Indians' Game 1 starter Trevor Bauer had success vs. Yankees

Cleveland Indians Michael Brantley walks into the batting cage during a team workout Wednesday Oct. 4 2017 in Cleveland. The Indians are scheduled to play the New York Yankees in Game 1 of an ALDS on Thursday

The New York Yankees (+1400) stack up well against the Minnesota Twins (+2800) in the wild-card game. But they just kept winning, carrying the hot streak right through the end of the regular season, finishing on a 33-4 run. However, Aaron Judge, et al., fared poorly in their season series against both Cleveland and Houston.

"I think the expectations for this year were set from last year's experience and accomplishments, and the failure to win Game 7 of the World Series, although that wasn't a failure by any means", Bruce said.

"They have a good team over there", Indians catcher Roberto Perez said October 4 in the Tribe clubhouse. That was really the only way we could do it. I didn't feel like I was contributing to the team. He hit a two-run homer in the cruel one-game elimination of the Twins.

The Indians are back, but there's now a 6-foot-7, 280-pound baseball-bashing rookie standing in their way.

"For whatever reason, it took us a while to get - whether it's your rhythm, whether it's your footing", Indians manager Terry Francona said. The Indians were fifth with 818 runs.

In 90 games during the regular season, Brantley batted.299 with nine home runs and 52 RBI. If the Indians qualify, they will have home-field advantage. Mike Clevinger, who had a 3.11 ERA and 137 strikeouts in 121⅔ innings, and Danny Salazar, who had the fourth-highest strikeout rate among all pitchers with at least 100 innings, will be available out of the bullpen. The Yankees were fifth at 3.72.

The Indians are not starting their ace in Game 1 of the Division Series.

"This is completely different", Indians center fielder Jason Kipnis said.

Bauer's season was an enigmatic one at times, but it's his best body of work to date. This time around, the staff is healthy and the wealth of options allowed the Tribe to weigh many scenarios.

"They don't take it out of context, you know". We're confident. We're ready.

Remember last year's American League wild-card game between Baltimore and Toronto, when Orioles manager Buck Showalter, with the score tied, refused to use closer Zach Britton late in the game until the Orioles got the lead? "That means everybody went through what happened previous year".

The Cleveland Indians are done marveling at their record-setting season, focused instead on avenging their dramatic extra innings Game Seven loss in last year's World Series and snapping Major League Baseball's longest title drought. But I think as far as the game goes, I think he's really good for the game.

From the streak, to Austin Jackson's catch in Fenway, the Opening Day walk-off and everything else that happened, no one should view the season as a waste if the Indians don't win it all. On four days of rest, Kluber posted a 1.67 ERA in 124 innings this season. That's what we were missing.

Girardi showcased his stellar group of relievers Tuesday night after starter Luis Severino was chased in the first inning.

The Indians went into spring training claiming they had some unfinished business to tend do.

They are back again this year as the top seed with 102 wins.
