DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Corey Kluber against Jon Lester -- exactly the matchup you'd want in Game 1 of the most anticipated and celebrated World Series in years (71 years, if you're a Cubs fan).
And if experience matters, Lester has an edge. He's won three World Series games in his career -- all with the Red Sox -- and owns two championship rings.
This is new territory for Kluber, but the Indians ace is coming off another 18-win season with the Tribe, matching his 18-9 Cy Young season of two years ago. And while he took the only loss in the ALCS, he only gave up two runs on four hits, pitching on just three days rest.
Kluber vs. Lester. Bring it on!
