Dinger! The home run’s will continue as two big-slugging teams, the Cubs and Indians, battle it out in game 2 of baseball’s World Series on Oct. 26th. The start time for this game has been changed to 7pm EST due to threat of rain, so don’t miss a pitch and watch it all online here.
Game 2 of the 2016 MLB World Series will feature the Chicago Cubs ace pitcher Jake Arrieta dealing against the Cleveland Indians’ Trevor Bauer. This duel comes a day after the Indians had a record-breaking performance from their top man Corey Kluber. Corey struck out 8 batters in the first 3 innings of game 1, a World Series record, as the Indians went on to shutout the Cubbies 6-0 in Cleveland. Can Chicago bounce-back and split the first two games on the road? WATCH CUBS VS. INDIANS ONLINE HERE and find out.
The Indians beat the Cubs in game 1 thanks to the dominant pitching of Corey and with the help of the big bat of their catcher, Roberto Perez. The Tribe was lifted by Roberto’s 4 RBI’s on 2 home runs which they certainly hope can continue in game 2 against Jake. The Cubs will have to do a better job stopping the explosive offense of the Indians early in the game. Chicago’s starter in game 1, Jon Lester, gave up 2 runs in the first inning after loading-up the bases. That can’t happen again if the Cubs are to have a chance in game 2.
The Cubs will need to start giving their starters run support if they expect to not get swept out of this series. The Indians have dropped only one game in the 2016 postseason and looked unstoppable during game 1 as the Cleveland Cavaliers hoisted their NBA Championship banner across the street on the same night. Good luck to both teams in this series!
