The Cleveland Indians just advanced to their first World Series in nearly 20 years


The Cleveland Indians blanked the Toronto Blue Jays 3-0 on Wednesday evening to head to their first World Series in nearly 20 years.

Manager Terry Francona's team will try to boost what's already been a magical year in Cleveland after LeBron James and the Cavaliers earned the city's first sports championship since 1964. The Indians' title drought dates to 1948.

Cleveland, which has never hosted a World Series opener, will play Game 1 at Progressive Field on Tuesday night against either the Chicago Cubs or Los Angeles Dodgers.
