Down Goes The Tribe

There has been a lot of ups and a lot of downs this MLB season but unfortunately, it did not end on a
high for our Cleveland Indians as they suffered another heartbreaking defeat against the New York
Yankees in the AL wildcard game yesterday at Progressive Field. The tribe did not go out with a fight
with the score of 10-9 this was an absolute slobber knocker! The tribe started strong putting up 4
runs in the first inning. Three of those runs after 2 rain delays something the tribe should be used to at this point. Sean Carlo Stanton hit a solo home run to put the Bombers on the board in the top of the second inning. Then at the top of the fourth Gio Urshela Hits a breathtaking gland slam sending the ball deep into the left-center field putting the Yankees on top 5-4. At the top of the 5th inning, the Yankees would tack on one more. At the bottom of the 5th, A big hit from Jose Ramirez would clock in 2 more runs sending Lindor and Hernandez home. Then at the top of the 6th just like they drew it up Gary Sanchez hits a home run putting New York on top 8-6. At the bottom of the 7th the tribe would tie the game 8-8.
Then off a Hernandez base hit to take the lead 9-8 in the bottom of the 8th. That was then followed by a
Yankees double play to end the inning. Brad hand unfortunately could not close out the game giving up
2 runs putting the score at 10-9 and ending the Tribes season. Lindor was asked by the media how this
Felt. Did it feel like a playoff game? He responded with no it felt like a “big game late in the season” not
a playoff game. seems like a red flag if you ask me. How will the tribe manage to mustard up some playoff wins losing 11 playoff games since 2016. We will have to wait and see were this offseason takes
us.
