The Indians win game two of the ALCS in very similar fashion to their first win of this series. Timely hitting, good staring pitching, and an electric shutdown bullpen to compliment the starting pitching. This is the Indians formula to winning ball games, it just so happens to be working to perfection. Josh Tomlin started for the tribe tonight, he would follow in Corey Kluber's footsteps throwing a gem for his team in the biggest game of his career. Tomlin threw 5 2/3 innings allowing just 3 hits, 1 run on a Josh Donaldson double, and struck out 6 batters. J.A. Happ started for the Blue Jays, he would let up an early home run to Carlos Santana in the 2nd inning, but that'd be one of three mistakes that would cost him the game. The other two mistakes came in the third inning, the first of those was walking his only batter of the game, walks to start an inning never lead to good things. The last of his mistakes was letting up a base hit to Francisco Lindor that would drive in the batter he walked. Lindor has been feasting this postseason, he's been amazing all season long, but so far in these playoffs he's been especially exceptional, and everyone is finally getting to watch him play. Indians had a 2-1 lead after the Lindor RBI single, Andrew Miller would pitch the 7th and 8th inning again, and he would strike out 5 of the 6 batters he faced. Miller is just absolutely filthy, he now has 10 strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings pitched this ALCS, that's just not fair. After he was done making the Blue Jays hitters look silly, Cody Allen came in to close the door shut on the game, he would do just that as he hasn't let up a base runner in this series yet. The back end of this Indians bullpen is such a luxury for Terry Francona to have, he has to basically hope his team can get a lead, his starter can go 6 innings, and the last three innings will be shut down by the Miller Allen duo. The Blue Jays now have their backs against the wall, fortunately for them they're heading home where we all know they play much better. These bats need to get going for them or this series won't last much longer, they'll never win a pitchers duel in this series, they're simply over matched in that department. Blue Jays need to get an early lead in game 3 this way they don't have to face Miller and Allen while they're down. Indians seem to be following in the Cavaliers footsteps though, is Cleveland becoming the city of champions?
