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.
