Kike Hernandez cranks 2 dingers (including a grand slam), Dodgers are about to clinch the NL pennant



The Los Angeles Dodgers need one win to advance to the World Series, and they’re in pretty damn good shape to get that win tonight. The Dodgers have a 9-1 lead on the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field through four innings on Thursday night, and Kike Hernandez has driven in five of those runs.

Hernandez cranked a Jose Quintana offering for a solo shot on the first pitch of the second inning.

And Hernandez (for all intents and purposes) put the game out of reach with a grand slam, oppo taco style in the top of the fourth.

The Dodgers have had outstanding plate appearances all night, and and made Quintana’s line (2 IP, 6 H, 6 ER) look much worse than he actually was.

Los Angeles is on the verge of reaching their first World Series since 1988.
