MLB: World Series-Chicago Cubs at Cleveland Indians Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago and Cleveland are back in action tonight after the latter took Game 1 in dominant fashion. The weather is cold and rainy, but the tarp is coming off the field. The general feeling is that they will be able to start on time and complete the game, but the conditions are expected to be drizzly throughout.

Postseason games cannot be shortened because of rain, so any portion of the complete nine innings that isn’t played tonight would be picked up tomorrow. The game was moved up from 8 pm ET to 7 pm ET in anticipation of the weather.

As for the game itself, the Cubs send Jake Arrieta to the mound in hopes of evening the series at 1-1. Trevor Bauer returns to the mound for Cleveland after being forced from his last start because his pinky finger was dripping blood like something out of a horror movie.

The game is, like the rest of the series, on FOX at 7:00. Who will win? Let us know in the comments.
