Tarp still on field. Rain has subsided, cold has not as we prepare for a chilly uncomfortable Game # 2 of the World Series...Trevor Bauer vs Jake Arietta.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Andrew Miller threw 46 pitches in relief on Tuesday. The last pitcher to throw 45 or more pitches and then pitch the next day in the postseason was Keith Foulke in 2004, according to Elias Sports Bureau research. He threw 50 pitches in Game 4 of the ALCS and 22 pitches in Game 5. Indians manager Terry Francona was Foulke's manager on the Red Sox in 2004.

The Indians wouldnt mind if weather postponed a game in WS, bc they'd like to use Andrew Miller in every game. 3 games in 3 days in Chi big.

Cold and dreary day in Cleveland. First pitch moved up to 7:08 ET with heavy rain expected later; weather already threatening to cancel batting practice.

Jorge Soler starts in RF and Jason Heyward and his 184m contract sits for the third straight game and second against RHH. Cubs won 103 regular season games with Heyward hitting .230 with 7 home runs. They won division series with him hitting .083. They won LCS with him .063. Can't they win WS with him batting .000. Gold Glove right fielder, shut down arm. Run prevention matters.

Nearly eight hours before first pitch of Game 2, the Indians ground crew is putting down the tarp. According to The Weather Channel, rain could start rolling into Cleveland around 1 p.m. ET. Rain and wind could be an issue tonight, one of the reasons the start time was moved up an hour.
