CHICAGO– The Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 3-2 in Game 5 of the World Series Sunday night at Wrigley Field. Cleveland still leads the series 3-2.
Right hander Trevor Bauer took the mound for the Indians. He struggled in the Game 2 loss on Wednesday, lasting less than four innings, and giving up six hits and two runs.
But after three innings, Bauer was looking much more comfortable, delivering five strikeouts.
Jose Ramirez hits a solo shot in the second to give the Indians a 1-0 lead.
Chicago’s Kris Bryant hit his own one-run homer in the fourth inning, knotting the game. Anthony Rizzo followed up with a double then Ben Zobrist singled. Addison Russell knocked in Rizzo. David Ross’ sacrifice fly sent Zobrist home. That made the score 3-1 Cubs.
In the sixth inning, Rajai David hit a single and stole second. A fly ball by Francisco Lindor scored Davis so the Indians trail by one.
Game 6 is set for Tuesday at Progressive Field in Cleveland. If necessary, Game 7 will be Wednesday.
