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

"I screwed up", the besieged Yankees manager said Saturday afternoon.

The Yankees now need to win three straight against a team that has won 35 of its last 39 games.

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.

The chemist said laboratory tests also detected VX acid, a degraded product of the nerve agent, on Aisyah's sleeveless T-shirt. The order came after Raja told the court the VX might still be active and it would be safer to view samples in the lab.

Cleveland holds a 2-0 series advantage over the Yankees with Game 3 scheduled for Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

But it should never have come to this. Chisenhall didn't even flinch, but Iassogna ruled that pitch brushed his hand and awarded him first base to load the bases. After digging themselves into an 8-3 deficit, Cleveland rallied to win the game 9-8 in the 13 inning.

Sanchez immediately said the ball had hit the knob of Chisenhall's bat.

The company deployed balloons to Peru earlier this year after flooding destroyed homes and displaced thousands of people in that country.

However, it was called by the plate umpire as a hit-by-pitch and they are reviewable. The replay looked as if the ball may have missed Chisenhall's hands and actually struck the butt of his bat, but Girardi elected not to challenge, setting the stage for a Francisco Lindor grand slam that cut the deficit to one.

However, Sanchez was calling out to have the call replayed from the moment it happened, so that in and of itself, should have told the Yankees skipper something was wrong.

Sabathia's final stat line: 5.1 innings, three hits, four runs, two earned, three walks, five strikeouts. He is going against one of the best postseason managers in Terry Francona in this series. "I'm excited for him because a year ago he missed out". Austin Jackson will start in left field against NY left-hander CC Sabathia, and Yan Gomes will catch Kluber. Trevor Bauer pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings to anchor a 4-0 Indians victory in Game 1. Jay Bruce tied the game two innings later off David Robertson. Green, this team's most reliable reliever for most of the season, gave up a two-out double to Indians catcher Yan Gomes.
