Corey Kluber cool with starting Game 2 of ALDS for Indians


Red Sox over Dodgers in seven: The Sox don't stack up well against numerous other postseason teams on paper, but the bet here is that ace Chris Sale seizes his first chance at a postseason spotlight and brings glory back to Boston.

Oh, hey, the game is tied 3-3 in the first inning. Though he did not factor in the decision, the Athletics notched a 1-0 victory. Robertson pitched three and a third innings allowing three hits and striking out five.

"It's something I really enjoyed", Gray, when asked about 2013, said Wednesday night after the Yankees workout. "I'm not cheering for one team to win over the other, but I love greatness".

Have a look at LeBron shouting out his Cleveland Indians brothers all the way through the World Series previous year.

Of course, champions are the standard with the Yankees. For a team as talented as they are, the World Series has constantly alluded them.

The Yankees shipped three prospects to the Athletics in a July 31 trade for Gray.

It is the first postseason win for the New York Yankees since the 2012 season.

Bauer is well aware of the damage Judge can do, but is just as focused on the rest of New York's lineup.

Winning a World Series this year would help us all enjoy the ride that much more, as there wouldn't be that constant pressure and fear of going another year staring up at that 1948 title banner.

For New York, they are going to have to ride the same wave that they rode on Tuesday and for the entire regular season.

"You scout him as best you can and you try to figure out a game plan for him and go out there and execute it. I'm definitely ready for it".

Despite injuries to perennial All-Stars such as Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley, Cleveland's offense managed to score 815 runs, which was fifth-best in the entire league. He was forced to go to his bullpen early in the wild-card game when Luis Severino was chased in the first inning.

Taking nothing away from the Minnesota Twins, it only seems fitting that the Yankees advanced to face the Cleveland Indians in the ALCS. Since the All-Star break, the Yankees have lowered their team ERA from a 4.02 to a 3.40. Using the team's post-season hashtag, #PinstripePride, the official Yankees twitter account sent out an old photo of LeBron James proudly displaying his New York Yankees fitted. He allowed six earned runs on six hits with two strikeouts and five walks over 4 2/3 innings in a 9-6 home loss to the Rays his final regular season start.

Yankees: One year into a youth movement, the Baby Bombers blossomed fast under 10th-year manager Joe Girardi and returned NY to the postseason perhaps ahead of schedule.

Baseball was the center of discussion in the Cavs locker room previous year after James attended Game 2 of the 2016 ALDS between the Indians and the Red Sox. In 11 starts for the Yankees, he went 4-7 with a 3.72 ERA.

"It was a long conversation", Girardi said of setting up the rotation. "We've just got to keep it rolling in Cleveland".
