The Cubs play Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night in Cleveland. Terry Francona made it official Sunday by announcing Corey Kluber as the Indians’ Game 1 starter. Joe Maddon will announce Monday the Cubs’ World Series rotation. Maddon is expected to have Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta pitch the first two games in Cleveland. Kyle Hendricks and John Lackey would get the ball in games three and four at Wrigley.
