Cubs-Indians face off tonight in Game 1 of World Series

CLEVELAND — The World Series is here, as the Chicago Cubs will try to end their 108 year championship drought.

It will be Cubs pitcher Jon Lester against the Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber in Game 1 of the World Series tonight in Cleveland.

Lester is 2-0 in three starts during this postseason, with wins over the Giants and Dodgers in the NL playoffs. Kluber has made three postseason starts for the Indians this year, going 2-1 with a 0.98 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 18 1/3 innings.

The Cubs were out at Progressive Field for the first time Monday.

Since they're an American League ballpark, they'll have the designated hitter.  Cubs' Kyle Schwarber, who blew out his knee at the beginning of this season, is officially on the roster.

Game time is at 7:08 p.m. tonight.
