Terry Francona said after Game 1 that having a hot Andrew Miller is what allowed him to let Corey Kluber leave with something left in the tank. A factor that could help if the Indians decide to bring Kluber back in Game 4 at Wrigley.

Indians beat Cubs 6-0 to take Game 1 of World Series. The ViewFromVegas is they did it after closing as -110 home favorites and the game stayed under the total of 6.5 runs. The Indians are 8-1 in the playoffs and 8-1 with the under.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Corey Kluber overpowered the Cubs for six innings and Cleveland's airtight bullpen finished up as the Indians beat Chicago 6-0 in Game 1 of the World Series. On a historic night featuring franchises that have gone a combined 176 years without winning a title, Cleveland jumped on Jon Lester for two early runs and added a third tally in the fourth inning on Roberto Perez's solo homer. Perez added a 3-run shot late to ice it. The Indians improved to 70-1 this season when they grab a lead of at least three runs. Kyle Schwarber doubled in his return for the Cubs, but that was the lone bright spot for Chicago. Game 2 is Wednesday.
