Indians vs. Cubs: Game 5 Time, TV Info, Live Stream and More

The 112th edition of the World Series will see its last game played at Wrigley Field and possibly the last game of the series on Sunday night after the Cleveland Indians defeated the Chicago Cubs 7-2 in Game 4 on Saturday.

With the Indians one win away from their first World Series title since 1948, here is a look at the Game 5 schedule:

The Cubs are expected to roll out Jon Lester for Game 5, and the Indians will start Trevor Bauer. But both of these pitchers have been touched up a bit during this World Series.

After Lester shut down the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, he faced off against Corey Kluber, who pitched a gem in Game 1.

While Kluber struck out eight Cubs in the first three innings, Lester allowed three runs in the first four as Chicago was shut out, 6-0:

The following night would see the inconsistent Cubs offense come alive against Bauer, grabbing two runs off him in 3.2 innings before he was pulled for Zach McAllister, who gave up two more earned runs:

But Chicago's bats have gone silent over the last two games. They've combined for just two runs in the past 18 innings, as Cleveland's pitching has been just about unhittable

Cleveland's pitching staff has been headlined by reliever Andrew Miller, via Fox Sports: MLB:

If the Cubs do find a way to come back, it will add on to a historic World Series win, via ESPN:

Given the way the Indians are playing, though, it looks like an insurmountable challenge at the moment. 

The Indians have scored eight runs in their past two games and benefited from their dominant pitching. Now, they have three chances to win just one more game.
