Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 5, Indians 1 – October 26, 2016

Enhanced Box Scores

The Chicago Cubs have won a World Series game! The Chicago Cubs have won a World Series game!

Being that I was fortunate enough to be at tonight’s game, I am currently writing this while on my way home from Cleveland (not literally, but you know), and will thus spare the deeper dives until tomorrow.

Suffice it to say, the Cubs’ bats were extremely grindy tonight, and, while they left quite a few runners on base, they made the Indians’ pitchers work extremely hard. (Also: SCHWARBER!)

On the pitching side, Jake Arrieta seemed to have good stuff but spotty command (always harder to tell in person, so I could be off), and the bullpen kept things where they were from there.

There were a lot of Cubs fans in attendance tonight, and a whole lot of W flags flying after the win.

Three more to go …
