Cubs Stay Alive With Game 5 Win

The 2016 World Series will head back to Cleveland after the Chicago Cubs won a close Game 5 over the Indians, by a score of 3-2. Cubs starter Jon Lester threw six solid innings, keeping the Indians to two runs, before closer Aroldis Chapman went long for 2⅔ innings, striking out four and giving up only one hit, keeping Cleveland from tying the game and potentially winning the series. Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant’s fourth-inning home run began a three-run outburst that inning, setting Chicago’s lead they kept the rest of the game. The Fall Classic will head back to Progressive Field for Game 6 on Tuesday evening, with Chicago’s Jake Arrieta facing Josh Tomlin of the Indians.
