CHICAGO, Ill. – The Chicago Cubs are returning to the World Series for the first time in 71 years after defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-0 Saturday in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series.

The Cubs last appeared in the World Series in 1945, losing to the Detroit Tigers, and haven’t won one in 108 years. The World Series opens Tuesday in Cleveland, where the Cubs will face off against the Indians.
