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

"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.

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.

"Girardi did not have a good Game 2 on Friday night, but his sixth inning stands as the lowest moment in his 10 years as Yankees skipper". That's when a showdown between Justin Verlander and Corey Kluber is likely in Game 1 of the AL Championship Series in Cleveland.

Yankees starter CC Sabathia pitches against the Cleveland Indians during Game 2 of the AL Division Series on October 6, 2017 in Cleveland, Ohio. It's about us winning three games before they do. However, home plate umpire Dan Iassogna ruled that the ball hit Chisenhall's hand - even though Chisenhall didn't react as if his hand was just hit by an inside fastball.


Asked if he was surprised by Sabathia's late-career surge, Francona said: "Not at all".

The Indians tied the game in the eighth inning on Jay Bruce's solo home run and won it when Yan Gomes' single scored Austin Jackson in the 13th inning. "So I'm not really too concerned about it". If a situation arises prior to game four - when Severino is now scheduled to start if the Indians do not pull off the sweep - where he's needed in a jam, would it really hurt the Yankees to use him? Sabathia was only at 77 pitches, he wasn't falling apart, and the Yankees had a five-run lead. 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. 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.

Managers in New York City are vilified for everything, from pinch runners to bad breath.

In six career postseason starts, all a year ago, Kluber is 4-1 with a 1.83 ERA.
