chicagocubsjerseyshop.us’s Tim McMaster and Jeff Nelson discuss Chris Taylor and Justin Turner being named co-MVPs of the NLCS
Last year, the Cubs boasted the best record in the Majors, and they beat the Dodgers in six games in the NLCS en route to winning the franchise’s first World Series championship since 1908. This year, it’s the Dodgers who had the best regular-season record, as well as one of the most dominating pitching staffs.
“We’re right where Addison Russell Jerseys we wanted to be since the start of the year,” said Taylor.
“It’s a disappointing season that we didn’t go to the World Series,” Chicago pitcher Jon Lester said, “but whenever you get on the plane to go home or get in the car to go home, you have to look at the positives, and the positives are we gave ourselves a chance. It didn’t happen this year. We got beat by a Anthony Rizzo Jerseys better team. You’ve got Javier Baez Jerseys to tip your hat sometimes.”
Kershaw, a three-time NL Cy Young Award winner looking for his first World Series ring, held the Cubs to three hits — including a homer by Kris Bryant with one out in the fourth — over six innings. All seven runs off Kershaw in the postseason came via the home run.
Clayton Kershaw strikes out five batters, allowing just one run on three hits over six innings to help the Dodgers win the NLCS
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he was thrilled for Kershaw, whose October struggles are being exorcised.
“The first thing that comes to mind is Clayton and how long he’s been a Dodger and how much he’s wanted this opportunity to win a championship,” said Roberts.

Chicago relied on the long ball. All of its runs in the series came on homers.
“I think if you look at the series, they did exactly what they needed to do to beat us: They executed their plan, pitched great and their bullpen was lights-out,” Bryant said. “That makes it tough to score runs.”
