Strat game 7. Cleveland at Chicago Cubs

First baseman Anthony Rizzo slammed a homerun at Wrigley Field as the Chicago
(NL) Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 4 to 1.

Cleveland was unable to climb back into it after Chicago (NL) went ahead for
good in the 2nd inning scoring 2 runners on 2 hits. The early run support
proved sufficient for Jon Lester(5-2) and Chicago (NL). That was all the run
support Lester required. Both teams totaled 9 hits on the night.

Aroldis Chapman preserved the game for Lester, recording his his 11th save.
The losing pitcher was Danny Salazar(1-4). He pitched 6 and 1/3 innings
allowing 5 hits and 2 walks.

G5. Cubs at Indians


With the crowd on their collective feet, screaming at the top of their lungs,
Cleveland Indians rallied to top Chicago (NL) Cubs by the score of 6 to
5.

Cleveland scored the decisive runs in a big bottom of the 9th inning scoring 2
runs utilizing 3 base hits. Brandon Guyer led off and started the rally when
he doubled. Abraham Almonte struck out, unable to help the rally. Marlon
Byrd then doubled scoring a single run. Jason Kipnis stepped in and he
slapped a one-base hit resulting in a mighty exciting win for Cleveland and
the 35,052 home town fans in attendance. A wild and woolly affair, this game
saw the lead change 5 times.

The winning pitcher was Cody Allen(1-0) who allowed no runs in 1 and 2/3
innings. Aroldis Chapman(0-1) was the losing pitcher in relief. Terry
Francona was in great spirits in his post-game interview. Yet, when asked
about his feelings after the thrilling comeback victory, he volunteered,
‘I’ll tell you this much – I know how my counterpart, Joe Maddon, feels right
now – and it’s not very good. It’s terrible when you come up on the short
end of one of these!’
