Indians have lost 3 in a row in the World Series and ALDS!

CLEVELAND, OH.– Just as if the World Series wasn’t enough pain for the Indians, the 2017 ALDS was a somewhat similar bad experience. Cleveland was up 2-0 on the Yankees, but they dropped 3 straight as New York moves on to the ALCS.

This isn’t the first time the Indians have lost 3 games in a row, in fact, they dropped three in a row in their last postseason series. This came against the Cubs in the 2016 World Series.┬áNot only did the Indians lose three games in a row, they had to see another team celebrate on their own home turf. Ouch.

The Yankees hit Corey Kluber hard, and he only lasted 3 2/3 innings. Kluber ended up giving up three hits and three runs with two homers and two walks which earned him the loss.

New York was up 3-0 until the fifth when Cleveland rallied to make it a one-run game. The Yankees were not done scoring. In the top of the ninth, Brett Gardner singled to right and drove in two runs with Todd Frazier scoring on a throwing error.

Former Cubs closer, Aroldis Chapman, got the two-inning save after mowing down the Indians and holding them to no hits and only one walk. David Robertson got the win after pitching 2 2/3 innings in relief of CC Sabathia. Sabathia pitched very well only allowing 2 earned runs with 9 strikeouts.

The Yankees move onto the ALCS to face the Houston Astros. Dallas Kuchel has been named the Game One starter for that series.
