They just didn’t get the result they were seeking, and now they’re counting on John Lackey to save their season.
Jorge Soler, Kris Bryant and Kyle Schwarber each went deep and the Chicago Cubs set a major league postseason record with six homers Monday in an 8-6 victory over St. Louis to go up 2-1 in the NL Division Series.
The Cardinals, tops in the majors with 100 wins this season, won at least one playoff series in each of the previous four years. But a third straight loss would send them home and put the Cubs in the NLCS for the first time since 2003.
