Indians slugger Encarnacion injures ankle in ALDS Game 2

Pint-sized utilityman Ronald Torreyes committed a giant gaffe when he was picked off second base in the 11th inning of the Yankees' 9-8, 13-inning loss to the Indians in Game 2 of the AL Division Series on Friday night.

"They gave their ideas for it and why they had their ideas for it, and I didn't have a problem with it", Kluber said. It's about us winning three games before they do. "We never feel like we're out of a game".

Betances, in his third inning of work in the 13th, issued a leadoff walk to Austin Jackson. He walked Carlos Santana and then got Lonnie Chisenhall to pop out.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is going with Ellsbury over Chase Headley because of his success in the past against Kluber, Cleveland's ace. Edwin Encarnacion led off with a walk, and Bruce hit a towering fly ball to right field that sailed into the seats for a home run, giving Cleveland a 3-0 lead. "No words, honestly. I'm speechless".

Francisco Lindor stepped up to the plate in the sixth with a grand slam, his first of the year and the Indians' first in the playoffs since 1999.

That also helped chase Gray, who NY acquired July 31 in a deal with Oakland.

That's the pitcher that the Yankees are hoping they can mount some kind of offense against. Ellsbury has batted.263 (5-19) in his career against Kluber, who went 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA in two starts against NY this season.

An RBI single by first baseman Greg Bird and a two strike line drive home run to left field by Judge would be the daggers in the hearts of the Twins who became the first team in major league history to make the playoffs after losing 100 games the year prior.

Judge stranded three runners and the Yankees went hitless in three tries with runners in scoring position.

One would think with 76 of the 98 pitches Bauer threw being either four-seam fastballs or knuckle-curves - that the Yankees would have made some adjustments. Cleveland's three pitchers combined for 14 strikeouts.

New York Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen will not return in his role next season but has been offered another job in the organization. A loss Thursday night means NY needs a win on the road Friday afternoon against Corey Kluber in order to avoid reaching the brink of elimination before they even play a game at Yankee Stadium.

"I thought he had some good swings tonight and he'll be back tomorrow", Girardi said, echoing his star rookie.

"We have a really healthy respect for their bullpen, and they showed exactly what they can do", Francona told David Lennon of Newsday. He quickly was erased on Gary Sanchez's double play.

Other thoughts...Dellin Betances throws 100 miles per hour too effortsely, .Andrew Miller didn't look sharp, and was missing the zone by a lot...Sandy Alomar threw out the first pitch and it was awesome. The Twins lost 103 games past year. "He stood there. But it's just stuff that happens in the game". The umpire was certain that it hit the batter so he made the call. While Sanchez has shown lots of power, NY manager Joe Girardi removed him of catching responsibilities for a few games during the regular season because of passed balls. "Then after a couple of steps, I was like, 'No, don't go foul, please". But I just want to do my part, man.
