If Kyle Schwarber is going to play hero tonight. It will have to come later. His first AB ended like his previous three career at-bats against Corey Kluber -- with a strikeout.

Kyle Schwarber's first at-bat of the year ends in a strikeout.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyle Schwarber strikes out on a full count in his first AB since April 7.

Corey Kluber being strongly considered to start Games 1, 4 and 7 in this series. Has thrown only 353 pitches over the last 30 days.

Francisco Lindor has been the Indians' MVPP (Most Valuable Position Player) this whole postseason. He started the inning with his two-out single and stolen base and then came around to score.

Adam Reisinger 

The crowd in Quicken Loans Arena just got as loud as it has all night -- not because of Kiss Cam, but because the Indians scored. The Cavs fans are now chanting "Let's Go Tribe."

Paul Lukas 

Indians starter Corey Kluber must be superstitious about keeping the same cap. You can see the outline where the Postseason patch was removed and replaced by the World Series patch.

Even if Lester could throw to bases, he would've had no shot at that. 20 pitches and counting for the Cubs' lefty.

David Ross trying to slow Lester down. Slow walk to the mound, deliberate chat. 3-0 count vs. Santana.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

The Indians reviewed videotape of the Brewers against Lester, to prep for this game. MILW ran well against him the last two years.

$1,000: Median price paid on StubHub for a ticket to Game 1 of the World Series in Cleveland.

The Cubs are 8-2 this season when the game time temp is 50 or below. The Indians are 2-7 in such conditions. It's 50 degrees at Game time for Game 1. (ESPN Stats)
