Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
After a convincing 6-0 victory in Game 1, the Indians will look to take a commanding 2-0 lead against the Cubs tonight in Game 2 of the World Series. It will be Trevor Bauer of the Indians facing off against Jake Arrieta of the Cubs. It’s important to note that due to impending rain, the game will start one hour earlier than it’s scheduled time. First pitch is now set for 7:08 P.M. on Fox.
Last night might’ve been the greatest day in Cleveland sports. First, it was ring night for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they raised their NBA Championship banner. The Cavaliers went on to dismantle the Knicks, 117-88. Right across the arena, the Indians stole a page from the Cavs playbook and put on a show as Cleveland defeated the Chicago Cubs 6-0 in Game 1 of the World Series.
The story of the night was the dominance of Cleveland’s pitching. The three-headed monster of Corey Kluber, Andrew Miller, and Cody Allen held the best offense in baseball to zero runs and seven hits. Last night reiterated the fact that if the Cubs do not get an early lead, good luck against Cleveland’s bullpen because they have been fantastic this whole postseason. That being said, the offense was no slouch. Shortstop Eric Lindor showed why he will be a force in the future, racking up three hits. Surprisingly, the bulk of the offense came from the nine hitter, catcher Roberto Perez, who had not one, but two home runs and four RBI on the night. The best stat that is going under-the-radar is Terry Francona is now 9-0 in World Series games. Francona might very well be managing himself into the Hall of Fame.
For the Cubs, wasting a Jon Lester start was not in the plan. Lester had a rocky start and it was considered an off-night for his standards. Lester lasted just over five innings, giving up three runs on six hits. However, if you were to tell Cubs manager Joe Maddon that the Cubs would score zero runs for Lester, he would probably tell you that you were crazy. The Cubs had their chances in the seventh with bases loaded and nobody out. However, the bats could not get it done against the dominate Miller. There was one bright spot for the Cubs and that was the return of Kyle Schwarber. In his first game since April, Schwarber went one for three with a rocket double off-the-wall. If Schwarber can get going, he’ll bring this lineup a much needed spark.
Will Cleveland’s magical run as a city continue? Will the Cubs’ batters figure out a way to score off of Andrew Miller? The biggest storyline might be the impending weather. Despite the earlier start time, rain is still in the forecast so it will be interesting to see what the umpires will do once it hits. With a travel day scheduled for Thursday, both teams will do everything it takes to get the game in tonight.
