CHICAGO-- The Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 in Game 3 of the World Series.
Cleveland now leads the series 2-1.
The Indians bats were working in the first inning, but the Tribe ended up stranding two runners.
In the top of the fifth, a base hit and two walks, loaded the bases for Cleveland. But they stranded even more runners.
We finally got a score in the seventh inning. Roberto Perez hit a single and Michael Martinez was sent in to run. Tyler Naquin's sacrifice bunt moved Martinez, who then got to third on a wild pitch. Rajai Davis drew a walk and Martinez was able to score on a single by Coco Crisp.
The two previous games have been won by the team with the best starting pitcher. In Game 1, 2014 Cy Young Winner Corey Kluber set a World Series record with eight strikeouts in the first three innings for the Tribe's 6-0 victory. While in Game 2, Jake Arrieta pitched a no-hitter through sixth innings, leading to the Cubs' 5-1 win.
Games 4 and 5 will also be played in Chicago. The Tribe will return home for Games 6 and 7, if necessary.
