somebody is watching the U23 World Cup?

personally, I'm not gonna follow this Championship...

In these weeks I already have too much Baseball to watch with the Final Series of the main senior Pro leagues of the World...

moreover, the level of this tournament has nothing to do with the real situation of the world baseball (and imho, it's quite senseless having world tournaments for this age group, when the best players of this class are already playing in the top pro leagues)...

there's still life in Chicago...

 

beautiful and close game #5 of the World Series last night in Wrigley Field, with Indians paying the prize for a sloppy 4th inning by their starter Trevor Bauer, who gave up in that fraction all the 3 decisive runs...

for the second night in a row, the team that took the early lead couldn't maintain it through the middle part of the game and when things got hot, the bullpen of the leading team shut down the opponents...

final score, 3-2 for Chicago...

winning pitcher was Jon Lester, who had another very strong and convincing outing (6 IP and only 1 run conceded)...

 

game #6 is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday (usual start time, first pitch at about 2 a.m. CET), with Jake Arrieta (winner in game #2) starting on the mound for the Cubs and Josh Tomlin for the Indians (winner - even if not officially, because of the complicated rules about wins in Baseball - in game #3, once again in short rest)...

really sad that Blue Jays misses another world series final in the 2nd consecutive year after losing to Indians in ALCS and i think Indians have made a perfect post season and they deserve that title

And the Cubs did it! They forced a 7th game in the World Series.

and finally, we have a game #7 in the World Series 2016...

 

backed up by a solid start of Jake Arrieta, the Cubs lineup destroyed Josh Tomlin from the beginning in game #6, with the contest being virtually over after just 3 innings...

9-3 the final score, Arrieta the winning pitcher and Tomlin, obviously, the losing side...

 

the decisive game #7 is going on stage tonight, at about 1 a.m. CET...

Corey Kluber (winner in game #1 & #4) will make his third start in the Series, once again in short rest (therefore taking a higher risk), for the Cleveland Indians, meanwhile Kyle Hendricks will start (in "regular" rest) for the Cubs...

 

imho, the Cubs are heavily favourite, more than ever right now that they are coming from behind with great enthusiasm after having found their powerful bats back from a dangerous slump in the first games of the series...

the key will be as usual, more than usual, Kluber's performance...in fact, should Cleveland have the lead after 5 or 6 innings, their almost untouchable bullpen staff could shut Chicago down, without leaving them a single chance to comeback...

from the Cubs' point of view, they desperately need to take an early lead off Kluber, otherwise they know their chances would drop drastically against the lights of the great Miller & Allen combo in the late innings...

 

 

back in Asia, instead, also the Korea Series have come to an end, with the Doosan Bears Seoul completing the sweep of the NC Dinos from Changwon...

6-0 & 8-1 respectively the scores in game #3 & #4 for the team from the Nation's Capital...4-0, of course, the final standings of the Series...

5-1 lead for Cubs , they're just too close from their 1st title after 108 years

 

edit : 5-3 after 5 innings , Indians are still alive

And Chicago won in extra innings 8-7 :clap:

 

What a game, and what a comeback for the Cubs! I can imagine the fans around Wrigley Field right now... it must be a total celebration
