2016 World Series Champions: Chicago Cubs

If you are going to endure years — no, generations — of futility and heartbreak, when you do finally win a World Series championship, it may as well be a memorable one. The Chicago Cubs did just that, shattering their 108-year championship drought in epic fashion: with an 8-7, 10-inning victory over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7. The Indians were down 6-3 in the bottom of the eighth, but they got to closer Aroldis Chapman, tying things up with an RBI double from Brandon Guyer and a two-run home run from Rajai Davis.

Chapman lost the lead, Cleveland had the momentum, but then play was halted by rain before the start of the 10th inning. The delay lasted 17 minutes.

When play resumed, Chicago got to work.

 

Ben Zobrist hit an RBI double and Miguel Montero singled home a run to make it 8-6. Davis delivered an RBI single with two outs in the bottom half, but Mike Montgomery closed it out at 12:47 a.m., and the celebration was on.

Blue-clad Cubs fans who traveled from Wrigley Field filled nearly the entire lower deck behind the Chicago dugout at Progressive Field, singing “Go! Cubs! Go!”

Manager Joe Maddon’s team halted the longest title drought in baseball, becoming the first club to overcome a 3-1 Series deficit since the 1985 Kansas City Royals.

USA Wins at Hazeltine, Regains Ryder Cup Trophy from Europe

After three straight losses, the United States defeated Europe to win the 2016 Ryder Cup with a final score of 17-11 on Sunday.

In an event with only pride on the line, Team USA brought the trophy home in an emotional victory after an eight-year drought.

The United States held a 9.5-6.5 lead after two days in the competition. The Americans got off to a 4-0 start in the Friday morning foursomes, and the Saturday afternoon four-ball pairings earned a 3-1 advantage for the home team.

Still, the competition always comes down to singles play, and this year was no different.

The most entertaining match was the first one, with Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy creating plenty of fireworks in the early going. Both did their part on the course as Reed used five birdies and an eagle to earn a 1-up victory for the United States.

Another notable early match pitted two of the best in the sport against each other as Jordan Spieth took on Henrik Stenson. While both had their moments, the Swedish star earned a 3-and-2 victory.
