Crowd reaction outside Progressive Field after Andrew Miller struck out Kyle Schwarber


Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

The Cubs didn't score against Andrew Miller, but they made him throw 46 pitches - his most in any relief outing since 8/4/11 (71 vs the Indians)

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

These two guys have been the heroes for the Indians on a cold night. Nine strikeouts across six innings of scoreless ball for Corey Kluber, while Francisco Lindor is 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and a stolen base.

The most batters Andrew Miller had faced in any game in '16 before tonight was 8; faced 10 tonight.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

With Andrew Miller at 40-plus pitches, you have to wonder how many innings he will be available for Game 2.

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 Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

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

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

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').
