The Dodgers extended their streak of scoreless innings pitched to 18, beating the Chicago Cubs 6-0 to take a two-games-to-one lead in the National League Championship Series.

It only took two guys — Corey Seager and Yasmani Grandal — but the Dodgers finally got to Jake Arrieta, writes columnist Jeff Miller.

Grandal at last added some offense to complement his defense, hitting a two-run home run off Arrieta.

Rich Hill got through six shutout innings for the Dodgers, which is no small accomplishment in these playoffs, as columnist Mark Whicker points out.

The Cubs aren’t panicking despite their lack of offense.

Game 4 is a matchup of 37-year-old John Lackey and 20-year-old Julio Urias. Lackey was once a rookie hero for the Angels. Urias has the requisite poise to do the same for the Dodgers.
