The long-suffering Chicago Cubs advanced to the World Series for the first time in 71 years with a 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday.

The Cubs, known as the "The Lovable Losers" given years of heartbreak and misery since their last World Series triumph in 1908, clinched the best-of-seven National League Championship Series 4-2 at home and set off wild celebrations across the city.

Chicago will face the Cleveland Indians, who have not celebrated a Major League Baseball title since 1948, in the best-of-seven World Series starting on Tuesday in Ohio.
