Tito to team after loss to Yankees: 'We win together, and we lost together'

Indians' wait continues as Yankees complete rally with 5-2 win in Game 5

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman, who faced Cleveland in last year's spine-tingling World Series and signed an US$86 million free-agent contract in December, worked two innings for the save.

They overcame a 3-0 deficit in the first inning against Minnesota in the wild-card game, shook off a punch-in-the-gut loss and a controversy in Game 2, and are poised to possibly dethrone the defending AL champions.

So what went wrong? So did starter Sonny Gray, from the Oakland Athletics. Probably not. Farrell leaves his post as the only Red Sox manager to guide the team to back to back A.L. East division titles and he was the guy who managed the 2013 team to a championship. "They have been really good". Whether we're talking his sinker, the cutter, his curve, or a slider.

Are the Houston Astros going to take down the New York Yankees in the ALCS and advance to the World Series? Maybe that pressure explained some of the sloppy play and tight at-bats that scuttled their season so abruptly. "I was good enough to go out there and try to compete".

August 3 at Progressive Field: 9 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 1 BB, 11 K in a complete game gem.

Jose Ramirez? He was 2-for-20. seven strikeouts. A team that won 22 consecutive games this summer could not win one out of three when it mattered most.

Jackson dubbed Didi Gregorius the "new Mr. October" in a text to friends after witnessing Gregorius hit two homers - a solo shot in the first and a two-run job in the third - that eventually chased the probable AL Cy Young winner, Corey Kluber. We may never know.

Yes, the Indians had a 2-0 lead in the American League Division Series. The only thing was, he had to wait almost a half hour for his final act as the Yanks busied themselves tacking on two insurance runs in the ninth. Keuchel had a 1.12 WHIP with 125 strikeouts in 145 2/3 innings in the regular season.

But he added: "When it means so much to you, when you want to get it done. you just want it so bad".

For the Indians, three games in four days ended seven sensational months of baseball.

Nothing has been said about it so they probably don't, but we all remember when the Boston Red Sox benched Pablo Sandoval for going on Instagram during a game while, um, using the restroom, so it's a possibility. Also, Judge is now the only player in history with three career four-strikeout postseason games. Throw a lot them across a 162-game season and you're asking for injury.

They said goodbye to LeBron James, Akron's favorite son, in a manner the great English science-fiction writer J.G. Ballard might have imagined 2010 being like: via a television studio, vicarious hopes and dreams distilled into reality television and one supremely talented athlete's stoic face.

These days it is Robertson's job to work multiple innings in middle relief, and he has thrived.

"We just have to be offensively a little bit better tomorrow, " Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.

It was not just the Indians who saw their brightest stars flame out. What if Judge were not 6 feet 7 inches, and had not caught Francisco Lindor's would-be homer in a 1-0 Game 3 loss?

This is due to his blunder in Game 2 when, in the sixth inning, with the Yankees leading 8-3, runners at the corners and two outs, Yankees reliever Chad Green grazed Lonnie Chisenhall's bat with a fastball.

Robertson quickly demonstrated the power of the Yankees' bullpen.

Even the reporter who broke the story about Bauer's Twitter tirade, Barry Petchesky of Deadspin, was blocked by the pitcher who goes by the Twitter handle @BauerOutrage.

Against the Yankees, the Indians struck out 65 times in five games, or an average of 13 punchouts a game. Generally speaking, sliders and curveballs can be hell on the arm, particularly the elbow. Their scalding lineup faltered, scoring five runs in the three losses.

Jason Kipnis had to be thrust into an unfamiliar role at center field.

The last chance was at home with ace Corey Kluber on the mound.

On the 12th pitch, Gardner lashed a single to right.

Consider that Kluber didn't allow more than two runs in a game for his last nine starts of the regular season. I would have had Yandy Diaz on my playoff roster as well. You do what you can.

A long winter for Tribe players, their front office, and the fans.
