Yankees To Go With Gray And Sabathia In ALDS Games 1 & 2

Yankees To Go With Gray And Sabathia In ALDS Games 1 & 2

A new one, the only one, is about to begin.

James rallied behind the Indians all last season and even took to his media platform "UNINTERRUPTED" in earnest after the team suffered a crushing defeat in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series against the Cubs.

There is much more to the Yankees than the 6-foot-7 Judge, too.

Gray will make his postseason debut for the Bombers in Game 1 of the AL Division Series against the Indians in Cleveland on Thursday night.

Gray went 4-7 with a 3.72 ERA in 11 outings for NY.

"For whatever reason, it took us a while to get - whether it's your rhythm, whether it's your footing", Indians manager Terry Francona said.

Judge and his teammates capped a travel day with a workout at Progressive Field, where both he and Todd Frazier hit tape-measure shots into the vacant left-field bleachers during batting practice.

Cleveland has the pleasure of sending an ace to the mound almost every night as manager Terry Francona's Tribe arguably boasts baseball's best rotation. "He's bad for the teams you're playing against".

"As you saw us getting into the second half and the important games we want to play in, you saw everyone kind of turning that switch back on". I know, if you throw it in the wrong place, he's going to hit it a long way.

Pitchers Masahiro Tanaka, who is expected to start Game 3, Jaime Garcia and Jordan Montgomery were included on the roster for the ALDS against the Indians. And the options for a game 3 starter, their first one at home and possibly a must need are pretty bleak.

It makes sense. Then again, it seems risky. Andy Pettitte had been brilliant, and 2007 was Joba Chamberlain's most dominant season; the presumption was that, with a 1-0 lead in the eighth, the Yankees would just ride Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera to the Game 2 ALDS victory.

Cleveland led the AL in almost every important pitching category, including team ERA (3.30) and strikeouts (1,614), while the Yankees posted a league-low batting average against (.228). "But I didn't plan on [Tuesday] night, either". With New York's season on the line, Girardi wasn't taking any chances. He can run a little bit, puts the ball in play, and has power. Some veteran guys, some leadership. "They can do a lot of different things offensively". Last year's series between Cleveland and Chicago was a nailbiter, coming down to literally the final at bat of the season. In fact, the Indians are the only team in the AL whose cache of relievers can stack up with New York's.

"Everybody's even", Francona said. "It's going to be who plays the best". But unlike Minnesota, Cleveland's pitching staff is as formidable as it comes, especially its bullpen.

Luis Severino got rocked in only a third of an inning, however, surrendering two home runs and plating three Twins hitters.

The Yankees answered in a huge way, with a monstrous 3 run home run from Didi Gregorius that electrified Yankee Stadium and brought them back into the ballgame.

The Yankees, though, aren't just a one-man show. Back in 1920, the Tribe defeated the Brooklyn Robins in seven games, more than a decade before they became the Brooklyn Dodgers.
