Jon Lester allowed three earned runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Cubs dropped Game 1 of the World Series to the Indians on Tuesday.
Lester recorded the first two outs in the bottom of the first inning with relative ease, but Francisco Lindor singled up the middle, Mike Napoli and Carlos Santana drew back-to-back walks, and then Jose Ramirez put a slow-roller down the first base line that plated Lindor for the game's first run and kept the bases juiced. Hit-by-pitch specialist Brandon Guyer promptly did his thing, taking an inside pitch off the leg to make it 2-0. Indians catcher Roberto Perez added to the lead with a solo shot against Lester in the bottom of the fourth -- the first of two World Series Game 1 homers for the defensive-minded catcher. Lester is lined up to pitch next in Game 5. Oct 25 - 11:50 PM
