Remlinger ’88 gets 1st career postseason save as Cubs win 5-4 in 11.

The Chicago Cubs inched closer to their first World Series berth since 1945 by defeating the Florida Marlins 5-4 in 11 innings Friday night. The Cubs took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 NLCS.

The Cubs blew leads of 2-0 and 4-3, but scored the game winning run when Penn grad Doug Glanville tripled home Kenny Lofton on a hit and run that worked to perfection.

Dartmouth alumnus Mike Remlinger ’88 came on to close out the bottom of the 11th and secure the win for the Cubbies. It was Remlinger’s first career save in the postseason.
