Cleveland Indians 4 – 2 Toronto Blue Jays
The Indians are one win away from the AL pennant and their first World Series appearance since 1997. Despite losing starting pitcher Trevor Bauer after just 0.2 innings, the Cleveland Bullpen performed admirably, holding one of the most potent offenses in the league to just two runs.
Mike Napoli drove in two runs with a first inning RBI double and a fourth inning solo home run. Jason Kipnis’ homer in the sixth to give the Indians a 3-2 lead was all Cleveland needed.
Francona has said that Corey Kluber will pitch game four. Kluber has not allowed a run in 13.1 innings this post-season.
The series resumes on Tuesday.
