CBS Baseball Writers Split on the Winner of the Cubs-Indians Game Six

CLEVELAND – Everyone is on pins and needles at Progressive Field for game six at Progressive Field as the Indians look to take home their first title since 1948 as they take on the Cubs in what could be a magical night in Cleveland.

The folks over at CBS, almost all of which had the Cubs winning the series in six games, gave their take on the game tonight, and it still seems that it’s a perfect split down the middle as to who will win and if there will be a 7th game or not.

Here’s what they have to say.

Game 6 Winner Score Commentary
R.J. Anderson 5-3 Tomlin is good enough and the Indians claim the title.
Mike Axisa 4-3 This one will be a nail-biter. In fact, I’ll say it’s a walk-off win. Why not? We haven’t had a World Series walk-off clincher since Luis Gonzalez‘s bloop in 2001. I’ll give the series-winning hit to Francisco Lindor. What, did you expect someone else?
Jonah Keri 3-2 Josh Tomlin continues his out-of-nowhere October run of glory, Andrew Miller chips in with seven outs of fury and Cody Allen slams the door on the 2016 season.
Dayn Perry 9-7 The two teams combine for six homers.
Bill Reiter 5-2 Kris Bryant is back, Arrieta cruises again and Chicago forces a Game 7.
Matt Snyder 5-2 Hey, we deserve a seven-game series at this point and it will give us a Corey Kluber vs. Kyle Hendricks showdown. Having seen him so recently, the Cubs get to Josh Tomlin early this time with a pair of big homers, one from Kyle Schwarber and one from a back-on-track Kris Bryant.
