Indians close in on World Series win

Press AssociationPress Association 30/10/2016

The Cleveland Indians are one win away from clinching their first World Series since 1948 after taking a 3-1 lead against the Chicago Cubs.

The Indians led 2-1 going into game four and they produced the goods again, winning 7-2 at the Cubs' Wrigley Field in the best-of seven series.

That means that the Cubs have to win all three of the remaining games if they are to end their 108-year drought for the title.

The Indians have spoiled the party for the Cubs fans, who are getting their first taste of World Series action at Wrigley Field since 1945 as they made it back-to-back wins in their opponents backyard over the weekend.

Jason Kipnis was the standout performer as his three-run homer in the seventh inning extended the Indians' lead which had been earned earlier, in part, by Carlos Santana's solo homer.
