CHICAGO | The Cubs are one game away from being eliminated from the World Series after a 7-2 defeat against the Cleveland Indians tonight in Chicago.

The loss also brings the Cubs all-time World Series record to an abysmal 2-13 which is the worst percentage of all time.

The Cubs struck first in the game after an Anthony Rizzo double in the bottom of the first inning brought home Dexter Fowler to give the Cubs a 1-0 lead, but that lead was short lived once Carlos Santana of the Indians hit a solo home run in the top of the second inning.

The Indians went on to score six more runs to extend the lead to 7-1 during which the Cubs’ bats were kept quiet. The Cubs were unable to deliver another run until Dexter Fowler’s solo home run in the bottom of the eighth.

The Cubs haven’t won a home World Series game since 1945. If the bats aren’t able to wake up tomorrow, then the Cubs will add another year to their unbreakable curse count, making it 109 years.

The Cubs are against tough odds to come back in this series as the Indians are one game away from their first World Series win since 1948.
