Yankees polish off epic ALDS comeback and celebrate accordingly in Cleveland

New York Yankees Didi Gregorius runs the bases after hitting a solo home run off Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber

In 378 appearances for the Indians, Shaw compiled a 21-22 record with a 3.11 earned run average. The Yankees are a +145 underdog to win the series.

The Indians have suffered frequent miseries the past six decades but maybe none so harsh as this season.

Tanaka has better splits at home than on the road but other Game 1 candidate Sonny Gray pitched poorly in Game 1 of the ALDS. They trailed, 3-0, entering the fifth, with Sabathia having allowed one hit and struck out eight.

Francona coincidentally was born in '59, the year his father, Tito, played the first of his six seasons for the Indians. Half of those runs came in Game 2.

Shortly after the game ended, the Yankees decided to rehash all the old predictions they heard throughout the season.

Sabathia, who retired the first nine batters he faced - six on strikeouts - cruised the first four innings, allowing his first hit on a leadoff single to Lindor in the fourth.

Well, that's not entirely true.

"It's an eternity", said Gardner, who complimented Allen's stuff. In Game 5, they handed the ball to an aging star. Sabathia, 37, conducted a pitching clinic in Game Two on the importance of movement and location over velocity before leaving with an 8-3 lead.

This time, facing elimination in Cleveland, Aroldis Chapman held the three-run lead.

Wednesday night at Progressive Field, the never-say-die Tribe's postseason dreams were laid to rest.

The confident Ramirez, who hit.100 (2-for-20) in the ALDS, took his no-show in stride. He recognizes some traits in the Yankees that he saw in the Cubs last fall.

Cleveland won 102 games this season and had the best record in the AL. Then they went to the World Series against the Braves, and lost in six games, and fell out with Belle soon after. And when Jackson went down looking for the third out, the celebration began. Through the tears, you can laugh, bitterly. Ramirez's tweet did not age well. As painful as losing Game 7 of the World Series, though? Pretty good teams get hot at the right time and win championships, and great teams exit October early due to a few lousy games. His cutter got yanked over the middle of the plate, his breaking ball was not finished low in the zone, his sinker stayed up. Then he dominated Cleveland six days later. Even more impressive was that it marked his second 12-pitch at-bat of the game. The righty refused to acknowledge anything specific, as expected by any athlete, let alone the seemingly emotionless Kluber.

But perhaps the most glaring shortcoming was the disappearance of the offense.

"We hope so, but sports can change things", Cashman said.

"We can win a lot of different ways", Gardner said. "You work and you understand that you've got to make adjustments a lot faster". They had 15 outs left to mount a comeback, but the circumstance dictated they score in the next three. It was the longest streak of its kind in American League history, and even after the Indians lost, they turned right around to go 11-4 to close out the regular season and roll into the playoffs. Heartache still lingers, next to the questions of how it all could happen again, to this team, in this year. "We're not ready to go home yet".
