And it doesnt help that most Cleveland Indians fans havent seen their team hoist a trophy, either.The Cubs are hoping to win their first title since 1908, while the Indians have been waiting since 1948.As of Sunday morning, the average ticket sold on StubHub for Games 3, 4 and 5 at Wrigley Field in Chicago was more than $3,000.One fan bought four seats in a bullpen box along the first-base line for Game 5 for $17,950 each. A pair of seats was also purchased on StubHub for $16,000 a ticket for Games 3 and 4 -- one by the Cubs dugout, the other one by the Indians dugout.The highest total transaction on World Series seats on StubHub was for a Game 7 at Clevelands Progressive Field. A fan bought four tickets in the first row behind the Cubs dugout for $24,500 each, including fees.?If a Game 7 isnt necessary, the sale will be negated, and the buyer will receive a refund for the cost of the seats and fees.What remains to be seen is whether the hottest ticket market in baseball history will sustain. When the Cubs clinched Saturday night, the cheapest ticket to get into Game 1 in Cleveland on StubHub was $1,090. By Sunday morning, one could be found for $850.

SEATTLE -- The last-place Oakland Athletics fell just short of handing the Seattle Mariners a crushing loss to their playoff hopes.Mike Zunino delivered the go-ahead home run in the seventh inning and Seattle held on for a 3-2 victory over Oakland on Thursday night, keeping the Mariners on the edge of the AL wild-card chase.Oakland lost for the ninth time in 10 games.Seattle is two games behind Baltimore and Toronto with three games to play. The Orioles defeated the Blue Jays 4-0 to pull even atop the wild-card race. Detroit, which was rained out against Cleveland, is a half-game ahead of the Mariners, who have three left against Oakland.We can only control what we do here, Mariners manager Scott Servais said. We need help. We know that. I think everybody thought the way Toronto was playing, theyd probably win two out of three at home. Didnt happen. The way we look at it, were still alive. Weve got to win tomorrows game and again, pray for a little help.Zunino, hitting .139 over his last 25 games, opened the seventh with his 12th home run, sending a 2-2 pitch from Liam Hendriks (0-4) deep over the wall in left to put Seattle up 2-1.Seattle added a run in the eighth on a two-out single by Leonys Martin, a walk to Zunino and Ketel Martes RBI single.Steve Cishek (4-6) came on to stifle an Oakland threat in the seventh with an inning-ending double play and added a perfect eighth. Rookie Edwin Diaz notched his 18th save, despite allowing a run and three hits in the ninth.Oakland starter Kendall Graveman, tagged for eight runs on 12 hits in five innings in his last start against Seattle, gave up just one run on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings.We made an adjustment from the last two times and we started to pitch in tonight, and said if they are going to beat us they are going to have to beat us when we throw fastballs in, Graveman said. That lineup over there, they stack a lot of lefties in on you, and if you start pitching them away they start to see it out there and put some good swings on it. For the most paart, I thought we commanded it pretty well tonight. Trevor Williams Jersey. he Mariners took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on three consecutive singles before running themselves out of the inning. Kyle Seager reached on an infield single when Graveman couldnt find the handle on his two-out dribbler along the first-base line. Adam Lind followed with a single to center.

Danny Valencia singled to open, but was forced at second on Brett Eibners fielders choice groundout to short. Yonder Alonso then singled Eibner to third. Cishek relieved and enticed pinch-hitter Max Muncy into a ending double play grounder.It came down to situational out bats, Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. We had runners at third with less than two outs, then we hit into a double play and two strikeouts . Our situational at-bats hurt us tonight.VALENCIA CLOSING STRONGDanny Valencia, who double and singled, is hitting .326 over his last 12 games with two doubles, a homer, three RBI and six walks.
