CHICAGO -- There could be a championship celebration at Wrigley Field on Sunday, just not the kind the Chicago Cubs and generations of their long-suffering fans dreamed of seeing. Cheap NBA Jerseys .Tops in the majors with 103 wins, the Cubs simply cant afford to lose another game. Otherwise, a championship drought dating to 1908 will continue.The Cubs once again got shut down by Corey Kluber on Saturday night and didnt get the dominant start they needed from John Lackey.Throw in two errors by third baseman Kris Bryant and it added up to a 7-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians in Game 4 of the World Series.They trail 3-1, and if they dont get more from their lineup or a big effort by ace Jon Lester on Sunday, it will once again be wait `til next year for the Cubs.We got to win tomorrow, Anthony Rizzo said. Thats the bottom line. Weve got to do whatever we can to win the ballgame tomorrow and thats it. Theres no looking past that.Only six teams have come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series, most recently the 1985 Kansas City Royals. The Cubs sure did not envision falling into such a hole. Nor did their fans, who packed Wrigley Field and the neighboring bars.The surrounding streets were a sea of blue hours before the ballpark opened just as they were prior to Game 3. But the excitement and enthusiasm surrounding the Cubs first trip to the World Series since 1945 has given way to disappointment after two tough losses.By the time Javier Baez grounded to pitcher Dan Otero to end the game, there was almost an eerie quiet inside Wrigley after the 102-year-old ballpark had been rocking.Its just a matter of us gaining offensive confidence, said manager Joe Maddon, whose team is hitting .204 in the Series. Thats what we need right now. More than anything, when youre not hitting like that, the whole vibes very difficult to push in that real positive direction. So youll continually try to be positive in the dugout during the course of the game. But, you know, its difficult. Its difficult especially this time of the year. We just need that offensive epiphany somehow to get us pushing in the right direction.The Cubs have not won a World Series game at Wrigley since they beat Detroit in Game 6 in 1945. They lost the next one at home to the Tigers and have been haunted by curses and disappointment in the decades since then.But for fans who have suffered through it all, this team has provided hope for them like no other. Even if the Cubs dont find a way to dig themselves out of this hole, their lineup is loaded with young sluggers such as Bryant and Rizzo and budding stars like Addison Russell and NLCS co-MVP Javier Baez.They boast one of the top rotations in baseball, with Lester, Kyle Hendricks and Jake Arrieta leading the way.There is reason to believe that a team that got to the NLCS a year ago and advanced to the World Series this year will be in the title picture for years to come. Thats some consolation for their fans even if they want it all now.Dexter Fowler got the Cubs off to a good start in this game, hitting a leadoff double and scoring in the first against Kluber. He added a solo homer off Andrew Miller in the eighth.Rizzo and the struggling Jason Heyward had two hits apiece. But a team that finished third in the majors in runs, once again failed to produce.As long as theres an out, as long as theres a pitch, we still have a good shot, Russell said. Weve won three games in a row before.They at least scored in this game after getting shut out in four of the previous eight. But they didnt do much against Kluber.The 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner went six innings, allowing one run and five hits pitching on three days rest. It was about as good as his previous start, when he went six scoreless innings and struck out nine in Game 1.Lackey simply couldnt match that. The veteran right-hander allowed three runs -- two earned -- and four hits over five innings.He gave up a leadoff homer to Carlos Santana in the second, and another run came home in the inning thanks to a pair of throwing errors by Bryant.We knew coming into this series, stuff is going to hit the fan, Russell said. We score a run and they score a run. We have to score back. Thats just the name of the game. We didnt do that. Our team is better than just one run, two runs, but the team played their heart out tonight. Cheap Pistons Jerseys . The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling "puts an end to my dreams of being a top player," the 27-year-old Troicki said in a statement. "I worked my entire life for it, and it has been taken away from me in one afternoon by a doctor I didnt know," said Troicki, whose ranking peaked at No. Cheap Pistons Jerseys Authentic . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. . - NASCAR announced a 33-race schedule for the 2014 Nationwide Series with virtually no changes from this years slate. India will play two T20I matches against West Indies in Florida later this month, BCCI president Anurag Thakur announced on Tuesday, after the boards working committee meeting in Mumbai. The matches will be played on August 27 and 28 at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Lauderhill.Officials from both boards had meetings in Florida last week to discuss the staging of the matches at the conclusion of Indias ongoing four-Test series in the Caribbean. The ability to obtain US visas was the primary logistical hurdle before the boards but this was cleared after the BCCI submitted documents for its intended T20 squad to the US embassy in Jamaica, where the second Test is currently being played.In a press release issued by the board, Thakur stated that the series would be developed into an annual event in the USA.As part of our continuous efforts to reach out to new markets and audiences, I am very happy to announce that Team India will play two T20Is against the current world champions West Indies in the United States, Thakur said. This will be a great opportunity for the cricket fans in America to watch the two champion sides in action. This will be developed into an annnual cricketing event in the United States. Cheap Swingman Pistons Jerseys. The Central Broward Regional Park is the only ICC-certified ODI standard stadium facility in the USA and recently hosted six Caribbean Premier League matches between July 28 and 31. The ground has previously hosted four T20Is - in 2010, New Zealand played two matches against Sri Lanka, and returned in 2012 for two games against West Indies.WICB president Dave Cameron said the WICB would also be interested in playing T20s at the Florida venue every year, even if India were not available to do so, to help develop cricket in the Americas. We would like to make it an annual affair from the WICBs standpoint, he said. Is it going to be with India every year? Not necessarily. But from a strategic standpoint, we would like to be playing cricket in the USA on an annual basis.I think weve set that as part of our strategic goal in helping to develop the USA and the Americas. Our view is that proceeds from these games can go towards development of cricket in the USA and Canada and the Americas in general.
