In the second, the Cubs peppered him for three runs on four hits, including a leadoff double by Jason Heyward, a two-run single by pitcher Kyle Hendricks and an RBI single by Kris Bryant that glanced off diving right fielder Hunter Pence's glove.
Samardzija had a 2.45 ERA in his last 10 regular-season starts, showing the best closing kick on the starting staff. Experience also played a factor, Bochy said. The Cubs will counter with reigning Cy Young victor Jake Arrieta, who will try to finish off the sweep.
To imagine that, however, you also have to imagine the Cubs losing three games in a row to a team that's inferior in every aspect.
Travis Wood relieved Hendricks with two outs in the fourth inning, and he struck out Conor Gillaspie to end the top half of the frame. On July 31, he moved Wood from the mound to left field and immediately came up big catch at the Ivy in the win against the Seattle Mariners. The righty allowed six hits and walked one, throwing 33 of his 47 pitches for strikes.
After a tough, 1-0 loss to the Cubs in Game 1 of this series, Game 2 didn't exactly go as the Giants would've hoped.
It was an abrupt downer for the light-hitting Giants, who had thrived of late with starters combining to go 3-1 with a 0.55 ERA in their previous four games, including Baumgarner's complete-game shutout in a Wild Card victory against the Mets. He lasted two innings - the shortest outing of his career - before being pulled for a pinch hitter.
Before Hendricks was forced out, the Giants chipped away at the lead thanks to Gregor Blanco's RBI double, which scored Joe Panik, and Brandon Belt's sacrifice fly, which scored Blanco to make it 4-2.
So the Giants have that going for them.

Pressure on Trump in second debate
Trump spent Sunday morning highlighting Twitter messages from supporters who slammed Republican leaders for abandoning him. The video renewed Republican worries that Trump's problems could hurt party efforts to retain majority control of the U.S.
Meanwhile, the Cubs jumped on former Cub Jeff Samardzija from the outset, with Dexter Fowler doubling to lead off the bottom of the first and scoring on Ben Zobrist's single.
There is one bright spot for San Francisco even with this hole to climb out of: Madison Bumgarner. "It actually feels pretty good now". The right-hander, who spent his first 6/2 seasons with the Cubs, was pinch-hit for in the third after allowing four runs and six hits. They got great pitching in Game 1 from Lester, and the offense came to life early in Game 2 before the bullpen took over. Manfred said the rest of the series will proceed as scheduled with Game 3 Monday afternoon at Dodger Stadium.
"Once he left the game, it was all hands on deck for us", said rookie Carl Edwards Jr., who threw a scoreless inning in his postseason debut.
"If they want to let me get an at-bat I'll take one anywhere I can", Wood said with a smile. "Even the home run, I mean, it wasn't his "A" hack, but it was in an area that he can do that with, so he didn't try to force something".
Texas scored twice in the eighth, one run coming when Carlos Gomez lined a single that hit Jays pitcher Francisco Liriano in the back of the neck.
"It's tough to lose two here, but it's a case that we have been down this road before", Bochy said, per Muskat and Haft.
"Obviously, everything's a little different when you pitched in one place for so long and then have to go do it on the other side", he said.
There isn't any way to sugarcoat where things stand for the Giants.
