One more win is all it'll take for the Cleveland Indians to win their first World Series title in 68 years. Corey Kluber pitched six sparkling innings on short rest and Jason Kipnis hit a three-run homer in his hometown as the Indians beat the Chicago Cubs 7-2 Saturday night to take a 3-1 lead. Game 5 goes Sunday night at Wrigley Field.


The Saskatchewan Roughriders' final game at the old Mosaic Stadium ended in defeat. Jonathon Jennings threw two touchdown passes and the B-C Lions beat Saskatchewan 24-6 to move into sole possession of second place in the West Division. The Riders are set to move to a new field, also called Mosaic Stadium, next season.


The Ottawa Redblacks will have some chance to rest up after next week's regular-season finale. Ottawa earned a bye into the East Final by locking up first place in the division with a 23-10 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Henry Burris passed for 338 yards and ran in one touchdown to give the Redblacks their second straight division title.


Marcus Johansson scored twice as the Capitals beat the Canucks 5-2 at Rogers Arena. Washington avoided losing three straight for the first time since February 2015. Meanwhile, Vancouver has lost five in a row.


The Montreal Canadiens remain the lone NHL team without a loss in regulation this season. Shea Weber scored on a third-period power play as the Habs extended their winning streak to seven games with a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Montreal. Nazem Kadri had Toronto's lone goal.


Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are golden at Skate Canada. The Canadians scored 189-point-0-6 points edging Americans Madison Chock and Evan Bates by point-8-2 points in their first major international competition in two years. Earlier, Patrick Chan overcame a fall to secure the gold in the men's event. Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford won the pairs title and Katelyn Osmond took silver in the women's.
