CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Chicago Cubs wasted little time getting to Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin in Game 6 and Tito wasted even less time taking him out.
Chicago touched Tomlin for three runs in the first, all with two outs. Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant took a 0-2 pitch from Josh Tomlin and sent it 433 feet into the seats in left field to put Chicago up 1-0 in the top of the first. Bryant also homered in Game 5 in Chicago on Sunday night to help the Cubs stave off elimination.
Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist followed with singles and came home on Addison Russell's two-run double to right-center. The ball fell after Cleveland centerfielder Tyler Naquin and right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall seemed to miscommunicate on who should make the play.
