It was the largest audience for a Major League Baseball game since Game 7 of the 1991 World Series when the Minnesota Twins became world champions with a walk-off win against the Atlanta Braves. The celebration comes two days after the Cubs' dramatic 8-7, extra-inning Game 7 victory in Cleveland. Players raced around the field and celebrated in the locker room.
When the epic, drama-drenched Game 7 was briefly delayed by rain, Indians players returned to their clubhouse, where chairs had been removed and plastic sheets hung in anticipation for a party waiting to pop since 1948.

By the fifth inning, they were up 5-1. "It doesn't matter how", Cubs pitcher Jon Lester said. And in the eighth inning, this happened. However, the Cubs rallied following a rain delay and received critical run-scoring hits from Zobrist and Montero in the 10th.
Suddenly, the so-called curses of past Cub lore were gone, an idea that had crept back into some players during the game. "I think it's bringing the city together". But curses and superstitions are not. But the underdog Indians never gave up.
It's going to hurt. They tried until there was nothing left.
