Daily Cubs Clip Fix (2/26/17): Cubs (Kinda) Battle the Indians at Sloan for Alleged World Series Title (??)
The Cleveland Indians came into Sloan Park today to take on the Chicago Cubs and, apparently, there was a misunderstanding of sorts. Well, it was actually more like a case of wishful thinking on behalf of the Indians social media team. Here’s the tweet in question:

You can’t blame them, can you? For all the recent history leading up to it, the game ended up in a tie that was slightly less exciting than the result the last time these teams met.
The Cubs scored their lone run on a single up the middle by Matt Szczur in the bottom of the 4th inning (video highlight below). Oh, that was the same inning the Indians scored their only run, so I suppose you could say the inning was action-packed.
Without further ado, here is your daily Cubs clip fix.
