For the first time in decades, the Cubs won a playoff game without giving up a run. The San Francisco Giants and the Chicago Cubs showed incredible pitching tonight and this is going to be a hard fought series. Indeed, I was hoping that my Cubs would face the Mets. (I am equally concerned about facing the Los Angeles Dodgers down the road). However, for all Chicagoans, it was a sweet start to the series.
The Giants will face the Cubs again on Saturday in another pitcher’s duel. The Giants were a tough team to pull in the first round, but as Friedrich Nietzsche said, what does not kill us makes us stronger . . . even giants.
