wasn't just one arm tied behind their back, it was both arms and both legs. the one thing i learned today especially on my radio show is that cleveland has a calm about it today that i don't know that we would have had in years past. i would say it's primarily because of the cavaliers winning. but it's game seven, you're a little kid, you're getting the pitch, and you hit that big home run that everybody wants you to. that is what g about. it makes people nervous except for today's starting pitcher, corey kluber. >> it's been a blast to think that we've all really enjoyed ourselves, and i think that we can take a lot from the way we've approached it and not treating it more than just each game is another game and trying to go out and win, not trying to look too far ahead or things like that. i think there's value to taking that approach throughout the course of the season, too. >> reporter: kluber is
5:04 pm
clearly they've been listening to mark johnson and the power of 5 because they moved the game time up to 8:00 from 8:08 because they think there might be showers coming in. mark has clearly influenced major league baseball and the world series. that's how powerful he is, guys. >> oh yes. when mark speaks, they listen. >> everybody listens. one constant hear in cleveland, win or lose, that the fans stay behind their team. >> yes they do. they are consistent, even with the trib one pair of diehard fans this is unbelievable, they wanted to get tickets for tonight's game so they stood in line for hours and hours and hours, so news five's tara molina is live from gateway plaza. how long did they wait in line? >> reporter: you guys, i say hours and hours is right. they waited all night and all day. these guys you are about to

>> the indians being here, you being the manager, beg in this position, game seven, to win the whole thing? >> i've talked to my dad, trying to see how many people are coming with him, making sure i don't mess up the tickets, things like that. but we never talk about the games. he's never been my coach. and it's something that i've always really respected. back when i was in high school, he would g chair, and he would go sit out in right field, because he didn't want to make the coach feel like he was looking over his shoulder. >> exactly, terry. that's a great way to look at it. that's what dads do. >> all righty. chief meteorologist mike johnson speaking words of wisdom to our indians. they pushed back their game time because when mark speaks,
5:12 pm
johnson? you got lottery numbers? >> i said there could be rain coming in, late innings. but right now i'm feeling good. that eight minutes is going to make a huge difference they pushed the game up. i'm thinking the rain holds off to closer to midnight or even after. so fingers are crossed that we get the w. i think i'm overdressed based on the temperatures. let's show you what's going on outside right now. we've got some thin cirrus clouds overahead. tremendous late afternoon here in cleveland. 74 deee coming on shore. this is absolutely phenomenal folks. no need for their coats. no need for short or long sleeves. folks wearing their shorts, and long sleeves are out. 77 akron, hopkins 76, 71 ashtabula. a few clicks away from record highs today but that's about done. rain coming in later on tonight after the game. so 70s to start the ball game, 60s to end it. we will see mainly cloudy skies moving in but i'm

right now the search is on for the guy in this video who stole an oak wood police cruiser. all this happened yesterday in cleveland. cell phone video shows the officer struggling with the driver of a stolen car. that driver slammed the officer to the ground, got inside the squad car, then drove off. he crashed the cruiser down the road, took off running. a chase in akron led to a major drug bust that police
5:17 pm
cocaine hit. >> more than 24 pounds of cocaine were uncovered. that's an estimated 20,000 doses with a street value over $1 million. police spotted a suspicious man yesterday near kenmore boulevard and 16th street. he led officers on a chase before crashing the car and jumping 30 feet off a bridge onto railroad tracks. officers were surprised by the large stash found inside the car. >> i don't think this selling of 11kilos to individuals. i feel like this would be an individual who is supplying mid-level dealers around akron. >> the suspect was released from a hospital and was booked on drug charges. all right, everybody wants to know if the weather is going to hold up. >> it's a winning weather evening in cleveland, mark johnson. >> yeah, that's the charlie sheen line, isn't it.
5:18 pm
period in his life, but yeah. a winning forecast. tribe summerrer, this is it, all right. and we're tracking in some rain. so this is would we have to watch carefully. the rain is coming, the cool air is coming. we should have a nice, dry evening, at least most of it for a tribe win. inside progressive field right now, look at that green grass. looking like mid-june. i wonder what else happened in mid to late june? i think the cavs won a championship. yeah, similar weather to today. all right, let's show you what's going on outside, graphic-wise on our power of 5. we want to check on the rain shower activity coming in. moving up toward erie, pennsylvania, a couple of showers, but cleveland, akron, lore rain, everybody is dry. notice where the rain is. just north of us over lake erie into southern ontario, lower michigan, then it slides
5:19 pm
now, the front is coming in tomorrow morning. ahead of it, we do have the rain shower activity coming in. look, there's one severe thunderstorm warning for peoria. yeah, you might hear a little thunder but we're not expecting any severe weather. the timing of the rain is so important. we expect the rain showers to arrive, the majority, after midnight. could there be a sneaky shower that comes in maybe 10:30, 11:00? sure, but it would be brief, and it 72 at 8:00 p.m. clouds are going to begin to thicken up. cloudy at 10:00. there's that little isolated shower mention by 11:00 p.m. late innings. 67 degrees. but we've got a better than average chance that that rain holds off until after midnight tonight. so there's the front. the warm air in place, behind that front much cooler temperatures. so by this time tomorrow i'm thinking we're falling into the lower 50s, middle 50s. so we're going to swing these
5:20 pm
mid-70s now, back into the lower and middle 50s tomorrow, more than 20-degree temperature swing. here you go 9:00 p.m. tonight. track it in hour by hour. where's the rain? well, it's staying north, staying west. 9:00 p.m. there we go. 1:45 a.m., now we've got rain. tomorrow morning's rush looks to be a wet one. i'm feeling good about game seven. this is what you dream about, folks. if you are an athlete, you want to win the big one ingame seven. so why why not us? i'm feeling good. this is not the same old cleveland. this is not the attitude before last june when, oh, we're going to lose. no way. all right, we can do this. 60 degrees, mostly cloudy. well, it's not going to be dry. we're going to have rain showers coming in. we're going to be right back with more of newschannel5 -- news 5 at 5:00 right after

5:34 pm
to be here outside and simply around the place, what is poised 0 to be the most anticipated and watched game in history will be played in just two-and-a-half hours. but we're seeing the impact of chicago being five-hour drive away. a lot of cubs fans making the trek east here this evening. we've got the clydesdales on hand, the party atmosphere, but there really is an air of tension here. that's because this is not where cleveland fans wanted to it's a lot of pressure. but you know what they say about pressure. pressure makes diamonds. diamonds would look really gin a championship ring. >> john, thanks. if everybody is coming downtown, pack your bags, leave now, get down here. >> yes, good advice, because you know it is going to be crazy. but in case you forgot, let's flash back. hear is what it looked like when the cavs won game 70.

5:45 pm
10 innings in a shutout, and he was able to get the job done pitching three world series games in 1991, and i caught up with him just moments ago, asked him what it's like pitching in a game seven. >> if i could show you my biggest smile ever, that's what it's like. it should be like. that it's the pinnacle of what we play the game for. the fans here in cleveland, the fans in chicagoffe been waiting what seems like centuries for this day, and one of these teams can just erase all the terrible drought. it is going to be an exciting time but there is no bigger thrill in baseball. quite honestly, to have a game seven, it's special. we don't always have game sevens. i think it's the pinnacle of the whole baseball life in ?? itself to play in and be a part of the game seven. >> you made three world series starts in 1991. you're the world series mvp.
5:46 pm
what would you tell corey kluber who is going to be making his start? >> i don't think i have to tell him anything. he's a pro's pro. he knows what task is at hand tonight. i guess i would tell him just absorb it. the best way you can. still having the ability to focus on what you have to do. >> reporter: he said whoever scores first, that's who he likes winning this game. when the indians score first in the postseason they've got an 8-1 rerd guys, game seven, here we go. let's get it done. >> that's what we plan on doing. >> hakem, thank you. jack morris is in the house. hakem, that was great. no doubt, history will be made at progressive field. >> but a bit of our baseball past is already woven into game 70. mike brookbank live at gateway plaza. games like this are pretty rare for the indians. >> reporter: this is only the
5:47 pm
seen a series go seven games. the first played at league park which is now home to the baseball heritage museum. >> fur not nervous for game seven, you are a better man than i am. >> reporter: morris is the man to go to with a question about baseball in cleveland. >> cleveland typically does things the hard way. >> reporter: like give up a 3- 1 lead in the world series, a series that looked very familiar the last time th 1948. >> very notable signing by bill vech in the early days of the color barrier. >> reporter: he is talking about satchel page. >> some people thought it was a stunt. he was 42 years old. >> reporter: his age did not impact his performance on the mound. >> he went 6-1 down the mound.
5:48 pm
yes, his story line playing out just like andrew miller's. >> similar is that he was a mid season acquisition, and that without andrew miller, it is doubtful that the indians would be in the world series. >> reporter: those connections preserved here at the baseball heritage museum at league park. >> i think it's important to cleveland and clevelanders to come here and see where there has been success in the past and times and the bad times and celebrate the championships. >> reporter: and after 68 years, you know we're ready to celebrate. >> win or lose, it will fall into cleveland baseball history, and baseball history as a whole. >> reporter: of course another historic component to this world series, the teams are indians and cubs, among only a few that date all the way back to 190 1. live in gateway
5:49 pm

5:50 pm
that she baked today. i'm thinking that's a good luck charm right there. as long as you don't take a bite yet, mary, wait until after, zoom on in. we're at 74 degrees, still very comfortable. a nice breeze out of the south right now. 76 hopkins. 77 act i don't know. mid-70s mansfield. the cool spot 71, of the major reporting areas, and that in ashtabula. dry for now. we've got some clouds. we're dog see clouds thickening up throughout the ball game but the rain showers for the most part should stay north for the entire ball game. watch out to our west. we've got showers, thunderstorms chicago, moving towards indianapolis. they should take their time getting here. i'm think well after midnight for most of us before the rains arrive. i will include a very small threat for a sneaky brief rain shower by the 8th or 9th
5:51 pm
69 at 9:30. 68 at 10:30. cloudy skies on the way. your hour by house, one more time, let's show you. watch those showers stay to our north. stay to our north. there we go. 12:45, then we begin to see the rain moving into cleveland. so that bodes well for a dry ball game tonight. game seven. i tell you what, my nerves can't take much more. let's go, tribe. wrap it up. get the win. >> okay, mark. it is do tribe, looking for that last win of the world series. >> it's a memorable moment for anyone to have the chance to go check it out. but even more so fur meeting a family member for the first time ever. yeah, we caught one two sisters after seeing each other. but first, when news 5 at 5:00 returns, our leon bibb has one more perspective he would like to give you ahead of tonight's historic meeting between the indians and the
5:52 pm
5:53 pm
5:54 pm
5:55 pm
