Indians Win World Series Game 3, Watch In CLE

The Chicago Cubs waited 71 years to host a home World Series game...they'll have to wait longer for a win.

The Cleveland Indians rode amazing pitching and just enough hitting to a win at Wrigley Field last night...

Pinch hitter Coco Crisp hits an RBI single in the 7th, scoring pinch runner Michael Martinez.

Josh Tomlin, Andrew Miller and Cody Allen blanked the Cubs.

The final score - Tribe 1, Cubs 0 -  as the Indians now lead the World Series two games to one.

Game Four is tonight at 8:08 from Wrigley Field...Corey Kluber is back on the mound for the Tribe. The game is on 1590 WAKR.

Wrigley Field was packed for last night's World Series Game 3, but so was Progressive Field, even though the actual game was being played hundreds of miles away.

Indians fans cheered loudly in downtown Cleveland at the first road game watch party.

And there will be another watch party at Progressive Field on Saturday night...but it's already sold out.

 

Josh Tomlin had the Game 3 start, and his father had a thrill.

Jerry Tomlin was in the stands at Wrigley Field, watching his son play in the World Series. Jerry Tomlin became paralyzed from the chest down a couple of months ago, but was among a small group of Tribe fans watching his son pitch in the big show.

AUDIO Indians and Sox Set For Game 1

It's finally here. The wait is over and the Cleveland Indians and their fans are ready to "Rally Together " at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario for the ALDS. 

Terry Francona, the Indians' manager spoke to the media prior to the game, saying starting pitcher Trevor Bauer will be ready for the Red Sox lineup tonight. 
 
 He also discussed his catcher rotation, which was a subject of debate.
 
"We thought that having a third catcher could potentially impact us more than having one more pitcher," Francona said.
 
 
Red Sox skipper John Farrell also spoke to the media about his club leading into the series, saying they're focused and ready to go.

First pitch set for 8:08pm on 1590 WAKR.
