The Chicago Cubs won Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night by the tightest of margins. Manager Joe Maddon’s unconventional move of using Aroldis Chapman for an eight-out save paid off and elimination was staved.

With Jake Arrieta and Kyle Hendricks lined up for Games 6 and 7, there’s reason to believe the club will overcome a 3-1 deficit. Crazier things have happened.
