Joe Girardi: "I screwed up" by not challenging HBP call


The on-field ruling was that Cleveland Indians outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall was hit by a pitch with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, which loaded the bases, and the next batter, Francisco Lindor, hit a grand slam off Yankees reliever Chad Green to cut the Yankees' lead from five runs to one. He joined me to discuss C.C. Sabathia and the series as a whole. "They tell us we have 30 seconds".

"We don't have to name a starter three days from now", Francona said. He's such a good athlete, and I don't think people give him credit for that. "So I'm not really too concerned about it".

The designated hitter left game two of the American League Division Series after he sprained his right ankle. He is 9-5 with a 4.53 ERA in 19 postseason games (18 starts). They run. They've got power.

He added later: "I mean, how many times have you seen a player, say check, check, check, and it ends up being the call that they called?" That's just who I am. He allowed six runs total in six starts in September while presumably locking up the Cy Young Award.

A grand slam by Francisco Lindor in the bottom of the sixth inning cut the NY lead to 8-7, a solo shot to left by Jay Bruce in the eighth tied it, and a single by Yan Gomes in the bottom of the 13th driving in Austin Jackson finished it.

Sonny Grey (0-1) didn't make it out of the fourth, surrendering three runs on three hits and four walks through three and a-third innings.

Again facing rapid-fire questions about his decisions the night before that backfired, one in particular revolving around not challenging a critical hit-by-pitch call in the sixth inning, Joe Girardi didn't pass the buck.

"I screwed up", Girardi said Saturday at Yankee Stadium with his team on the verge of elimination.
