Then the scoring stopped as the game inched on into night, past nine, 10, 11, and 12 innings.

Austin Jackson flew out, but Yan Gomes hit a double, advancing Santana to third.

Fans excited about a possible sweep in the ALDS were shocked earlier in the game as the Yankees kept adding runs. The longest playoff game the Bombers ever played was a 15-inning affair in Game 2 of the 1995 ALDS vs Seattle. They struck out six hitters, completing the Game 1 shutout and pushing the total number of Yankees strikeouts to 14 on the night. If a situation arises prior to game four - when Severino is now scheduled to start if the Indians do not pull off the sweep - where he's needed in a jam, would it really hurt the Yankees to use him? That's when a showdown between Justin Verlander and Corey Kluber is likely in Game 1 of the AL Championship Series in Cleveland. "They tell us we have 30 seconds".

Francona pulled ace pitcher Korey Kluber after 2 2/3 innings.

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.

Oddly enough, Aaron Judge was not part of the home run festivities, following up his terrible Game 1 (0-for-4, four Ks), with another muted performance (0-for-3, three walks). While Judge has bogarted the bold ink with his epic homers, Sanchez has hit a few himself, finishing fourth in Major League Baseball with an average of 416 feet. Finally, Greg Bird swatted a high-arcing shot (137 feet high) that seemed to join the stars before slipping inside the right-field foul pole, to stretch the lead to 8-3.

The Indians will have a chance to eliminate the Yankees when they meet for Game 3 in NY on Sunday. Somehow, some way, Francona continues to make decisions that seem questionable from the outside but work out perfectly. In six career starts against NY, he is 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA. Girardi called upon Chad Green to get the Yankees out of the inning, which isn't out of the ordinary.

So the Yanks again relied on David Robertson, who has been a godsend.

CC Sabathia outdueled Kluber, going 5 1/3 innings, giving up only two earned runs and four total.

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. He joined me to discuss C.C. Sabathia and the series as a whole.

In the National Basketball Association, they say a series doesn't begin until a road team wins a game.
