Cubs force World Series Game 7
The Chicago Cubs forced a game seven after taking games five and six at home. Now, the Cubs are back in Cleveland and hoping to finally break the curse of the Goat and deliver a World Series to their fans for the first time since 1908.
“There’s no time to hang your head or feel sorry for yourself,” Mike Napoli said. “We’re about to play in a Game 7 in the World Series.”
The Indians had just watched the Cubs bring the series to a tie after getting clobbered 9-3 on the road. Really, it was kinda over by the end of the third.But now, it all comes down to one last game on the lot, one last warm fall night and there is no reason to hold anything back.
“At this point, we’re all going to find a way to get every last drop out,” said southpaw Andrew Miller.
Starting on the mound in the most anticipated game in modern baseball history will be Corey Kluber ( 18-9, 3.14 ERA) for your Indians and Kyle Hendrix (16-8, 2.13 ERA) for the Chicago Cubs.
“One thing’s for certain,” said Indians first baseman Mike Napoli. “There’s going to be a champion tomorrow.”

Rookie Merritt delivers
The Cleveland Indians took matters into their own hands and delivered the knockout punch to the punch drunk Toronto Blue Jays and they did it with Rookie Ryan Merritt was the one delivering the blows.
The 24-year old lefty shut down the once high flying Blue Jays in game five before taking a bow in the fifth inning. The rookie fanned 10 batters, allowed two hits in 4 1/3rd innings and looked like a veteran out there.
“I know they were counting on me,” Merritt said. “Before the game, they came and told me they had my back, everybody had my back, good or bad. So that takes some pressure off, and I just went out there and pitched and trusted my team.”
The Tribe now await the winner of the NLCS between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs. They could use the time recuperate for a few days, especially the pitching staff which have been hampered with injuries, especially Trevor Bauer who is still nursing an injured pinkie finger.
