CHICAGO -- For the first time in 71 years, the World Series returns to Wrigley Field Friday night.

Game 3 of the Cubs-Indians series starts at 7 p.m. Starting pitchers are Kyle Hendricks and the Indians' Josh Tomlin.

Kyle Schwarber will come off the bench only as a pinch hitter, since team doctors did not clear him to play the field.

Schwarber has three hits and two RBIs since coming back from his knee injury for the series.

It's going to be an exciting weekend in Wrigleyville, but that will come with some headaches for the people who live there.

Street closures at Wrigley go into effect three hours before the game, so at about 4 p.m. It basically covers the section around Wrigley Feld between Grace and Newport to the north and south, and between Racine and Wilson to the west and east.
