The Cleveland Indians announced their starting pitchers for the first three games of the World Series against the Cubs.
To no one's surprise, Corey Kluber will get the start for Game 1 on Tuesday. Kluber has been the team's best starter all season. In three starts this postseason, he is 2-1 with a 0.98 ERA and 20 strikeouts.
Trevor Bauer and Josh Timlin will get the nod for Games 2 and 3. Bauer has only made two starts this October, but his last one in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Toronto Blue Jayes was cut short after 21 pitches due to a finger injury.
After those three, the order has yet to be determined.
Indians manager Terry Francona did say to Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com that Kluber "could be an option" to start Game 4 on three days rest, which he did in the ALCS.
Less than 24 hours after beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, the Cubs are quickly shifting their focus to their World Series opponent.
The Cubs went to Wrigley Field on Sunday afternoon to gather their things and shortly after departed to Cleveland to prep for their World Series matchup against the Indians.
Cleveland will host Games 1 and 2 on the main stage, with the first game beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. CT. on Fox.
