Why are these two teams in the World Series? Pitching!!

Cleveland’s sensational bullpen has accounted for close to half the team’s 71 innings in the postseason – 32 1/3 to be exact – fashioning a 1.67 ERA. ALCS MVP Miller, deployed as a fireman to douse any incipient sparks, has struck out 21 in 11 2/3 innings while allowing five hits and no runs.

The Cubs will counter with a more classic staff, one fronted by a rotation that led the majors with a 2.96 ERA in the regular season and features two strong Cy Young Award candidates in Jon Lester and Kyle Hendricks, along with the most recent NL recipient in Jake Arrieta.
