Game 5. Dodgers at Cubbies

Cubbies win the series in five games. All their wins came at Wrigley Field, what a roller
coaster of a ride.

Jon Lester mowed down 11 Los Angeles(NL) batters at Wrigley Field as the
Chicago (NL) Cubs beat the Los Angeles(NL) Dodgers by the count of 3 to
0.

Lester(2-0) put on a good performance. He gave up just 6 hits and 2 walks in
7 and 2/3 innings lowering his ERA to 2.37. Lester was helped out by Wade
Davis who pitched a perfect ninth and recorded his 4th save.

Rich Hill(1-2) was tagged with the loss. Although losing the contest, he
whiffed 11 batters in 6 and 1/3 innings. The Chicago (NL) fans were thrilled
by the performance put forth by Lester, but it was clearly his strikeouts
that they enjoyed most. ‘When he reached 10 strikeouts the fans showed him
their appreciation with a loud cheer.’ Joe Maddon said following the game.
