The World Series is even at 1-1 after the Indians lost to the Chicago Cubs 5-1 Wednesday night at Progressive Field. WKSU’s Amanda Rabinowitz talked to commentator Terry Pluto looking ahead to Game 3 Friday.

Terry Pluto says the Cubs did to the Indians on Wednesday what the Indians have done to other teams they've faced in the postseason: Pitch well and play good offense. 

"It was an ugly game. It's one of those games where you felt like the score was worse than 5-1."

The Indians lead the Chicago Cubs in the World Series after winning last night at Progressive Field, 6-0. Heading in to Game 2 tonight, WKSU’s Amanda Rabinowitz reports the team is embracing the motto “Cleveland against the world.”

Cleveland is getting ready for the Indians’ first World Series run in 19 years. The first game will be at Progressive Field in Tuesday. WKSU’s Kevin Niedermier reports on the sports frenzy in Northeast Ohio. 

The World Series tickets went fast, too fast for Robert Kesizer of Wadsworth who got in line about a half hour before they went on sale at Progressive Field.

The Cleveland Indians are in the World Series for the first time in 19 years. The Indians won their first pennant since 1997, blanking Toronto 3-0 yesterday in Game 5 of the AL Championship Series. 

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the Indians' playoff run has been the most unexpected.

"This Indians team is the most fun, unlikely, unpretentious group I have seen to win and go to a World Series, and I go all the way back to all those teams in the '90's. I had more fun watching these guys than any of those."

The Indians lost 5-1 yesterday to the Toronto Blue Jays in the AL Championship Series. Cleveland still leads the series 3-1 and will try again today to win to earn their first World Series trip since 1997.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says they weren't hitting the ball well and Toronto starting hitting. 


"It's very easy to come up with a gloom and doom scenario," Pluto says. "We are the masters of disaster when it comes to looking at our teams and thinking about how things can fall apart."
