The 36-year-old outfielder came off the bench for a pinch-hit single that scored Michael Martinez from third base with the winning run in the seventh inning as Cleveland beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 Friday, spoiling the first World Series game at Wrigley Field since 1945 for many of those in the stands

The Indians, seeking their first World Series title since 1948, took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven final over the Cubs, who are trying to win their first crown since 1908 to end America's record longest sports title drought.
