Jake Arrieta carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, Kyle Schwarber drove in two runs and the Cubs brushed off a shutout to even the World Series with their first Fall Classic win in more than seven
decades, 5-1 over the Cleveland Indians in Game 2.
Schwarber hit an RBI single in the third inning and had another in the Cubs’ three-run fifth – highlighted by Ben Zobrist’s run-scoring triple.
Mike Montgomery replaced Arrieta and worked two scoreless innings before Aroldis Chapman came in and unleashed his 103 mph heat while getting the last four outs in his Series debut.
The teams will have an off day before the series resumes with Game 3 at Wrigley, which will host its first Series game since 1945, when tavern owner Billy Sianis was asked to leave with his pet
goat, Murphy, and a curse was born.
Josh Tomlin will start for the Indians against Chicago’s Kyle Hendricks.
