The Cubs' 3-2 win on Sunday trimmed the Indians' World Series lead to 3-2 and shifted the Fall Classic back to Cleveland for Game 6 tonight (7:30 p.m. ET air time/8 p.m. game time on FOX).

Cleveland is electric with the Indians one win away from their first World Series title since 1948. But the Cubs, who will start 2015 National League Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta tonight, aren't going to give up without a fight.
