East Texan Takes the Mound for Game 3 of World Series
Josh Tomlin will be on the mound Friday night (October 28) to hopefully pitch the Cleveland Indians to a 2 games to 1 lead in the World Series. The series is tied 1-1 with the Indians taking game 1, 6-0 and the Chicago Cubs won game 2, 6-1 in Cleveland. The series now moves to Wrigley field for games 3, 4 and 5. Games 6 and 7, if necessary, will be in Cleveland.
Josh Tomlin graduated from Whitehouse and went on to pitch at Texas Tech.
Josh made his major league debut in 2010 when he pitched the Indians to a 4-1 win over the New York Yankees. This year, he went 13-9 with a 4.40 ERA. He's pitched 10 2/3 innings this postseason and only allowed 3 runs.
Good luck Josh, East Texas is rooting for you.
