A regulation baseball game consists of 27 outs. In the playoffs, nothing comes easy, and nothing is ever guaranteed in baseball. On Saturday, the Cubs will have to beat one of the best pitchers of all-time, and the pitcher who shut them out in game two at Wrigley Field: Clayton Kershaw.

And there’s a very good probability that if a game 7 is necessary at Wrigley Field, the Cubs’ll face the other pitcher who shut them down in the series, Rich Hill.

The primary difference this time around though, is that whatever was ailing both Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell during the postseason has apparently subsided, as they’ve both found their stroke at the plate. These are exciting times we’re living in friend, and come Monday, the world will have a very different feel to it than it does today.

Len Kasper joins Lin Brehmer on the XRT Morning Show at 8:30am Mondays & Fridays to talk about your NL Central champion Chicago Cubs as they run into the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. Len & Lin: never letting the pressure exceed the pleasure, on 93XRT.
