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

Girardi not worried about job status

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 Tribe now has a 2-0 series lead in the American League Divisional Series with a chance to sweep the Yanks on Sunday.

When the Mets launched their fire sale this summer, willing to take penny-stock prospects for the raft of veterans they were intent on unloading, there were two teams that jumped to the head of the line for outfielder Jay Bruce: the Yankees and the Cleveland Indians. There were so many things that happened.

"Whenever we lose I take it hard, and this one was really hard".

It would take another five innings of baseball and a walk-off single by Yan Gomes to seal the miraculous win for the Indians.

Austin Jackson led off the bottom of the 13th by drawing a walk from Dellin Betances (0-1), and then stole second base.

Despite any odds that seem to be against this team, the Indians seem to keep finding ways to win.

But Aaron Hicks will be happy he didn't.

Man, what a wild game. It should have been strike three to end the inning.

Flashing that 22-game winning streak pedigree, the Indians in a preposterous, laborious, calamitous, glorious day at the office, won a game Friday that they had no business winning. But instead of relying on his best weapon, the explosive 98-mph fastball, Green opted for a backdoor slider, "that caught too much of the plate", he said quietly.

"We've had a ton of comebacks this year".

After tagging Kluber for two runs in the top of the first, the Bronx Bombers came back with four more in the third.

"He helps us win, " Francona said.

With the Yankees playing only one postseason game over the past five seasons prior to Tuesday night, a narrative had been published that Yankee Stadium is boring and lacks the atmosphere of the old stadium. The Indians were back in business, and the sellout crowd of 37,681 knew darned well that they weren't backing down. Lindor, the leadoff hitter, hit 33 homers during the regular season before adding the biggest of his career Friday.

Cleveland remains the better team with the deeper pitching staff. Carlos Carrasco gets the start for the Tribe. Shoot, seeing Joe Smith come off the mound so fired up that he was in a game like that, you know, happy to compete, embracing it. The Nationals and the Dodgers went five games, and Los Angeles used Game 1 starter and ace Clayton Kershaw in the fourth game when they were facing elimination.

In six away starts, however, Gray pitched to a 2.21 ERA and only allowing three home runs. It didn't matter because the Indians out-bullpen-ed the Yankees, who have the best bullpen this side of the Indians. After giving up just six runs in the month of September, he gave up six runs in 2 2/3 innings, a performance so unKluberish that it begs a dreaded question.

Then they delivered one of their own.
