so many were rooting for the cubs. that's your team, right? >> i spent six years there. two of my children were born in chicago so go, cubbies. >> fans were celebrating the cubs' big win. the team world series bound outside wrigley field, the sign that says it all, it says national league champions. >> champagne showers as players celebrated and in the clubhouse as well. i stayed up for this game and got three hours of sleep but i'm pretty sure people in chicago still aren't sleeping. >> i'm sure. this says it all. the headline from the "chicago tribune." got their goat, a reference to the cubs curse. it's been 70 years since they've been there and more than a century since they last won one and abc's alex perez is outside wrigley field with more on this historic win. and, alex, this is your hometown. >> reporter: that's right, good morning, tom, good morning, paula. you know, i grew in up city and we've been waiting much longer than i've been alive for this moment. you can still feel the energy here from the crowds that were here, and, you know,
flying the "w." it's been a long time coming. on the field and in the streets. >> the city knows how to have fun. >> reporter: chicago is celebrating a historic night after 71 years of painful disappointment, wrigley field is flying the "w" as the cubs head to the world series. cubs snatching their first national league pennant since 1945 when famous fan dorothy farrell was just 19 years old. celebrate just as hard. how are you going to celebrate tonight? >> i'll probably have a jagrmeister. >> joe maddon, high fly into right. >> reporter: last night the cubs shutting out the los angeles dodgers and walking off with a five-run lead. chicago wearing down the dodgers' star pitcher clayton kershaw.
>> reporter: while the cubs kyle hendricks struck out six batters before their closer vanquished the curse of the goat with this double play. >> left side. out. the cubs have won the pennant. >> that might have been the best game i pitched all year. >> i'm sleeping with this thing tonight. are you kidding me? we're going to the world series. >> reporter: fans in the stands hugging it out and breaking down in tears. and as much as we want to celebrate, the truth is the next challenge is right around the corner, game one of the world series tuesday night versus the cleveland indians. the indians haven't been at the series since 1997, so, paula and tom, i'll take a moment to do something i probably wanted to do a long time ago, so -- and who knows when it's going to happen again so i want to do it now. >> don't hold your breath. don't hold your breath. it's a long time coming. >> my lucky hat.
fans, they don't know how to process this because the last time they were in the world series a lot of people weren't even alive. i love this tweet from john cusack. he said, it feels -- it's very hard to describe what it feels like. cubs fans, help me out. >> so you're asking me to describe the indescribable. the last time they were there, 1945, there was no moving video of the game. the game was not televised. what we showed, "the chicago tribune" headline is all we've got. before there was a los angeles dodgers or new york mets or any number of teams in the league. that's how far back this goes, and the ticket prices for that game in 1945, about $6 or so. >> 6 bucks. >> now you can't get into wrigley next week for anything less than 2,000. >> wow. >> okay, so there's a little bit of a bias this morning with alex and paula for the cubs but this is a big year for the indians, as well. >> sure. if it wasn't for chicago we'd be talking about cleveland.
make things even more interesting, cleveland now thinks they are believeland after what happened with lebron james in the final this year, and game one of the world series is tuesday. right across the street one hour earlier ring night for the cleveland cavaliers. they're going to be donned as champions in the nba season so that's going to be a big night in cleveland. >> no doubt there's a lot of good things happening in cleveland. we're talking about the two longest franchises for droughts rather for these particular franchises. who's favored to win? >> chicago is favored to win, they've won 103 games this year. the best team in baseball but it's almost like a movie but even in the movies "back to the future" and "major league," it took the sequel for both to get their world series appearance, amazing. >> i love what you said earlier, the first time the cubs will be in the world series on a live broadcast, live tv broadcast. been a long time. >> we'll be able to watch history. >> tony reali, thank you so much. so good for baseball too. all right, let's turn to politics now. 16 days left in the presidential

[ chanting "mexico" ] >> reporter: the republican nominee is now offering something of a payment plan. >> mexico will be reimbursing the united states for the full cost of such a wall. >> reporter: trump also added a new item to his priorities list, taking revenge on the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. >> all of these liars will be sued after the election is over. >> reporter: but even as trump accuses his accusers of lying, a new woman has come forward represented by attorney gloria allred. >> if mr. trump thought that such bullying tactics would silence his accusers and prevent other women from coming forward, he will be sorely disappointed. >> reporter: adult film star jessica drake says trump kissed her and two other women without their consent ten years ago.
others is untrue. >> every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. total fabrication. >> reporter: abc news is unable to confirm any of the accusers' allegations but worth noting, the trump university lawsuit comes up in late november, so between that and the revenge lawsuits against the accusers, a lot of court dates for donald trump coming up in the first 100 days. >> certainly so. david, thank you. we want to move on to hillary clinton who was busy campaigning with her running mate tim kaine in pittsburgh and philadelphia, calling the election critically important and reaching out to trump supporters. abc's mary bruce is in our washington bureau with that part of the story. mary, good morning to you. >> good morning. well, the gang is back together this morning stumping side by side for the first time in six weeks, clinton and kaine are feeling confident and looking ahead as their momentum grows in those key battleground states. >> i think she looks damn presidential.

media, talking about voter fraud, talking about the election being rigged and, of course, that threat to sue his accusers, which stepped on the message. >> good morning to you, george. nice to see you. mary just mentioned it, the republicans are really concerned about the trump effect down ballot. democrats can take over control in the senate with, what, four or five. >> they need to pick up four seats. right now there are nine or ten that are competitive right now and with every point that hillary clinton picks up right now, it has the prospect of bringing in more democrats in the senate and the house. the house is a much tougher ballot for the democrats. they 12-point win for hillary clinton to make that even possible. >> but the national is a possibility. >> no question, it's very possible. >> and this morning you've also got the results of our latest abc news/"washington post" poll and what voters are saying about the rigged election. right? >> absolutely. you know, this is coming out at 9:00 a.m. so we can't give the exact results but i think what you'll see is what a decisive month october was and those debates were for hillary clinton. one of the things we've seen in other polls her increasing her lead every single week and these arguments that donald trump is making right now
