The Cubs wasted no time in making their intentions to play a Game 7 clear: Tuesday night in Game 6, they scored three runs in the first and another four in the third, putting the game almost entirely out of reach. Paul ONeill Jersey .While the Cubs racked up their runs, Jake Arrieta was cruising. The former Cy Young winner went five and two-thirds innings Tuesday night. He gave up just two earned runs, allowed three hits and struck out nine. Not long after he came out, manager Joe Maddon went back to Aroldis Chapman for another extended outing, before Travis Wood eventually closed it out.The night belonged to Addison Russell, the 22-year-old shortstop who made up for a 4-for-17 start to the World Series -- and set a World Series record for RBIs -- with a two-run hit in the first and a grand slam in the third -- the Cubs first ever World Series grand slam.Being part of the Cubs, youre forced to deliver whenever the games kind of on the line, Russell said in the postgame press conference. So having that practice throughout the whole season, and then, finally, here comes the big moment in the postseason, in the World Series.The Indians had two outs and two strikes on Kris Bryant in the top of the first when he hit one out of the park. My favorite pitch to hit is the hanging curveball, he said later. Usually if you just put your good swing on it, theres a good chance its going pretty far. I felt like that was something Ive been waiting for, is a pitch in that area, and I got it.

Andrew Hancock for ESPNTeammates greet Russell at home after his grand slam off pitcher Dan Otero in the third inning. The key to that at-bat was to not swing at the first two pitches, Maddon said later. If you get over-eager right there, youre going to put that sinker in play, its a ground ball to third base, inning over, none of this happens.

After the game, Arrieta said the Cubs defense was a key cause for the win. Andrew Hancock for ESPNWith two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, Maddon hands the ball to closer Chapman. Five runs -- listen, Ive been at this ballpark when we were up by seven or nine and they came back at the last, Maddon said. Cleveland has this tendency and this tradition, so I dont want that to happen.

Though he appeared to turn his ankle on the play, he later said it was nothing to worry about.

McElroy for ESPNBaez turns a double play in the eighth inning as Ramirez slides into second base. Andrew Hancock for ESPNThe Cubs middle infield duo, Baez and Russell, walk off the field together in the bottom of the eighth inning. Just watching Russell, hes unbelievable, man, Bryant said after the game. Hes 22 years old, Gold Glove [finalist], hitting homers in the World Series. Hes a pretty special player. Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesRizzo looks up with no doubt that the ball was hit for a two-run homer in the top of the ninth inning, increasing the Cubs lead to 9-2. Pretty much all around, up and down the order, everybody contributed, and thats why we played so well, Arrieta said after the game. Andrew Hancock for ESPNAn Indians fan tries in vain to out-cheer his neighboring Cubs fans. Both fanbases will no doubt be out in huge numbers for Game 7. [Wednesday] is a day that you kind of have to put it all on the table, Russell said. The winner is going to be the people that come up in the big situations. The guys that make the routine plays and the guys that make the spectacular plays to avoid the big inning. I think thats going to be the difference-maker.
