    US: Chicago Cubs win baseball World Series after 108 years

    Nov.3, Chicago: The Chicago Cubs have won Major League Baseball's World Series, ending the longest title drought in the game.

    Manager Joe Maddon's team beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in 10 innings to scoop the top prize in world baseball.

    The Cubs blew a three-run lead but, with the game tied, came back after a rain delay to clinch the title.

    The last time they won was in 1908, 108 years ago, when they defeated the Detroit Tigers 4-1. A curse was placed on the team in 1945.

    Bar owner Billy Sianis swore the team would not win the sport's biggest prize after he and his goat were thrown out of a game.
