The Chicago Cubs are World Series champions at long last, winning their first Fall Classic in 108 years, defeating the Cleveland Indians in 10 innings 8-7 in Game 7 at Progressive Field in Cleveland.
What added to the anticipation was a rain delay before the 10th inning could start.
That last inning was just as dramatic as the rest of the game. The Cubs made two runs thanks to the Indians fatal decision to walk two batters. The top of the inning ended with the bases were loaded. The pitcher collapses allowing one run and two men on base. Another pitcher comes in and the batter hits a grounder to the short stop, and the throw to first base gives the Cubs the last out and a wonderful and well deserved World Series win.
