"I don't really have any concerns about it because as watching him go through some of his ups and downs this year, how he's always bounced back", Girardi said. It was a reverse Wild Card Game win. The series-changing moment, one that will haunt Girardi straight into this offseason if his team doesn't pull off a miracle comeback, came in the sixth inning with the Yankees still ahead 8-3 and the Indians trying to mount a two-out rally.
Cleveland Indians designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion won't start game three against the New York Yankees, but he might play in the game. After digging themselves into an 8-3 deficit, Cleveland rallied to win the game 9-8 in the 13 inning. Yankees reliever Chad Green threw a pitch that appeared to hit the knob of Chisenhall's bat and into the glove of catcher Gary Sanchez, which would have been a strikeout and ended the inning. Sanchez - who, obviously, had the best view in the entire ballpark - immediately turned to the dugout and told his manager to review the call.
Francisco Lindor came next and crushed a tide-turning grand slam that made it 8-7. "I'm excited for him because a year ago he missed out".
Indians manager Terry Francona made two moves with his lineup. Roberto Perez started behind the plate in Game 1. Austin Jackson will start in left field against NY left-hander CC Sabathia, and Yan Gomes will catch Kluber. Instead of putting Green on in the 7th, Robertson in the 8th and Chapman for the 9th, Girardi lost his lead, and ended up using Chapman for two innings, Robertson for nearly two, Tommy Kahnle and finished with Dellin Betances, also throwing for two innings before allowing Gomes to win the game. Greg Bird gave the Yankees a five-run lead in the fifth with towering fly ball that just stayed fair in right field. The report noted that the Yankees had missed the playoffs three times in the four seasons before 2017 and Girardi could be on the chopping block without a strong performance in 2017.
Secondly, Girardi's pitcher wasn't in any kind of rhythm to begin with.
