It has still been over 70 years since the Cubs last scored a run in the World Series at Wrigley Field after a 1-0 Indians victory in Game 3. The leaves the Cubs in a “must-win” situation at home in Game 4, needing a victory to avoid a deficit that only a team like the 1985 Royals could overcome.
Corey Kluber (18-9, 3.14 ERA), who was brilliant in Game 1, will start tonight on just three days’ rest. Kluber has been Mr. October this year, with a 0.74 ERA in post-season play. Facing him will be 38-year old right-hander John Lackey (11-8, 3.35 ERA).
