Chicago Cubs Force A Game 7 In World Series With Huge Early Lead Thanks To Addison Russell

The Chicago Cubs are trying to be the first team to comeback and win a World Series Championship after being down 3-1 since the Kansas City Royals did it back in 1985.

In order to reach that feat, they’d have to win against a very good Indians team 3 times in a row. They are more than halfway there after yesterday’s lopsided win.

In the first inning, Chicago went off to a fast start with a home run by Kris Bryant followed by a base-clearing 2 RBI double by Addison Russell giving the Cubs a 3-0 lead.

Then in the 3rd, Russell tripled his RBI total by hitting a grand slam, giving the Cubs a whopping 7-0 lead.

They would never relinquish that lead, as they beat the Indians handedly, 9-3.

Game 7 of the World Series is on tonight at 8:00 pm EST. It is predicted to be the most watched World Series game ever as the Cubs have not won the title since 1908 and the Indians since 1948.
