LA Dodgers defeat Chicago Cubs 10-3. Everyone say this with me: The Dodgers have a chance to go to the NLCS Saturday. The Cubs infield handed the game to the Dodgers with errors committed by each player on the horn which lead to five Dodger runs. Meanwhile Manny Ramirez struck for yet another postseason homerun and Chad Billingsley proved he could pitch under the glare of the spotlight going 6 2/3 innings giving up only one run on five hits and one walk with seven strikeouts. As for the Cubs their bats continued to be chilled apart from Derrek Lee and Mark DeRosa. Alfonso Soriano, Geovany Soto, Aramis Ramirez and Kosuke Fukudome were as quiet as the Chicago faithful at Wrigley. The potential clenching game will be at Dodger Stadium on Saturday.
