Chicago Cubs fans who were delirious that their team made it into the World Series now face the prospect of watching them lose it all Sunday night on home turf. The Cleveland Indians won Game 4 easily Saturday night, 7-2, to take a 3-1 lead in the series, reports the Chicago Tribune. The potentially decisive Game 5 is Sunday night at Chicago's Wrigley Field. Cleveland starting pitcher Corey Kluber proved dominant again, holding Chicago to one run over six innings. He had previously shut down the Cubs in Game 1. Teammate Jason Kipnis broke open Saturday night's game with a three-run homer in the seventh to put the Indians up 7-1. (More World Series stories.)
