Open And Shut: A’s Out Early Again With Wild-Card Loss

Wolters hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the 13th inning and the Colorado Rockies outlasted the Chicago Cubs 2-1 at Wrigley Field in the longest win-or-go-home postseason game in major league history.

-Aaron Judge starts his second postseason tonight, and here's the skipper on Judge as a whole: "Aaron's a really, really good leader, especially for being a young player himself". However, if he keeps the ball low in the zone and jumps ahead of the count, we could get "Tanaka Time", which we all know and love. Then at Yankee Stadium in 1976, New York's Lou Piniella charged into Fisk at the plate, and Boston pitcher Bill Lee was body-slammed during the fighting and wound up with a broken collarbone.

Fastball command will be the key for Severino tonight, and Boone said that he wouldn't be surprised if the righty went out and spun six or seven dominant innings.

United States baseball journalist Chris Shearn labelled the move to call Hendriks a starter was an "insult" to the many greats who have gone before him. He lasted four innings in Game 2 of the Championship Series against Houston, a game the Yankees lost 2-1, then gave up three runs over 4 2/3 innings in the 7-1 loss in Game 6.

The right-hander has been deployed as an "opener" in eight of those outings - a popular trend where a reliever pitches the first inning of "bullpen games".

"Unless you play the last game, it's disappointing", manager Bob Melvin said.

Now the real postseason can begin.

"Early in the game they're going to be loud".

Severino made the move look like genius.

This time, he had a no-decision to savor. Betances gleefully backpedaled off the mound. However, in his last five starts, Masa's been improved, posting a 2.79 ERA with 31 strikeouts while giving up just 10 hits and nine earned runs. NY also swept the A's 3-0 in the 1981 ALCS. "The first run is big". Aroldis Chapman followed Britton and finished the five-hitter.

Oakland was a little engine that could, coming off three consecutive last-place finishes and last in opening-day payroll before creeping up to 28th following midseason acquisitions to bolster its injury-devastated pitching staff.

The Yankees will arguably be the biggest game of his career to date, in the A's biggest game of the season, with the victor scheduled to meet the Boston Red Sox in the AL Divisional Series starting on Friday. "We went with our best guys, and they beat us".

While he spoke, the Yankees were spraying Chandon in a soggy clubhouse filled with the sweet smell of California brut.

"Such a insane game", Story said. "I believe he threw his most recent side on Sunday, and we feel like physically he's been sound all year, so hopefully the extra couple days of rest is something that's beneficial, and shines through".
