Joe Girardi says he 'screwed up' by not challenging HBP call

Austin Jackson flew out, but Yan Gomes hit a double, advancing Santana to third. That's part of my game.

Cleveland manager Terry Francona's decision to start Kluber in Game 2 of the ALDS instead of Game 1 raised some eyebrows, but it couldn't have worked out better. Of course, the next hitter, Francisco Lindor, belted a grand slam to cut the Yanks' lead to 8-7 and the rest, as they say, is history.

If that happens, circle October 13 on the calendar. If it does, Kluber could also pitch in Game 5.

Oddly enough, Aaron Judge was not part of the home run festivities, following up his bad Game 1 (0-for-4, four Ks), with another muted performance (0-for-3, three walks). Austin Jackson will start in left field against NY left-hander CC Sabathia, and Yan Gomes will catch Kluber. But in this case, perhaps Girardi should have given Sabathia, who had a spectacular record following Yankees losses (9-0 with a 1.71 ERA), one more inning.

So the Yanks again relied on David Robertson, who has been a godsend.

Nadal into 4th China Open semifinals
Krygios was leading 6-0 3-0 when opponent Steve Darcis retired injured, and he will face Alexander Zverev in the next round. The unseeded Garcia defeated Czech 12th seed Petra Kvitova , the two-time Wimbledon champion, 6-3, 7-5.

Cleveland tied the game on a Jay Bruce home run in the bottom of the eighth, and after that, it really felt like it was only a matter of when Cleveland would win the game, not if. Pitching against the New York Yankees, Bauer got two outs in the seventh inning before he was lifted for the bullpen.

Asked if he was surprised by Sabathia's late-career surge, Francona said: "Not at all". No one will care now that another eight innings were played after he departed, but at least this cap will be tipped to the hefty lefty. On a young team, will it be an experienced manager whose mistakes ultimately cost them? No matter how this series ends, the team and town have nothing to be ashamed of.

The Yankees simply lost to a better baseball club.

What has made the Indians' run to the postseason this year, which included a record-breaking 22 game winning streak along the way, so fascinating is the rise of infielder Jose Ramirez.
