Cubs Win Game 2; Lose Schwarber at Wrigley
The World Series' second act started an hour early to beat a rain forecast, which gave the Fuzzies' Jake Arietta more than enough time to shine.
And he got all the offense he needed from the Chicago Cubs' post-season superhero:
Kyle Schwarber's accelerated rehab after what was thought to be season-ending knee surgery has thus already paid dividends.
Odds of more dramatics will be diminished for the next three games at Wrigley. Dude's knee hasn't been medically cleared for him to play defense.
Frankly, having seen Schwarber play defense, if it wasn't for his bat, he wouldn't be cleared at all.
Joe Maddon's gonna have to pick his moment to use Schwarber as a pinch-hitter, so on more than one front, the Cubs will be patient.
