CHICAGO (WOIO) - The Indians fell to the Cubs 3-2 Sunday, forcing a Game 6 at Progressive Field on Tuesday.
Kris Bryant's homer sparked a three-run burst in the fourth inning that gave Jon Lester and the Cubs the lead.
Carl Edwards Jr. relieved Lester to begin the seventh with a 3-2 edge. With a runner on second and one out, Aroldis Chapman was called in.
The hard-throwing closer hadn't pitched in the seventh inning since 2012. Chapman escaped the jam, then shut down the Indians for a save.
Jose Ramirez homered for Cleveland. Losing pitcher Trevor Bauer went four innings.
