Excitement is in the air...
Indeed it is.
Short and Sweep
A sweep as simple as 1, 2, 3
Torre soaks up 18th playoff series win
No matter what headline you prefer, it all means the same thing... Dodgers advance to the NLCS.
Last night, the Dodgers returned home to L.A. to play against the Cubs for game 3 in the NLDS.
In some way, I feel slightly bad since it's been 100 years since the Chicago Cubs have won a World Series title.
We also have had a drought of our own, and that may change. After 20 yrs since we have won a championship title, the Dodgers finally get passed the Division Series with a 3-1 victory over the Cubs.
It still feels unreal that the Dodgers are actually advancing deeper into the playoffs in quite a long while. Many people didn't believe they could beat the Cubs, who were a better team throughout the regular season. I didn't feel that way though. As good as they ended the season, I thought they would at least reach the NLCS. Sure enough, they did.
Video below is of the bottom of the 9th inning, as Johnathan Broxton strikes out Alfonso Soriano to end the game.
