Chicago Cubs plane diverted to New Mexico on way to Los Angeles

As if the Los Angeles Dodgers needed another small advantage in the NLCS.

After a long Game 5 in Washington, the Chicago Cubs boarded their plane on Friday to fly to Los Angeles and prepare for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Dodgers. But they will have to wait just a little longer to actually get to LA.

The Cubs team plane had to be diverted to Albuquerque, New Mexico after there was a medical emergency. The play landed early at 6:30 am according to Danny Parkins of the Spiegel and Parkins Show on 670 The Score:

They have been on the ground for more than 3 hours now.

The Cubs have yet to name a Game 1 starter to oppose Clayton Kershaw but Jose Quintana and John Lackey are the two names that have been mentioned. First pitch is set for 7:08 p.m. CT at Dodger Stadium.
