Wednesday night’s final World Series game garnered more than 40 million viewers for Fox Sports, the network said, marking the most-watched baseball game in 25 years.

The Chicago Cubs defeated the Cleveland Indians 8-7, claiming the Series 4-3 with the decisive 10-inning game in Cleveland. The win ended a 108-year-drought for the Cubs, leaving Cleveland fans mourning the near-end of their own 68-year run without a championship.
