Cubs and Indians bid to end World Series droughts

BASEBALL: The two best teams in baseball will go head to head tomorrow morning (AEST) as the World Series begins in Cleveland.

The Indians, who have not won the championship in 68 years, take on the Chicago Cubs, who are on a 108-year title drought.

The Cubs will be the favourites in the best-of-seven series after securing 103 wins in the regular season.

Chicago scored more runs (808-777) and hit more home runs (199-185) than the Indians before the playoffs.

The Indians, however, appear more unpredictable, with 134 stolen bases to 66 for the Cubs.

Cleveland will hope to join the NBA's Cavaliers as winners of a major sporting crown, while the Cubs will want to put an end to the so-called "curse of the goat”.
