Josh Tomlin overachieved in game 3 of these series when he was on the field for 5 innings with no runs.
His pitches scare the hitters with a speed of 90 mph. Tomlin likes to mix his curveballs with cutters and that variety of throws delivered him the win in the third game of the World Series.
Arrieta, on the other side, is one of the best pitchers in the postseason. For example, he got the W for the Cubs in game 2 at Cleveland. His task will be much tougher tonight because he is going to face a squad familiar with his throws. He threw just 55 strikes out of his 98 attempts and he still has an issue with his fastballs which are no good in the postseason, although he likes to use them a lot. If Arrieta continues to struggle, we may see the bullpen once again early in the game.
I believe Cleveland won’t miss the chance to clinch the World Series tonight with Josh Tomlin being just good enough for no runs until the fifth inning. Then, it will be a battle between both bullpens which the Indians will have an advantage at.
