Chicago Cubs win World Series ending their 108-year drought

Written by Liz Charre, President The season has officially concluded with the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series for the first time in 108 years. It was a fight to get there as the Cubs were down 3-1 by the end of Saturday night leaving fans with the thought of this being the end. But, there was hope on Sunday night when the Cubs won the game sending it back to Cleveland to determine the winner. Saluting their fans for the final time this season, the Cubs took their hope and desperation to Cleveland where they managed to force a game 7 Tuesday night. All eyes were going to be on Kyle Hendricks and Corey Kluber, who were named the two starting pitchers for the winner take all game Wednesday night. The game started off with Dexter Fowler leading off with a home-run to push the Cubs up first 1-0.

Dodgers Clinch the National League West for the fourth year and say goodbye to Vin Scully

Written by Liz Charre, President What an amazing end to a Dodger home stand, honoring Vin Scully on the incredible 67 years with the organization and clinching the National League West for the fourth year straight. The Dodgers ball club is the first team in the National League West to win four straight NL West titles. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who were eight games back from the Giants 90 days ago, are now at the top once again. Ever since the All-Star Break, the Dodgers have shown that they could possibly be a World Series contender. Having lost Kershaw through the majority of the season, many fans had their doubts on the Dodgers even making the postseason. But, things turned out better than expected. Now with Kershaw back in the rotation the Dodgers look to end their drought of a World Series appearance. The magic number was one as of Saturday night. As the Dodgers entered Sunday’s game with the motive to not only sweep the Rockies but win their division, a bump in the …

The Comeback Kids

Written by Liz Charre, Staff Writer Last night wrapped up an incredible MLB season with the Kansas City Royals as your 2015 World Series Champs. With emotions surrounding the big apple, it was all smiles for the Royals as they won their first World Series in 30 years. Everyone knows the Kansas City Royals as, “the comeback kids” because they have been able to produce runs in key situations. They have come from behind eight times of 11 postseason games. In the ALDS, facing elimination against the Astros, they were able to score over five runs in the 8th inning to go back to Kansas City and move on to play the Blue Jays. As the Royals defeated the Blue Jays, they were back in the World Series for their second consecutive year. Jumping to a 2-0 lead, the Royals headed toward the big apple to see if they would be able to finish off the season and sure enough they did. They dropped the first game but came back strong Saturday and Sunday to …

It’s a Mets sweep

Written by Liz Charre, Staff Writer For the first time in MLB history, the Mets have swept the Chicago Cubs from advancing to the World Series for the first time since the year 2000. The Mets, with an extraordinary season, won the NL East division, beat the Dodgers in five games, and went on to the NLCS, sweeping the Cubs in just four games. Winning the NLCS clinched the fifth NL pennant in franchise history.

Magic number ten

Written by Liz Charre, Staff Writer Ten games. That is all the Los Angeles Dodgers need in order to make another postseason run. As the season starts to close out, the Dodgers are pretty much set in on the drivers seat. They are in first place in the NL West, they are 23 games over .500 and need only ten games to seal the deal in the fight for October. If and when the Dodgers succeed for the postseason run, then it would be their third year in a row striving to win the World Series. Many Dodger fans await to see if the World Series trophy returns to LA. The white and blue angels have had the longest World Series drought, however. The last time the Dodgers won the World Series was in 1988. With 27 years since, LA fans are starting to wonder if this season will end the horrific drought of winning the title.
