Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Enrique Hernandez made the Chicago Cubs' National League Championship Series (NLCS) comeback attempt nearly impossible.

Hernandez blasted a third-inning grand slam in game five at Wrigley Field to give the Dodgers a 7-0 lead.

The 26-year-old, who homered in the second inning off Jose Quintana, took reliever Hector Rondon deep after the Cubs starter was pulled.

It was the fourth grand slam in Dodgers postseason history, joining James Loney (2008), Dusty Baker and Ron Cey (both 1977).

With a 3-1 series lead and Clayton Kershaw on the mound, the Dodgers have all but punched their tickets to the World Series.
