CHICAGO, IL - The Cleveland Indians lead the World Series 3-1 after a huge Saturday night win in Chicago in Game 4.
Jason Kipnis greeted Travis Wood with a three-run homer in the seventh to give the Indians a 7-1 lead and silence the crowd at Wrigley Field.
Listen to what Kipnis had to say in the post-game press conference, above, about his three-run homer.
Coco Crisp, batting for Corey Kluber, led off with a double. Justin Grimm threw a wild pitch and hit Rajai Davis with a 1-0 fastball.
Wood came in and Kipnis lined a 3-1 cutter to right to break open the game.

Game 5 is Sunday, with first pitch scheduled for 8:08 p.m. ET. Starting pitchers will be Jon Lester for Chicago and Trevor Bauer for Cleveland.
If the Chicago Cubs don't do something fast, the long-suffering misery in Chicago will continue.
Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis each hit home runs, and Corey Kluber stymied the Cubs for the second time in this series, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 7-2 win in Game 4 of the World Series at Wrigley Field on Saturday night.
The win gives the Indians a 3-1 series lead. They are a game away from winning their first championship since 1948.
This marks the 47th time that the World Series stands at 3-1. The previous 46 times, the team leading 3-1 has won the series 40 times (87.0%), and has won Game 5 on 26 occasions (56.5%).
The Cubs haven't won the World Series in 108 years, and until this year, they hadn't even reached the Fall Classic since 1945. The 71-year wait between championship appearances is the longest stretch for any team in the four major American sports (MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL).
On the flip side, the city of Cleveland -- unbelievably -- might hold its second championship parade since June.
Should the Indians win it all, it would cap an incredible few months for what previously had been a title-starved city. Until this year, when the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA championship, it had been 52 years since Cleveland won a title in any major sport.
