CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, CLEVELAND, Ohio-The Chicago Cubs out did the Cleveland Indians Wednesday night, winning Game 7, 8-7, and thus the World Series, a 4-3 games final for the coveted baseball championship title.

It was a win by the Cubs at Progressive Field in Cleveland that culminated in extra innings, and a heartbreaking defeat that brought some Cleveland fans to tears.


"That's one of the best game's people will ever see," said Cubs third baseman and outfielder Chris Bryant after his team's championship win.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona, best known for leading the Red Sox to two World Series, told reporters coming into Game 7 that  he had a restless night, a premonition, in fact, as the baseball team that he resurrected fell to the Cubs.

Francona  said after the game that his players gave all they had and that it "was a lot of good baseball."

His team, he said, simply "ran out of time."


And while Cleveland fans may be disappointed, President Barack Obama is not. The country's first Black president, a former U.S. senator and prior Illinois senator who got his start as a community  organizer on Chicago's south side, told Jimmy Kimmel that "I am rooting for my home team.

Among celebrities there were actor Charlie Sheen and Cleveland Cavaliers megastar LeBron James, who this year led Cleveland to win the NBA championship title, its first in franchise history.

Some 80 percent of the tickets sold for Game 7 were bought by people out of Ohio and ranged in prices from $250 to  $23,000.

Cleveland took an early lead in  the championship series, winning  three games to one.

Chicago came back and won two games, both of them away games. That made the series tied, and set the stage for the series' 7th game and final game on Cleveland's turf.

And a Game 7 it was, with fans for both teams on the edges of their seats all night long


At the top of the fourth inning the Cubs were leading Cleveland 3-1.

But Cleveland, the American League Championship team, hit back and scored two runs at the bottom of the 5th, making it 5-2, a scenario with Chicago, the Major League Championship team, up 6-3 at the top of the 6th.

At the bottom of the 8th Cleveland stunned and brought in two runs to tie the game 6-6, the result of a home run from Rajai Davis, his first since August 30, and the first ever 8th inning game tiers in a World Series  the home crowd going wild as the Tribe gives the Cubs something to recon with.

In overtime, the Cubs upped it two runs at the top of the 10th, garnering an 8-6 outcome and putting pressure on the Indians to perform at the bottom of the 10th.

Cleveland got one run at the bottom of the 10th, but it was not enough, the Cubs ending Game 7, 8-7.

One of the American League's eight charter franchises, the Cleveland baseball club was founded in 1901.

The Indians had won their only World Series appearance in 1920 and returned in 1948 to win it again. It would not materialize in 2016.

The Cubs won back-to-back World Series championships in 1907 and 1908, and became the first Major League team to play in three consecutive World Series, They were also the first to win it twice.

Inclusive of this year, the Cubs have appeared in a total of eleven World Series.
