The Cleveland Indians had a missed opportunity. Aroldis Chapman got the final five outs to clinch the Yankees' 1-0 win over the Indians in Game Three of the ALDS at Yankee Stadium. Greg Bird's solo homer off Andrew Miller in the seventh inning was all the offense New York would need. Cleveland still leads the best-of-five series two-games-to-one. Miller was tagged with the loss. Jason Kipnis had two of Cleveland's five hits.
The Indians take their second shot at closing out the Yankees in Game Four tonight at Yankee Stadium. Cleveland is starting Trevor Bauer, who worked six-and-two-thirds shutout innings in Game One. New York is going with ace Luis Severino. Severino is coming off not making it out of the first inning during NY's AL Wild Card Game victory.
