CLEVELAND -  Our Cleveland Indians take a second stab at clinching the World Series against the Chicago Cubs with Game 6 tonight at Progressive Field.

Josh Tomlin starts tonight for the Indians while the Cubs will start ace Jake Arrieta. Tomlin is pitching on three days' rest after he threw 58 pitches in his Game 3 no-decision.

Indians manager Terry Francona isn't sure who will play in left field tonight but with tonight's game at home Francona won't need to start DH Carlos Santana there to get him into the batting lineup. Francona says Santana more than held his own playing the outfield. He's considering Rajai Davis and Coco Crisp.

Eddie Robinson, the last living member of Cleveland's 1948 World Series title team, will be on hand at Progressive Field tonight as the Indians try to win it again for the first time in 68 years. Robinson is 95 now. He played first base on the '48 team, and hit .300 in the '48 series with six hits.

The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Monday afternoon that they pushed up their tip-off time to 6 p.m. to allow fans to watch as much of the World Series as they can. They’ll also show the remainder of the World Series game on the Humongotron in Quicken Loans Arena after the Cavs game wraps up.
