Mistakes matter: Joe Girardi's mental error helps Cleveland pull off epic comeback

09 Octobre 2017

The Tribe had the momentum going into the ninth inning with a chance to end it but nothing amounted though and extra innings started in Cleveland. You know, he stood still, there. But with an arm like that, if you run out of patience too quickly, he's going to be doing this for another team. "Kluber is clearly the best pitcher in the American League". But this is why there's replay! "He has just fit right in and played against righties and lefties and did a terrific job".

Two innings earlier, Gomes made a pivotal defensive play when he picked pinch-runner Ronald Torreyes off second base with none out in the 11. So what the hell happened? "We need him to pitch like he pitched the other day, " Joe Girardi said. We had no super slow-mo at that time.

"What I have to do the most is to make as many good pitches as possible". So, if it's not something. there was nothing that said he was not hit.

"Now, knowing that I had two challenges, in hindsight, yeah, I wish I would've challenged it".

It was the Indians' first three-game sweep of the Yankees in NY since 1989, and kept alive a winning streak that extended to a franchise-best and American League-record 22 games.

Okay. This is insane. The comeback started in the bottom of the 6th inning with what media is calling a botched opportunity by Joe Girardi. You have not been a catcher for some time!

Girardi said he did not want to break up Green's rhythm on the mound as the bases would be loaded and reviewing the call would have done that. You are the only person in a Yankees shirt who can call for a replay, because you are the manager.

With the score tied 2-2, the next batter stepped to the plate, hitting a drive to Yankees SS, Didi Gregorius. A few days later, the skipper could do nothing right, likely costing his team a shot at the ALCS with some questionable decisions.

Recalling his thoughts on Friday, Girardi said he didn't have enough reason to believe the umpire got it wrong and "very seldom have I ever wasted a challenge when it wasn't conclusive", he added.

Sanchez caught the 0-2 pitch, which would have been an inning-ending third strike if ruled a foul tip.

If you do not have a cable subscription, you can also live stream the game through Sling TV free trial.

Had Girardi challenged the call and the umpires overturned it, NY would have gotten out of the inning with their five-run lead intact, but the point is moot.

But the challenge never came.

Catching Dwight Gooden's no-hitter in May of that season changed things for Girardi, whose triple in the clinching World Series Game 6 elevated him into pinstriped championship lore.

It's the postseason debut for Carrasco, who is coming off his first 200-inning season and ranks among the AL's top five in WHIP (1.10), strikeouts (230) and FanGraphs WAR (5.5) this season. It ultimately goes in the books as a loss in 13 innings and an 0-2 series hole headed to the Bronx.
