Encarnacion out of Indians' lineup for Game 3

The Yankees gave up a haul of blue-chippers for Sonny Gray at the trade deadline for moments like this starting Game 1 of the ALDS and yet it proved too big for him

The Yankees gave up a haul of blue-chippers for Sonny Gray at the trade deadline for moments like this starting Game 1 of the ALDS and yet it proved too big for him

No. 104 for the Cleveland Indians topped them all.

The Cleveland Indians rallied from five runs down to squeak past the New York Yankees 9-8 in 13 innings Friday night at Progressive Field.

After Edwin Encarnacion walked, Gray came inside with a 0-1 fastball and Bruce got around on it. But the Yankees manager said that he has to move forward and that the Bronx Bombers have to be ready for Game 3. My biggest concern is to win a game today and we can worry about that when the time comes. Dellin Betances ook the loss in relief.

"I have always been a guy who sat down and talked to my family, " Girardi said before Game 3 of the ALDS on Sunday night against the Indians at Yankee Stadium, where the hosts were nine innings away from being swept into the offseason.

"When you're at home rehabbing, you start to question whether you'll ever step foot back out on a baseball field and if you'll be able to run the same, if it you'll be able to hit the same", Jackson said. "No words, honestly. I'm speechless". The Yankees are sending Masahiro Tanaka to the mound and the Tribe will go with Carlos Carrasco. "We're human. It's definitely tough because Stras was pitching his tail off, and they happened to get two hits after that". Catcher Gary Sanchez told Girardi immediately that he heard the ball hit Chisenhall's bat.

"I screwed up", Girardi said in a news conference Saturday (via ESPN), after his team traveled back to New York City facing a 2-0 deficit in the ALDS.

Luis Severino is penciled in as the Yankees' starter if there is a Game 4, but Girardi wouldn't hesitate to use the 23-year-old right-hander out of the bullpen if necessary in Game 3.

Little noticed in the celebration was the man who started the 13-inning rally and scored the winning run. Girardi pulled starter CC Sabathia after just 77 pitches to get to Green in the sixth inning, and Green gave up Lindor's slam. But even though Chisenhall didn't show any indication the ball had hit him, he was given first base on a hit by pitch ruling.

Sanchez caught the 0-2 pitch, which would have been an inning-ending third strike if ruled a foul tip. By the time the team saw the slo-mo, it was too late to request a review.

Girardi also said Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman apologized to him for accidentally "liking" a user's comment on Instagram calling the NY manager an "imbecile".

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

Girardi nodded and held up a finger, asking for time to make a decision. If he'd known the future - a grand slam that turned an 8-3 game into an 8-7 game - Girardi surely would have changed his mind. Before he left the batter's box, Lindor gave his shot some help. "That's how I think about it". "That's just what I've done, you know". As soon as it went out, it was just a lot of emotions.

The fact Encarnacion may play in game three at all is a relief to the Indians.

Kluber barely resembled the pitcher who virtually unhittable in the second half of the season en route to an 18-4 record and 2.25 ERA. Greg Bird was 2-for-5 with a home run, a walk, two runs and two RBIs. "I enjoy the competition, I enjoy the relationships, I enjoy watching people have success - and all are part of it", he said.
