(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- Yu Darvish stood center stage Tuesday night and realized he couldn't allow his already hostile surroundings to become any more energized.

Giving up a first-inning home run that forced the Los Angeles Dodgers to play from behind for the third straight game didn't help. However, Darvish quickly was able to silence Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs, putting the Dodgers on the verge of their first World Series appearance since 1998.

Darvish allowed one run over 6 1/3 innings, and Chris Taylor homered and drove in two runs as the Dodgers moved to within a victory of the National League pennant with a 6-1 victory over the defending World Series champion Cubs.
