World Series Game 5 Lineups

One more #BauerOutage and Cleveland could have their first championship since 1948.

I will gladly take another game like yesterday's for Game 5 of the World Series. The Cleveland Indians are up 3-1 on the Chicago Cubs; a win tonight will bring another championship home to Cleveland. A loss will send the series (and me) back to Cleveland for Game 6 on Tuesday. Here's who will start for both teams this evening:

Cleveland Indians

Chicago Cubs

Carlos Santana returns to left field as Rajai Davis slides over into center field and Mike Napoli retakes his position in the cleanup spot and at first base. With Jon Lester on the mound, Brandon Guyer finds himself in right field in place of Lonnie Chisenhall with what may be the final game of the 2016 World Series.
