It ain't over! Cubs rock Cleveland, force Game 7 [View all]

Source: espn.com

CLEVELAND -- After the Chicago Cubs edged the Cleveland Indians in a Game 5 nail-biter on Sunday, Kris Bryant said, "I feel like we play our best with our backs up against the wall." Boy, was he right.

The Cubs exploded out of the gate in Game 6 behind a grand slam and record-tying six RBIs from Addison Russell to beat the Indians 9-3 and force a seventh and deciding game in the World Series. Bryant started the onslaught with a monster solo homer to back 5 2/3 solid innings from Jake Arrieta and sterling performance from the Chicago bullpen.

So two days into November, we can't go any further. One way or another after Wednesday, one city's agony will be over, while another one's will grow worse by another year.
