The World Series is headed to a Game 7 and either way tonight's finale will make history

0

Tonight, a Midwestern city will be extremely happy with its baseball team. 

The Chicago Cubs came roaring back from a 3-1 World Series deficit, beating the Cleveland Indians in Game 6 by a score of 9-3. It's all tied up at three games apiece. 

Both teams' fans have been waiting for this for decades. The Cubs haven't won it all since 1908; the Indians haven't won the pennant since 1948.  

People trying to say it's just another game, they're lying to you. It's not a normal game.

Tickets for tonight's game are, unsurprisingly, insanely expensive.  USA Today reports standing-room-only tickets at Progressive Field in Cleveland are going for $2,000, with box seats selling for a whopping $20,000.

The already historic game could get even more historic: Indians pitcher Corey Kluber is gunning for his third win in this World Series. Only seven pitchers have ever started three Series games, let alone won them.

Meanwhile, the Cubs will send ace Kyle Hendricks, who has the lowest earned-run average in the majors, to the mound. 

Both cities are, understandably, really, really excited about this.

The Indians fans aren't letting the Game 6 loss faze them.

Even NBA fans are invested, poking fun at the Indians at risk of blowing their lead.

Who will win it all?
