World Series Game 4 [BCochran]
— Open Blogger

world series .jpg
Game 3 was one hell of a game. A pitcher's duel that included multiple pitchers from both teams and clutch defense in big spots.

Tomlin surprised a lot of people, including me, with how well he pitched. He threw 4 solid innings before getting into a bit of trouble in the 5th and Terry Francona wasted no time in going to the ALCS MVP Miller in relief. I think Tomlin was given an emotional boost by having the opportunity to pitch in front of his father who is seriously ill.

Hendricks gave up no runs, but was constantly dealing with runners on base. He managed to scatter 6 hits and 2 walks without giving up any runs in 4 1/3 innings. The Cubs' bullpen was stellar except for the 1 run in the 7th. That 1 run proved to be all that was necessary.

So that 1 run. With runners 1st and 3rd in the 7th, pitcher Andrew Miller was due up for the Indians. Francona had a decision to make. Leave his ace reliever in to continue to hold the Cubs or pinch hit for him and attempt to finally push some runs across. Francona decided to pinch hit veteran Coco Crisp for Miller. And, of course, Francona's decision paid off. Crisp stroked a single to right, scoring Martinez.

Chicago blew far too many chances for runs. On the night they were 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position and left a total of 7 men on base. You just can't do that against a bullpen like Cleveland. If they give you the opportunity, you have to make the most of it.

Two perfect examples. Bottom of 7, Soler slices one that looks foul down the right field line, but the wind brings it back and Chisenhall misplays it in the right field corner. The ball rattles around in corner and Soler ends up with a 2 out triple. And then Baez grounds out. Inning over. The other example came in the bottom of the 9th. Rizzo led off with a single. Two outs later, Heyward reaches 1st and Rizzo gets to 3rd on a ground ball booted by Indians' 1B Napoli. Heyward then steals 2nd to put the winning run in scoring position. Baez once again at the plate with 2 outs and runners in scoring position. Strikeout. Baez. Game over.

Game 4 is vitally important to the Cubs. Going down 3-1 would be a nightmare. They have a tall task before them because tonight's starter for the Indians is Kluber. Kluber has been absurdly good this postseason. The man with a 0.74 ERA in the postseason will be pitching on 3 days rest. The Cubs have got to get consistent with their offense and avoid yet another shutout. They've been shutout twice in the first 3 games. Kluber is good, but not unhittable. The Cubs simply have to find away to bust up the Francona model of Kluber for 5, Miller for 2, likely Shaw for the 8th, and then Allen slamming the door in the 9th. That model has been devastating this postseason.

The Cubs are asking veteran righty John Lackey to hold the line. He's yet to earn a decision this postseason, but the Cubs won both games he started. He's well used to postseason pressure as he's thrown 135 1/3 postseason innings in his career. The 38 year old needs to be on his A game tonight to match Kluber and keep the Cubs in this thing.

My apologies to grammie winger and all the Cubs fans out there, but I think Kluber continues his amazing postseason. I think the Indians take it tonight.

As always, enjoy the post, enjoy the game.

If you're looking for politics, it's not here. There's a thread below and I'm sure one soon to be above. Let us baseball junkies do our thing in peace if you please.

Mega thanks to Ace and MisHum for the post.

13 Kluber's two-seamer has been moving lineups off the plate and fooling guys all season. Three days' rest is going to effect him and the Cubs' lineup is too good to be shut-out tonight. The Post Season is always a different animal.

21 Chicago must be praying that Kluber is tired and will do what Kershaw did in the playoffs. Kershaw seemed to shake off the postseason curse he's had in past years, but after beating the Nats and then the Cubs in his first outing against them, he just couldn't repeat magic. Of course, Kershaw was coming back after an injury as well.

26 Joe Buck has his job because of daddy, not talent.

Posted by: Tinfoilbaby at October 29, 2016 02:19 PM (6Ll1u)

27 Here's what I've gathered, because I don't listen to T.V. announcers often. Even when they are audibly "on", I still don't "listen" to what they're saying. #1. You can tell Joe Buck never played the game. He asks inane questions and makes nonsensical statements. #2. He doesn't allow for "pregnant pauses", so as to let the crack of the bat and roar of the crowd speak for itself. He is a jabber-box. #3.He roots for his own "story lines" and repeats them throughout the game. (common amongst play-by-play and color commentators.) #4. He speaks mostly in monotone.

28 You've had plenty of championships with the Hawks, bulls, and didn't the Sox win a couple. Posted by: dnice at October 29, 2016 07:10 PM (oO6GC) There are Cubs fans and Sox fans and never the twain shall meet, anymore than you can console a Mets fan by pointing out all the Yankee WS wins. In fact, that will make a Mets fan feel worse. My sister works at a university with a lot of Illinois students. The Sox fans are not happy at all.

34 If Kluber doesn't hit 95/96mph after the third inning? He's not in trouble, but he won't be able to miss nine bats on third strikes through six innings. He'll become a ground ball pitcher with that two-seamer, curve and change. Cleveland merely has "surprising" offense from various players all season, so Lester can be as effective as Hendricks was last night and still win easily. I won't make a score prediction because I'm always wrong. Every single time.

39 As a Cleveland fan, I'm worried about the entire Cubs lineup. Mostly the pesky Ben Zobrist. He's been on fire with the contact and I've been a fan of his plate-approach since he was in Tampa Bay. ...Dude is the best hitter in either lineup.

To paraphrase the paste-eater, winning the WS after a 100+ years drought is a big fucking deal.

41 "Sounds like the Cubs need to make Kluber throw a lot of pitches." -Posted by: Meremortal, Bigly Matters... at October 29, 2016 07:35 PM (3myMJ) Ideally, yes. That's easier said than done. He throws strikes. He's "One of Those Guys". Here's the catch... The Indians have Danny Salazar, (SP) in reserve and a couple of other long-relief options. There's a reason why the Indians remind people of the Royals. The bullpen is deep and efficient.

91 ya gotta applaud anybody who throws a no-hitter. Of course, it's not just the pitcher and catcher. I've never seen a no hitter where the pitcher didn't have excellent defenders behind him.

Posted by: OregonMuse, deplorable since 2004 at October 29, 2016 08:12 PM (wXDkT) AtC told me a great story earlier. They're doing watch parties at the stadium in Cleveland. A bunch of fans got together and asked management if they could mute the Fox broadcast audio and pipe in the local radio guys. "No. MLB rules won't allow it." Fan response? "Ok, tell us how much the fine is and we'll start a go fund me to pay it." Then a bunch of Chicago fans got involved with "Yeah, we'd give to that." Moral of the story: Everybody hates Joe Buck.

The reply was Can't. MLB rules. The reply to that was well what's the fine, we'll start a Go Fund Me and a bunch of Cubs fans jumped in with we'll donate to that. Finally, something that can bring Indians fans and Cubs fans together. The suckitude of Joe Buck. Thanks to the miracles of Sirius XM and the pause button on the dvr, I can pause the game and then sync it up to the Sirius feed of the Indians radio broadcast and never have to listen to Joe Buck.

108 Lackey's slider against Lindor was an excellent pitch to end the inning. As far as "Batter's Eye" goes, Lindor and Santana are the toughest to fool. Fowler and Rizzo are comparable for Chicago.

191 I have a long-standing, healthy and fully-reasoned dislike for ARod. Came by it honestly, the Mariners had ARod back when people were impressed with him and held out hope for his talent. Let's just say that nothing that he did with his career after leaving Seattle surprised any Mariner fan one bit. We just knew it earlier than everybody else. So it floors me to have to admit that ARod is GREAT as a baseball commentator. I heard him with Fox last year for the first time and couldn't believe my ears. Informative, explained things so that anybody could understand, self-deprecating, and funny! He's amazing. Good for him.

194 I'll feel happy for the winners and quite sad for the fans of the losing team, because they're both long suffering bunches and I know what it feels like. It's not like being a Yankees fan. The Yankees might have a bad stretch but their fans know damn well they'll be back in contention at some point. Obviously, I've had better luck with my football team, but I remembered that long crappy stretch the Pack had in the 70s and 80s too well to get too cocky when they got good again.

1972 WS. 3-2 count on Johnny Bench. Dick Williams comes out to talk to Rollie Fingers. Gene Tenace stands up and motions for the outside pitch to walk him, then dives back behind the plate as Fingers throws strike three right by him. Bench said it was the most embarrassing play of his career.

Didn't everybody bat through HS, college careers, and the minors? I have known of more than a couple of AL pitchers who were power-hitters in college and still take batting practice a few times per month to keep the muscle memory. An AL pitcher is not necessarily a 'gimme'.

The 'moneyline' M/L is just a straight up bet: Who will win the game?

The "+" numbers mean they are the underdog - if it is +115, then a $10 bet wins you $11.50.

The "-" numbers (say -130), means a bet of $13 wins you $10.

There was also a "-1.5" runs for one of the teams this game (I actually forgot who was the favorite tonight! I might be repressing it, so it's probably Cleveland.) That's the 'line' that is similar to the majority of football betting.

756 Even if the Cubs lose this series, they made it back for the first time in 70 years and have great young talent, they can be back next year. Just ask Kansas City

757 A long single for Russell, as Guyer makes a nice play to hold the Cubs hitter to a single base.

770 Indians in command. But you still have to win that 4th one. and that's the toughest one to get.

776 L'Elle, he's right though. The Royals seemed like the Team of Destiny in 2014- until theGiants beat them. But they took it the next year.

792 I do, Ma'am. Even when my team isn't in the Post Season. I completely, totally, exactly understand that sentiment. I yearn for April. I hoist upon my back the jokes about posting "Pitchers and Catchers reporting". I carry the burden with aplomb.

I think I have shared before how I didn't know fag was a bad word, so I have to be very careful to not say it. I thought it just meant sorta prissy. I can hear my grandma now (she also didn't realize it was not a nice thing to say) "He's a nice boy, just a little faggoty is all"

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at October 29, 2016 06:47 PM (znkWW)

797 *HAH!* *High-Five* That was one of the first "controversial" things I said when I was "Meeking My Way" into The Horde. By May, I couldn't take it anymore. "You're Americans?!?", I blared. I thought I was in love with Vendette after she answered me. I knew I was in love with Vendette after she posted links that even I didn't have. --"Wait until the Post-Season", others said. I almost quit this site after those tepid responses. I Bleed Baseball. Not just Cleveland Indians, not just American League... ...baseball. ...period.

804 In 1935, the Cubs lost when Stan Hack tripled to lead off the 9th, with a tie score. Strikeout - Ground out - Fly to Left. I guess triples don't work for the Cubs.
