10/27/2016 | Hitter-friendly confines? Forecast: Mighty wind

With Game 3 projected to have winds of 10 to 20 mph and gusts beyond that, we could see plenty of offense. How badly could that impact the pitchers? Let's check out Tomlin and Hendricks this postseason to see how they might be affected.

10/27/2016 | Tomlin a crucial part of Tribe's master plan

Josh Tomlin won both of his postseason starts, one in the AL Division Series victory over Boston, the other over Toronto in the AL Championship Series. In those two starts, he gave up three runs over 10 2/3 innings. Another performance of that sort would be just about right for the Indians.

10/27/2016 | Tribe's Series rotation not set in stone

The Indians have announced their planned rotation for the remainder of the World Series, but everything is subject to change. Team president Chris Antonetti made that clear during Thursday night's workout at Wrigley Field on the eve of Game 3 against the Cubs.

10/27/2016 | Callaway clicks quite well with Francona

Terry Francona came to Cleveland with the pedigree of having won two World Series in Boston, and had he imported his own hand-picked pitching coach when he took over as the manager of the Indians before the 2013 season, he would have been well within his right to do so. But the folks in the Indians' front office presented Mickey Callaway, who at the time was their Minor League pitching coordinator, as an option to consider. And to say Francona's eventual selection of Callaway has provided a productive pairing is an understatement.

10/27/2016 | Merritt's competitiveness instilled as a kid

Before each pitch, Ryan Merritt extended his arms skyward, collecting himself before shifting into his delivery. Watching from his home in Frisco, Texas, Kevin Cullen could not help but be reminded of when he first scouted the Indians lefty and saw a mix of nervous ticks.

10/27/2016 | Tribe leaning toward Santana in LF at Wrigley

The wind could be howling out at Wrigley Field tonight and the brick wall that exists beneath the ivy is unforgiving. As if that is not intimidating enough, Carlos Santana will be dealing with the inherent pressure that comes with playing on the World Series stage.

10/27/2016 | The road to World Series Game 3: IRL

After the Cubs' 5-1 win over the Indians in Game 2 on Wednesday evened the series at 1 game apiece, the World Series shifts to Chicago for Game 3 tonight (7:30 p.m. ET air time /8 ET game time on FOX). There's World Series fever everywhere you look in Chicago as Wrigley Field prepares to host its first Fall Classic game since Oct. 10, 1945.

10/27/2016 | Gold Glove Award finalists revealed

The finalists were revealed for the 2016 Gold Glove Awards for the American and National League.

10/27/2016 | Historic Wrigley set for Game 3 (Fri., 8 ET, FOX)

With the first two games of the World Series in the books, the Fall Classic now shifts to historic Wrigley Field for Friday's Game 3. The historic stadium should be ready for its close-up.

10/27/2016 | More homers equal more wins in '16 postseason

On a cold, damp Wednesday night in Cleveland, not a single ball cleared the outfield wall at Progressive Field as the Cubs beat the Indians, 5-1, in Game 2 of the World Series. In a home-run happy year, it was the first time in 30 postseason games that neither team went deep.

10/27/2016 | The Great Jake's! Game 2 is all Arrieta

Jake Arrieta took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and Kyle Schwarber had a pair of RBIs as the Cubs handed the Indians a 5-1 loss at Progressive Field on Wednesday night to even the World Series at a game apiece.

10/27/2016 | Walking dread: Tribe gives Cubs easy access

The Cubs were the only team to average more than four walks per game this season, and Cleveland issued only two free passes to take Game 1 of the Fall Classic. But with eight walks in Game 2 on Wednesday, they lost, 5-1. For the Indians to reclaim the edge, they'll need to avoid putting so many runners on base.

10/27/2016 | Kipnis shrugs off uncharacteristic mishaps

Jason Kipnis was charged with two errors in a 5-1 Game 2 loss to the Cubs that evened this World Series at one win apiece.

10/27/2016 | Salazar shakes off rust in relief appearance

Indians right-hander Danny Salazar hadn't pitched since Aug. 9 due to a right forearm strain, but he proved he was ready to contribute with his first professional relief appearance Wednesday. Although he didn't factor into the decision in the Cubs' 5-1 win over the Indians in Game 2 of the World Series, he showed he will be a major weapon moving forward.

10/27/2016 | Scuffling offense catches up to Indians in G2

Measured in decibels, perhaps Wednesday's highest-octane moment at Progressive Field occurred in the sixth inning of World Series Game 2.

10/27/2016 | Tomlin's 'new' curve could cause Cubs fits in Game 3

Josh Tomlin rarely cracks 90 mph with his fastball, and that might not seem like a great fit against a powerful Cubs lineup in Game 3. That said, Tomlin has added spin and movement to his curve, and that could work out well, since the Cubs struggle against curveballs.

10/27/2016 | DYK: Arrieta's historic no-hit bid

The Cubs' series-evening triumph Wednesday was their first World Series game win since Game 6 of the 1945 Fall Classic on Oct. 8, 1945. That's a span of 25,952 days, which is a numerical palindrome (the same number forward and backward). Here are some other facts and figures to know about Game 2.

10/26/2016 | After World Series Game 2: IRL

The Cubs claimed Game 2 of the 112th World Series, 5-1, on Wednesday night, knotting the series at 1-1 with the Indians as both clubs continue their pursuit of an elusive championship.

10/26/2016 | Series makes long-awaited Wrigley return in Game 3

The ivy is changing from green to red, an awesome autumnal attribute the public has rarely seen. The corner of Clark and Addison will finally be bustling with activity in the final days of October. The World Series is coming to Wrigley Field on Friday night, and it is coming with the Cubs and Indians knotted at one win apiece in a fascinating Fall Classic matchup with historic implications.

10/26/2016 | Tale of the Tape: Game 3 starters on a roll

The World Series tied at a game apiece, the Cubs turn to one of the best pitchers in baseball Friday in Kyle Hendricks. He opposes Indians starter Josh Tomlin, who is coming off two impressive starts already this postseason.

10/26/2016 | Finger fine, but Bauer exits G2 start in 4th

Though Trevor Bauer's finger did not pose any problems on Wednesday night, the vulnerability of the Indians' rotation was on full display in a 5-1 loss to the Cubs in Game 2 of the World Series at Progressive Field.

10/26/2016 | During Game 2: IRL

The Cubs claimed Game 2 of the 112th World Series, 5-1, on Wednesday night, knotting the series at 1-1 with the Indians as both clubs continue their pursuit of an elusive championship.

10/26/2016 | Tribe great Baerga leads Game 2 festivities

Carlos Baerga, a member of the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame and the Tribe's 1995 American League championship team, threw out the first pitch prior to Game 2 of the 2016 World Series at Progressive Field on a rainy Wednesday night in Cleveland.

10/26/2016 | Game 2 doesn't go according to plan for Tribe

It was creeping across the radar, a big green blob threatening the big green field of play. The forecast was foreboding enough that the start time for Game 2 of the World Series was moved up an hour, and the looming rain turned out to be an ideal metaphor for the storm that was approaching an Indians team whose run to this Fall Classic was nearly -- and, evidently, unsustainably -- free of flops.
