It’s the biggest game at Wrigley Field since 2003 as the Cubs take on the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS, one win away from capturing their first NL pennant in 71 years. A daunting figure aims to snuff them out though, as Clayton Kershaw will get the ball for the Dodgers. This should be a fantastic game with history on the line.

So can the Cubs get the job done, or will the best pitcher in baseball live up to his name again, as he has throughout the 2016 playoffs, and force a Game 7 tomorrow? Find out at 8:08pm on Fox Sports 1.

Enjoy the baseball.
