Jake Arrieta's kids have hotel Halloween in Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) Jake Arrieta wouldn't let a road trip and one of the biggest starts of his life stop him from going trick-or-treating with his family this Halloween.

The Chicago Cubs pitcher's wife, Brittany, shared Instagram photos of their two small children dressed up in their costumes a day before Tuesday's Game 6 of the World Series in Cleveland. She captioned the pictures, ''Hotel trick or treating (equals) my kind of Halloween.''

Cooper Arrieta went as Spider-man, while his sister, Palmer, was a princess. The hotel Halloween experience seems to have been a successful one. Both kids hold lollipops in one of the photos.

Arrieta is the Cubs' scheduled starter in Game 6. The Cubs need to beat the Indians to force a deciding Game 7 on Wednesday.
