Bruce became available in August with the Mets out of contention and cutting their losses in a miserable season. It's the postseason. There are going to be a lot of people [watching]. We did not have the replay that showed he was not hit.
It was so out of character the Indians trolled on the Yankees on their Twitter account for not spending the money that Cleveland did. The Indians eventually won 9-8 in 13 innings to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series.
Cleveland takes its 2-0 ALDS lead to NY for game three on Sunday.
"We knew going into the inning that that was probably our best way to go about it", Indians manager Terry Francona said. "We believe in our entire team, and it took out entire team to win that game". The only thing that stopped this replay from happening was a decision by Girardi to not ask for it. If they topple the mighty pinstripe, vintage-ring-wearing Yankees... the first D.Rose alley-oop pass to LBJ, we experience in MSG was dedicated to you. Gomes was 2-for-5 with a double, a walk, a run and an RBI.
Judge, who led the American League with 52 home runs, was 0-for-4 with four strikeouts.
Man, what a wild game.
Regardless of what happens Sunday or the rest of October, Carrasco's emergence is another tribute to Cleveland's pitcher development approach. Both teams struck out 12 and walked five. And though neither pitcher submitted his best outing Thursday, it was Verlander who got the better end of the bout, lasting six innings and allowing two runs as his team cruised to a Game 1 victory. It's hard to fathom Cleveland losing three straight games and allowing the series to get away from them. "We've had tremendous comebacks". "This is part of our life in New York City and in the Bronx, so we wish the Yankees win the game today". Had the call been overturned, the Yankees would be heading into Game 3 tied 1-1 in the series.
Now, no offense to Bauer, who had a stellar second-half to the regular season, finishing with a 17-9 record, 4.19 ERA and 10.0 K/9, but he's no Corey Kluber - whom the Yanks get to face in Game 2 on Friday evening.

The tide turned for the Tribe when Francisco Lindor hit a grand slam in the sixth to bring the Indians within one run.
