For those who are asking (or just wondering): No, this is not the first time two World Series teams have worn solid-colored alternate jerseys in the same game — not even close, in fact. In Game 1 of the 1979 Series, the Pirates wore black and the Orioles wore orange. Ah, the '70s.

Kyle Schwarber is on base again as he walked in the sixth inning reaching for the third time tonight. He has three hits and two walks in his first two games since April 7.

Jake Arrieta retired Coco Crisp, Tyler Naquin and Roberto Perez in order to keep his no-hitter intact through the fifth inning. Arrieta has thrown 79 pitches through five. He joins the Mets' Noah Syndergaard as the second pitcher to take a no-hitter into the sixth inning this postseason.

Jake Arrieta with a no-hitter through five innings. At 79 pitches. No way Maddon will consider letting him finish it.

Two weeks after Indians ended his career in ALDS, David Ortiz returned to Cleveland to accept Hank Aaron Award as AL's top slugger. Has retirement sunk in? "Not yet," Ortiz said. "Not going to be able to play another season hasn't hit me yet. It starts hitting you once January shows up and you start getting prepared and getting ready for spring training and all that stuff."
