Jason Kipnis received a hero's welcome after hitting a three-run blast in Game 4

After a tense one-run game on Friday night, Game 4 was shaping up to be another nail-biter at Wrigley Field. The Cubs scored a first-inning run, but by the seventh Cleveland was clinging to a 4-1 lead. Then, the first two batters of the inning reached base and, suddenly, one swing from Jason Kipnis blew the game open.

Now up, 7-1, Cleveland had its first comfortable lead since winning Game 1, 6-0. How did they celebrate? By giving Kipnis a hero's welcome in the dugout, of course.

The human sedan chair is Kipnis' signature post-homer dugout celebration, but after a three-run jack in a World Series game, it was even more joyful than usual.
Cleveland went on to win, 7-2, and is now just one win away from its first World Series title since 1948. Tune in to see if Kipnis and the Indians can close out the series with a victory in Game 5 on Sunday, 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
