Wild Game 5 win sends Cubs to NLCS

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- Cubs catcher Willson Contreras, who endured a rough series behind the plate, caught the third strike and pumped his fist.

Chicago closer Wade Davis, asked to get the last seven outs, leaned over in front of the rubber and appeared to give thanks.

The Cubs, in a game that lasted nearly five hours, will have a chance to defend their National League championship.
