WASHINGTON — The day before the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians face off in the first game of the World Series, Illinois Senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk made wagers with their Ohio counterparts.

Here are the bets . . .

Kirk and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, both Republicans:

Kirk betting a case of Goose Island 312. Portman wagering a case of Great Lakes Octoberfest beer from Cleveland’s Great Lakes Brewing Company.

Durbin and Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, both Democrats:

Durbin will deliver beer from Chicago’s Goose Island Brewery to Brown’s office if the Indians win. Brown will bring beer to Durbin’s office from Cleveland’s Platform Brewing Company if the Cubs win.
