Whoa, Dodgers go up 2-0

The Dodgers pitched well until the end, got some timely hits — including another Manny Ramirez home run — and executed all game to spoil the party in Chicago with a 10-3 win. The Cubs were a mess. Until a 9th inning rally against Takashi Saito, they only got five hits. Every Cubs infielder committed an error in the field. So, improbably, the Dodgers sweep the best team in the National League in Chicago and can clinch the divisional series on Saturday at Dodger Stadium. ESPN
