Cubs Force A Sixth

October 31, 2016

The Chicago Cubs scored three, fourth inning runs and won (3-2) in game five last night, forcing a sixth game for Fox and their fans, scheduled for Cleveland on Tuesday night.

Kris Bryant hit a very important tying home run off losing pitcher Trevor Bauer, who has lost twice in this World Series.

Aroldis Chapman pitched two and two thirds scoreless innings, in relief, to notch a save and as was the case in 1948 when Cleveland last won the title, they failed to do so in game 5, with a (3-1) series lead.

Anthony Rizzo, Ben Zobrist, Addison Russell and even free swinging Javier Baez (a bunt single) had base hits in the big inning for the Cubs, while winning pitcher Jon Lester’s “personal catcher,” David Ross delivered a sacrifice fly that gave “Chi” a (3-1), in an eventual (3-2) win.

As I will cite in upcoming posts, (3-2) has not been a good score for Cleveland teams seeking titles, as this loss was by the same score the Florida Marlins denied the baseball Indians the title in an 11 inning, road Sunday night, winner take all game in 1997.
