A look at what's happening all around the majors today:
The Cubs can take an NLCS lead back to Wrigley Field by winning Game 5 in Los Angeles. Chicago thumped the Dodgers 10-2 on Wednesday night, tying the series 2-2 behind slump-busting performances from Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell. Jon Lester makes his second start of the series after allowing one run in six innings in a Game 1 victory. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says he won't ask ace Clayton Kershaw to pitch on three days' rest, and instead will go with Kenta Maeda, who has a 9.00 ERA in two postseason appearances and allowed three runs in four innings in the NLCS opener.
