Cubs (finally) beat Dodgers

The Chicago Cubs finally got their long-awaited chance at a Game 4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

And Micah Hoffpauir took advantage of it.

Too bad his grand slam came four months too late for me, or any Cubs fan for that matter, to give a damn.

Hoffpauir hit a fifth inning grand slam which helped lift the North Side Nine to a 5-3 win against the Manny Ramirez-less Los Angeles Dodgers.

It is the team's first run-scoring hit against the Dodgers since Mark DeRosa took Derek Lowe yard in Game 1 of the NLDS.

Neither DeRosa nor Lowe took part in this Game 4 as each has moved on to Cleveland and Atlanta, respectively.

The Cubs are 1-0 in games that don't matter.
