The Cubs offense was blanked 6-0 against the Dodgers in the NLCS on Tuesday night, and Joe Maddon said after the game that scoring three runs in 26 innings is hard to explain by his ballclub.

"We're not hitting the ball hard," Maddon said to reporters after the game. "They've pitched well. Obviously, I have no solid explanation. We've just got to keep working at it. We're just not hitting the ball well. We're doing the same kind of routines, the work is the same, the batting practice is the same - or lack of it is the same - and we're just not getting the results right now.

"There is really no excuse. We just have to pick it up quickly."

The Cubs have not scored in 18 straight scoreless innings which is the longest streak in Cubs postseason history.
