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

The Indians' skipper must have known something, as Corey Kluber was bad Friday night, failing to pitch into the fourth inning.

Sabathia's final stat line: 5.1 innings, three hits, four runs, two earned, three walks, five strikeouts. It was Kluber's third straight start on short rest, and he was out of gas, giving up four runs in four innings. With Girardi following in the footsteps of his one-time mentor, former Yankees manager Joe Torre, and saving his best available starter (CC Sabathia) for game two, Gray will need to pitch in Cleveland the way he has on the road this year. They make you throw a lot of pitches.

"I screwed up", the besieged Yankees manager said Saturday afternoon.

The ball hit the bat and was caught by Sanchez which would have made three outs and the inning over with the Indians stranding a pair of runners and the Yankees leading 8-3.

Gary Sanchez motioned to the Yankee dugout for them to call for review the play, but Girardi elected not to challenge the call. Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor knocked out a grand slam, drawing the Indians within a run of the lead.

Ivanka told reporters in 2010 that the 43-story luxury building was 60 percent sold, an important indicator of a safe investment. He said he's "never made a contribution to anyone's campaign, including Cy Vance's, as a "quid-pro-quo" for anything".

Cleveland tied the game on a Jay Bruce home run in the bottom of the eighth, and after that, it really felt like it was only a matter of when Cleveland would win the game, not if.

The bullpen did everything it could to keep the Yankees in the game as the two teams traded zeros until the 13th inning, when the Indians plated the game-winner on a Yan Gomes single.

Plate umpire Dan Iassogna said the pitch grazed Chisenhall's hand, though Chisenhall didn't even react. It's always a good reminder that for all of the information we have as fans, there is more behind the scenes and a human element that we can't quantify.

The Yankees trail the Indians 2-0 in the best-of-five series. Do the Yankees, a year after beginning the stages of a rebuild, have a chance to pull off their biggest playoff upset since the 1996 postseason?
