Cleveland Indians season ends with sounds of silence—Terry Pluto (photos) | cleveland.com

The Indians had three chances to win one game, three opportunities to keep what was once such a wonderful season alive.

The last chance was at home with ace Corey Kluber on the mound.

And they failed ... again.

Michael Brantley becomes ‘common sense’ option at DH for Cleveland Indians after Edwin Encarnacion injury | cleveland.com

Brantley, whose inclusion on the 25-man postseason roster was a bit unexpected, says he feels comfortable already, despite playing in only two regular season games before Friday.

“I’ve been doing a lot before the series even started,” Brantley said. “Just making sure what I could handle and what I couldn’t. Make sure we had our limitations. Everything’s been going great, I’m very happy where I’m at right now.”

Cleveland Indians have a night where everything goes right—Terry Pluto | cleveland.com

The Indians look awfully tough to beat.

For the Cleveland Indians, it was a night for fans screaming until their throats were raw.

And for standing and stomping and waving red towels.

And for Trevor Bauer to throw 6 2/3 scoreless innings ... and then leave the game to a standing ovation.

Tip your cap, Trevor!

And he did just that.

How the Cleveland Indians Turned Their Crushing World Series Loss Into a Historic 2017 Season

Lots of interesting tidbits in here.  I’m not just saying that because the Cubs won the World Series.

In Game 7, Indians ace Corey Kluber failed to strike out a batter for the first time as a major league starter. After pitching just four innings, he watched the rest of the game on a television in a small room behind the Indians’ dugout, where he saw Davis homer off Chapman to tie the game in the eighth. (The lockers in the Cubs’ clubhouse had just been covered with protective plastic in anticipation of the postgame celebration. After Davis’s two-run shot, attendants scrambled to tear down the sheeting.) Allen joined Kluber in the room the next inning, after Francona replaced Allen with Bryan Shaw with one out and a runner at first.

—-

After Lindor flied out on the next pitch, with the last game of the year tied after nine innings, rain fell hard enough that umpire Joe West ordered the field covered.

When the Indians retreated to their clubhouse, they were greeted by a visual reminder of just how close they stood to winning the World Series: Now their lockers were covered in plastic sheeting, most of which was pinned up.

Francona ... points to Tomlin in rotation for ALDS

Francona: Clevinger going to bullpen “to be a weapon.” Indians leaning toward 4-man rotation for ALDS.

Francona didn’t name the 4th starter, but sure points to Tomlin in rotation for ALDS, if Game 4 needed. Team still weighing Salazar’s role.

Chicago’s Avisail Garcia and Cleveland’s Trevor Bauer fight over pitches - SBNation.com

As these things usually start, this one began on the diamond thanks to some disagreements over pitching preferences. Garcia, who has said this to pitchers before, thought that Bauer was being unfair with his pitch choices.

So Bauer told him to get back in the batter’s box and get ready to try to get a hit off of him again. Garcia struck out, after which Bauer told him to go sit down.
