The Chicago Cubs Are On The Brink Of Winning Their First Pennant In 71 Years

October 21, 2016

As was the case in 2003, the Chicago Cubs return home with a three games to two lead in the NLCS in a bid to end a long pennant drought.

In 2003, after losing game 5 at Florida vs the Marlins, the Cubs led (3-0) in the top of the 8th inning of game 6 in a bid to win their first pennant in 58 years. They failed to do so.

Now in 2016, the Cubs led by shortstop Addison Russell, who hit key home runs in both games four and five at L.A. vs the Dodgers, have the (3-2) series leads after winning a pair of seemingly interminable, essentially boring games, in numbers 4 and 5.

Game 6 is Saturday night in Wrigley Field.
