The Cubs Even up the World Series
The Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 5 to 1 on October 26. This is looking like a great World Series matchup; both of these teams want this not just for themselves but also for the fans and their city.
From the first game it looked like the Indians were going to have ease in this World Series, but the Cubs proved that they aren’t going to roll over and give it to them. If you’re betting money on who’s going to win the next game, I’d hold your money. From the looks of it, it could go either way.
In the top of the first, Anthony Rizzo hit a RBI double off of Trevor Bauer that scored Kris Bryant. As the game went on, the Cubs starter, Jake Arrieta, settled down and got a handful of fly ball outs that were knocked down by the wind coming in from center field.
Arrieta left the game with two outs in the sixth for lefty Mike Montgomery. Montgomery followed up by striking out four batters over two innings before closer Aroldis Chapman came on for a four-out save.
Kyle Schwarber for the Cubs was expected to miss the entire season due to multiple torn ligaments in his knee. In Game two, he went 2-for-3 with a walk and drove in two of the Cubs' five runs.
The Cubs had nine hits and no errors, while the Indians had four hits and two errors; these errors also led to the amount of runs by the Cubs.
