World Series: Are Cubs or Indians under most pressure in Game 7?
Wednesday November 2nd, 2016

In the decisive final game of the World Series, Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber and Chicago Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks will be tasked with holding off the opposing team in hopes of earning a championship title. 

Kluber takes the hill at his home field, where he has shut out his opponents this postseason. He has not allowed a run to score across three playoff starts at Progressive Field, with all three of the earned runs charged against him scoring in away ballparks. Kluber has a 0.89 ERA this postseason and Cleveland has lost only one of the games he has started.

Hendricks will counter for the Cubs as they seek to end their 108-year World Series championship drought. In four postseason starts this year, Hendricks has a 1.31 ERA and a 2–2 record. The Cubs lost Hendricks's last start in Game 3 despite his shutting out the Indians for four and 1/3 innings.

Game 7 will begin at 8:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday night.
