Cubs Extend World Series With 3-2 Win in Game 5

The Chicago Cubs had lost both home games in the World Series, and were facing a must-win game to keep their historical season alive. They did just that, and sent the series back to Cleveland.

Jon Lester pitched 6 solid innings giving up two runs, and Aroldis Chapman took it from there, pitching 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief as the Cubs won Game 5 of the World Series by the score of 3-2. Kris Bryant knocked in a key solo home run, while Ross and Russell each added an RBI.
