On Sunday we predicted that the Chicago Cubs would stave off elimination with a 4-1 win over the Cleveland Indians behind Jon Lester. Indeed, the Cubs did win by 3-2 score, pushing the series back to Cleveland for Game Six. This brings our post-season 2016 prediction record to 19-11.
Tonight's game features Jake Arrieta against Josh Tomlin. This should be another pitcher's duel, but I think the Indians win this one due to home field advantage and home runs from Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis. Cleveland wins 5-3 and takes home the championship.
