The Chicago Cubs, who once trailed the Cleveland Indians by a margin of 3-1 in this world Series, won Game 6 by a score of 9-3 on Tuesday in Chicago, extending the series to a deciding seventh game.
The middle of the Cubs’ lineup, in combination with some sloppy Indians fielding, was deadly Tuesday, with Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Ben Zobrist and Addison Russell combining to go 11-for-19 with eight runs scored. Chicago lead 3-0 after the first inning and knocked out Indians starting pitcher Josh Tomlin in the third.
Jake Arrieta went 5 2/3 innings for the Cubs, allowing two runs on three hits.
Game 7 is 8 p.m. Wednesday in Cleveland.
