Cubs End the Curse

The Cubs picked up where they left off in game 6 by scoring a run in the 1st inning of what turned out to be a classic game 7. It was a Dexter Fowler home run that got things started for the Cubs, but the Indians were able to tie the game at 1 in the 3rd. Coco Crisp scored on a single by Carlos Santana.

The Cubs answered with 2 runs in the 4th and 2 more in the 5th to give themselves a comfortable lead over the Indians. But the Indians would not go away. They scored 2 in the bottom of the 5th and were able to tie the game in the 8th with 3 runs after the Cubs had scored one more in the 6th.

The ninth inning was a tense one in which no one was able to score. This pushed this classic back and forth game 7 into extra innings. A rain delay pushed this game even further into the night. But a celebration by the Cubs would happen soon enough. They scored 2 runs in the top of the 10th inning and even though the Indians scored one of their own, it was not enough. The Cubs held on to take the game and the series by a score of 8–7.

It took over a century, but the Chicago Cubs were finally World Series champions once again. The celebration will surely last a long time, but with a core group of players, it looks as if the Cubs could be competing for years to come.
