Walk-Off Dreams: Indians Stage Improbable Comeback in ALDS Win

New York Yankees fans boo manager Joe Girardi during ALDS Game 3 introductions

New York Yankees fans boo manager Joe Girardi during ALDS Game 3 introductions

First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. Fox Sports 1 will broadcast the game live.

The veteran skipper has been taking heat following a 13-inning loss Friday to the defending AL champion Indians that left NY down 2-0 in the best-of-five series. The native of the Dominican Republic threw only 29 pitches in the game, allowing three earned runs on four hits through one-third of an inning.

The #new york yankees manager, Joe Girardi is now feeling the brunt of criticism after the Bronx Bombers suffered a heartbreaking loss to the #Cleveland Indians in Game 2 of the American League Division Series (ALDS).

"I couldn't feel my forearm for a couple of minutes", Frazier said.

Coming back from a 0-2 deficit in the ALDS doesn't happen often, but it isn't unprecedented.

On the very next play after Chisenhall was given first base things changed drastically for the Yankees. The question was whether it first grazed Chisenhall's hand.

"I took a lot of heat when I came in here as a player".

Girardi relies on coaching assistant Brett Weber to scour replays before challenging. They tell us we have the 30 seconds. The culprit: Indians superstar shortstop Francisco Lindor. Francisco Lindor hit a drive that the 6-foot-7, almost 300-pound right fielder thought he had a beat on from the start.

NY led the major leagues by winning 72 percent of their challenges in the regular season.

Game 4 is Monday in Boston.

But if he could do it over? But, I don't really know. To be honest with you, I bet on it. "Maybe that's the wrong way".

The 10th-year Yankees manager also stood by his bullpen management.

"He was brilliant", Girardi said.

Severino recorded just one out in his American League Wild Card game start, allowing three runs, including two home runs, in a game the Yankees battled back to win.

"I used the formula the other day. That's part of my job, right?" The Indians had just five hits in the game three loss and finished 0-4 with runners in scoring position. Chapman apologized to Girardi, according to the manager, and said liking the post had been an accident.

Girardi isn't concerned about losing the clubhouse ahead of Game 3. That's probably one of the top ones we've had all year. "We'll continue to have it".

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

The Indians had feared a worse diagnosis.

"Once he was good to go, I think he'll be fine, " Francona said. He's doing much better today.

Michael Brantley will sub for Encarnacion as DH. The Cleveland Indians haven't lost back-to-back games since August 22-23.

"He helps us win", Francona said of Brantley, who missed Cleveland's run to the World Series past year following two shoulder surgeries.

Since 2015, Severino has allowed a.428 OPS against (74 percent lower than the league average) when ahead in the count, but a whopping.926 OPS against when behind (79 percent higher than the league average), which is roughly the difference between facing slugger Daniel Murphy or pitcher Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals at the plate this season.

That's especially true considering the Yankees saw Tomlin in Game 2.

Tanaka, meanwhile, limited the Tribe to three hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in seven innings.

"He might pitch forever tomorrow", said Francona.

After Tanaka exited the game, David Robertson and Aroldis Chapman combined to pitch the final two innings. Judge wasn't given an error though it's a play he should make and Kipnis got into third base without an issue.
