The Cleveland Indians are a game away from hoisting the World Series championship after their Game Four, 7-2 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.

Cleveland ace Corey Kluber had another strong game winning his second start in the Fall Classic pitching 6 innings, allowing just 1 run, on 5 hits, while striking out 6.

Chicago got on the board first when Anthony Rizzo drove in Dexter Fowler with an RBI single but the Indians responded by tagging John Lackey, Mike Montgomery, Justin Grimm and Travis Wood for 7 runs.

The biggest blow was Jason Kipnis' 3 run home run in the seventh inning.
