CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Indians are home and resting up for Game 6 of the World Series.
Cleveland fans are really hoping that hometown advantage will help the Tribe bring home a title.
"When your on the road it's you against the world, which is OK -- but the biggest thing of all is when your the home team you hit last. So you get to use your bullpen differently and that's a huge advantage," Terry Francona explained. "Just the fact that you hit last is very big."
The other good thing about coming home, the Indians have only lost once at home during the playoffs.
Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona also said right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall should be available for Game 6 after being stricken with a stomach bug on Sunday.
Chisenhall was sent back to the team hotel before Game 5 at Wrigley Field on Sunday after complaining about not feeling well. Cleveland manager Terry Francona said Monday that Chisenhall was able to make it back to the stadium before the first pitch and could have entered as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning of Sunday night's 3-2 loss if the pitcher's spot had come up.
"In fact he was most likely going to hit in the ninth," said Francona. "He looked a lot better by the end of the night."
