World Series Game 2 begins at 7 p.m. on FOX8; pregame show starts at 6:30 p.m.
CLEVELAND — While Game 1 of the World Series went to the Cleveland Indians in the form of a 6-0 blowout, the Chicago Cubs are hoping to even the series and shift momentum back to Wrigley Field.
Tonight’s game, which begins at 7 p.m. on FOX8, will feature one of 2016’s most dominant pitchers in Jake Arrieta, and a hard-throwing righty that many believe is Cleveland’s most talented starter, Trevor Bauer.
The game was initially slated to begin at 8:08 p.m. but was moved to 7:08 p.m. due to anticipated heavy precipitation in Northeast Ohio.
Bauer, who lasted less than one inning in his previous start in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series due to a finger injury, says his finger is healed, ESPN reports.
Cubs starter Arrieta won the National League Cy Young Award in 2015. In two postseason starts, he’s thrown 11 innings, allowed 6 runs and accrued an overall ERA of 4.91.
The pregame show begins at 6:30 p.m. on FOX8.
