NLCS Game 6
Kyle Hendricks makes Cubs history combining with Aroldis Chapman on a 2-hit shutout facing the minimum 27 Dodger batters in the game (3 Dodgers reached base and all were retired on double plays).  The game 6 victory puts the Cubs in the World Series for the first time in 71 years (1945). 

Hendricks gave up a single to Andrew Toles in the 1st inning and a 7th inning single to Josh Reddick, but that was it for the Dodgers offense.  Hendricks did not walk a batter and was replaced in the game by Aroldis Chapman in the 8th inning.  When Chapman got Yasiel Puig to ground into a double play, the Cubs secured the victory and a trip to the 2016 World Series.

For the offense, Kris Bryant & Ben Zobrist had 1st inning RBI's to give the Cubs an early lead over Dodgers pitcher, Clayton Kershaw.  Dexter Fowler had a 2nd inning RBI single and Willson Contreras & Anthony Rizzo helped give the Cubs the 5-0 victory. 

The Cubs facing 27 batters in the game is just the 2nd time in postseason history.  The first was Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series.
