Phew, Cubs get themselves out of a tight spot with bases loaded and one out with a great double-play; can't help but feel they can't give up too many more chances to the Indians though.

Was Bill Murray pissed out of his skull? That was weird.

 

Tight game tonight, thought they might get a run right at the end, but Cleveland's pitching is immense.

Yeah, not his finest moment. Was like when a relative gets too tipsy at Christmas and you have to usher them upstairs for a lie-down.

 

Cleveland looked good. If I was a betting man I'd put a couple of quid on them making it 3-1 in game 4; think the Cubbies looked a little overwhelmed by the enormity of the occasion. Would be very happy to be wrong though.

This 108 year drought is looking unlikely to fall. Feels like all the momentum is with Cleveland now.

 

Edit- oh man. Two HRs from Cleveland go wide, but all the ones the Cubs attempted fell short in the wind because they hit them straight.

Even more so now. Cubs only hope for game 5, and extending the series, is the pressure on the Indians ending their own long drought leads to a few openings.

 

Can't see it though, Cleveland look ice-cool.

Feeling pretty pessimistic about the Cubs' chances now, don't think there's any way this Cleveland side loses three in a row based on the current form and output from both sides.

 

Hopefully the Series will at least go back to Cleveland, and it's not another 70-odd year wait for the Cubs' next appearance on this stage.

Lester needs the game of his life here, and three strikeouts in about 12 pitches is exactly how that needed to start.

 

Edit- Cubs are having no luck with the wind.

Goddammit, that last pitch was so low John Deere could have sold it, and he still swung. Bauer is fooling them all.

 

Cubs defence is doing what it needs to do here. Need some bloody hits and steady singles.

Cubs are going to need an answer to Kubler, he's clinical.

 

Guess this stands again!

 

Head says Indians will gather themselves with Kubler leading them out and the bullpen seeing them home. But the fact there is even a chance of the Cubs breaking their own drought after how game 4 played out, is pretty amazing.

 

Hope one more W is flying later tonight...

Can't believe this series, Back to the future might be just one year out after all.  Always great to have a game 7.

 

Playoff Game 7s are some of the best things in sport. Can't wait!

This is going to be too nervy for Chapman, he's going to end up with someone on and stealing. All the pressure the cubs too, the worst that can happen for Cleveland is another innings.
