One game for the championship.
Thanks to the Dodgers‘ win in Game 6, we got one more day of the Cubs as “reigning World Series champions.” That reign will end tonight with the winner of this game taking over that title. A World Series drought will end tonight, no matter who wins. But if you add up the years of the Dodgers drought (29) and the Astros drought (55), you still come up 24 years short of what the Cubs went through.
The work of the Cubs to win a championship in 2018 will begin in about three and a half months. In the meantime, enjoy the last meaningful major-league baseball game of 2016.
Here are today’s particulars.
