Cubs must overcome Kershaw to stay alive

CHICAGO -- For the first time in almost three weeks, the Los Angeles Dodgers will try to bounce back from a loss.

The stakes could not be much higher this time around. Los Angeles holds a decisive 3-1 lead over the Chicago Cubs in the National League Championship Series and has the opportunity to close out the series in Game 5 on Thursday night at Wrigley Field.

A win would vault the Dodgers into the World Series for the first time since 1988. A loss would push the series back to Los Angeles and give the defending champion Cubs a renewed sense of hope.
