Cubs Express Admiration for Giants

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Chigago Cubs had high praise for the San Francisco Giants following the Cubs' National League Division Series win in San Francisco Tuesday night.

"They're one of the most formidable opponents you'll ever want to play, especially this time of the year," Cubs manager Joe Madden told FOX40 when asked about the Giants. "I'm a big Bochy fan. The entire team, great organization. We're lucky to win that."

"First class organization," added Cubs outfielder Albert Almora regarding the Giants. "The intensity and the drive and the energy that we had from both teams was really phenomenal."

The Cubs will face either the Dodgers or Nationals in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series Saturday in Chicago.
