Carlos Santana helped the Cleveland Indians defeat the Chicago Cubs in game-4 of the World Series. The Cubs jumped out to an early lead in the 1st inning. It looked like the momentum was on Chicago's side, but then in the second inning Santana came up to the plate, and he smashed a home run ball out over the right-field wall to tie the game at 1.
Cleveland had Kluber on the mound, after just 3-days rest. He pitched another great game and he gave Francona 6 innings. Kluber struck out 6, gave up 5-hits and walked only one batter. This guy has to be considered one of the best pitchers in all of baseball.
Kluber also got a hit on an infield single in the 2nd inning. The Indians would score another run off a Chicago throwing error. Everything seemed to be going Cleveland's way following Santana's home-run.
The Indians would score run number-3, off a Francisco Lindor single to right-center, that drove in Jason Kipnis. The Indians were on top after 3 innings 3-1. The Tribe was hitting the ball well in game-4.
In the sixth inning the Tribe would score run number 4, off a Lonnie Chisenhall sac-fly to center that drove in Lindor. The Indians were on top 4-1 after 6 innings.
The Tribe would put the nail in the Cubs coffin in the 7th inning, when none other than Jason Kipnis hit a 3-run home run to right filed, which scored Crisp and Davis. Kipnis had a heck of a night in game-4. He went 3 for 5 and showed he could still knock the cover off the ball when he gets a hold of it.
The Indians sit just win away from wining the 2016 World Series Title. Could this be the year the Tribe brings the title back to Cleveland?
Game-5 is tonight at 8:00P.M.est. If the Indians win, than they will be the 2016 World Series Champions, if they don't win it tonight, the team will come back to Cleveland to play game 6 on Tuesday night.
But it's going to be hard to stop this Indians team. They just might clinch it tonight....... Go Tribe......
