Blue Jays searching for answers after offence remains cold in ALCS

Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista reacts at the plate against the Cleveland Indians during third inning game two American League Championship Series baseball action in Cleveland on Saturday

After Bauer issued his second walk with two outs, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons came out of the dugout to talk with home plate umpire Brian Gorman. "A little offense on both sides".

We will find out at 4:08PM if the boys can pick themselves off the mat, and dust themselves off for another run.

Cleveland manager Terry Francona indicated earlier Monday is that if Bauer didn't get deep into the game that Corey Kluber would start Game 4 on short rest.

Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer suffered a freaky injury last week to his finger while repairing a drone ahead of the biggest start of his Major League Baseball career.

"It hasn't happened yet", Gibbons said. So in 2013 I saw a video of these drones with the LED lights on the back of them racing through the forest and it reminded me of the scene on Endor where they're driving the speeder bikes, and I said, 'That looks awesome, I've got to learn how to do that'. "I don't think this is going to be a big deal". "I want to go out and be able to make my start and help the team any way that I can".

Stroman took the loss after allowing four runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Even a starting pitching disaster for Cleveland in front of a raucous Toronto crowd couldn't jump-start the Jays.

Andrew Miller, Cleveland's versatile relief ace, has struck out 10 of the 12 batters he faced in the first two games of this series, shutting out the Jays over 3 2/3 innings. It may start with Cleveland's starter tomorrow, Kluber, who is coming off three days rest to pitch game four.

Here we are Blue Jays fans. It was Bauer's first career postseason start. After beating Baltimore in the wild-card game, Toronto pounded out 22 runs and hit eight homers in a three-game sweep of Texas in the Division Series.

"It's awesome that they trust me", the 24-year-old Merritt said. Do they have a designated slot in the cardboard carrier-say, front-left-for the lager, and the ale must be middle-left, and the bottles go 'round in a horseshoe shape until they reach the front-right: the last, the best, the double IPA or the imperial stout, with more firepower than all the other beers in the sixer combined? "I count on every single one of those guys to pick me up". But the Jays went 25-15 this season with the veteran right-fielder hitting leadoff.

Meanwhile, injured Cleveland right-hander Danny Salazar threw what appeared to be a simulated game Sunday night at Rogers Centre.

Game 4 will air Tuesday at 4:08 p.m. ET, on TBS in the United States and on SportsNet in Canada. And I understand it.

"I feel like I just haven't been pulling my weight and that's something I need to do a better job of". But if the sun is shining, it's hard. "I feel like I see the ball pretty well against him".

Miller recorded a four-out save.

The Indians called in six relievers to get through the game after Bauer left in the first inning.

"To be honest with you, if he's on there's not a lot you can do with him", Gibbons said. Starting around that time past year, Francisco Lindor began to cut his teeth, hitting.346 from August 1 on, and.301 this season. Jose Bautista hit for a better average against curveballs than fastballs (.279 versus.229), but his slugging percentage and isolated power on curves are markedly lower.
