Cleveland sure looks like world beaters the way they’ve defeated the Yankees through the first two games. In game one it was the Trevor Bauer show as the Indians #3 starter got the call to open the series in one of those unconventional Terry Francona moves we should all be used to by now.

All he did in rewarding his manager’s faith was fire 6.2 innings of 8-strike out shut out ball on the way to a 4-0 win. Aaron Judge struck our four times among the 14Ks the Indians pitchers managed. Jay Bruce came on from the Mets in an August trade and ended the night with a home run and three RBIs.

That set things up perfectly for the presumptive Cy Young winner Corey Kluber to help deliver a 2-0 series lead. Except New York pounced all over him in game two on the way to building an 8-3 lead.

Now it was the offense’s turn to come through with Francisco Lindor hitting a grand slam in the sixth to make it an 8-7 game. Bruce tied it in the eighth and Yan Gomes singled in the winning run in the 13th. The last five Indians relivers managed to pitch 8.2 innings of three-hit ball to help cue the comeback.

Carlos Carrasco (18-6, 3.29 ERA) had an ace worthy season and was at his best down the stretch. He allowed seven runs over seven starts and 49.2 innings of work. Four of them came in one game.

Masahiro Tanaka (13-12, 4.74 ERA) was the Yankees ace the last couple years. This year he struggled in the first half, rebounded over the summer with a 3.82 ERA in July and 2.63 in August. In September he had a 4.99 ERA. In three of those starts he allowed a total of three runs in 21 innings. In the other two he gave up 14 runs in 9.2 innings.
