CHICAGO (AP) — Wrigley Field is hosting a World Series game for the first time in 71 years tonight when the Cubs play Cleveland.

And it could be a windy time in The Windy City. Gusts of up to 40 mph are forecast which could push fly balls to left field into the bleachers.

Major League ERA leader Kyle Hendricks gets the start on the mound for Chicago, while Josh Tomlin goes for Cleveland.

To get around the loss of not having a designated hitter, the Indians plan on using Carlos Santana in left field with Mike Napoli at first base.

The Cubs won't have the bat of Kyle Schwarber in the lineup as he wasn't medically cleared to play in the field. If the series goes back to Cleveland for Games 6 and 7 he would resume his duties as DH.

The series is tied at 1 game each.

The game is on FOX with coverage starting at 8:00pm.  FOX 17 will provide a shortened live newscast at 10:00pm on the FOX 17 Facebook page.  Also, FOX 17's Doug Reardon is in Chicago and will provide live reports during newscasts all weekend.  Game 4 is Saturday night and Game 5 is Sunday night.
