Yasmani Grandal drives in three runs, Justin Turner homers and Rich Hill, Joe Blanton, Grant Dayton and Kenley Jansen shut down the Cubs at Dodger Stadium

Dodgers beat Cubs, 6-0, to take 2-1 lead in NLCS

TOP OF NINTH: DODGERS 6, CUBS 0

Kenley Jansen began by inducing a weak groundout from Ben Zobrist. Next, Anthony Rizzo tapped a broken-bat infield single, Javier Baez struck out, and Chris Coghlan lined out to third baseman Justin Turner.

That was it. 

The Dodgers won, 6-0. They dominated this game, and they lead the Cubs, 2-1, in this series. They can clinch a World Series visit without returning to Chicago if they win the next two nights at Dodger Stadium. The World Series begins Oct. 25 in Cleveland or Toronto.
