The closest the Cubs came to scoring was in the seventh inning, after the previously unshakable Andrew Miller replaced Kluber. For the first time, Miller struggled, and quickly let the Cubs load the bases up with no outs. He quickly popped Willson Contreras out to center, then struck out Addison Russell. Veteran catcher David Ross held out for a while, until Miller turned him into jelly.


The Cubs at least did see Kyle Schwarber get a hit and a walk in his first game since early April. He became the first position player to go hitless in the regular season, then get a hit in the World Series. The Cubs could use his power, and a whole lot more, if they want to defeat Drone Boy Trevor Bauer tomorrow.
