Watch: Chapman gets double play to clinch NL pennant


For the first time in 76 years, the Chicago Cubs are World Series bound.

After Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks tossed 7 1/3 shutout innings in Game 6 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, closer Aroldis Chapman came in to finish off the 5-0 win.

With one out in the ninth inning, Chapman walked Carlos Ruiz to bring a slight hush upon Wrigley Field. That moment of anxiety was short-lived, however. Chapman got Yasiel Puig to ground into a series-ending double play, and put the Cubs in the World Series for the first time since 1945.

Mariners prospect Lewis suffers knee injury in catcher collision


One of the Seattle Mariners' top picks appears to have suffered a scary injury.

Seattle's 10th overall pick in the 2016 MLB Draft Kyle Lewis left his Class-A game with a knee injury on Tuesday, according to the Everett AquaSox.

Lewis scored on a play at the plate, but stayed down for several minutes. He was able to walk off the field with the assistance of his coaches, but appeared to be in a lot of pain.

After the game he was seen leaving the yard on crutches, and he's expected to see a doctor on Wednesday.

Lewis was drafted 10th overall out of Mercer University, the first player in school history to be drafted in any sport. Shortly after, he went on to win the Golden Spikes Award, given to the NCAA's top Division I player.

In 30 games this season at Everett, he's batting .299/.385/.530 with three homers, five triples, and eight doubles.
