to first base. Hendricks tried a few warmup pitches and talked to manager Joe Maddon before departing Saturday night.

Hendricks delivered a two-run single to ignite the Cubs' three-run second inning.

Where: Wrigley Field, Chicago, Il.

"It's time to play ball", he said while standing in front of the home dugout.

Do you think Hendricks can silence the Giants bats like Lester did?

3 things we learned from Redskins' win over Eagles
Quarterback Kirk Cousins said it was no surprise how well Davis played in his first start since signing with his hometown team. The way the offensive line played not he run, quite frankly, a number of guys could have been back there and gained yards.

In the BCB roundtable discussion we had on Thursday, I said that Travis Wood and Mike Montgomery would be huge in this game because of the left-handed character of the Giants lineup.

But Wood pitched well too.

Wood's home run (the tenth of his surprisingly distinguished offensive career) gave the Cubs their third pitcher-provided RBI of the night and a three-run lead.

Brandon Belt has historically hit Hendricks well, going 3-for-7 lifetime with a home run and a pair of RBI. "I'm sure they didn't want either pitcher to get out there and get caught in a situation where you lose one of them, especially in a short series like this".

A slight incident occurred in the bottom of the sixth. The wind knocked it down though, and it settled into the basket at the top of the wall. Max Scherzer gave up all four runs over six innings to take the loss for Washington. The left-hander got some help from his usual catcher, with David Ross throwing out Gorkys Hernandez trying to steal second in the first and picking off wild-card hero Conor Gillaspie at first in the third. He seemed clearly safe, but the Giants challenged, and replay showed that Baez might have been off the bag for a split second towards the end of his slide. The video is not yet available, but you should watch it if you would like to form your own take. Anthony Rendon nicked him for a two-run single in the third and Trea (tray) Turner lifted a sacrifice fly the following inning. Hector Rondon, who had been shaky since returning from injury, was anything but tonight, getting Buster Posey to strike out and Hunter Pence to ground out. Chapman pitched a flawless ninth for his second save of the series. He hit a home run in the bottom half of the inning.

The bullpen's performance was the major story in this game. It looked like a no-doubter.

"Once he left the game, it was all hands on deck for us", said rookie Carl Edwards Jr., who threw a scoreless inning in his postseason debut.

Starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks left Game 2 after he was struck by a line drive in the fourth inning. If so, some pitching plans will have to be readjusted. Madison Bumgarner continues to dazzle the baseball world in October.
