It's November? Indians, Cubs to play Game 6 in warm weather


Second, the Cubs will also be able to use Kyle Schwarber. He had just one at-bat in Chicago as a pinch hitter, and it was a quiet pop fly out off Indians reliever Bryan Shaw.

So you see? There's always hope. Someone told me 17 times this year we lost a game and went on to win three in a row.

Instead, Francona ended up in Cleveland, about two hours from where he grew up in western Pennsylvania.

Four months ago, the Indians manager watched on a TV from his office at Progressive Field as Cleveland's streets overflowed during a joyous celebration honoring LeBron James and the Cavaliers for winning the National Basketball Association title and stopping the city's 52-year-title drought.

I'll check with him tomorrow.

"From that vantage point, I think they were expecting 700,000 and I think they about doubled it".

There will be no saving his men for tomorrow regarding the way Cubs manager Joe Maddon looks at Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night. They'll turn to 2015 NL Cy Young Award victor Jake Arrieta in Game 6, while the Indians counter with Josh Tomlin, a back-end starter working on short rest.

"Hopefully we can get a suite and we can walk over there as a team and watch our home team go for a championship as well".

"I don't know that we could do what we did yesterday, necessarily". I had the (final score) at school. Not everyone in Cleveland knows his face, though.

Chicago closed to 3-2 with Sunday's win at Wrigley Field. The worker had no idea she was talking to someone famous.

"There was sheer joy", he said. "So there's a lot of little subplots going on". Lonnie Chisenhall has recovered from his Sunday illness and is back in the lineup, hitting sixth.

After playing two games in left field and one at first in Chicago, Santana is batting first as the designated hitter.

While it is understood we gave out Cleveland to win the series here last week, that selection was based on the bookie's adjustment to the public's desire to back their Cubbies.

Five teams have come back from a 3-1 deficit in a best-of-seven World Series to win it all, including the Pirates twice.

The Cubs have staved off elimination once, and need to do so yet again to force a winner-take-all Game 7 on Wednesday night.

Chapman threw 42 pitches in Game 5, getting the first eight-out save of his major league career. I recall now how surprised everyone was that the Rays, who had no history or mystique to speak of, and who had blown a huge lead in a clinching situation in Fenway, were able to overcome Boston, the defending champions and a team filled with players that had personal experience with big comebacks. In order to win, the offense must show up behind the pitching of Jake Arrieta.

Heyward is making his third straight start after a four-game benching. Davis had two hits and stole three bases in Game 5. He is 3 for 11 in the Series.

Game 7 (Cubs -115, 6 o20): Kluber has limited this Cubs' roster to just a.091 clip over 44 at-bats.

But there's an even bigger drought at stake than that: The Cubs haven't won the World Series since 1908.

The Cubs won a Series game at Wrigley for the first time since Game 6 in 1945.

A small group of Cleveland Indians participate in an optional team workout at Progressive Field, Monday, Oct. 31, 2016 in preparation for baseball's upcoming World Series Game 6 against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday night in Cleveland.

Seven months later, on November 1, Cleveland is enjoying unusually warm autumn weather.
