Bower, Bruce Sink Yankees in ALDS Game One

He retired 11 batters in a row.

Kluber could be on the verge of winning his second Cy Young Award. Somehow, some way, Francona continues to make decisions that seem questionable from the outside but work out perfectly. Ellsbury has batted.263 (5-19) in his career against Kluber, who went 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA in two starts against NY this season. Asked about his ability to win after losses on Thursday, Sabathia didn't have an answer, saying "it's one of those stats of the year, I guess".

Chapman himself threw two scoreless innings in the ninth and 10th, but started warming up as early as the sixth inning. Carlos Santana walked. Jay Bruce lined out.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is going with Ellsbury over Chase Headley because of his success in the past against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber.

"I don't really have any concerns about it because as watching him go through some of his ups and downs this year, how he's always bounced back, " Girardi said.

You know what happened next.

In that game, Sabathia pitched 5 2/3 innings, giving up three runs on four hits with five strikeouts and four walks.

"Just one of those things".

"They gave their ideas for it and why they had their ideas for it, and I didn't have a problem with it", Kluber said. "Our guys have been great all year".

But, oh, those first five innings. "I feel frightful about it". Two of the runs were unearned because of errors by Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier in each of the first two innings. In innings six through 13, the Yankees did not score and were held to three hits.
