Bauer, Bruce Sink Yankees in ALDS Game One
Great pitching and an ex-Met combined to do-in the New York Yankees in Game 1 of their American League Division Series with the Indians.
Trevor Bauer struck out eight and walked just one over six and two-thirds innings, not allowing a hit until Aaron Hicks doubled with one out in the sixth. ‘Baby Bomber’ Aaron Judge struck out four times on Thursday, thrice by the hand of Bower.
Sonny Grey (0-1) didn’t make it out of the fourth, surrendering three runs on three hits and four walks through three and a-third innings. Former Met Jay Bruce had a homer, a double, a sac-fly and three RBIs to lead the Tribe to a 4-0 shutout win. And, they’ll throw AL Cy Young favorite Corey Kluber in Game 2 on Friday night.
Kluber was 18-4 wtih a 2.25 ERA in the regular season. The Yankees counter with C.C. Sabathia (14-5, 3.69 ERA).
