Cleveland planning to start rookie Merritt in Game 4 or 5

Cleveland planning to start rookie Merritt in Game 4 or 5

Schilling, who had a torn tendon sheath when he pitched in the '04 ALCS, is most remembered for his performance in Game 6 against the Yankees as he tossed seven high-quality innings to help the Red Sox force a Game 7 which they would eventually win to advance to the World Series.

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber (28) pitches against the Toronto Blue Jays during the first inning of game one of the American League Championship Series in Cleveland on Friday October 14, 2016.

"God, I was so embarrassed when I heard that or when somebody asked me that after the game", Francona said. If Bauer does not pitch deep into the game, Kluber will start Tuesday on short rest.

Trevor Bauer, the Cleveland Indians' Game 3 starter in the American League Championship Series, is pitching tonight's game against the Toronto Blue Jays with an injured pinky. "And then that would allow Kluber to pitch a Game 7 if need be".

KPD helps raise city's LGBTQ "equality score"
Cities that have been rated all five years of the MEI have improved their scores approximately 20 points over that time period. It marks the second year of gains for Toledo, which scored 58 in 2014 and 76 in 2015.


That sure is a bloody finger and also bloody trousers, and while you can't see it here, also bloody jersey because that's where Bauer was wiping off the blood. "Like we said before, the first goal was to get him completely healthy, and then when that happens we'll see where and if it leads to him helping us in a game".

"It's awesome that they trust me", the 24-year-old Merritt said. Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar aren't on the ALCS roster, and Bauer's problem left Francona in another tough spot.

Merritt made just four appearances with one start for the Indians this season, going 1-0 with a 1.64 earned run average.

"We're not ready to activate him but he is doing much, much better", Francona said.
