(FOX SPORTS) – For the first time since 1945, the Chicago Cubs are going to the World Series.
The Cubs won the National League pennant Saturday evening by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-0, in Game 6 of the NLDS.
They will face the Cleveland Indians beginning Tuesday in Cleveland for a chance to claim the organization’s first championship since 1908 and officially break the Curse of the Goat.
After falling behind in the series 2-1, whispers of doubt started to swirl around the Cubs, but those were quickly stomped out. Chicago crushed the Dodgers in Game 4, 10-2, and then hammered them again in Game 5, 8-4, to bring the series back to Wrigley Field needing only one more victory.
