From CSJ Staff Reports–
In a shocking turn of events, the Chicago Cubs forced a deciding World Series game seven with a resounding 9-3 victory against the home team Cleveland Indians.
Leading the charge was leftfielder Ben Zobrist who went 2-4 and scored two runs along with shortstop Addison Russell whose third inning grand slam gave the Cubs a commanding 7-0 lead. It was the 19th grand slam in World Series history and first since Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko’s four-run blast in 2005.
Aiming to win his second World Series title with his second team in two seasons, continues to use the enormous platform for a much greater purpose – to share his faith with anyone who will listen.
“We know that as a Christian athlete, people are watching, and so we want to be the best example we can be and show that we are different – that Christ has changed our lives,” Zobrist once told FCA Magazine. “But at the same time, I want people to know that grace is for everyone. We all need grace. We all need Christ.”
The final game of the 2016 World Series will feature a pitching matchup between Cubs righthander Kyle Hendricks, and Indians righthander Corey Kluber. Both pitchers are considered to be strong candidates for the Cy Young Award in their respective leagues.
