Lovable Losers no more!
We here at Champagne in the Locker Room would like to send our congratulations to the Chicago Cubs and all of Cubs Nation, who finally broke the 108-year championship drought, defeating the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in 10 innings in quite possibly the greatest baseball game in recent memory.
So many clutch at-bats, so many great moments.
From Dexter Fowler’s leadoff blast off Indians’ Corey Kluber
David Ross making up for a wild pitch/passed ball that plated two runs and put Cleveland back into the game with a solo homer in the 6th.
Rajai Davis sending Progressive Field into a frenzy with a two-out, two run blast in the 8th inning off Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman to tie the game at 6.
Lastly, World Series MVP Ben Zobrist’s RBI double in the 10th inning coupled with Miguel Montero’s RBI single right after which became the margin of victory in this classic.
People sometimes wonder why fans are so loyal to their respective teams. Last night was one of those moments where you could finally understand why.
And now, here is the Champagne in The Locker Room.
