The Chicago Cubs bid to return to the World Series after 71 years had a pretty big obstacle in its way: Clayton Kershaw, the most intimidating big time hurler in the business, took the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5. But destiny spoke louder than Kershaw‘s vicious fastball, and the Dodgers silent bats concurred as the Cubs beat LA 5-0 to advance. They’ll play the similarly destiny-driven Cleveland Indians for the title.
Kershaw called it like he saw it afterwards, saying: “Give credit to the Cubs. They played well the whole series, started swinging the bats the last three games. They’re just a better team.” World Series starts Tuesday night in Cleveland.
