The Cleveland Indians are just one win away from capturing their first World Series since 1948.
They’ll have a chance to do it Sunday night when they take on the Cubs in Game 5 of the World Series on FOX.
The Indians have spoiled the party thus far inside Wrigley Field as they have taken Games 3 and 4 to set themselves up with 3 chances to clinch a title.
The task won’t be easy though on Sunday, as the Indians get the Cubs ace in Jon Lester.
For Cleveland, getting out early is a must here. Bauer needs the confidence to settle in, along with taking this crowd out of the game. The Indians have the Cubs on the brink and an early lead will certainly start to put some doubts into the minds of Chicago.
Trevor Bauer will get the ball here, looking to rebound from a horrible Game 2.
Bauer had no feel in the cold, struggling with is command. 2 runs on 6 hits did him in as the Indians RH could not make it out of the 4th inning.
Getting a feel early and keeping the ball down are two musts for the RH here, as the Indians will have him on a short leash once again.
Counting the Cubs out would be so foolish, as this team still have plenty of belief they can erase this 3-1 deficit.
Chicago certainly does have their backs against the wall down 3-1 here, but they’ll look to take their final home game of 2016 and send the series back to Cleveland.
The Cubs will have to carry that Game 2 approach here, as they swung early on Bauer and didn’t chase anything he threw out of the zone with two strikes.
Jon Lester will get the ball here, looking to avenge his Game 1 loss.
Lester allowed 3 runs in Game 1 as he struggled to get out of the first inning. He was his own worst enemy, as he hit Brandon Guyer on an 0-2 pitch giving Cleveland an extra first inning run.
Here, keeping this crowd into it is a must. The Indians bats have come alive a bit, so keeping the ball down, like Bauer, is a must as well.
