ESPN Stats and Information  

Tonight is the latest date on the calendar that the Cubs have played a home game at Wrigley Field. Last year, they were eliminated Oct. 21. The Cubs played home games of the 1910 World Series on Oct. 22 and 23, but that was at their first home park, West Side Grounds.

Cubs are 41-13 this season when Dexter Fowler gets on base in the first inning, which is exactly what Chicago's leadoff hitter did to put the Cubs in front tonight.

This is the first time all season that Kershaw has allowed 2 runs in the first inning of a game.

Who said Mardi Gras was indigenous to New Orleans? It's a festival outside Wrigley Field.

The last World Series game played at Wrigley Field was October 10th, 1945. Cubs lost Game 7 to the Tigers 9-3. Game 3 of W.S. is next Friday

Cubs hitters clearly taking the same approach they took in Games 4-5 - shortening up, trying to stay in center of field or the other way. It's working

Envisioned a lot of scenarios for tonight. But never envisioned Kershaw giving up 2 hits and falling behind 7 pitches into his evening

Cubs are on the board! Kris Bryant's RBI single scores Dexter Fowler to give Chicago a 1-0 lead in the 1st.

Baseball Tonight @BBTN

Dexter Fowler (#Cubs) had a .479 on-base percentage in the first inning in the regular season. That's the highest in MLB.

Just had a Cubs fan tell our ESPN crew at a bar across the street that he came directly here from Mass. "And I prayed for the Cubs," he said.

Will the Cubs fly the W tonight?
