The team has rolled through their first five playoff games including an NLDS sweep of the Wild Card winners, the Arizona Diamondbacks. They're now up 2-0 on the Chicago Cubs after winning Game 2, 4-1. Justin Turner smashed a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth which helped his team capture the big win. Kenley Jansen picked up the pitching victory while Cody Bellinger was 2-for-3 in the game and Turner finished 2-for-4 with four RBI to help his team get the win.

After winning last year's World Series in thrilling fashion and going 92-70 this season, the Chicago Cubs are now in danger of being eliminated with two more losses. The team has managed just three runs over the first two games of the series. Addison Russell had the only RBI in Game 2, while Albert Almora Jr. had the two RBI in the first game of this series.
