Social media explodes over Joe Girardi's decision not to challenge

New York Yankees get Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber in Game 2 Joe Girardi on Yankees' Game 2 collapse: 'I screwed up'

Austin Jackson will start in left field against NY left-hander CC Sabathia, and Yan Gomes will catch Kluber.

The New York bench boss opted not to challenge a play with a five-run lead midway through the game which, potentially, led to the Indians' comeback. It was Kluber's third straight start on short rest, and he was out of gas, giving up four runs in four innings.

Joe Girardi could be in danger of being cast out of the Bronx, with the New York Yankees manager coming under fire for a series of blunders that has the team on the cusp of elimination from the Major League Baseball playoffs. They make you throw a lot of pitches. Girardi called upon Chad Green to get the Yankees out of the inning, which isn't out of the ordinary.

Jackson reached on a single in the bottom of the 13th against Yankees reliever Dellin Betances, stole second and then scored on Yan Gomes' RBI single. Jay Bruce provided the offense with three RBIs, including a two-run home run.

After conferring with replay coordinator Brett Weber, Girardi didn't challenge. Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor knocked out a grand slam, drawing the Indians within a run of the lead. (Cleveland tied its record on Friday night.) No matter the numbers, this games was agonizing, as it not only cost the Yankees a chance to return to the Bronx with the series tied, it also all but killed their chances to advance to the next round.

Everyone from Ron Darling to Nate Silver tells us that the best way to win the World Series is strong pitching and great gloves up the middle. "An inning that served as the trigger for a 9-8 Indians win in 13 innings and what is now the Yankees' likely extinction from the 2017 season, trailing 0-2 in this best-of-five".

Tuesday night, Girardi avoided what the binder may have said about hitting Aaron Judge cleanup or keeping Luis Severino in the game to battle his way through the first inning.

However, it was called by the plate umpire as a hit-by-pitch and they are reviewable.
