Yankees Down 2 In Series After Indians' Come-From-Behind Win

Yankees Down 2 In Series After Indians' Come-From-Behind Win

"No words, honestly. I'm speechless". The bases were loaded for superstar SS Francisco Lindor, where he erupted the Cleveland crowd by hitting a moonshot grand slam to trim the deficit to 8-7.

New York's now got to face Kluber, an 18-game victor during the regular season. Girardi was forced to decide on the challenge within 30 seconds, and decided against it. Additionally, this "groove" notion must be a new belief as anyone familiar with the Yankees knows Sanchez takes as many mid-inning trips to the mound as any catcher in the league.

Michael Brantley continues to make progress in his recovery from an ankle injury and could be in the lineup in left field when the ALDS shifts from Cleveland to NY on Sunday. Of the 63 teams that won the first game and went on to win the series, 31 started the series as the visiting team.

Both Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez homered off Kluber, and NY entered the six inning leading 8-3, when the wheels came off.

NY starter CC Sabathia was lifted with one on and one out in the sixth for Chad Green, another one of the Yankees' flame-throwers who got an out before Gomes doubled. Right then, it was Joe Girardi's job to do whatever had to be done to make sure the play was reviewed, up to and including staging a flea circus on home plate in order to buy enough time for his own review guy to get a look at the play in slow-motion.

If the replay fiasco indeed becomes the epitaph for this Yankees season, it will be the latest once-a-decade, mistake-by-the-lake moment the team has endured in Cleveland, which happens to be the ancestral home of the Steinbrenners, the team's owners.

"There was nothing that told us he was not hit on the pitch". No question. He should have challenged the hit-by-pitch of Lonnie Chisenhall in game 2 of the ALDS between the Yankees and Indians.

The Yankees were down, 2-0, for the third time in the ALDS in franchise history. And I think together, we'll figure it out. "Then after a couple of steps, I was like, 'No, don't go foul, please". That's just who I am. I mean this is exactly why baseball introduced replay, for this exact type of high-stakes scenario.

Even as Alabama was pushed by A&M, outcome was never in doubt
If A&M wants to upset the Tide, then they're going to have to deploy schemes that create separation from the Alabama D. Hurts passed for two touchdowns and ran for a third in the first half of a 66-3 win last weekend over Mississippi.

Robertson was part of the bullpen meltdown in Game 2, when he allowed a game-tying home run to Bruce to lead off the bottom of the eighth Friday at Progressive Field. But they've grown to appreciate his quirky ways and the fact that he's a gamer.

Kluber wasn't himself. Not even close.

Kluber barely resembled the pitcher who virtually unhittable in the second half of the season en route to an 18-4 record and 2.25 ERA. He'll face CC Sabathia, who enjoyed a nice second half of the season but will enter as a substantial underdog.

"I take responsibility for everything, and I feel disgusting about it". They made it to Game 7 of the World Series a year ago without Brantley and without starting pitchers Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar.

After rolling his ankle, Encarnacion stayed on the ground and rolled in the infield dirt in obvious pain while waiting for medical attention. Unable to stand he waited for medical assistance before being helped off the field.

Encarnacion said nothing is broken in his ankle and that he's day to day.

Michael Brantley will sub for Encarnacion as DH. Brantley went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts after replacing Encarnacion in Friday's game.
