(CHICAGO) The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series championship in more than 100 years when they beat the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the World Series on November 3, 2016. The game began on Wednesday, November 2, though the weather took a turn for the worse when rain moved in during the ninth inning. The tied game was halted for around 20 minutes before teams returned to the field which resulted in a Chicago Cubs ‘W’.
