Francisco Mejia hits first AFL homer

The two-run shot from the Indians' top prospect brought his Arizona Fall League average to .387 through seven games. The young catcher slashed .297/.346/.490 with 14 home runs at Double-A Akron this past season.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Mets will reportedly name Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway as manager. In the 3 seasons prior to Callaway's arrival in Cleveland, the Indians ranked 12th in the AL in ERA and 13th in WHIP. But with him, they were the best staff in the American League in just about every way. He'll have an eager young group with which to work. The Mets got 157 starts from pitchers under 30, 3rd-most in MLB in 2017.

Cleveland in unwanted company

The Indians have lost each of their last four winner-take-all postseason home games: 1999 against Boston in the ALDS, 2013 against Tampa Bay in the wild-card game, 2016 in Game 7 of the World Series against the Cubs and Wednesday's loss to the Yankees. The only other teams to lose four such consecutive games are the Braves (four straight) and the Athletics (five), per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Indians' top players didn't show up when it mattered (1:23)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Remarkable series comeback by the Yankees, with CC Sabathia conjuring up memories of his 2009 postseason performance and the vaunted Yankee bullpen -- David Robertson and Aroldis Chapman on this night -- throwing 4.2 scoreless innings. Throw in Brett Gardner's big hit in the ninth, and the old guys did good. We now get the ultimate matchup of power pitching versus power hitting: the Yankees bullpen versus the Astros lineup.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Aroldis Chapman takes the mound for the bottom of the ninth after throwing 13 pitches in the eighth ... and now with a three-run lead instead of a one-run lead. He's put that inexplicable August slump behind him and is riding a streak of 17.2 scoreless innings with 28 strikeouts, three walks and just eight hits allowed. Good luck, Indians.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

It's almost like Joe Girardi learned nothing from the wild-card game. He should have been happy to get three innings from CC Sabathia with a fully rested bullpen, let alone four innings and a 3-0 lead. Instead he let CC stay in to allow four consecutive hits, two of them RBI singles, and he gave the Indians a lifeline for a comeback.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

The Indians have climbed back in the game with four straight singles to chase CC Sabathia and pull within 3-2 in the fifth inning. But David Robertson worked out of the mess by coaxing a double play ball from Francisco Lindor to keep New York up by a run. It's going to be all about the bullpens now in Game 5.
