What do the Indians see in Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka?

I remember Earl Weaver telling me that when I covered the Baltimore Orioles in 1979.

Corey Kluber started the game and did not look like his Cy Young-self allowing six runs and seven hits in 2 2/3rd innings.

The motivation from that setback sustained Carrasco through his offseason workouts and some elbow concerns in spring training, and he logged a 2.04 ERA and held opponents to a.175 batting average in April to quickly put the scars behind him.

Judge, who led the American League with 52 home runs, was 0-for-4 with four strikeouts. One thing to keep an eye on will be the availability of Indians slugger Edwin Encarnacion, who left Game 2 with an ankle injury.

Surely, King George is roiling in his grave at what his hometown Indians did to his Yankees on the corner of Carnegie and Ontario.

It's possible, and that unknown is driving fans insane right about now. It was a 5-hour, 8-minute game.

Cleveland used eight pitchers, the Yankees six. The Indians figured to have a slight edge but only because New York's had been taxed in the wild-card win over the Twins and again in the Indians' victory Thursday in the series opener. And I kept thinking, "The Tribe isn't riding momentum, it's a tidal wave!"

"For him to get an opportunity to be part of what we're doing is extra meaningful to him", Francona said. The run was driven in, naturally, by Bruce, who fell behind 0-2, worked the count full and delivered a sacrifice fly against Garcia.

On further review the ball clearly hit the knob of Chisenhall's bat, and since Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez caught what was a foul tip, it would have been ruled a strikeout. The question was whether it first grazed Chisenhall's hand.

His answer, from transcripts: "It's probably about - it's when Lindor is coming up to bat, in a sense, that we're alerted, and it's frustrating, you know, because if he calls that he's not hit, then nothing ever happens".

We think of Anthony Rendon, fumbling the ball when attempting to throw Javier Baez out at first in the sixth inning of that NLDS. The former Indian had retired 12 of the last 13 hitters he faced. The Yankees pulled their effective starter too early. The umpire thought he was hit. 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. Manager Terry Francona often brags about Tomlin being "a great teammate". MLB.com also offers extensive historical information and footage, online ticket sales, official baseball merchandise, authenticated memorabilia and collectibles and fantasy games. The Yankees had two of them. They're down two games. With any manager, there will be some good, there will be some bad.

It is no secret that Tanaka has endured what he acknowledged as an "up and down" season from the outset, from a shelling in Tampa on Opening Day to perhaps his finest start of the year in his final outing last week against Toronto with various shades of the pitching spectrum in-between.

Last season he became the first Colts player in almost 10 years to rush for 1,000 yards, and he did it at the ripe old age of 33. That's been the mantra this week at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center following the Colts' latest second-half collapse.
