"I don't see a ton of them, but I think it's outstanding and it's a little bit emotional, too".

Nevertheless, this is what Indians manager Terry Francona prepared for when he made the decision to start Trevor Bauer in Game 1, holding Kluber - his best starting pitcher - for Game 2. Jason Kipnis has struggled mightily as well (4 of 18). Francona said before Game 4 on Monday that Encarnacion was "working towards" being available as a pinch-hitter, but he still hasn't played since spraining his right ankle in Game 2 on Friday.

The Cleveland Indians need Edwin Encarnacion more than ever, and it looks like the Tribe's DH will be back in the lineup tonight against the New York Yankees in a decisive Game 5 of the 2017 ALDS.

Don't let their wild-card status fool you, however. He held the Yankees scoreless during 6 2/3 innings in Game 1. They have veteran lefthander C.C. Sabathia going for them Wednesday, which probably would set up righthanders Sonny Gray, Masahiro Tanaka and Luis Severino to start the early games of an ALCS. He also led all Indians starters with a.377 on-base percentage.

On April 25 at Progressive Field, Keuchel pitched a complete game in which he allowed only two runs on a pair of solo blasts. The hitters on the Yankees' roster have batted a collective.258/.319/.444 against Verlander, while those on the Indians' have batted.263/.336/.452. And if they win, the Houston Astros, who won 101 games during the regular season, are lying in wait. Robertson, 32, established new single-game career-highs in innings pitched (3.1) and pitches thrown (52), while Green threw two innings and 41 pitches - six shy of his season-high in a high-leverage middle relief role.
