YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Tonight will decide who the World Series champions are, the Cleveland Indians or the Chicago Cubs. It’ll be Game 7, and both teams are hungry for a victory. The Cubs haven’t won a championship since 1908, and the Indians are trying to stop a drought that dates to 1948.
Indians fans are gearing up for a big win and hoping they won’t have a repeat of Tuesday night.
“I had high expectations coming in. I thought they would do it tonight, but I still feel good about tomorrow,” said Gary Kohl of Austintown. “They have Kluber pitching, and I think they are going to do it, I really do.”
Kluber will take the mound at 8:08 p.m. Wednesday at Progressive Field in Cleveland with a chance to become the first pitcher to win three World Series starts since Detroit’s Mickey Lolich in 1968. Kyle Hendricks will take the mound for the Cubs.
It’s sure to be a nail biter Game 7 as both teams seek to break a decades-old absence from a World Series win.
“I don’t even know what to think. You want the best to happen, but I think with Kluber going tomorrow, I think we are going to be okay,” said Matt Mowery of Salem. “There is a lot of momentum on the Cubs side right now, so they are going to have to pitch the best that they have done and go from there.”
