Andrew Miller gets out of the jam, but what could have been? Should Terry Francona have left Corey Kluber in for the bottom of the seventh?

Andrew Miller continues what may be the greatest relief run in postseason history escaping a bases loaded jam.

Joe Maddon stuck with Kyle Schwarber despite the Indians bringing in lefty star Andrew Miller. Schwarber drew a walk to keep a rally going. He's 1-2 with that free pass.

After three plate appearances, Joe Maddon already trusts Schwarber more than a lot of the guys on his bench. Unbelievable.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Corey Kluber had 9 strikeouts and no walks in Game 1 of the World Series. He's the sixth pitcher in the history of the Fall Classic to have at least 9 K without issuing a free pass.

Talked to the great Andrew Miller today about his success this postseason; told me the key for him has been to: "Trust the process" (which really sounds like a 'Maddonism').

The start of Game 2 on Wednesday has been moved up one hour due to rain in the forecast. The game is now scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET.

It's been a loud night in Cleveland, and with good reason.

During the break between the top and bottom halves of the sixth inning, the Progressive Field Jumbotron played LeBron's message during the Cavs' ring ceremony.

The Cavaliers' humongous video board is serving as the best view of the World Series outside of Progressive Field itself.

As the Cavs game lets out, they move towards Progressive Field. Thousands now watching game on big TVs between arena and stadium

Cubs warning: Andrew Miller warming. Of course, Chicago has had no luck with Corey Kluber.
