Tomlin gives up a lot of dingers and will be on a very short leash tomorrow given that Salazar is available in the pen for 50-70 pitches. Between the two, just need one to be on enough to get Indians to the 5th-6th. It is really amazing to how important it is to be leading after four innings in this series.
I pretty much expect both managers to take an all-hands-on-deck approach to game six figuring that both Kluber and Hendricks can go long on Wednesday.
Not going to lie, I don't feel safe at all.
After Game 4, I felt pretty good with the Cubs pitching matchups in 5 & 6. Kluber obviously scares me in 7. I somewhat forgot about Salazar. As I've said previously, he's the type of pitcher the Cubs can get to, but he is an effective long relief guy. Don't really see Lester or Lackey doing that for the Cubs, but Montgomery is real effective in that role (and will have 2 days off).
It feels like there should be a pretty big offensive game by both teams in this series. Game 6 seems like the obvious spot.
