CLEVELAND, OH (WCMH/AP)– The Cleveland Police have put an APB out for the Cubs offense after the Indians blanked Chicago 6-0 in game one of the World Series.
“Missing persons report filed for Cubs offense,” the Cleveland Police posted on its Twitter account last night after the Indians win.
Corey Kluber and the Cleveland Indians are off to a pitch-perfect start in the World Series.
The Chicago Cubs, meanwhile, fell completely flat in their first appearance since 1945.
Kluber dominated into the seventh inning, Roberto Perez had four RBIs with a pair of home runs and the Indians beat the Cubs 6-0 in Tuesday night’s opener of a highly anticipated matchup between the teams with baseball’s longest championship droughts.
“It’s almost like you have that extra level of intensity,” said Kluber, who became the first Series pitcher to strike out eight batters in the first three innings.
AL Championship Series MVP Andrew Miller escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the seventh and stranded runners at the corners the eighth, preserving a three-run lead and delighting the sellout crowd of 38,091 in Cleveland’s first-ever Series home opener.
