Well, it all comes down to this game with the Cubs winning the last two games. Chicago finally flexed their offensive muscle in the Game 6 win scoring nine runs while in the other five games they had only totaled 10 runs and they were shut out twice with Kluber on the hill for one of them. He has simply been lights out in the playoffs and in this series picking up a couple of wins. Hendricks has also been solid even in a loss in his last start where he did not give up any earned runs. The Indians have only totaled five runs in their last two games, but their lineup will have a 2nd look at Hendricks tonight. The Cubs have the momentum in this series while the Indians have their Ace Kluber on the hill. He has been fantastic in the playoffs and especially in this series and that will continue tonight. Kluber will have a good outing, the Indians will get a small lead, and the awesome Cleveland bullpen will take it from there. The Indians will win this game in a low scoring affair and win their first World Series since 1948.
The Cubs won Game 5 at home to force a Game 6 in Cleveland where they are the betting favorite with Arrieta getting the start. No team has come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a World Series since the 1985 season. Chicago’s lineup will be bolstered by the return of Kyle Schwarber, who can’t play in the field, but will be the DH at Cleveland. In the two games he was DH in Games 1 and 2 he was 3/7. Chicago’s offense needs all the help they can get, as they have struggled in this series and have only totaled six runs in the last three games. The Cleveland offense has not been lighting it up in this series either, but they have scored six runs and seven runs in a couple of wins. Tomlin will be pitching on three-days rest for only the 2nd time in his career. He has been great in the playoffs, but Arrieta will get the better of him tonight and the Cubs will win another low scoring affair to force a Game 7.
Lester had his worst start of the playoffs in Game 1 of this series, but that game was in Cleveland and he has been great all season at home. The Chicago offense has struggled in this series only totaling seven runs with five coming in one game. However, that game was facing Bauer, who is getting the start tonight. The Indians’ relievers have been lights out in this series, but just like Game 2 they will not have the lead with the Chicago offense getting to Bauer early. The Cubs will win this game forcing a Game 6 in Cleveland.
The Indians have a 2-1 lead in this series and they send their Ace in Kluber to the hill tonight. He out-dueled Jon Lester in Game 1 of this series and he has not given up any earned runs in three of his four playoff starts. Kluber is pitching on three-days rest for the 2nd time in the post-season. The Cubs were shut out last night and they have been shut out in four of their 13 playoff games including two times this series. Cubs’ starter John Lackey has been decent in the playoffs and he has a lot of experience pitching in the World Series with his time in Boston and St. Louis. In his career in the World Series he has gone 26 innings and has given up 10 earned runs. Have to take the Indians in this one with Kluber on the mound, as he was stellar in Game 1 and has been lights out in the post-season. Cleveland will win this game in another low scoring affair and take a 3-1 lead in the series.
The Cubs are a major betting favorite in tonight’s game, which is the first World Series game at Wrigley Field since 1945. Kyle Hendricks was lights out in his two starts in the NLCS and faces a Cleveland team that only had four hits and one run in losing Game 2 of this series. The Indians’ offense has not been very good in this season’s playoffs, as in their 11 games they only scored more than five runs twice. Chicago’s Kyle Schwarber was added to the World Series roster after missing the regular season with a knee injury and after being the DH in the two games in Cleveland, where he went three for seven with two RBI’s, he will be on the bench in the three games at Chicago since there will be no DH. Tomlin has been solid in the playoffs, but this season in three interleague starts he has an ERA over 5.00. Hendricks will have another great outing and the Cubs will give him some support, as Chicago will win and take a 2-1 series lead.
The Indians are simply on fire and they have won all of their playoff games at home this season. However, they are a home underdog tonight even though Cubs’ starter Jake Arrieta has not been sharp in his two playoff starts. In those starts he is allowing batters to hit .273 off him and in the regular season batter hit .194 facing him. Bauer is the wild card in this one, as unlike his last start his finger has to hold up. If he can go a few solid innings the Indians are in good shape, as their bullpen has been lights out in the playoffs. The Cubs had scored 23 runs in three games before getting shut out in their last game. On the other side of the coin the Indians scored six runs in the Game 1 shutout, which equaled their highest run total for the playoffs. Bauer will hold up in this one and the bullpen will do the rest, as Cleveland will win and take a 2-0 lead in the series.
The Cubs are in their first World Series since 1945 and they caught fire in the NLCS winning their last three games. In winning their last three games facing the Dodgers the Cubs scored a total of 23 runs. They have Lester on the mound and he has been lights out in the playoffs. The Indians have won seven of their eight playoff games this season and they have been winning with great pitching. In their last six playoff games they have not scored more than four runs in any game. Kluber gets the nod in this game and he started the only game Cleveland has lost in this series even though he had a good outing. I think Lester will have the better outing in this game and the Cubs will score some runs and Lester will not need many. Chicago will take the first game of this series.
The Cubs have erupted for 18 runs in the last two games of this series after getting shut out in two straight games. However, in this game they face Kershaw, who was not sharp in his first two playoff starts this season, but was lights out in the Game 2 Dodgers’ win. L.A. has only totaled six runs in losing the last two games of this series and in the Game 2 win their only run came off a solo HR from Adrian Gonzalez. Kershaw has had an extra day of rest and while he could have gone in Game 5, L.A. Manager Dave Roberts did not start him because it was not an elimination game. Kershaw will have another great outing and lead the Dodgers to a win in a low scoring affair.
Maeda has not been sharp at all in his two playoff starts this season and now in this Game 5 faces a Cubs’ team that scored 10 runs in Game 4. L.A. will likely need a good outing from their rookie pitcher since their offense has only totaled 13 runs in the four games in this series. Lester should be fresh in this game, as he only had 77 pitches in the Game 1 win getting pulled in the 6th inning. In his last appearance facing the Dodgers in L.A. it was in late August where he went six inning and only allowed three hits and no earned runs, but he got no run support in the 1-0 Chicago loss. Maeda has struggled in the post-season while Lester has been solid and that will not change tonight. Lester will lead the Cubs to a win and they will take a 3-2 series lead.
Estrada got his first complete game in the Game 1 start, but still took the loss. In two regular season games facing the Indians he is 0-0 with an ERA of 3.75. The Blue Jays finally got on track on offense scoring five runs in the Game 4 win after totaling only three runs in the first three games of the series. The Indians have been winning in the series with their pitching, as they have only totaled nine runs in the four games. Estrada was on the hill last season in Game 5 of the ALCS and had a good outing in helping the Blue Jays stave off elimination in their series facing the eventual World Series winners Kansas City Royals. He will not be so fortunate tonight, as Miller will have a good start against a Blue Jays team that has never faced him and the Indians will win and advance to the Fall Classic.
While Hill was far from sharp in his first start of the playoffs he is a lefty and in the post-season the Cubs’ are only hitting .157 against lefties. Chicago had scored 14 combined runs in two playoff games before being dominated by Kershaw in the last game. The Dodgers have to feel good if they get a lead late, as reliever Kelly Jansen has 13 strikeouts in seven innings of work in the playoffs and he struck out four in two innings to get the save in Game 2. However, L.A. will not have the lead in this game facing Arrieta, as the last time he pitched at Dodgers Stadium he no hit them. In his last two starts he has gone 16 innings and not allowed a single earned run. Chicago will give Arrieta some run support tonight, he will not need much, and on the hill lead the Cubs to a win to take 2-1 series lead.
Even though the Indians have won eight in a row and the first two games of this series they are major road underdogs tonight. While Bauer was solid against the Blue Jays this season he is only 1-1 with a 6.27 ERA in four career games facing them and 1-1 with a 7.11 ERA in two career games at Toronto. He did not end the season well giving up a total of 30 earned runs in his last seven starts. The Blue Jays have only totaled one run in the first two games of this series, but in their last two home games they have combined to score 12 runs. Their bats will come alive tonight facing Bauer and Toronto will get back in this series with a win.
The Blue Jays and Indians face off in Game 1 of this ALCS where the winner of the series will head to the World Series. In the ALDS in their respective sweeps the Indians outscored the Red Sox 15-7 and the Blue Jays outscored the Rangers 22-10. Both teams are riding high and each has won six straight games. Also, both starting pitchers in this Game 1 had solid outings in the first games of the ALDS. Estrada won the first game in the ALDS on the road and in his last three starts on the road he has only given up one earned run. What makes that stat even more impressive is that those starts were against teams that had solid lineups in the Mariners, Rangers, and Red Sox. This game will be a pitcher’s duel, but at home the Indians will give Kluber some run support, he will not need much, and Cleveland will take a 1-0 series lead with a win in a low scoring affair.
Tough call in this one, as neither starter in this game had a solid outing in their first start of the series. On top of that neither starter has been solid in their last two outings overall. Washington has outscored the Dodgers 18-11 in the last three games of this series and while each pitcher may struggle the Nationals have the better lineup and that will be key in this game. This game will be close and not a pitcher’s duel and Washington will get the upper hand at the plate winning and advancing to the NLCS.
The Giants are back in this series and have Moore on the hill and he has given up only two earned runs in his last two starts, both of which were at home. The Giants had only totaled two runs in the first two games of the season before scoring six in last night’s game. San Francisco’ Buster Posey went 3 for 5 in last night’s game and in two of the three games in this series he has had multi-hit games. Lackey has been a solid playoff pitcher in his career, but the last time he faced the Giants in the post-season was in 2014 when he was with the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals took the loss in that game and the same thing will happen tonight with Lackey on the hill, as the Giants will get to him and their shaky bullpen will hold up, as San Francisco will win and send this series to a decisive Game 5 in the Windy City.
Great pitching match up in this game between reigning Cy Young winner Arrieta facing off against Bumgarner. Not only does Bumgarner have the lowest playoff ERA in MLB history, but the Giants have won his last four games against the Cubs when he has been on the hill. Arrieta was not sharp in his last start of the regular season and in five starts in September, which the Cubs were 2-3, he went 29 innings and gave up 15 earned runs. Pitching has been the key in this series, as the Cubs have only totaled six runs and the Giants have only totaled two runs. San Francisco has won six of their last seven home playoff games and with Bumgarner on the hill that trend will continue. The Giants will win this Game 3 and force a Game 4 in San Francisco.
The Red Sox have their backs against the wall in this series after losing the first two games in Cleveland. They have the highest scoring offense in the Majors, but in the first two games of this series they have only totaled four runs all of which came in Game 1. Buchholz did not have any success against the Indians this season, but his two starts facing them came before June and he has been solid as of late. He will be facing a Cleveland lineup that has totaled 11 runs in this series and 27 in their five game winning streak. Tomlin has been pitching great lately and that will continue in this Game 3 in Boston. He will have a good outing, the Indians’ lineup will get to Buchholz, and Cleveland will win sweeping the series and advance to the ALCS.
The Dodgers have had the number of the Nationals this season and they are the road betting favorite in Game 2 today. Not only did the Dodgers win Game 1 to take home field advantage in the series, but they have to have a lot of confidence knowing they won even when their Ace Kershaw was not at hos best. Hill has not pitched against the Nationals since the 2009 season. Roark’s only career start against the Dodgers was this season and the game was in L.A. and the Nats were struggling in the midst of a seven game losing streak. He will have a good outing today and get help from the lineup, as Washington win win to even the series.
The Dodgers did not finish the season well and they were five games under .500 on the road this season, but they have their Ace in Kershaw on the mound. He has struggled in the post-season in his career, but did have a great outing in his lone one facing the Nationals this season. Scherzer was not sharp in his last outing and in his last four starts of the season, all Washington wins, he lasted 24 innings and gave up 12 earned runs. The L.A. lineup only totaled four runs in getting swept in their last season series. While Kershaw has not been the dominating pitcher in the playoffs that were are used to seeing in the regular season that will change in this game. He will have a great outing and lead the Dodgers to a win in Game 1 of this series.
Even though the Red Sox did not finish the season well they enter Game 1 as the betting favorite even on the road. They do have 22-game winner Porcello on the hill, but the potent Boston lineup struggled ending the season only scoring 17 runs in their last six games. On the other side of the coin in their last three games the Indians totaled 16 runs. Bauer really pitched poorly in the month of September, but was decent in his last outing in the beginning of this month. The difference in this game will be the Cleveland offense, as they will get to Porcello and the Indians will take the first game of this series.
