He retired 11 batters in a row.

Both Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez homered off Kluber, and NY entered the six inning leading 8-3, when the wheels came off. The pitcher whose creaky knee nearly made him quit in the middle of his 17 season had outlasted likely Cy Young Award victor Corey Kluber. Somehow, some way, Francona continues to make decisions that seem questionable from the outside but work out perfectly. The Yankees counter with C.C. Sabathia (14-5, 3.69 ERA). "We believe in our entire team, and it took an entire team tonight to win". Even if Girardi had been overruled, the Yankees still had a big lead.

Following an excruciating extra-innings loss to the Indians on Friday, Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman stirred a bit of controversy after "liking" a very pointed Instagram comment directed at manager Joe Girardi. "Whichever way that happens, and if it happens and we advance, it doesn't matter who pitches when, in my mind". He's such a good athlete, and I don't think people give him credit for that.

Instead, Chisenhall went to first and Francisco Lindor followed with a grand slam that got the Indians to within a run in a game they ended up winning in 13 innings in Cleveland.

"The one thing I know is everybody in that room will volunteer to do something". He joined me to discuss C.C. Sabathia and the series as a whole. "Our guys have been great all year".
