CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs once again relied on their potent offense as they advanced to the National League Championship Series for the first time in 12 years with a 6-4 victory over the top-seeded St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday.

Fresh from a six-homer, 8-6 win in Game Three one day earlier, the Cubs thrilled an energized home crowd at Wrigley Field with their batters blasting three more home runs as they clinched the best-of-five Division Series 3-1.

Seeking to end a 107-year wait for a World Series title, Chicago delighted their long-suffering fans as Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber all clubbed homers to set up the club's first postseason series win at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs will next face either the New York Mets or the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Championship Series which is scheduled to start on Saturday.
