Yankees' bullpen almost flawless in wild-card game

05 October 2017

The skipper also wants Bauer, arguably not even the Indians' third-best starter, to throw at home, where he has a 3.93 ERA (4.54 ERA on the road). This is the fifth time in its last six appearances in the postseason that Minnesota has been eliminated by the Yankees and it won its last playoff series back in 2002.

After Severino's short outing, four NY relievers combined on the final 26 outs. His 2.1 innings marked the longest flawless relief outing by a Yankee in postseason since Mariano Rivera 2.2 innings in Game 2 of the 1996 Division Series at Texas.

While the New York Yankees may have gone 2-5 against the Indians this season, that does not mean anything.

MT awaits reauthorization of $96m in fed funding for kids' health insurance
The program, instated in 1997, has been widely praised for extending access to health care for millions of needy children. If Congress doesn't reauthorize the program, millions of children could eventually lose their current health insurance.

It would take the Yankees four hitters of their own to tie the game at three, as Didi Gregorius launched a no-doubt three-run bomb to quell the fears of Yankee fans everywhere. The 34-year-old righty went to full counts against five of seven batters and NY erased their entire deficit on a three-run homer by Didi Gregorius. This was before David Robertson would show up in the third, asked to pick up Green with the bases loaded the way Green had picked up Severino.

That doesn't mean that the Yankees should mark this one in with a Sharpie.

The Yankees knew their bullpen gave them an advantage going into their wild-card game against Twins on Tuesday night. Green, Robertson and Kahnle combined for 7.2 innings Tuesday night-surrendering just one run and striking out 10-before Chapman struck out the side to close it out. Luis Severino went just 0.1 innings in the start, giving up a pair of home runs and three earned, not factoring in the decision.

Didi Gregorius followed Brett Gardner's six-pitch walk and Aaron Judge's flare single to center with a one-out, three-run homer. The Minnesota Twins hammered New York Yankees ace Luis Severino for three runs, including two home runs, in the first inning.

Buxton batted.253 with 16 homers and 51 RBIs in 140 games during the regular season.

The victor of the single game knockout will face the AL Central champion Cleveland Indians in the AL Division Series starting on Thursday. Chad Green would come in and get out of the inning with two runners on and allow the Yankees to tie it up.

Severino started well, with a 100 miles per hour fastball for a strike to the Twins' Brian Dozier. Brett Gardner added on, and later-when Minnesota needed some clean innings out of José Berríos-potential MVP Aaron Judge added two more. However, if they get their bullpen to deliver like it has during the second half of this season and matchup with the Indians bullpen, we might have ourselves a potential upset in the making. They hold a record of 90-33 against Minnesota dating back to 2002.
