Dodgers one win away from first World Series since 1988

CHICAGO – Yu Darvish stepped outside the batter's box as his eyes registered the location of the last pitch. It was a fastball from Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr., like the three pitches before it, and it was not a strike, like the three before it. Darvish roared and chucked his bat into the grass. The trajectory of the lumber was not majestic – it felt more visceral, the stunned reaction of Darvish seeing fortune smile on the Dodgers.
