CHICAGO (AP) — For the first time in a long time a World Series game is being played in Chicago’s Wrigley Field tonight. The National League Champion Cubs are playing host to the American League Champion Indians. The clubs split the first two games played in Cleveland’s Progressive Field.
On the mound this evening for the home team is Kyle Hendricks with Josh Tomlin going for Cleveland.
To get around the loss of not having a designated hitter, the Indians plan on using Carlos Santana in left field with Mike Napoli at first base.
The Cubs won’t have the bat of Kyle Schwarber in the lineup as he wasn’t medically cleared to play in the field. If the series goes back to Cleveland for Games 6 and 7 he would resume his duties as DH.
Following tonight’s game the series will resume tomorrow night in Wrigley for Game 4.
