Joe Girardi reflects on his future, plans talk with family

Trevor Bauer twirls gem, Indians beat Yankees 4-0 to take 1-0 lead in ALDS

If we go out there and win tomorrow, we forget about today. "We'll see. There's no way to know yet". If they topple the mighty pinstripe, vintage-ring-wearing Yankees... the first D.Rose alley-oop pass to LBJ, we experience in MSG was dedicated to you.

The tide turned for the Tribe when Francisco Lindor hit a grand slam in the sixth to bring the Indians within one run.

But loyal fans said the incident is in the past and they are focusing on Game 3.

"My family's always going to come first, and I have to do what's best for them", he said.

Showing a resilient spirit, Indians Jay Bruce staggered the Yankees with a brutal home run over left center field with score knotted at 8 in the bottom of the eighth inning.

For about five innings Friday night, it looked as if the Yankees would be heading back to the Bronx with the ALDS tied, 1-1, against the heavily favored Cleveland Indians.

Aside from their 4-2 series win over Cleveland in the 1998 ALCS, en route to sweeping the San Diego Padres, counting their two losses to Cleveland, New York is 7-10 vs. Cleveland in the playoffs. After Judge reached after striking out on a wild pitch to start the fourth, Gary Sanchez grounded the next pitch, a curveball, into a 5-4-3 double play. After all, the veteran was under 80 pitches and, despite walking Carlos Santana in his first at-bat to start the sixth, showed no signs of wavering.

On a 3-2 pitch and a ten-pitch at-bat, the Brazilian-born catcher, belted a shot down the third base line, sending Austin Jackson home and The Jake into an absolute red-tinged sea of euphoric-fueled passion.

"I couldn't have fallen into a better situation", he said. Disgusted - yes. Especially after reading the multitude of ways Joe Girardi and company let the all-important game slip through their fingertips. Just stay fair.' I started blowing on it a little bit.

Sanchez, who had a great view of the contact, immediately signaled to Girardi and the Yankees dugout that this was an improper call.

"Dellin's the guy I'm probably the most concerned about, " Girardi said.

Indians manager Terry Francona took a gamble, going with starting pitcher Trevor Bauer instead of ace Corey Kluber. "We didn't get many free base runners, which we have in the past off of him, and he was really good".

"The one thing I know is everybody in that room will volunteer to do something".

Girardi isn't concerned about losing the clubhouse ahead of Game 3.

If the team's top RBI-man could not go, Francona said his decision on where Michael Brantley would play would be a no-brainer, as the recovering outfielder would 'walk into the DH spot'.

"When you're at home rehabbing, you start to question whether you'll ever step foot back out on a baseball field and if you'll be able to run the same, if it you'll be able to hit the same", Jackson said.
