We’re live blogging Game 7 of the 2016 World Series – Chicago Cubs at Cleveland Indians
I hear there’s a big game about to get underway in Cleveland? Get ready Cubs fans, G7 of the World Series is coming up!
You Go We Go….ball GONE. Lead HR for Fowler 1-0 Cubs.
Hendricks to the mound with a one run lead. Cubs 1-0 after a half.
Full inning in the books 1-0 Cubs.
Cubs go in order in the 2nd.
Hendricks dodged a bullet and the with the pick off. Bullet back up the middle could have dinged him.
A lot of mild to hard hit balls.
26 pitches through 2 for Hendricks. Great stretch by Rizzo. That man must do yoga.
Great turn by Baez too
Arrieta and Lester headed to the bullpen.
Leadoff double for Coco Crisp in the third
Bunt gets Crisp to third. Top of the Indians order up
This is already one of the most intense games I’ve ever watched.
Hendricks is calm and cool on the mound, limits the damage to just a run. Escapes another Baez E. 1-1 after 3.
Lester is warming now for the Cubs
Great ab from Bryant
Great AB Kris Bryant
Wouldn’t mind a Rizzo 3rd base line bunt
Aggressive send by Gary Jones, but Bryant slides under the tag at home. 2-1 Cubs.
Contreras doubles off the wall. Zobrist scores. Cubs up 3-1. T4.
Asked Contreras about Kluber last night ” I will say nothing about Kluber. He is a great pitcher ”
Part of the Cubs defensive plan is to not allow Baez to touch baseball
Lester sits down. Montgomery now warming.
1-2-3 in the 4th. Hendricks perhaps settling in.
Everyone now sitting in the bullpen including Lester Strode
Are you sitting in the bullpen too @thecarm?
Apology accepted Javy!!!
In game audio, a mic on David Ross. Rizzo tells him he’s an emotional wreck and in a glass case of emotion. Hilarious. (as long as the score stays the same). 4-1 Cubs
Rizzo drives in Bryant. First they knock around Kluber. Now, Andrew Miller.
So Lester in for Hendricks with two out in the 5th. Cubs up 5-1.
This game keeps getting stranger. Ross homers 6-3 Cubs in 6th.
9 outs away
Paying a lot of attention to Dexter Fowler who is not running with KB at the plate
Ok fine. Shocked Fowler ran with Rizzo on deck too
Lester, again! Always seems to find the big pitch.
Whatever security is in the Cleveland area should head to the concourse. Indians and Cubs fans are no longer friends and are drunk
That’s not good
Forgot to mention I didnt like taking Lester out. On a ground ball in the infield on a play that could have been made. When is rolling dotting corners.
Away away away
Get loose Jake
Game is going to come down to Montgomery. Whenever you want to get somebody up Joe.
Light rain is back
This will go down as one of the most memorable baseball games ever. No matter the outcome.
Tarp is coming off the field
Runners at first and second. One out. T10.
Zobrist comes through! A double down the 3B line. Cubs up 7-6. T10.
Now Montero with a hit! Cubs up 8-6. T10.
Cubs three outs away from a World Series championship
1 out away
Davis back at the plate as the tying run
Davis comes through! An RBI single. Winning run is at the plate.
Mike Montgomery on to pitch
