CLEVELAND, OHIO (MLB) – Game 7 of the World Series. It’s a magical scenario that Addison Russell probably fantasized about while playing Little League games a few years ago.
It’s something Cubs fans haven’t considered since 1945. Now 22, Russell helped that dream become a reality, hitting a grand slam and driving in six runs to help the Cubs post a 9-3 victory over the Indians on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.
Kris Bryant chipped in with four hits and a solo home run, Jake Arrieta struck out nine over 5 2/3 innings of two-run ball and the Cubs got another extended outing from closer Aroldis Chapman to set up the 37th winner-take-all Game 7 in World Series history.
The most recent such game came in 2014, when San Francisco edged Kansas City.
