I watched the entire game one of the ALCS last night with friends. I like the Indians enough – although I’m in disbelief how they’re doing this. And I really like Francisco Lindor, whose two-run home run last night was the only scoring in the entire game.
And as an Indians fan, what more can you really ask for? They have it made right now. Their best player homered on a perfect fall night at home to open up the League Championship Series and get them a win with their ace on the bump.
For all Cleveland fans have been through, they have it pretty good right now.
And I have to say, through four games in the playoffs; I am still waiting on the team that faces the Indians to get the big hit. It’s just not happening, it seems.
Corey Kluber gave them six-plus of shutout baseball, and then passed the baton to a dominant Andrew Miller. Cody Allen took over in the ninth to retire Toronto without a hiccup.
I would be totally fine with the Indians getting to the World Series. At this point, that’s the only way I’ll get to attend a World Series game live with the way the Reds are going.
