Cleveland Indian fans confident The Tribe will advance to the World Series

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -

A rough night for local baseball fans who had hoped Tuesday would be the night their beloved Cleveland Indians would head back to the World Series.

The Toronto Blue Jays avoided a four-game sweep in the American League Championship Series by beating the Tribe, 5-to-1.

The Indians loss didn't stop fans from having a good time. About 300 miles from the game in Toronto, Tribe fans packed just about every downtown Cleveland bar as fans rallied together for an Indians win.

"We're going to take this, we're going all the way," said Karen Casement of North Ridgeville.
 
Early on in game four the Tribe started to trail behind. But, with a 3-0 lead in the series, fans at BW3 weren't the least bit worried.

"Still early, still early," said Richard Rusell of Cleveland. 

Not to mention, Cleveland sports fans know all about comebacks. Just months ago, hope for the Cavs looked dim when they trailed 3-1 in the NBA Finals.  And we all know how that turned out.

"Every game is still nerve racking given the fact Cleveland has had such a hard time winning championships going back," said Alok Harwani of Cleveland Heights. "But, this is a team of destiny. I think everyone believes in the team, especially after the Cavs won. Perfect timing for the Indians."

And while Cleveland fans are still holding onto that hope for another championship, the dream of a four game sweep began to dwindle at the bottom of the 7th when the Blue Jays batted in two runs.

Fans at Harry Buffalo's took comfort knowing that, if needed, there are three more games to play.

"We don't want to use all three chances, we want to get it tonight but tomorrow or the game after that. We're not going seven," said Matt Eck of Cleveland.

It wasn't long after that, another run by the Blue Jays sealed the deal on game four with a final score of 5-1.

Indians and Blue Jays will now go head-to-head in game five of the series in Toronto, of course Tribe fans hope to wrap the series up there. But, if they have to they will come back for game six in Cleveland.
