Oct 22, 2016; Chicago, IL, USA; Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo (44) hits a solo home run against the Los Angeles Dodgers during the fifth inning of game six of the 2016 NLCS playoff baseball series at Wrigley Field.
The offense chased Clayton Kershaw after five innings, Kyle Hendricks had his best outing of the playoffs, and the defense was outstanding as usual.
The final out came on a double play started by one of the Cubs’ playoff MVPs, Javier Baez.
But first baseman Anthony Rizzo is on record for getting the final out in Game 6, which puts him in the history books.
And afterwards, he had a post-game line for the ages: The Cubs have three more days before the World Series starts up, but they should enjoy this victory as much as they can.
