Cubs crack six homers in Game 3 NLDS victory

Posted:
CHICAGO (AP) -

Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler each hit two-run drives and the Chicago Cubs connected for a postseason franchise-record six homers in an 8-6 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 3 of the NL Division Series on Monday.

Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro and Dexter Fowler also homered, powering Jake Arrieta to another win despite a rare off night for the bearded ace. The Cubs' previous record for most homers in a playoff game was five in the opener of the 1984 NL Championship Series against San Diego.

A third straight win for Chicago on Tuesday afternoon, and the once woebegone franchise will advance to the NLCS for the first time in 12 years.
