Joe Girardi on Yankees' Game 2 collapse: 'I screwed up'

Aaron Judge and the Yankees need to capitalize and take an early-series lead

There is still no indication from the New York Yankees that Joe Girardi could be fired, and the team still has a chance to start a comeback in Game 3 against the Cleveland Indians that would likely put the talk of Girardi's exit to bed.

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?"

Yankees pitchers will be throwing to catcher Gary Sanchez, whose defense has been criticized this year, but manager Joe Girardi is happy with the progress Sanchez has made behind the plate.

The call came in the bottom of the sixth inning with Chisenhall down 0-2 in the count. If it does, Kluber could also pitch in Game 5.

The festival is not directly involved in the investigation but they have been briefed on its progress. I suggest you contact Metro [police]. "As you know this is an ongoing investigation".

Everyone from Ron Darling to Nate Silver tells us that the best way to win the World Series is strong pitching and great gloves up the middle. Girardi often utilizes his challenges during the regular season (and well; this season, the Yankees were successful on 29 of their 41 challenges, the best percentage in baseball), and in a game like this, when your team's back is to the wall, he chose not to. He's such a good athlete, and I don't think people give him credit for that. Girardi had a series of questionable decisions including choosing not to challenge a controversial hit-by-pitch call that allowed the Indians to load the bases, hitting a grand slam in the next at-bat to cut the Yankees lead to one run.

Asked if he was surprised by Sabathia's late-career surge, Francona said: "Not at all". While the Indians only manager five total hits on the night, it was more than enough to help the pitching staff carry the team to a Game 1 victory. They make you throw a lot of pitches.

Progressive Field went nuts and the Yankees were suddenly closer to squandering a great effort that knocked Cleveland ace Corey Kluber out of the game far earlier than expected. "But I've always taken responsibility for loss and I take them hard too". Austin Jackson will start in left field against NY left-hander CC Sabathia, and Yan Gomes will catch Kluber.

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