Many are the story lines for game 5 of the World Series as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 3 – 2 and got closer in the best-of-seven series to the tribe (Indians with the lead 3 – 2).

But the game ball must go to the Cub’s closer Aroldis Chapman; the Cuban lefty went out of his comfort zone to help make history at Wrigley Field as the Cubs won a World Series game for the first time since game 6 of the 1945 World Series against the Detroit Tigers (Detroit eventually wont the World Series).

Chapman threw 42 pitches and got 8 outs, allowing only 1 hit and striking out 4 to earn the save and a chance to play at least one more World Series game.

The series will continue in Cleveland on Tuesday.

The Indians got on the board first, in the top of the second inning Jose Ramirez hit a solo homerun for a 1 – 0 lead.

The Cubs scored all three of their runs in the bottom of the fourth inning ignited by a line-drive homerun by Kris Bryant; that is all the offense the Cubs would need to win the game.

The Indians scored one more run in the sixth inning, but were stopped at that point of the game.

Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester got the win; he pitched 6.0 innings allowing 4 hits and 2 earned runs.

For the Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer was credited with the loss after pitching 4.0 innings and allowing 3 runs.

Indians’ Josh Tomlin will be given the responsibility to clinch the World Series at Progressive Field for game 6, while the Cubs will give the ball to Jake Arrieta, who won game 2, in hopes to force a game 7 (if necessary game 7 will be played on Wednesday).
