MLB comes to the Big Apple where New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians tangle in game four of the ALDS.
The Cleveland Indians had a golden opportunity to wrap up the ALDS with a win Sunday night but a 1-0 defeat at the NY Yankees cut their series lead to 2-1. The generally dependable Cleveland offense was a non factor and in the process a strong performance on the mound went for naught. Tribe starter Carlos Carrasco allowed three hits and three walks and struck out seven over 5.2 frames before Andrew Miller surrendered a solo homer in the 7th to pick up the loss. The Cleveland attack consisted of five hit and a pair of BB with Jason Kipnis going 2-4 while Roberto Perez singled and walked. The Cleveland Indians have named Josh Tomlin as Monday’s starter at the New York Yankees. Tomlin pitched two innings of scoreless relief against New York in game two of the ALDS.
