10:39 p.m. ET: World Series gets seriously chilly
Fans throughout Progressive Field were forced to bundle up and huddle together as the first-pitch temperature was a chilly 43 degrees. Game 2 tied for the second-coldest World Series game of the Wild Card Era, just slightly warmer than the 35-degree Game 4 of the 1997 World Series between the Marlins and Indians, also in Cleveland.

10:03 p.m. ET: Indians end Arrieta's no-hit bid, get on board
Arrieta, who has two regular-season no-hitters to his name, didn't allow a hit in Game 2 until Jason Kipnis' double with one out in the sixth inning. The hit snapped an 0-for-16 slump for Kipnis, who moved to third on a groundout and scored Cleveland's first run on Arrieta's wild pitch. When Mike Napoli singled, Cubs manager Joe Maddon lifted Arrieta at the 98-pitch mark.
