Chicago Cubs Break 108-Year Curse To Win World Series

Game 7. Extra innings. Over a century of World Series droughts for both teams. Needless to say, the 2016 World Series was nothing short of amazing.

The Chicago Cubs ultimately came out victorious, defeating the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in ten innings.

The Cubs took the W and the pennant home after an excruciating Game 7 that led to extra innings while simultaneously calling for a 17 minute rain delay.

As soon as Kris Bryant threw that ball to first base for the final out, everything would change for the city of Chicago Cubs. The Cubs won their first title since 1908, breaking the “Billy Goat Curse” fans were sure to keep them away from the championship.

It wasn’t the easiest win for the Cubs, who almost let the game get away from them. With two outs in the eighth inning, Aroldis Chapman threw to Indians’ Rajai Davis who connected for a two-run homer for the tie.

The Cubs couldn’t help but torment their fans one last time as they headed into the tenth and what would be the final inning. After a rousing speech from Jason Heyward during the rain delay, the Cubs came back with an RBI double from Series MVP Ben Zobrist and another hit for a run by Miguel Montero to go up 8-6.

Davis delivered an RBI single at the bottom of the tenth to bring the Indians within one but with only one out left, the Cubs capitalized.

The Cubs were World Series favorites all season long, leading the MLB with 103 wins on the season.

“It happened. It happened. Chicago, it happened,” first baseman Anthony Rizzo who caught the ball on first base for the final out. “We did it. We’re world champions. I tell ya, we’re world champions. I can’t believe it.”

“It was just an epic battle,” Zobrist said. “Just blow for blow, everybody playing their heart out. The Indians never gave up, either, and I can’t believe we’re finally standing, after 108 years, finally able to hoist the trophy.”

It was an epic battle as the Cubs came back from a 3-1 deficit to take their pride and glory home.

Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs, 2016 World Series Champs!
