Cubs Beat Dodgers To Avoid NLCS Sweep

The Chicago Cubs are still alive in the National League Championship Series.  

Javier Baez hit a pair of solo homers and Willson Contreras also went deep as they beat the Dodgers 3-2 in Game Four at Wrigley Field.  

Jake Arrieta walked five, but struck out nine while allowing just three hits and one run over six-and-two-thirds innings for the win.  

Wade Davis gave up a solo homer to Justin Turner in the eighth, but got the final six outs for the save. 

Alex Wood surrendered all three solo homers in four and two thirds frames to take the loss for Los Angeles.  Cody Bellinger also homered for the Dodgers, who are trying to reach their first World Series since 1988.  

Chicago now trails the best-of-seven series three-games-to-one.  The Cubs also host Game Five on Thursday.
