Sweeping success for Snakes
D-backs roll into NLCS
The Diamondbacks needed only one pitch to take the lead in Game 3 of the NLDS, and they never looked back as they completed a three-game sweep. Chris Young belted a leadoff homer, Livan Hernandez tossed six gutsy innings and the Arizona defense
turned four timely double plays.

Cubs' dream season ends
The Cubs struggled to come up with big hits in the first two games of the NLDS, and Game 3 at Wrigley Field was no exception. Chicago managed 11 baserunners in six innings against Arizona starter Livan Hernandez, but only pushed one across in that span on a groundout by Jason Kendall.
