Bullpen leads Yankees to victory over Twins

Bullpen leads Yankees to victory over Twins”

And there's one performance they're especially jazzed about.

But after working two scoreless innings, Betances issued a leadoff walk in the 13th to Austin Jackson, who stole second two pitches later to put the winning run in scoring position with nobody out.

Jackson held his right index finger aloft as he circled third base.

But Kluber's second inning was placid, and perhaps the Indians figured his struggles were through. Nunez hurt himself running to first base early in Game 1 Thursday ahd had to be carried from the field.

CLEVELAND, OH - OCTOBER 06: Cleveland Indians catcher Yan Gomes (7) celebrates after driving in the game winning run run with a single to left during the thirteenth inning of the 2017 American League Divisional Series Game 2 between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians on October 6, 2017, at Progressive Field in Cleveland, OH. The first five hours and 100 plate appearances decided nothing. The ploy fails miserably as the Nationals club five home runs off eight Cubs pitchers to finish a sweep.

The next inning, Greg Bird homered with a runner on facing Mike Clevinger to make it an 8-3 game.

No. 104 for the Cleveland Indians topped them all. That's one of the top ones.

NY catcher Gary Sanchez said he heard something, but wasn't sure what.

The Indians said Encarnacion has a sprained ankle and is undergoing further evaluation.

When Sabathia was removed, two of the three runs he had given up to that point were unearned because of errors by third baseman Todd Frazier in the first and second innings.

Cleveland didn't win 102 games during the regular season by turtling away from challenges. "Obviously, you're going to have a game plan for each hitter, but not worrying about them as much as going with our strengths and how our strengths can best get those guys out". Lindor's grand slam in the sixth inning served as the lodestone of the Indians' 13-inning, roar-from-behind, 9-8 triumph. The Indians were back in business, and the sellout crowd of 37,681 knew darned well that they weren't backing down.

"We'll see how it goes", he said. "We want to take advantage and give ourselves a chance to win".

Bruce almost caught Encarnacion on the bases, and as he finished a home-run trot that was more of a sprint, Cleveland's fans hollered "Bruuuuuuuce" like a crowd at a Springsteen concert.

For teams that rely more on pitching depth and hitting however, it may be tricky trying to figure out who should pitch and for how long.

Game 3 is scheduled for Sunday in the Bronx, first pitch at 7:38 p.m. ET. Masahiro Tanaka gets the ball, and he was 13-12 with a 4.74 ERA and 194 strikeouts this season.

The Indians are 43-9 since Bruce arrived in an August 9 trade from the New York Mets.

CC Sabathia was 9-0 during the regular season in 10 starts following a Yankees loss.

New York's Aaron Judge went 0 for 3 and is hitless in seven at-bats in the series with five strikeouts. The Indians had every reason to believe his success would continue Friday.

Cleveland starter Corey Kluber had his worst outing of the year. He had control problems early, allowed homers to Sanchez and Hicks and never recovered.

The Indians posted their biggest comeback win in postseason history, overcoming an 8-3 deficit, a awful start by ace Corey Kluber and a potentially serious injury to slugger Edwin Encarnacion. Baseball can be a amusing game in that regard.

The Indians showed by coming back from an 8-3 deficit to win dramatically that they aren't going to roll over, either.
