the Cubs won the first two games of the NLCS in dominating fashion, outscoring the Padres 17-2. The Cubbies were one win away from a trip to the World Series … and then it happened. A loss in Game 3, followed by a crippling walk-off homer by Steve Garvey in Game 4 against ubercloser Lee Smith, set up a decisive Game 5, on the road, against a surging Padres squad.
