The Cleveland Indians are now just one win away from capturing their first World Series title since 1948.
On Saturday evening the Indians managed to gain a commanding 3-1 lead in the series following a 7-2 victory against the Chicago Cubs.
The Indians now have the opportunity to win Cleveland its first World Series championship in 68 years.
Earlier this year the Cleveland Cavaliers put an end to the city’s drought of no major sports titles in 52 years when they won the NBA Finals in June. Previously, the city had experienced its last major sports title when the Cleveland Browns of the NFL won the Super Bowl in 1964.
In 1997, Cleveland was just one win away from winning the World Series, but lost in a heart-breaking Game 7 to the Florida Marlins 3-2 in 11 innings.
The Cleveland Indians will look to clinch the series on Sunday night when they send starting pitcher Trevor Bauer to the mound and Chicago will counter with Jon Lester.
Game 5 takes place at 8:05 p.m. ET at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
