David Ross sacrificed his body to get the Cubs out of trouble in the 1st inning of WS Game 1
The first inning of the Cubs' first World Series game in 71 years got off to a less-than-ideal start for Cubs starting pitcher
Fortunately for Lester, his personal catcher,
Thanks to Ross' Herculean effort, the side was retired and the immediate threat was abated. As if that weren't enough, he was able to remain in the game and proceeded to get a single in his first at-bat in the top of the third inning.
Unfortunately for Ross, the Cubs' offense fell short in their attempts to overcome the early deficit and they lost the game, 6-0. Tune in tonight (7 p.m. ET game time on FOX, 6 p.m. ET pregame show on FS1) to see if the Cubs can even up the series at one game apiece.
