That night, Anthony Rizzo clamped his mitt around the final out after Kris Bryant fielded a herky jerky grounder from an ancient Cleveland journeyman named Michael Martinez and threw nearly as herky-jerky.

With the addition of Gold Glove-caliber Almora in at least a platoon role in center, a full season of Willson Contreras behind the plate and Baez presumably getting more time at second, many believe they might be even better in the field this year. He fanned 10 for his 22nd career double-digit strikeout game.

Stunning. Absolutely stunning. This Chicago Cubs championship ring is just as handsome as I have ever could have imagined. That's perfectly acceptable for the first couple of weeks in the season, not so much in August/September - but we'll cross that bridge when we get there if need be.

"Said Toles: "[Lackey] threw it low and I hit it on a line so the wind was no factor because it was so low. "And then walking back with the trophy. that thing's not just heavy, it's been beat up. I still can't believe all this is happening". "I still have chills thinking about it". Monday night did not disappoint Maddon. "I think they know it as well". Hopefully they're special moments. It's a feeling that's hard to describe.

The weather change and rain delay made for a frigid evening on a windy night that foreshadowed what would be a low-scoring affair.

An AC/DC song blared from Wrigley Field's speakers as Anthony Rizzo hoisted the World Series trophy above his head and led his teammates across the outfield.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy (38) delivers against the Chicago Cubs during the first inning of a baseball game on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, in Chicago. That cut in half the Cubs' 2-0 lead, and it was Lester who'd taken care of the second Cub run in the first place, hitting into a force out in the fifth on which Addison Russell scored. He robbed a home run last week in a 2-1 victory in St. Louis and saved another run Saturday in Milwaukee with a sliding catch.

The Cubs still have a chance to win this series, as they'll turn around quickly and play the Dodgers again Thursday afternoon at 1:20 p.m. CT.

Dodgers: LF Franklin Gutierrez exited with a left hamstring injury. And they'll take more games like this. Reliever Carl Edwards Jr. pitched two scoreless innings to remain unscathed in five outings. They defeated the Dodgers 3-2.

Rizzo wasn't exactly having a grand night otherwise until he checked in against Jansen in the ninth. From there, the Cubs' Anderson and the bullpen did a magnificent job to shut down the Dodgers to close out the 4-0 shutout. If we're going to be technical, the Cubs actually raised four banners, one each for their 1907 and 1908 titles, and one each for last year's NL Pennant and World Series title.

The rings were designed by Jostens, an American manufacturer of memorabilia who also designed the championship rings for Super Bowl 50, the 2015 World Series and the 2015 MLS Cup. Fireworks went off, David Ross' appearance on "Dancing with the Stars" flashed on the video board, Wayne Messmer sang, AC/DC blared on the sound system and the 41,166 in attendance went nuts.
