With their comeback in Game 6, to stay alive, the Chicago Cubs will look to continue their comeback as the World Series shifts back to Cleveland. The Indians will look to take advantage of their home crowd, and slam the door on the Cubs’ hopes, to win their first World Series in 68 years.
The Cubs will send righty ace, Jake Arrieta, to the hill, to battle it out with Indians’ hurler Josh Tomlin. In his Game 2 start, Arrieta, lasted five and two thirds innings allowing one run, earned, on two hits, three walks, and six strikeouts; picking up the win. In Game 3, Josh Tomlin, fired four and two thirds shutout innings surrendering two hits, one walk, and striking out one.
In order to keep their comeback on course, the Chicago Cubs must wake up their all too somber bats. To snuff out the Cubs’ chances, the Indians pitching must be at its best. Make no mistake, if Francona finds himself with a lead after the fifth, he will not be timid about exhausting all of his best options to get the job done.
