Cubs/Indians And The Road/Home Pattern

November 4, 2016

The Chicago Cubs’ 7 game triumph road/home win/loss configuration is the third in World Series history.

The World Series of 1968, 1979 and now 2016 are the only series where the winners in the 7 games followed this pattern: home, road, road, road, home, road and road.

What is more relevant perhaps is that 5 road team wins in seven games has to be at least tied for the most in a World Series. I am not sure, however.

In addition to the ’68 Detroit Tigers and 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates who simulated the great Dr. Martin Luther King, and “overcame,” the ’93 and ’77 Series followed the same pattern through 5 games.

However, with home run dramatics, the ’77 Yankees with 3 by Reggie Jackson and a forgotten key one by Chris Chambliss and the ’93 Blue Jays on Joe Carter’s W.S. ending home run broke the pattern and won it all at home in game 6.
