CHICAGO — On Sunday, the chicage cubs had a dancing night, with ‘Rocky’ blarring on loudspeakers, and the movie playing on the flat-screen TVs.
“It was a party in here,’’ David Ross said. “A good time.’’
It was all happening before the fifth game in the World Series, when for the first time all season, the Chicago cubs had to play for the lives.
And there was survival for them for another day.
The Cubs, calling on closer Aroldis Chapman to preserve the longest save of his career, saved the Cubs’ season with a 3-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians at Wrigley Field, sending the World Series back to Cleveland for Game 6, trailing 3 games to 2.
“Hello, Cleveland!’’ Cubs president Theo Epstein yelled, as he entered the Cubs’ raucous clubhouse.
The Cubs, went to the field to show support to their crowd, reveling the first World Series victory at Wrigley since 1945, in their final home game of this season.
