CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Chicago Cubs arrived back home in Chicago Monday morning after losing two games on the road in Los Angeles. No one is panicking...yet.

The Cubs get one day off to rest. Game 3 is Tuesday night at Wrigley.

Before the sunrise Monday, the team's buses pulled up to Wrigley Field.

Tuesday's starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks and teammates Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant and manager Joe Maddon somberly made their way to their cars to get a much-needed day of rest

"It's nice seeing the guys, I mean, it's kind of early, you know they are not really amped up I am sure they are going to go home and get some rest," said Cubs fan Mike Sharrah.

Dedicated Cubs fan Sharrah was the only fan waiting to greet the players as they got off the buses

"Just standing out here you know they know the supports there," he said.

Cubs support isn't in short supply, with fans saying there is still a chance in the best-of-seven series.

"I do! I think they do, I mean, they always surprise us, so we'll cross our fingers," said Cubs fan Robin Schemmel.

"We just got to bounce back, buckle down and get ourselves a win," said Cubs fan Michael Moorman.

Fans are hoping for the Cubs to sweep all three games at Wrigley.

"We went through this last year during the World Series, always keeping hope. Got to keep the faith and you'll be good," Moorman said.

If you are thinking of getting tickets for a playoff game at Wrigley, prices are not cheap. On StubHub, standing room tickets are around $120 and if you want a seat, it will cost you about $160.
