D-Backs Sweep Cubs Win Game Three 5-1 Advance To NLCS

For Chicago Cubs fans it's once again the mantra they have chanted for close to a century now"Wait Til Next Year!" For the Arizona Diamondbacks it is on to the N.L.C.S. and possibly their second World Series Championship since entering MLB in 1998, as they swept the Cubs winning game three of the N.L.D.S. 5-1.

Arizona center fielder Chris Young started the game off with a flourish hitting Chicago starter Rich Hill's first pitch of the game for a home run. Hill would last only 3 innings allowing 3 runs on 6 hits and the Cubs never recovered. D-Backs starter Livan Hernandez while not being the dominating hurler he was for the Florida Marlins when he was named the MVP of the 1997 World Series, kept working his way off the hook all game. Hernandez went six innings allowing just one run on five hits. Stephen Drew and Eric Byrnes also went deep for Arizona, who will face the surprising Colorado Rockies in the N.L.C.S.
