After a grueling NLDS, the defending World Series Champion Chicago Cubs head back to the NLCS for a rematch with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Did you survive Game 5 of the NLDS? Of course, you did. And now you’re ready for more as the Chicago Cubs move on to face the Los Angeles Dodgers for an NLCS rematch.

A year ago, it was the Cubs who had baseball’s best record and home-field advantage as they waited for the winner of a decisive Game 5 against the Washington Nationals in D.C. The Dodgers came out victorious and on short rest, and the Cubs ultimately ended their long title drought.

Now we flip the script.

The Cubs, coming off Thursday night’s thriller, only had Friday as an off day as they shift gears for baseball’s best team in the Dodgers. L.A. is now the one trying to end a title drought, dating back to 1988.
