CHICAGO -- When Josh Tomlins night was done and he made the walk to Clevelands dugout, his eyes scanned the Wrigley Field crowd searching for his dad.Jerry Tomlin was there -- at the World Series -- just like they both had dreamed.With his dad watching from a wheelchair, Tomlin pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings Friday night as the Indians spoiled a game Chicago fans had waited 71 years to see by blanking the Cubs 1-0 in Game 3 to take a 2-1 lead in the Series.On a historic night in one of baseballs grandest ballparks, the Tomlins story was as sweet as it gets.Jerry Tomlin nearly died two months ago from a circulatory malformation that has left him paralyzed from the chest down. He spent two months in the Baylor Rehab Institute in Dallas before being released on Joshs birthday, which happened to be the day the Indians clinched the AL Pennant.And although he cant walk, and faces a daunting future, Jerry wasnt going to miss seeing Josh pitch in the Series.He made it all right, and as he sat in Section 122 swallowed by an ocean of Cubs fans, the elder Tomlin couldnt stop smiling.Its hard to put into words, he said about 30 minutes before Josh threw his first pitch. I didnt know what I was going to say when I got here and I still dont. The way everything planned out and the way people helped me to get here, man, its definitely a dream come true.There was no way I was going to miss this.Tomlin was accompanied by his wife, Elena, who stood in the aisle as game time approached.We both have butterflies, she said. This is a day (Josh) has been waiting for since he was 4 years old. Hes been playing baseball his whole life. What more can you ask for than when your kid gets to live his dream?Tomlin came through once again for the Indians, holding the Cubs without a run on two hits before he was lifted by manager Terry Francona, who gave him a hug before taking the ball.The Indians entered the postseason down two starters as both Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar were injured in September, and then when Trevor Bauer cut his pinkie open while repairing one of his drones, Clevelands chances to go very deep in the postseason seemed remote at best.But Tomlin has delivered, entering Fridays game with a 2-0 record and 2.53 ERA.Hes been a rock, just like his dad always has been for him.Jerry Tomlin coached Josh until he was in high school and the 31-year-old, who is the longest tenured player on Clevelands roster, said he has friends who tell him to this day that his dad was the best coach they ever played for.Tomlin knew nothing would stop his dad, who fell ill at work in August and initially thought he was having stomach problems. However, doctors were examining him when he lost all the feeling in his lower body from a condition that affects blood vessels on his spine. Surgery saved his life, and Josh left the Indians to be with his dad following the operation.As his dad recovered, Josh kept pitching but his mind was never far from thinking about family.Hes called me a couple times. Never complaining, Jerry said. I told him just go back to work and do what you do. Quit worrying about your dad and go get `em.Josh did just that. Anthony DeSclafani Jersey .
