In my opinion this was the hit that changed the course of one of the greatest World Series we have ever seen. The Indians were leading the series 3-2 and were playing at home. Had Cleveland been able to get a lead in this game, and gotten the ball to Andrew Miller, then Chicago would have been feeling the pressure of 108 years of failure while the Indians fans would be going into a frenzy.
Instead, Kris Bryant hit a two out, 0-2 pitch from Josh Tomlin for a solo homer to give the Cubs the lead. Cleveland was one strike away from getting out of the inning but the Cubs would go on to score seven runs in the first three innings en route to a 9-3 win that set up an absolutely classic game seven. That seventh game was played on November 2nd, which was 99 days ago. Somehow it feels even longer but hang in there - we are getting closer and closer to opening day 2017. Pitchers and catchers report starting in just three more days.
