World Series Game 2: Trevor Bauer faces off against Chicago Cubs

New, comments

The last time Bauer pitched, he left his literal mark on the field in the form of blood dripping from his finger. Today, with a repaired hand, he faces off against Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs.

Cleveland leads World Series 1-0


The Cleveland Indians lead the Chicago Cubs 1-0 in the World Series. The only way that that will get old is if the Indians win tonight and lead the Cubs 2-0. Last night was hopefully an awakening to folks around the country who have discounted the Cleveland Indians as a legitimate contender for the World Series championship. Hell, even Nate Silver over at 538 is giving the Tribe a 55% to win it all after last night's victory. But let's not get ahead of ourselves; today, the Cleveland Indians will need another strong outing from their pitching staff, and they will also have to breakthrough against a pitcher who is very, very good.

Pending this game doesn't get moved due to rain, here are the starting 9 for your Tribe:
