Like Luis wrote earlier today, the postseason starts where Clayton Kershaw has not had as much success have pretty much all had one thing in common: dingers.
So if the Cubs are to beat him tonight, they’re going to want to muscle up against Kershaw. And after a whole bunch of hard contact so far in the early going, including a Willson Contreras leadoff single in the fourth inning, Albert Almora got him really good.

And Almora was enjoying his work immediately, and deservedly:
