CHICAGO -- Bring out all the clichés, as the Cubs are in must-win/backs-against-the-wall territory. Only one team in history has come back from a 3-0 series deficit, though the man currently in charge of the Cubs was in charge of that team as well -- the Boston Red Sox in 2004.
But that was then, this is now. If the Cubs don’t start hitting, there will be no Game 5. They have pitched relatively well, though a 2-1 or 3-2 win wouldn’t hurt either. It might help to get Daniel Murphy out; he has homered in all three games.
