Dodgers Knock Off Cubs

The Los Angeles Dodgers are playing like they’re double parked.

The Philadelphia Phillies failed to finish off the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday. That series will continue with Game 4 today.

But then the Dodgers completed their sweep of the Chicago Cubs Saturday night.

It’s now been more than a century since the Cubs won the World Series — hey, it’s been more than 60 years since the Cubs even played in a World Series.

But James Loney drove in a couple of runs with a first-inning double and the Dodgers never looked back.

I predicted the Dodgers and Phillies would advance to the league championship series, but I really didn’t think the Cubs would roll over the way they did. The Brewers could still force the Phillies to play five games before advancing to the championship series against the Dodgers.

A couple of American League teams will be trying to match the Dodgers' achievement on Sunday.

The Boston Red Sox will take a 2-0 series lead into their game at home against the Los Angeles Angels. And the Chicago White Sox will be trying to stop the Tampa Bay Devil Rays from completing a sweep when they play in Chicago.
