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

2017 MLB playoffs: Austin Jackson scores winning run for Indians in 13th

Francona, who trusted his gut and used No. 3 starter Trevor Bauer in Game 1 with dominant results, isn't going to screw up. His manager blew his team's chance to even the series in Game 2 of the ALDS, and barring a miracle comeback, that inaction will dog him into a long offseason. For his part, Kluber (18-4, 2.25 ERA) said he was comfortable with the decision, which he learned of during a meeting with Francona and pitching coach Mickey Callaway.

He added later: "I mean, how many times have you seen a player, say check, check, check, and it ends up being the call that they called?" "To me, it's not about me wanting to pitch the first game or wanting to pitch the second game". They tell us we have the 30 seconds. "Whichever way that happens, and if it happens and we advance, it doesn't matter who pitches when, in my mind". He will be facing the Indians for the first time since August 6, 2016, when he was the losing pitcher in a 5-2 decision.

Sabathia's final stat line: 5.1 innings, three hits, four runs, two earned, three walks, five strikeouts.

Things didn't start out well for Sabathia. I think he was at 80, and it was set up for our bullpen. "So I'm not really too concerned about it". "So it's not surprising at all". Fortunately, however, according to the Let's Go Tribe fan page, his Twitter feed continued to work so he sent a tweet to United asking for an update.

United States economy sheds jobs for first time since 2010 as hurricanes hit
The labor force participation rate, at 63.1 percent, changed little over the month and has shown little movement over the year. The Labor Department said Friday the USA economy lost 33,000 jobs in September and the unemployment rate fell to 4.2%.

Sanchez immediately yelled to the dugout he felt the ball hit the bat and not Chisenhall but Girardi, with both of his challenges left, chose not to use one of them.

Sanchez hit a two-run home run in the first inning. Headley is just 1 of 14 against Kluber. That includes his start against the Cubs in Game 7 of the World Series. In six career starts against NY, he is 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA.

Joe Girardi could be in danger of being cast out of the Bronx, with the New York Yankees manager coming under fire for a series of blunders that has the team on the cusp of elimination from the Major League Baseball playoffs.
