World Series Game Six Preview: Chicago Cubs @ Cleveland Indians

Here we go ladies and gentleman, Game Six of the 2016 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians. The Chicago Cubs were able to stave off elimination on Sunday with Jon Lester on the mound and they will look to do so again tonight inside Progressive Field with Jake Arrieta on the mound. Meanwhile the Indians will counter with Josh Tomlin looking to avoid the final and decisive Game 7 by any means possible.

Arrieta won Game 2 of the World Series and will need to win just one more in his fourth start of the 2016 postseason. Arrieta won Game 2 inside Progressive Field, which will play host to these two teams tonight, allowing just one run on two hits in 5.2 innings pitched. Arrieta was a road warrior this season as well posting an 11-3 record with a 3.59 ERA in 15 starts so tonight should be just another day at the office for the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner.

Tomlin will take the ball on three days rest tonight hoping to clinch the World Series for the Indians for the first time since the 1948 season while also keeping the Curse of the Billy Goat alive. Last time Tomlin took the ball he threw 4.2 innings in Game 3 allowing zero runs in a victory for the Indians.

The game will be played at 8:08 pm ET inside Progressive Field and can be seen on FOX.
