Addison Russell tied the World Series record for RBIs in a game (six) with a grand slam, and Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo also homered as the Cubs busted out Tuesday night for a 9-3 victory at Progressive Field to force a Game 7 on Wednesday.
Cleveland will be the site of what is sure to be an all-time classic finale, with the Cubs one win away from their first World Series title since 1908 and the Indians seeking their first title since 1948.
We're on the scene following the Cubs' Game 6 win:
11:40 p.m. ET: Cubs force the issue
Cubs manager Joe Maddon called on closer Aroldis Chapman to end a jam with two outs in the seventh inning, but the flamethrower was not needed to close out the win. After Chapman walked Brandon Guyer to open the bottom of the ninth, Pedro Strop came on for two outs and Travis Wood induced a popout from Jason Kipnis to seal Game 6.
9:55 p.m. ET: Famous fans in the house
Mega-star Bill Murray, an enthusiastic Cubs fan, was among the celebrities in attendance at Progressive Field. Others included "Today" host Al Roker (celebrating the Indians' run in the fourth inning), LeBron James of the NBA champion Cavaliers, musician Eddie Vedder, comedian Drew Carey and former NHL star Chris Chelios.
9:05 p.m. ET: Addi-slam
Russell broke the game open with a grand slam off Dan Otero, giving the Cubs a 7-0 lead in the third inning. The slam, projected at 434 feet by Statcast™, made it the farthest home run hit by a Cub this postseason, traveling one foot farther than Bryant's first-inning solo shot.
