The Chicago Cubs advanced to the National League Championship series for a second year in a row.
They edged past the Washington Nationals, 9 to 8, in last night’s fifth and final game of that divisional round series.
Shortstop Addison Russell drove in four runs to lead Chicago’s offensive attack in the game #5 win.
The Cubs will now play the Dodgers in game one of the NLCS tomorrow night in L.A.
