Game 2 of the 2016 World Series went to the Chicago Cubs. Jake Arrieta pitched 5 1/3 innings of hitless baseball, and Kyle Schwarber drove in a couple runs for the Cubs.
The series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians is tied 1-1 going into Game 3. All eyes will be on Wrigley Field on Friday night as the Cubs host their first World Series game since October 8, 1945. As a reminder of how long ago that was, America’s victory in Europe in World War II occurred on May 8, 1945.
A couple records were broken in Cleveland’s 6-0 victory over the Cubs in Game 1 of the 2016 World Series last night. The first record was set by Indians starting pitcher, Corey Kluber, who started the game by striking out eight of nine batters by the third inning. After the final out was recorded, Indians manager Terry Francona set the second record of the evening by becoming the first manager in history to win his first nine World Series games.
Game 2 of the World Series starts at 7:08 PM EDT this evening. On the mound, it’ll be Trevor Bauer (if his finger can handle it) for the Indians vs. Jake Arrieta for the visiting Cubs.
