Bauer had a few more words about that catch afterward. "You see the resolve, and they never get down". "At that point, it's a very close game". Bruce drove in three runs and picked up two of the offense's five hits in a game when several scoring opportunities were squandered.
The Indians have decided not to throw Cy Young candidate Corey Kluber into Game 1, and that has caused some controversy.
Poor outfield defense really cost the Indians in the World Serieslast season, but that doesn't look like a concern in 2017.
The series stays in Cleveland for Game 2, with the first pitch scheduled for 5 p.m. ET Friday evening. Francona managed every game as if it was his last. "I felt like when the moment arose, he attacked it". His poise was tremendous.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi pointed back to that curveball. I know his knees hurt at times and they're a little creaky, but, no, he's a really good athlete and he can manipulate the ball. "You look at his second half, and he's had better command".
The Indians came out of the regular season with 102 wins and haven't had two consecutive losses since August.
It was a superlative effort, one that extended the season by at least three games as the Yankees traveled to Cleveland for Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Wednesday. On Thursday, he struck out four times. Next, in the fourth inning, probable Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge sent a missile past the left field fence that the Twins ultimately couldn't recover from.
Brian Dozier's home run gave the Twins an early 1-0 lead. When Aaron Judge came to the plate, you could sense the electricity in the air from the NY crowd.
Bauer clearly wasn't bothered by any pressure of starting off the postseason for the defending AL champs, the current favorites to advance to the World Series.
As quickly as the Yankees evened up the game, they took the lead in the following inning.
Bauer gave up just his second hit, but Tito made a decision to pull him in place of Andrew Miller after the right-hander gave the Indians a scoreless outing and allowed just two hits in 6.2 innings. But a pre-deadline deal between the Mets and Yankees fell apart, reportedly because the NY clubs couldn't agree on how much of Bruce's remaining salary each would pay.
Bauer walked off the mound fired up after that one, too.
Bauer easily outperformed his counterpart Gray, striking out eight and giving up just two hits.
Cleveland Indians starter Trevor Bauer tips his cap to fans after being taken from the game during the seventh inning against the New York Yankees in Thursday's game one of the 2017 ALDS at Progressive Field. I believe that they are one year ahead of schedule and will be in contention next season for a World Series. "So I think that was a huge difference-maker". Judge and Gardner combined to go 0-for-7 in Game 1. Got words for that? Bauer comes in with a 1.37 WHIP and 196 strikeouts over 176 1/3 innings. "We obviously understand what's at stake, but I don't think that's a reason to put any more pressure on ourselves". "I mean, that was some pretty good pitching".
Raiders lose QB Carr for 2-6 weeks
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch wore a shirt that read "EVERYBODY VS TRUMP" as he arrived at his team's game Sunday. Luckily, Denver's defense came through in the last two minutes with a big turnover to seal the victory for Denver, 16-10.
The Boston Red Sox Clinch the AL East
This will be the Red Sox final chance to get back in this game as the Astros are three outs away from taking home a win in Game 1. Keys for the Red Sox on the series for the offense should be ambush early and don't let the starter settle in.
