Bauer baffles Yankees, Indians take Game 1

Corey Kluber's absence in Game 1 is a golden opportunity for the Yankees
YankeesmanagerJoe Girardisaid that the Yankees did not challenge the Chisenhall hit by pitch because they had no indication that anything was amiss and he didn't want to disrupt pitcher Chad Green's rhythm. "But I've got to move forward, and we'll be ready to go tomorrow", he added, referring to Game 3, which is slated to get underway at 7:38 EDT Sunday night at Yankee Stadium.
Throw in Cleveland free-agent slugger Edwin Encarnacion suffering a horrific ankle injury in getting picked off of second on an inning-ending double play, and everything seemed to be working in New York's favor.
Citing a Yankees official, Newsday'sAnthony Rieber said Chapman went into Girardi's office to apologize for the social media slip-up.
Cleveland Indians fans have never given up on the team even when the going got tough.
In the eighth, a home run by Jay Bruce tied the score and Yan Gomes hit a single during the 13 inning knocking in the winning run for the Indians, giving them a 2-0 lead in the series. Last year, he had a 1-0 record in two starts versus the Indians with a 3.38 ERA. "This is part of our life in New York City and in the Bronx, so we wish the Yankees win the game today".
It all happened in the sixth inning, when batter Lonnie Chisenhall was awarded first base on a ruled hit-by-pitch. And I think together, we'll figure it out.
Carlos Carrasco, the Indians' starter when the series shifts to Yankee Stadium on October 8 with the Tribe in command, two games to none, was 18-6 in 2017. It wasn't long ago we were all praising the Yankees skipper for the way he used his bullpen in that one game Wild Card against the Twins.
Fans in Progressive Field, still riding high from beating the Yankees 4-0 in the series opener, were pumped before Game 2 began. The call, which could have been overturned based on replay, led to Francisco Lindor's dramatic grand slam, and eventually a 9-8 Indians comeback win. After Jason Kipnis flied to center, Sabathia lost his command as Kluber had in the top half, walking Jose Ramirez and hitting Encarnacion with a pitch to load the bases. They made it to Game 7 of the World Series previous year without Brantley and without starting pitchers Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar. Carrasco's 226 strikeouts allowed him to surpass his previous personal best, 216, from the 2015 season. Slow motion replay of the play, however, appears to suggest the two-strike pitch tipped off the lower end of Chisenhall's bat, which would have made it a foul ball. "But that can't get me away from what I need to do on the mound".
"I took a lot of heat when I came here", he said. Only Brett Gardner, Chase Headley, and Greg Bird were able to eke out walks throughout the entire game, with one each. "It's as good as we've seen it, and he's been pitching better".
