Chicago manager Joe Maddon says it’s OK for Cubs fans to be nervous heading into Sunday night’s must-win game against the Indians.

“Please be nervous, absolutely,” Maddon said. “You should be nervous. We have to win tonight. It’s up to us to get you beyond that moment. I do believe our Cubs fans, the one’s that I have spoken to, are really diggin’ on everything that’s happened. Please go ahead and be nervous.”

Maddon gave no thought to holding a team meeting with his club down 3-1 in the Series.

“I don’t believe in the speech thing working, I don’t,” Maddon said. “I want us to play with emotion but without emotion. In other words, be involved in the moment.”

Kris Bryant led off a three-run fourth with his first World Series homer, and the Cubs grabbed a 3-1 lead over the Indians.

Bryant lined a 1-1 fastball from Trevor Bauer just beyond the left-field wall for his second postseason homer — and first since Game 3 of the NL Division Series against San Francisco.

Fans were still dancing and shaking the upper deck when Anthony Rizzo lined the next pitch off the ivy in right for a double. He moved up on a single by Ben Zobrist and came around on Addison Russell’s single to third.

The retiring David Ross, playing his final home game, added a bases-loaded sacrifice fly to make it 3-1.
