Previewing Blue Jays vs. Indians and Dodgers vs. Cubs

Previewing Blue Jays vs. Indians and Dodgers vs. Cubs

Lindor has a almost ever-present smile and celebrates every good play that he and/or one of his teammates makes during the course of a game, and that energy level continued in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Toronto Blue Jays at Progressive Field Friday night.

An afterthought in August, Tomlin has emerged as an unlikely October star for the Indians.

Pitching in game three for the Indians is Trevor Bauer in Toronto against Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman as the Indians look to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series on Monday night. The left-hander struck out the side in the seventh and two in the eighth and has 10 strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings in the series.

Carlos Santana opened the scoring for Cleveland in the second inning with a solo shot, his first career postseason home run.

Andrew Miller struck out five of the six batters he faced and Cody Allen got the save with a flawless ninth.

After testing his knee through a gauntlet of agility drills prior to the series, Travis was included on the Blue Jays' 25-man ALCS roster and started Game 1 at second base, batting ninth.

Following Donaldson's RBI double in the third inning, Tomlin walked Edwin Encarnacion, but then found his rhythm, retiring the next 10 batters he faced, five on strikeouts. He was struck in the back of the head by Carlos Gomez's line drive, measured at 102 miles per hour off the bat.

That could be a cure for the Blue Jays, who were 11 games over.500 at Rogers Centre during the regular season.

CLEVELAND - This Toronto Blue Jays group has a chance to figure out how it will be remembered.

Andrew Miller has Cleveland two victories from the World Series - and Toronto batters swinging and missing.

Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin pitched 5 2/3 innings to get the win. The only run came on a Josh Donaldson double, but for the second game in a row the starting pitching of the Indians was able to neutralize a lineup filled with several dominant right-handed bats.

Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis is done for the postseason with a right knee injury he aggravated during Game 1.

Darwin Barney started at second base in Game 2 place of Travis.

Miller started the seventh and worked two scoreless innings, striking out five. When Tomlin is on, he is indeed excellent, and he tied up the Blue Jays in knots with a flurry of curveballs Saturday. "He's doing a pretty good job throwing the fastball for strikes. Hey, first-pitch outs for Miller, to save his arm and get him through some more innings, it's all right by me".

"That needs to be one of our strengths if we are going to get where we want to go", Cleveland manager Terry Francona said of his bullpen.

While catcher Russell Martin pointed out how the Jays came back from a 2-0 deficit in the 2015 ALDS against Texas, Gibbons mentioned that the Jays lost the first two games of last year's ALCS against Kansas City and still took the Royals to six. "I always wanted to help my team win and I thank the Lord for the opportunity".

Teammates were disappointed to see Travis go down again, and realize he'll be tough to replace for the duration of the playoffs.
