    Default Dodgers take commanding 3-0 lead with a 6-1 victory

    Cubs come out like gang-busters, Dodgers cage them up like gang-bangers...

    Yu Darvish has a rocky first inning allowing a home run and 2 other rather sharply hit balls, but then settles in and even helps his own cause.

    Andre Ethier and Chris Taylor each hit solo homers off Cubs' ace Kyle Hendricks and the Dodgers chase him in the 6th after allowing 4 ER.

    Yu Darvish draws a walk with bases loaded in the 6th off Cubs' ace reliever Carl Edwards Jr. to score a crucial 4th run, giving the boys in blue a 3 run lead and a little breathing room.

    Throughout the game, and post-season, the Dodgers continue lay off bad pitches or foul them off, forcing high pitch counts in early innings. They also continue to put pressure on opposing pitchers by constantly getting runners on base and getting clutch hitting from almost the entire line-up.

    The Dodgers' bullpen has pitched what has amounted to a no-hitter, in 11 innings until a single in the bottom of the 9th broke the string. Conversely, the Cubs' pen has been a debacle, to put it mildly.

    One more! GO BIG BLUE!!

    EDIT: I called Chris Taylor "Dave". :P Thanks Trapper

    How do you walk the pitcher in that situation. That is so inexcusable. Darvish pitches one heck of a game and think he could have finished the 7th easlily.

    The Cubs played bad baseball all around. Multiple fielding errors. Bullpen walking the lead batter several times. Won’t win to many games with those kinds of errors.

    Taylor is a freaking beast! That game was soul crushing for the Cubbies. Awesome. Not into Asian guys but Darvish can get it!! *winky face*

    Had a car flag sighting on the way into the office today on the 10, we are one win away from full LA bandwagon car flag explosion. And, I'm not even mad. =)
