It took just two batters but the Chicago Cubs are already on the scoreboard in Game 3 of the NLCS.
After leadoff hitter Ben Zobrist grounded out to second, left fielder Kyle Schwarber decided it was a great time to mash a tater against Los Angeles Dodgers’ starter Yu Darvish.

The homer put the Cubs up 1-0 early in a crucial Game 3. It was also Schwarber’s 4th postseason homer at Wrigley Field, the most of any player in franchise history.
Chicago trails 2-0 in the series and is looking to get right back in it with a win tonight.
