homered it tonight will deal with the former closer hector rondon. he was the guy until the cubs went out and got chapman. certainly was the guy last year, rondon. trying to keep it within reach, 3-0, bottom of the eighth. good speed on. perez, ball one. trevor bauer and a jake arrieta, tomorrow night, start again our earlier because of the weather forecast. time-outs, called before the page. >> john: good thing rondon went ahead and throw it, trying to stop. he did the right thing even though time was called.

swing he did, but not the location rondon wanted. the first runs cleveland has scored after the sixth inning all postseason, on one of swing from roberto perez. what a night for the young catcher. >> john: rondon was pulling his breaking ball, this is the definition of a hanger. one a guy goes up there and to seize one of middle middle. this is a hanger, this is when a pitcher knows as soon as he let's go he does not have to turn around and rondon did not
list of cleveland indians hitters with multiple homer games in the postseason, with manny ramirez and jim tell me. thome. >> john: amazing what the world series can do. guys that you would traditionally think because of their batting average and they are struggling at the plate, you make them try to beat you. for take notice and don't hang anything in here. >> joe: now kipnis, strike one. andrew miller, another night, another job well done. it wasn't as routine as some of the others have been. most important stat for him is putting up zeroes and its 6-0
that's strike to one kipnis. >> john: the indians had to be very opportunistic and how they score, they don't score a ton in this postseason. two outs, baited, stolen base, to uncharacteristic walks out of lester. swinging bunt hits, and a hit batsman. those two runs with two outs. right here a three-run homer with two outs. that's how they been getting it done. >> joe: started with a run to guyer. kipnis rose what at first, rondon comes in with one and two out. roberto perez goes deep. it's been a big night in cleveland, ohio. championship banner raised next door, for the world champion cavaliers and at the indians three defensive outs away from a

?? ?? lease a 2016 lincoln mkx for $349 a month. only at your lincoln dealer. whether you're wearinbeads,rs... stripes... or cheese. if you bleed blue... black and yellow, purple or various shades of red... this is your beer. >> joe: javier baez swung at the first bits, fouled at the back as the indians bring their
look at his numbers during the postseason. 5 for 5 in the save category, this is the formula best terry francona wanted. kluber, miller, alan. he's got in the timely hits, the cubs have not obviously. indians pitchers are doing to the cubs what they dated to the red sox and then the blue jays. >> john: cody allen is just another if you ask me. similar stuff but just a much firmer fastball. he can spend it with a breaking ball that falls off the table, pretty much going to go after him with a six-run lead. >> joe: he might spin onee just to get a strikeout. >> joe: and he does.
the indians held in boston and toronto to a combined average of .129 with runners on base. that's how you win postseason series. tonight, the cubs are 2 for 13 with runners on base and eight strikeouts. >> john: they've just done a better job with two strikes, three have a two count going for the kill when they haven't. only making a couple mistakes, really. >> joe: here comes a 1-0 pitch to willson contreras, 0 for 1 this is entering as a pinch-hitter. that almost got on the hands,
thrown by the reds against the a's in 1990, 7-0 win for cincinnati. 2110 pitch. that's foul. >> john: earlier, i thought the key for the cubs was going to be don't miss the fastball and they really never were given an opportunity to locate or get after the fastball because corey kluber painted the fastball on the inner part of the plate zobrist had one of the better approaches the way he was swinging. >> joe: he had three hits, that's high, 3-1. >> john: sometimes in this game, i know even pete rose talked about the ability to make in game adjustments and back off the plate. guys today just aren't equipped to do that, younger players are stuck in their ways, they certainly have had success. >> joe: that's well hit into
off-the-wall! contreras with an extra-base hit with one out. he will hold at second with a one-out double. chisenhall with a leap and could not find the baseball. >> john: i think contrary stop this was a homer right here. you've got to run, it would have been a trouble. the scores and 6-0 but in a tighter game, you cannot afford to assume anything at this level. and this importance. not running out of the box cost him an extra-base. instead of a triple, it's a double as chisenhall could not make the connection and right. >> john: the stands in right field, the wind is blowing in, the stands in right field have the three tiers two may be block that went just a little bits, that ball carried pretty well to right field.
russell. let's just finish the story -- two stories to finish. the indians looking for back-to-back shutouts. they threw a shutout in game five of the alc lcs in toro, trying to back that up with a shed out here in game number one of the world series. here comes a 1-0. that's up to alan right now and at the moment addison russell last time they didn't, the indians as a franchise, 1920. shutouts thrown in games six and a seven over brooklyn, and then known as the robins, became the dodgers. with their two world championships along with 1948. here's a 1-1.
to get through three at bats. when i was closing in a situation like this and a six-run lead, i never was going to show the opponents what i was going to do to them in a tight situation. that's the only reason i hate 6-0, getting your closer in. i get why you're doing it, five days off. you really don't want to show them a scenarios and a one-run game, how you're going to face them. this is one way you can actually play games with the opponent. >> joe down. and of the last hope for the cubs to extend this will be miguel montero. >> john: it just cost me a couple homers. it worked out later, same hitter, expecting the same pitch. of course i didn't deliver the same pitch. one a closer knows he's going to
series potentially four times to close this out for his team if he's given the opportunities, those are some of the things you think about, especially with a six-run lead in tonight's game. >> joe: you talk about why are the cubs a favorite. to me, this is a game where come again, the cleveland indians, they can't miss on the night corey kluber pitches. it's like clayton kershaw with the dodgers. joe maddon is in a great jake arrieta and then kyle hendricks to back him up and lester waiting around for game four. so the pitching situation will evolve as of this series. the advantages still with the chicago cubs because of the depth of that rotation pin >> john: absolutely. if you feel like you're the better team, you just have to have more patience. you knew starting on the road in a hostile crowd against a great pitcher, a goal of any team when
we got a split. when one out of two. bare minimum. >> joe: here's a 2-0 pitch. that's a strike. then you've got lester coming back around normal rest in game five, that's where the advantages. i really believe it will reveal itself as this series continues. francona got what he needed here tonight. >> john: terry francona will go to 9-0 as a manager in the world series. that's strike two. the other story line is if this series does go five, six, seven, the usage of the bullpen and the amount that the indians use it, will that come back later in the series? right now, the formula has been they haven't needed it. they've won the seven games and the played eight.
>> joe: the 2112. indians win game one! kluber the winner, 3-1 this postseason. it lester the loser. three hour and a 37 minutes game. >> john: tough to win with 14 strikeouts, credit the indians pitchers what they've done all postseason. >> joe: striking out a lot, 15 times. did the cubs strikeout.
their big ace corey kluber making the start tonight. just one other note with regard to andrew miller who threw 46 pitches, big weapon out of the bullpen for that band, terry francona. the last pitcher to throw 46 or more pitches and then pitch the next day in a postseason? keith faulk with terry francona's 2004 red sox during that epic three games come back against the yankees. it's go down to the field and ken rosenthal print >> ken: thanks, joe. francisco, two outs in the first, you single, you stole second, the start of the two run rally. did you feel you battle jon lester? >> i don't know, i was trying to do my job. conceiving our plan, i was careful of getting two runs. i'm glad he bobbled the ball, he got me the second time.
coming" mark >> be smart, no one to run. know that speaking is behind me. you've got to be smart you've got to know when to run and one not to run, you don't want to be too anxious. people probably know i was good to run but i didn't want to alert more that i'm going to run. i'm just try to play my game and played the way we always been a plain, my teammates helped me a lot. >> k: now over to tom verducci. >> tom: roberto perez, you spent most of your year as a backup catcher hitting .183. game one of the world series, you catch a shutout and hit two home runs, describe what this night means for you. >> it means a lot, manna. i'm enjoying it, i'm just having fun out there. i have confidence right now coming into this game, i was controlling my emotions. i think that was a big part.
much against him, try to get the bat out of the other way. it's been unbelievable might. i can't describe the words right now. >> tom: lets start with corey kluber, he give you six in eighth, 24 called the strikes in those six innings. what's it like to catch him when his ball is moving as much as it was? >> it's fun. he just attacks hitters, we got ahead of hitters today. he's been doing that the whole year, like our ace. every time he steps on amount, expect big things from him. he was awesome. we had a good game plan going on before the game, he was outstanding. beef the next >> tom: game one of the world series has won 12 of the last 13 world series, recent history. give me a player's perspective how important it was for cleveland would game one? >> i think it's huge, home-field
that first win out of the way. we've got to come back tomorrow with the same mentality, they have a good ball club over there. good hitters. we've got to play baseball like we've been doing the whole year and just doing what we do. >> tom: thank you, and congratulations. >> thank you. >> tom: back to you. >> joe: of 2 for 4 with 4 rbis tonight, for roberto perez. cubs had their chances. two out of 15 with runners on, ten final 6-0. kluber over lester let's go to kevin, all your spirits before thanks very much, welcome to the postgame show, where presented by lethal weapon on fox. frank thomas, pete rose, alex rodriguez and i'm kevin burkhardt, we got a lot coming up here, interviews from both clubhouses, will give you that. these guys reaction, it's coming up for you, for now, we'll take a quick break.

he hit 200 this year, he's the mvp in the world series. >> frank: you wonder why cleveland won so many games, kluber lestrade, he didn't mess around. it was amazing to watch his control in this weather tonight. advantage cleveland, he pitched really, really well especially in this cold weather. >> alex: nine strikeouts, three pop-ups of the catcher. he had the their heads and talking to themselves. it's before you talked about that hit ball, that to seem her. i don't think i've seen so many lefties climate like it's coming right at them and all of sudden that the strike. you said they should've moved back of the plate but they never did it. >> pete: 26 coldest rakes in it, that's a lot. >> alex: if you are left-handed hitter, that ball looks like it's coming right at your hip it looks like it's good to shatter your hip. i can see why they get the heck out of the way. >> frank: if you're the
it would be demoralizing if you lose tonight with him on the mound. >> frank: he was a 2014 cy young winner, he has all the goods. put it on full display, he was sharp. every spot on him tonight, he showed the type of pitches that he is. >> alex: >> joe: and done cubs had their best pitcher tonight also. cleveland is one up on them. >> alex: very impressive how we dominated lefties and righties e kluber, he was outstanding. first time since, change of time to do whether tuesday's world series coverage, everything is moved up an hour. at 6:00 pregame show on fs1, pregame moves to fox at 6:30, 7:00 first pitch tomorrow night eastern time. for continuing postgame coverage of the world series, a lot more to do with this crew, tuned to fs1 up for the rest of you, you
