The 2016 World Series is tied thanks to Jake Arrieta and the middle of the Cubs lineup. Cleveland’s starting pitching, outside of Game 1 starter Corey Kluber, has not been particularly strong this postseason, and it bit them last night.

As teams compete for playoff stops in these final weeks, baseball lost an icon who was a postseason fixture throughout his long career.
