The Dodgers brought their NL Division series to a close with a 3-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs last night here at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers swept the three-game series, keeping the Cubs a full 100 years since their last World Series win and another year away from the chance. For the Dodgers it's the first post-season series win in 20 years, and an exciting wrap-up to their first year under the direction of Joe Torre. Now the Dodgers will face either Philadelphia or Milwaukee in a best-of-seven series that will start on Thursday. Could this be the year Big Blue goes all the way?
