WS Game 3: Cleveland wins pitcher’s duel, 1-0. Goes up 2 games to 1.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

The Cleveland Indians spoiled the first WS game at Wrigley Field in over 71 years by winning a pitcher’s duel, 1-0, on Friday night.

The win in Game 3 of the Series puts Cleveland up 2 games to 1.

PH Coco Crisp’s RBI single in the seventh was the only run of the game. Cleveland had wasted some scoring opportunities earlier.

The game ended when Cody Allen struck out Javier Baez with the tying run on third and the winning run on second.

Andrew Miller got the win.

I don’t recall when a possible WS winner would have been shutout so often in their losses. After all, both Indians’ wins in this series are by shutout, and both Dodgers’ wins over the Cubs in the NLCS were by shutout.
