SPANISH HARLEM – The World Series is the pinnacle of Baseball. Only those deserving may enter, it doesn’t matter if your the best team or the team that just got in. They all matter because they have a chance at something special, something grand. They work hard for this, they spend hours honing their craft. They spend countless days working toward the only goal any athlete should have and thats being the best.
Baseball has a great past and that’s why it’s so special. We share our fandom with our friends, with our loved ones because we care and we want them to care too. Its something that’s passed on, it’s someone you cared about that taught you the game, it’s your dad or your brother, it’s your mother, it’s your best friend. It was passed down to them and some how it got to you. Thats what makes baseball america’s greatest past time and what makes game 7 of the World Series the only game that matters.
What can be better, you ask? a Game 7 World Series That Went Into Extra Innings…Yes, you couldn’t write a better script.
The Cubbies scored early in the 1st inning with a home run to lead off the game by Dexter Fowler and that was just the beginning for Cory Kluber who was starting his 3rd game this series on short rest for the Tribe. He ended his night with 4 earned runs before he was lifted for Andrew Miller. The specialist was just ordinary at a time when his team needed it the most. He gave up 2 earned runs including a home run to the ancient one, David Ross.
It didn’t end there, not only did the Indians come back to tie the game in the 8th inning but they did it against non other than Adonis Chapman (The arm that god forgot about). I know we can sit here and say that Joe Maddon made a mistake using his closer the day before but he played all his cards, it just didn’t work out in his favor this time. Just when you think that a big star will help your team, its always the guy you least expect and this time it was Raja Davis. I mean you could definitely tell the guy was choking up on the bat but it worked this time (Always listen to your coaches kids, choke up on two strikes).
Two teams starving for a baseball championship yet GOD had a say… He brought rain and with that a rain delay because it doesn’t matter if you waited 68 years or 108, your gonna wait some more.
In the end the Cubs prevailed and ended their curse! Ben Zobrist with the biggest of hits in a night full of them. Yet none were bigger!
Cubs 8 Indians 7 (Trust me, it couldn’t end any better). Thank you Baseball and Congratulations Cub fans. You certainly waited long enough!
