The rain is starting to pick up, though if it gets much colder it'll be snow. Still, good thing MLB bumped up the start time.

Montgomery has been an unsung hero for Cubs staff. His 11 postseason innings are 3 more than Chapman and more than twice any other reliever.

Cubs starter Jake Arrieta had a no-hit bid through 5 1/3 innings for the Cubs in Game 2 of the World Series. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, that's the longest no-hit bid in a World Series game since Jerry Koosman had one for 6 IP for the 1969 Mets against the Orioles.

Jake Arrieta faced 22 hitters in this game and 10 of them were in hitters' counts. But the bottom line: He leaves with Cubs leading 5-1.

Ben Fawkes ESPN Staff Writer

Jason Kipnis doubles to center field to break up Jake Arrieta's no-hitter with one out in the sixth.

For those who are asking (or just wondering): No, this is not the first time two World Series teams have worn solid-colored alternate jerseys in the same game — not even close, in fact. In Game 1 of the 1979 Series, the Pirates wore black and the Orioles wore orange. Ah, the '70s.

Kyle Schwarber is on base again as he walked in the sixth inning reaching for the third time tonight. He has three hits and two walks in his first two games since April 7.

Dan Mullen 

File this under things we didn't expect to see a few weeks ago: Danny Salazar is pitching to Kyle Schwarber in Game 2 of the World Series.

Jake Arrieta retired Coco Crisp, Tyler Naquin and Roberto Perez in order to keep his no-hitter intact through the fifth inning. Arrieta has thrown 79 pitches through five. He joins the Mets' Noah Syndergaard as the second pitcher to take a no-hitter into the sixth inning this postseason.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Danny Salazar entering the postseason for first time. He last pitched Sept. 9.
