Indians Re-Create A Babe Ruth Performance From 1918

Last night, Terry Francona's Tribe took a two-games-to-one lead in the World Series with a 1-0 victory. The last time the Cubbies were shutout 1-0 in a World Series game? Some Red Sox pitcher named George Herman 'Babe' Ruth turned the trick in Game One of the 1918 World Series. You can't make this stuff up, folks. The Bambino hurled a complete game shutout that day—although he did go 0-3 at the plate, with two Ks. He got better offensively.
