Kluber has the most strikeouts ever by an Indians pitcher in a World Series game: 8. Through three innings.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Last week, Andrew Miller said he thinks Corey Kluber and Jon Lester are mirror images, from their clean mechanics to mound demeanor/competitiveness. Watching them tonight, you see what Miller means. "I even told my wife this, I can't get past it," he said. "Other than the fact that one is left-handed and the other one is right-handed, I don't think there's a better comp in baseball."

Corey Kluber's two-seam fastball could run for mayor of Cleveland right now and win. Seven strikeouts among 1st 10 hitters.

That ties Corey Kluber's career high for strikeouts-looking in a game: Six so far. The Cubs have sent eight men to the plate.

Addison Russell & Francisco Lindor are both 22 years old. According to Elias this is the first WS game ever with 2 shortstops age 22 or younger

"Cubs fans know well the space between hope and disappointment... they've been waiting for this day for 71 years."

Corey Kluber has thrown five strikeouts so far. Will the Cubs get their bats going in the third inning?

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Jon Lester had given up one run in the World Series in his career (3 starts). He gave up 2 in a span of 4 pitches last inning.

Perez greets Kluber coming off the mound after Coghlan K to tap him on the chest, something he does after every inning with every pitcher.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

If you look at overall Series strategy, winning Game 1 with Corey Kluber going deep into the game could be huge. It would allow Terry Francona to potentially unleash Andrew Miller for multiple innings in Game 2. An important second for Kluber as he leaves Ben Zobrist stranded after Zobrist led off with a double.

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.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

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