There is no magic formula here. Just nine teams have won a best-of-five series in Major League Baseball after losing the first two games, and just three of those nine teams won Game 5 on the road. At this moment, it is not impossible, but it's looking grim down 2-0 against an Indians team that had all the momentum heading into the postseason.
The national media may be saying the series is all but over and the Yankees are a team of destiny, but the series is still tied and Corey Kluber is on the mound for the deciding Game 5. Francisco Lindor hit a drive that the 6-foot-7, almost 300-pound right fielder thought he had a beat on from the start.
The Yankees face a uphill battle and the next 48 hours could be big for the Yankees as well as Girardi and Tanaka. Both times pitched pretty well.
Whether you're a fan of Hample and his ballhawking ways or not, there's no denying that his presence so close to a show-stopping home run robbery adds an extra bit of intrigue and interest to the scene.
The Indians lead the 5-game series 2-1. "We'll go out and try to win one game", he said. This past season was considered Judge's rookie year as a starter, not as a pro player. He is the the final year of a four-year deal that he signed in 2013.
Severino, spotted that 5-0 lead, was far better than in his start against the Twins in the wild-card game last Tuesday when he lasted one-third of an inning.
If you know the long history here, that may sound a little silly. He overthrew and couldn't locate as he usually does. That's really unfair to them, so I'm always protective to them.
It worked out because the Indians now have three of the top ten starting pitchers in the AL.
The Indians beat Severino on August 28 as Severino worked 6.2 inning and struck out nine batters.
- The last game he was basically hyperventilating in the bullpen, and what that does, it causes him to overthrow. Mike wrote a post about it yesterday.
Of course, it wasn't easy for the Cubs a year ago, but if you were like me, you had a quiet confidence (well, as much confidence as a Cubs fan could have) that they were somehow going to get it done, whether it was the Giants, Dodgers or Indians.
Super obvious point here.
The Yankees, helpless against Trevor Bauer and his curveball over 6 2⁄3 shutout innings in Game 1, knocked the righthander, pitching on three days' rest, out after 1 1⁄3 innings. "They've been playing great but Girardi has been making some terrible mistakes as far as coaching and managing goes". "Their powerful lineup can force a wide range of offense", Tanaka said. The ball wasn't only carrying two runs, but six months of baseball. Get on him quick. Severino, 23, was 14-6 with a 2.98 ERA during the regular season.
"I love it. CC is a big-game pitcher". If not Severino, who would they start? So, no, the short-rest start by a non-ace didn't go well. "Whatever their decision is, I'll live with". This season, the right-hander went 10-9 with a 4.98 ERA. Carlos Santana was 1-for-5 with a run and two RBIs.
"It's the postseason", Carrasco said. "So it's a totally different feeling than it was the other day, and these guys have picked me up". So, we'll take our time and allow him to continue to get treatment. The Pinstripes then had five innings to score a run and escape Cleveland with a win. Another organization. We can't have that happen. "(There are) going to be a lot of people. For the sake of this team, let's hope he finds a way to play.
Of the 76 teams that have fallen into a 2-0 hole, nine (11.8 percent) have gone on to win the series.
