Cleveland “Opens”

October 26, 2016

The Cleveland Indians grabbed a World Series opening game victory for just the second time in their history, winning (6-0) in game 1 vs the Chicago Cubs.

On a night the NBA Cavaliers were honored for winning the 2016 NBA title, the city of Cleveland won a sports finals series opener for just the second time in 9 tries, the other victory coming in the 1920 World Series vs Brooklyn.

Aided by two fairly cheap first inning runs, the Indians made it 12 for 12 for teams getting the lead in the LCS or W.S. thus far this season. None of those 12 teams fell behind at any point in the victories.

Corey Kluber, brilliant for 6 innings, a shaky (I guess he is human) Andrew Miller and Cody Allen, pitching with a 6 run lead, after the second of catcher Roberto Perez’ home runs (he had the other 4 Cleveland runs batted in) combined to hand the Cubs their third shutout loss of this post-season.
