Did we see that coming?! It's highly unlikely to imagine the Cubs being shut out but Cleveland came to play. They shut out Toronto to go to the World Series and now they shut out Chicago to win Game 1. They say that the winner of Game 1 wins the Series but stats can lie sometimes.
I was very impressed with Corey Kluber and Roberto Perez tonight. Both were the MVPs of the game because Perez crushed TWO home runs (the second was even cooler, even though I like the barely out home runs). He absolutely came out of nowhere and I love players like that!
Kluber did not come out of nowhere but he really impressed in his World Series debut. He made the Cubs line up whiff and made everything go to plan (Francona wanted the pitchers for the night to be Kluber-Miller- Allen). He also totalled 9 strikeouts, so he really didn't do too shabby (that's pretty dang good since it's against the best in the National League).
Summer isn't complete without baseball.
