The fleeting storm along Lake Erie couldn't have come at a better time for the Chicago Cubs.Shell-shocked after blowing a three-run lead with four outs to go in Game 7 of the World Series, the Cubs looked more like deer staring into headlights as they headed to extra-innings against the Cleveland Indians.With the gutsy Indians having scored one final run, cutting the deficit to 8-7 and putting the potential tying run on base, third baseman Kris Bryant swept across the infield, scooped up a soft ground ball and whipped a throw over to first baseman Anthony Rizzo to end it once and for all.The Cubs raced out to a 5-1 lead and were still up 6-3 with two outs in the eighth.In the ninth, when Maddon inexplicably called for a safety suicide bunt with two strikes, only to have Javier Baez foul it off for a strikeout with the potential go-ahead run at third base, it seemed inevitable that Chicago would find a way to blow it.Shaw, who got the final two outs in the ninth, looked like a totally different pitcher when he went back to the mound in the 10th.He surrendered three hits and two intentional walks.
