Toronto Blue Jays vs. Cleveland Indians: A Details and Preview of the 2016 World Series

The 2016 baseball season will end with a couple of surprises in the World Series. Both Toronto and Cleveland finished their seasons in second place in their divisions, but have made it to the Fall Classic for the first time in many years. The last time Toronto played in the World Series was 1993, when they won their second consecutive championship. Cleveland has not been to the World Series since 1997, when they lost in seven games to Florida. This will be only the third time since 1903 that both teams made it to the series with 100 or more losses during their careers.

Game 1 will take place on Tuesday night in Cleveland at Progressive Field, and feature two Cy Young candidates on the mound. Corey Kluber of Cleveland will start against J.A. Happ of Toronto. Kluber is an 18-game winner this season who has struck out 245 batters while walking only 38 during the regular season. His earned run average of 3.14 was second among American League pitchers behind Boston’s Rick Porcello (3.15). He is 2-0 this post-season with a 1.89 ERA and has held opponents to a .203 batting average in 19 innings pitched over his three

Blue Jays vs. Indians: A Details and Preview of the 2016 World Series

The 2016 Major League Baseball season is coming to an end, and the World Series will end it. For the first time in years, the Cubs are not involved in the final series, and neither are the Red Sox or Yankees. In fact, only one of these teams has ever won the World Series before.

The Toronto Blue Jays have been one of the best teams in baseball this season, but they’ve had a rough road getting to this point. They were swept by Cleveland in a series earlier this year, and they were down 2-0 to Texas in their division series before rallying to win three straight games on their home turf. They beat Baltimore 3-1 in the ALCS, with two of those wins coming on walk-offs. The Blue Jays haven’t won a postseason series since 1993 when they defeated Philadelphia 4-2.

The Blue Jays enter this series as the favorites because of their high-powered offense that led all of baseball during the regular season with 891 runs scored and 232 home runs hit. The Indians have a better starting rotation with Corey Kluber, Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin, but Toronto’s Marcus Stroman is one of

The Cleveland Indians will face the Toronto Blue Jays in this year’s World Series, and the two teams have been preparing for the big event. The World Series is a best-of-seven playoff that will be played between October 25 and November 2, 2016.

The Indians’ last appearance in the World Series was in 1997, when they won their second consecutive championship title by defeating the Florida Marlins. They will be playing their seventh championship series, including their losing appearances in 1954, 1995 and 1997.

The Blue Jays’ last appearance in the World Series was in 1993, when they won their second consecutive championship title by defeating the Philadelphia Phillies. They will be playing their fifth championship series, including their winning appearances in 1992 and 1993 as well as their losing appearance in 1985.

Both teams have been training hard for months to prepare for this series, which is sure to be one of the most exciting sporting events of the year.

The Toronto Blue Jays have been on a mission since the All-Star break, and that mission was to reach the World Series. Here we are in October and the Jays have lived up to their goal. The Cleveland Indians have shocked many by reaching the World Series—many because people didn’t believe this team could sustain the success it had in June, July, and August.

The Indians’ pitching is unbelievable: 1.77 ERA in nine games this postseason. The Blue Jays’ bats are red hot: 79 runs scored in 11 games this postseason. These two teams will clash starting Tuesday night at Progressive Field in Cleveland, OH.

The Indians have home field advantage in this series thanks to the American League winning the MLB All-Star Game back in July. The Indians will start Corey Kluber in Game 1 and Josh Tomlin in Game 2 as they rely on their bullpen—led by Andrew Miller, Cody Allen, and Bryan Shaw—to win this series for them.

The Blue Jays will counter with Marco Estrada in Game 1 and J.A. Happ in Game 2 as they rely on their offense to carry them through this series (also led by Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, Josh Donaldson).

There was a time, not so long ago, when the Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians felt like they were cursed. The Indians hadn’t won the World Series since 1948, and the Blue Jays hadn’t appeared in the Fall Classic since 1993, when they lost to the Philadelphia Phillies. Fans of both teams had waited decades for their team to return to baseball’s greatest stage. And now it has happened.

The 2016 American League Championship Series was a thrilling seven-game tour de force that ended with one of the greatest comebacks in baseball history. The Blue Jays trailed 3-0 in the eighth inning of Game 5 against the Texas Rangers, but three home runs later (and two more homers from Jose Bautista), they were on their way to winning a second straight series on their opponent’s home field. Cleveland built a 3-1 lead against Boston in the ALCS and didn’t need any late-inning heroics against the Red Sox, who had led all of baseball with 93 wins during the regular season.

The Blue Jays will host Game 1 and 2 on Friday and Saturday before traveling to Cleveland for Game 3 on Monday. Games 4 through 7 will also be played in Cleveland if necessary. Let’s take a closer look at how these two teams stack up against

The Toronto Blue Jays are going to be in their second World Series since 1993 and will have the home-field advantage over the Cleveland Indians.

The teams have never met in the postseason, but they played six times this season, with Cleveland taking four of those games.

After a long and grueling season, the Cubs and Indians will meet in a seven-game series for the championship. Here is what we know about both sides so far:
