Edwin Encarnacion not ruled out for Cleveland Indians' next ALDS game

Yet in this freaky, binary season of the strikeout/home run, the Yankees turned Kluber into a game of pepper, pounding the ball off and over walls, with the carousel of runners stomping on home plate six times after three innings. That's part of my game. Secondary to the 4-0 result is that the Indians were able to save ace Corey Kluber for Game 2.

The Houston Astros can also knock out the Red Sox early on Sunday in Boston.

If that happens, circle October 13 on the calendar. The Indians' skipper must have known something, as Corey Kluber was bad Friday night, failing to pitch into the fourth inning.

In the National League, neither Alex Avila nor Justin Wilson played for the Chicago Cubs, who beat the Washington Nationals 3-0 in their division series opener. While the Indians only manager five total hits on the night, it was more than enough to help the pitching staff carry the team to a Game 1 victory.


Sabathia seemed to be working his magic again. While his hitters were mashing their way to that big lead, Sabathia was retiring 11 batters in a row. Austin Jackson will start in left field against NY left-hander CC Sabathia, and Yan Gomes will catch Kluber.

"He continues to work on his defense, and I'm really proud of what he's done, the improvements that he's made, and he's only going to get better", Girardi said. Lindor hit a grand slam off Green.

Then, in the bottom of the eighth, Jay Bruce - Thursday's hero - ripped a solo shot to tie it, 8-all, off David Robertson.

The bullpen did everything it could to keep the Yankees in the game as the two teams traded zeros until the 13th inning, when the Indians plated the game-winner on a Yan Gomes single. He joined me to discuss C.C. Sabathia and the series as a whole. The hulking, veteran southpaw has been a quiet pitching pillar all season. On a young team, will it be an experienced manager whose mistakes ultimately cost them? Seems the same is true in baseball. Though Friday's game ended up a loss, it typified the kind of guts and gifts that have pundits drooling over the club's future. And perhaps they win this game, and this series, next year.
