Chicago Cubs are down – but they’re far from out in this NLCS showdown

A chance to re-live history
Heading into Game 4 last season, Chicago trailed two games-to-one in the best-of-seven. Guess what? If they win Game 3 behind Kyle Hendricks, that’s exactly where they’ll find themselves in 2017.
Hendricks is the guy you want on the mound at Wrigley in a back-against-the-wall type of game. And, remember, halfway through last year’s series against Los Angeles, the Cubs batted around .180 and couldn’t get anything going offensively. Then, out of nowhere, the offense turned it on, going on a tear to win the series in six games.
It won’t be easy. And I’m not saying they will pull it off. But this ball club has the experience and talent to make it happen. It’s time to adopt the World Series mentality when the Cubs trailed three games-to-one last year.
Next: Underdogs? That's just fine with the Chicago Cubs
Win one game. Then another. Then another.
One pitch. One out. One inning at a time.
