SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The San Francisco Giants have been eliminated from the postseason after surrendering four runs in the ninth inning against the Chicago Cubs.

The Giants held a 5-2 lead in the ninth, but could not hold the lead in Game 4.

Javier Baez’s tiebreaking single capped a four-run rally in the ninth inning.

Cubs win the series 3-1.

Chasing their first World Series title since 1908, the Cubs will open the NL Championship Series at home Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers or Washington Nationals. That matchup is tied 2-all heading into the deciding Game 5 on Thursday.

Held to two hits over eight innings by Matt Moore, the Cubs trailed 5-2 before coming back against a beleaguered bullpen that sabotaged San Francisco one last time.

Highlights at 10 p.m. with Gary Radnich.
