The World Series gets underway Tuesday night at Progressive Field, as the Cleveland Indians play host to the Chicago Cubs.

Either way, there’s a drought that’s coming to end after this series. The Indians haven’t been crowned as baseball’s champions since 1949, while the Cubs’ historic drought, of course, extends back to 1908.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Tuesday’s crucial Game 1 matchup.

Pitching Matchup

The Indians will send All-Star Corey Kluber to the bump. After another electric season, the 2014 Cy Young has been nearly unhittable in his first career postseason, going 2-1 with a 0.98 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 18.1 innings over three starts against the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays.

Kluber’s lone career start against the Cubs came last year, when he struck out 11 over 7.2 innings, giving up four hits, zero walks and one earned run.

Chicago will counter with veteran Jon Lester, who is certainly no stranger to this spotlight, as he owns two World Series rings and will be making his 18th career postseason start. Like Kluber, Lester has been lights out during the 2016 playoffs, compiling a 0.86 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and a 2-0 record in three starts.

Game 1 will be anyone’s contest with two aces on the mound, although the odds favor the road team to take an early series lead.
