However, home plate umpire Dan Iassogna ruled that the ball hit Chisenhall's hand - even though Chisenhall didn't react as if his hand was just hit by an inside fastball.

With a 1-2 count and two outs in the sixth, Green's 95-mph pitch hit something before catcher Gary Sanchez snagged it.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi is taking responsibility for not challenging a controversial hit-by-pitch call against Cleveland Indians pinch hitter Lonnie Chisenhall during Friday's American League Division Series Game 2. He joined me to discuss C.C. Sabathia and the series as a whole.

He added later: "I mean, how many times have you seen a player, say check, check, check, and it ends up being the call that they called? So it's not surprising at all". He is 9-5 with a 4.53 ERA in 19 postseason games (18 starts). The Indians initially said he had a sprained ankle. They make you throw a lot of pitches.

Kluber could be on the verge of winning his second Cy Young Award.




The 28-year-old is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA in the postseason, having allowed two runs in five innings in a 3-0 loss to the Astros in the 2015 Wild Card Game.

In six career postseason starts, all previous year, Kluber is 4-1 with a 1.83 ERA.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is going with Ellsbury over Chase Headley because of his success in the past against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber. In 11 games as a reliever last season, Severino was 3-0 with a 0.39 and 25 strikeouts in 23 and one-thirds innings; the then-22-year-old, who started two games when the Yankees were eliminated from playoff contention, also held opponents to a 0.105 batting average.

Their offense came alive in the first five innings, scoring eight runs, and starter CC Sabathia's outing lasted longer than Luis Severino and Sonny Gray's combined.

"I don't really have any concerns about it because as watching him go through some of his ups and downs this year, how he's always bounced back, " Girardi said.
