DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Plenty of Indians fans gathered at bars and restaurants Tuesday to watch what they hoped would be the final game of the American League Championship Series.
The outcome wasn't ideal -- Toronto forced a Game 5 with a 5-1 win. But those who flocked to a watch party at the downtown Buffalo Wild Wings are confident the Indians will win Wednesday.
"I actually thought today we were going to close it out," said fan Roberto Anaya. "I was pretty optimistic about it, but now I have no doubt that we're still going to close it out. So I'm pretty happy."
Cleveland 19 News will be out with fans watching Game 5 on Wednesday, hoping for a better outcome. The Indians and Blue Jays play at 4:08 p.m. in Toronto.
"The Cavs are going to come home on the 25th, they're going to have their first game and we're going to have the first game of the World Series and it's going to be a beautiful thing," said fan Jodi Baron. "We're going to win the whole thing."
