Relive Game 7 of the 2016 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians

We didn’t get have Opening Day on Thursday, but we do still have baseball.

FS1 is throwing it back on Thursday night with two World Series Game 7s.

First up, we relive Game 7 of the 2016 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians.

We kicked it off with one of A-Rod and Frank Thomas’ favorite opening day memories.

And folks, little did we know, we had a rivalry on our hands.

Batter up! Chicago wasted no time and Dexter Fowler homered early to give the Cubs the lead.

Fun fact: with the homer, Fowler became the first player ever to hit a lead-off home run in a World Series Game 7.

Break time!

Let’s discuss a Cubs fan’s favorite topic: Does Chicago have a chance to win it this season?

We’ll find out soon (hopefully).

Meanwhile, Chicago was looking strong early in the night. To open the 5th inning, Cubs shortstop Javier Báez hit a bomb to center on the first pitch he saw, upping the Cubs’ lead to 4–1.

Do we predict a pitching change for the Indians?

Kidding. We all know Cleveland pitcher Corey Kluber was knocked out of the game.

Fear not Indians fans, there was hope! Cleveland center fielder Rajai Davis blasted a huge 2-run homer in the 8th inning to tie things up, 6-6.

And we’re coming at you with another little known fact: Davis’s home run was the latest-occurring game-tying home run in World Series Game 7 history.

We had a quick rain delay, but don’t worry, we’re back.

Once the action got back underway, Chicago’s second baseman Ben Zobrist – who had been 0-for-4 in the game – turned it on when he was needed most.

Zobrist AKA Zorilla, delivered a clutch RBI double, sending his teammate Albert Almora home and giving the Cubs a 7-6 lead in the 10th inning.

And they did it!

The Cubs defeated the Indians, 8-7, in extra innings, ending their 108-year World Series championship drought.
