It has been a whirlwind of emotions for Cubs fans over the past three days. All seemed lost after the Cubs’ Game 4 loss at Wrigley Field that put them in a 3-1 hole in the World Series. Now just a few days later, the Cubs are one win away from making history.
The Cubs struck early with a Kris Bryant home run in the top of the first inning. It was Bryant’s second game in a row with a home run. Bryant had a four-hit night.
Game 6’s star at the plate was Addison Russell who not only became to the first Cub ever to hit a grand slam in the World Series, but also tied a single-game Word Series record with six runs batted in.
For the second time in this series, Jake Arrieta pitched brilliantly for the Cubs. He only gave up two runs, but he struck out nine batters in five-plus innings of work.
Anthony Rizzo put the icing on the cake in the top of the 9th inning when he hit a two-run home run to seal a 9-3 win over the Indians.
Now it all comes to an end on Wednesday night in a winner take all Game 7 in Cleveland. Corey Kluber and Kyle Hendricks are the projected starters.
Remember, you can catch Game 7 of the World Series on Fox 39 on Wednesday. First pitch is at 7:08 pm CT.
