(CBS) The Cubs sealed their first World Series championship on a 5-3 putout from third baseman Kris Bryant to first baseman Anthony Rizzo, stranding the tying Indians runner on base in a thrilling 8-7 win in 10 innings in Game 7 on Wednesday night at Progressive Field.
Listen to the call from Cubs radio play-by-play man Pat Hughes, as he shared the historic moment on the 670 The Score airwaves.
“A little bouncer slowly toward Bryant. He will glove it and throw to Rizzo. It’s in time. And the Chicago Cubs win the World Series! The Cubs come pouring out of the dugout, jumping up and down like a bunch of delirious 10-year-olds. The Cubs have done it! The longest drought in the history of American sports is over, and the celebration begins.”
