CLEVELAND -- The Latest on the World Series (all times local):8:30 p.m.Once again, Indians manager Terry Francona is torn on what to do in left field.The good thing is that Carlos Santana isnt an option.Francona was forced to start Santana, his regular designated hitter, twice in left at Wrigley Field, where Cleveland had to play under National League rules. Santana more than held his own in Games 3 and 5.I was really proud of him, Francona said of Santana, who had only played four innings in left in his career before Game 5. Hes come a long way. Took a lot of work in that four- or five-day span for him to be out there, and I thought it was pretty cool. Ill be glad that we can DH somebody though.Francona is now trying to decide whether to play Coco Crisp or Rajai Davis in left for Game 6 against Chicago right-hander Jake Arrieta. Davis had two hits and stole three bases in Game 5.Francona said hes leaning toward Crisp but wants to discuss it first with bench coach Brad Mills.---8:15 p.m.Cubs manager Joe Maddon anticipates closer Aroldis Chapman will be available for another long outing in Game 6.Chapman threw 42 pitches in Game 5, getting the first eight-out save of his major league career.I dont know that we could do what we did yesterday, necessarily. But Ill talk to him tomorrow, Maddon said Monday. Hes a pretty strong guy. Beyond that I dont think weve overused him to this point. Im just talking about the latter part of the season as well as the playoffs, hes been in pretty much a little dabs, not the lengthy moment like you saw yesterday. Ill check with him tomorrow. Ill definitely listen to what he has to say. Im betting that he would probably think that he would be good for two innings, I would imagine tomorrow.---8:15 p.m.Rookie catcher Willson Contreras is set to start in Game 6, with Jake Arrieta on the mound for the Chicago Cubs.David Ross, a 39-year-old in his final big league season, started Games 1 and 5 along with pitcher Jon Lester. Contreras started Games 2, 3 and 4.Willsons done a great job. He caught Jake well in Cleveland a couple days ago, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.Contreras is hitting .071 (1 for 14) in the Series, and Ross is 1 for 4. Lester could enter a Game 7 in relief.Youd have to make a decision how you want to utilize that if you actually put Jonny in the game, who you want catching Jon in that moment, Maddon said. So theres a lot of little subplots going on.---6:55 p.m.With the Chicago Cubs successfully fighting off elimination by Cleveland, World Series Game 5 attracted its most television viewers in nearly two decades.Chicagos 3-2 win Sunday was watched by 23.6 million on Fox, the network said Monday, attracting a 13.1 rating and 21 share.Kansas Citys Series-clinching, 12-inning victory over the New York Mets in Game 5 last year received a 10.0/17 and 17.2 million viewers. This years Game 5 rating was the highest since Floridas 6-4 win over the New York Yankees in 2003 received a 13.2/21, and the viewership was the most since 24.2 million tuned in for Floridas 8-7 victory over the Indians in 1997.Spanish-language coverage of Game 5 on Fox Deportes drew 342,000 viewers and the digital telecast on Fox Sports Go 136,000, raising the total to 24.1 million.The first five games have averaged an 11.0/19 and 19.3 million viewers, up from an 8.7/16 and 14.7 million last year.---6:40 p.m.The Indians will have a personal piece of their past at Game 6.Eddie Robinson, the last living member from Clevelands 1948 World Series title team, will be at Progressive Field on Tuesday night as the Indians try to win their first championship in 68 years.The 95-year-old Robinson was the starting first baseman on the 48 team, which featured Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller, Larry Doby, who broke the AL color barrier, shortstop/manager Lou Boudreau and pitcher Bob Lemon.Robinson is making the trip from Fort Worth, Texas, to see the Indians try to close out the Chicago Cubs. He batted .300 with six hits in the 48 Series and drove in Clevelands fourth run in Game 6 when the Indians beat the Boston Braves to win the championship.---5:30 p.m.Cleveland Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall should be available for Game 6 after being stricken with a stomach bug on Sunday.Chisenhall was sent back to the team hotel before Game 5 at Wrigley Field on Sunday after complaining about not feeling well. Cleveland manager Terry Francona said Monday that Chisenhall was able to make it back to the stadium before the first pitch and could have entered as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning of Sunday nights 3-2 loss if the pitchers spot had come up.Chisenhall is just 1 for 13 in the Series.---2:30 p.m.Chicago Cubs fans hopes that the team can still win it all are still very much alive.Many are planning trips to Cleveland for Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday after the Cubs survived elimination Sunday night against the Indians.A StubHub spokesman said Monday that about 27 percent of the tickets being sold on the site for Tuesday went to credit cards associated with Illinois Zip codes.Barry Rosenthal was at Sunday nights 3-2 win over Cleveland.

. - Levi Browns tenure at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers is over before it even began.Simon Mignolet insists Jurgen Klopps Liverpool are still a work in progress ahead of their Saturday Night Football clash against Tottenham. Klopp, who moved to Anfield in October, started his Liverpool career with a 0-0 draw with Spurs and despite some inconsistent performances along the way, there have been plenty of positives for the German as he prepares for his 39th game in charge of the Reds.The former Borussia Dortmund boss has already led his side to a Wembley final this season and master-minded his sides progress to the Europa League quarter-finals, knocking out Manchester United on their way to a tie against his old club. Liverpool, who sit seven points behind fourth, are also still in the hunt for a Champions League place but Mignolet, speaking in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, thinks there is still room for improvement.Away from home at Tottenham I think we played a good first game under Klopp, Mignolet said. The gaffer came in and I think you saw the changes he made immediately as we got a good result away from home.Hes tried to change many things since hes come in. It wasnt easy at the beginning because we had so many games. When you play a lot its difficult to change things because you are constantly recovering and then going back into the next game, he added. Klopp takes charge of his 39th match as Liverpool boss against Tottenham Over the time hes been here everybody has seen what hes tried to change in different aspects of our game, both in attack and defence and with the mentality of the players.Its still a work in progress and we are still trying to do that on a daily basis together with him.Klopp is well known for his exuberant touchline celebrations and Mignolet thinks the passion the German shows on the sidelines is beginning to rub off on the Liverpool players. Mignolet thinks Klopps positive attitude is starting to rub off on the players It was the initial change when he arrived, Mignolet said. He wanted us to be positive and he wanted us to bbe on the front foot.ddddddddddddAlso, his enthusiasm and his character was very positive towards the players. You felt he was behind all the players and you could see it in the games.Hes playing his own game on the sidelines and thats what you want as a player because you feel hes there behind you and that only makes it easier to play as a player on the pitch. Mignolet signed a new long-term deal at Liverpool in January Liverpool showed their faith in Mignolet by handing him a new five-year deal in January, but things have not gone quite as well for his Belgium team-mate Christian Benteke, who is ruled out of the clash with Tottenham through injury.Benteke has scored just seven goals in 24 appearances for the Reds since his big-money move from Aston Villa, but Mignolet has thrown his support behind the 25-year-old, claiming he still has plenty to offer at Anfield. Mignolet has backed Christian Benteke to come good at Liverpool When you are a striker you want to score goals, Mignolet said. You want to play every single game but weve got such a big squad and everybody is fighting for a place in the starting 11.It isnt always easy to play every game but Christians got that mentality to keep his head down and focus on the next game. He will always be ready when called upon. Hes had a few problems with a couple of injuries this year as well but everybody knows what his abilities and qualities are and you know he can help you out at both ends of the pitch.Hes shown that in the past. He can score very important goals but he can also hold the ball up for us which is good to give the defence a breather. We know what he can do and hell always work hard to help us out.Watch the full Simon Mignolet interview on Soccer Saturday from 12pm.
