Major League Baseball playoffs: Austin Jackson scores winning run for Indians in 13th

Greg Bird hit a two run home run off Mike Clevinger to make the score 8-3 Yankees. Gomes came to the plate and battled off nine pitches until magic number 10. That the Indians don't plan on making a roster move to replace Encarnacion for the remainer of the series is an encouraging sign that the team truly believes he can get back on the field.

The Cleveland Indians stunned the Yankees on Friday night after rallying back from a five run deficit to overtake NY 9-8 in extra innings and taking a 2-0 lead in the series.

Sale's evening (which ended after he'd allowed seven runs in five innings) could have been considerably more pleasant if not for Jose Altuve, the 5-foot-6-inch MVP frontrunner who became only the ninth player in postseason history to hit three home runs in a single game. Carrasco had a tendency to lose his composure and concentration with runners on base, and the switch to the pen freed him to think batter-to-batter rather than worry about pacing himself and looking three or four innings ahead.

"Three hits is not going to do it", third baseman Todd Frazier.

Josh Tomlin was penciled in as the Game 4 starter, but Francona will have to rethink that because he had to call on Tomlin to pitch the final two innings October 6 to earn the win. When the Yankees were introduced prior to Game 3 of the ALDS in the Bronx, the manager was roundly booed.

"For all his stuff, he lacks consistency and a killer instinct", Baseball America wrote of Carrasco in 2009. "You go out there and do it again tomorrow".

In the lead up to the game, Saban had described the Aggies as the best team the Tide would face through the first six contests. The Crimson Tide defense stood its ground there before the Aggies' Daniel LaCamera nailed a career-high 52-yard field goal.

"I told him, 'Hey, we can't act like we got hit in the stomach and got the wind knocked out of us, '" Francona said.

Citing a Yankees official, Newsday's Anthony Rieber said Chapman went into Girardi's office to apologize for the social media slip-up. Severino pitched in relief past year and is familiar with the role.

On Thursday night, he carved up the Yankees. Gardner led off with a good at-bat, eventually flying to left. "But here's the process that I go through".

Bauer, who was a surprise choice by Indians manager Terry Francona to start Game 1 ahead of ace Corey Kluber, threw 98 pitches, striking out eight with one walk. "It's hard. It's a hard day for me", the Yankees manager said. "The strike-to-ball is the hardest pitch of all because he's got so much good deception with it, it's easy to say lay off, but it's another thing when it's actually happening".

Joe Girardi greets Terry Francona before Game 3 of an American League Division Series baseball game, Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, in NY. The run was driven in, naturally, by Bruce, who fell behind 0-2, worked the count full and delivered a sacrifice fly against Garcia.

Hendricks (1-0) allowed two hits, struck out six while throwing 106 pitches. Really, it's kind of all hands on deck...and then we'll make a decision, " Girardi said before Game 3.
