ABC7 STAFF REPORT
The Chicago Cubs fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers, 1-0, Sunday night in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. The series is tied 1-1.

The loss at Wrigley Field happened just one night after a thrilling Cubs win, complete with an 8th-inning grand slam by Miguel Montero. The grand slam propelled the Cubs to an 8-4 win over the Dodgers in Game 1.

The series now moves to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Tuesday, Game 4 on Wednesday and Game 5 on Thursday. The teams would return to Wrigley Field for Game 6 and 7, if necessary, on Oct. 22 and 23.

CHECK OUT THE ACTION AT CUBS GAMEZONE

Cubs fans were sad and forlorn Sunday.

But let's relish for another moment on Montero's Game 1 grand slam.

Ty Frank, a young Cubs fan, got the ball after it bounced into Section 313.

"I saw the ball rolling towards me and I just dove in and got the ball," Ty said.

Immediately after, security surrounded the family and escorted them to a private room, saying that they wanted to see what Montero wanted to do. They couldn't reach him so he got to keep the ball.

Going to the game was a last-minute decision for the family. And now, they are part of history.

"Even without getting the ball, it was a magical experience," Ty's father said.

Cubs fans got in line early Sunday outside Wrigley Field just in case new tickets were released for the sold-out game.



The game was sold out, but fans lined up early Sunday with hopes that more tickets would be released.

"It's craziness, I can't believe that we're here. It's awesome. I could not be happier. You can't even explain it unless you're here. It's so much fun," said Laura Murphy.

As of 9 a.m., about 100 fans were waiting in the rain.

"It's just worth it. We went to Game 1 of the NLDS, which was amazing. They won by one run of course, so we said gotta try and when I found out they might be releasing tickets, I just live up the street so I said it was worth it to try to come over," said Julie Bulfer.

CONTROVERSIAL TWEET BY LA TIMES

Baseball smack talk went too far overnight after a post from the LA Times poked fun at Chicago's violence.

The LA Times tweeted to the Chicago Tribune, "fewer than 15 murders that day - slow news day?" with a retweet of an article.

After a short time, a Chicago police spokesman re-tweeted the comment calling it callous and disrespectful.



The Times did end up removing the tweet with an apology, calling the tweet, "insensitive."
