Don't hang your heads Cubs fans, there's not much your Cubbies could've done to win this game, when Kershaw brings his best stuff you can't expect to beat him. The Cubs pitching staff did their part, holding the Dodgers to only one run. Adrian Gonzalez was responsible for that run, he hit a home run in the second inning off Kyle Hendricks, and it would be the difference in the game. Kershaw mowed through a Cubs lineup that is filled with lethal bats, his performance was especially impressive in a hitters ballpark like Wrigley. Javy Baez, who has been nothing short of incredible for the Cubs this postseason, missed a home run by inches off Clayton Kershaw in the 7th inning which would've tied up the game. Besides for that one little scare, despite only having a one run lead, the game was never in question. Kershaw was absolutely in the heads of the Cubs hitters, he had them looking clueless all night, leading to atrocious AB's all night from the Cubs hitters. Kershaw had 6 strikeouts, allowed only 2 hits, and 1 walk in 7 innings worth of work. Kelly Jansen came in for a six out save just 2 days after throwing the most pitches he's ever thrown in his career. He wouldn't allow a base runner, striking out 4 Cubs hitters along the way to getting the save, and securing the game 2 victory for the Dodgers. The series in now all tied up at one game a piece, too bad for the Dodgers that Clayton Kershaw can't make every start or else they'd have a real shot of winning this series. Unfortunately, that is impossible, so this loss may suck Cubs fans, but you'll be winning this series in 6 games, and you'll be heading back to the world series for the first time in 71 years.
