    Cleveland must learn to wear yet another postseason collapse

    CLEVELAND How will the Cleveland Indians wear this postseason failure?The cheers broke out in the eighth inning after Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner’s RBI single, which led to https://www.astrosedges.com/houston-astros/yuli-gurriel-jersey a second run on an errorand spelled out the inevitable as New York extended its lead to three. »Let’s go Yankees! Let’s go Yankees! »MORE: Yankees are 10th team to overcome 0-2 deficit in a best-of-fiveThe boos rained down, but at that point the Indians had no choice but to wear it as they lost5-2 to theYankees on Wednesdayin the decisive Game 5 of the ALDS at Progre sive Field. »It’s disappointing, » Indians manager Terry Francona said. « We felt good about ourselves. We came down the stretch playing good baseball, and we did some things in this series that I don’t think were characteristic of our team. »It didn’t seem po sible five nights earlier, when Cleveland took command of the series by erasing a five-run deficit and winning a 13-inning thriller. New York took the next two at home, Didi Gregorius hit two clutch homers, and, well, sometimes that’s how postseason baseball works.But this wasn’t supposed to happen to the Indians.Not after winning 102 regular-season games with a record-setting 22-game win streak.Notafter blowing a 3-1 lead in the 2016 World Series to the Chicago Cubs.Not after going up2-0 in thisseries.Not with a championship drought that extends all the way to 1948.Not with that narrative about a 3-17 record since 1999 in games that came with an opportunity to clinch a series.Yes, Cleveland will wear it all the way into 2018, no matter what the preseason prognostications say. There are no excuses here.MORE: Didi Gregorius etches his name into postseason loreIt wasn’t the strike zone, though that didn’t help. Both teams struck out a lot. CC Sabathia out-dueled Corey Kluber. The same Sabathia who won the AL Cy Young for Cleveland in 2007 returned like so many others and haunted his former team.By the time Sabathia struck out Edwin Encarnacion looking to end the fourth inning, New York had a 3-0 lead. Sabathia bobbed his head walking off the mound. Edwin Encarnacion jawed with home plate umpire Jeff Nelson. The inevitable was coming.The strike zone was liberal, but again not an excuse. New York pitchers had 15 strikeouts in the game, and Sabathia finished with nine. Cleveland pitchers had 16 Ks in the game. It was a hit-or-mi s affair, and the Indians’ hitters mi sed. Cleveland’s top four of Francisco Lindor, Jason Kipnis, Jose Ramirez andEncarnacion finished 1-for-15with onewalk.Meanwhile, the Yankees were ready. »We never feel like we are out of it, » Sabathia said. « We feel like we can play with anybody. We showed that tonight. »Kluber also mi sed for the second time in the series. He allowed those two homers to Gregorius and Carlos Lee Jersey lasted just 3 2/3innings. Cleveland cut the lead to 3-2, but a double play ended that threat. There would be no game-tying home run against Aroldis Chapman this time. »Nobody wanted the season to be over, » Francona said. « It doesn’t wind down. It comes to a crashing halt. And nobody, including myself, was ready for it to be over. »That’s the same movie twice in arow after losing in seven games to the Cubs in last year’sWorld Series, and everybody in Cleveland knows the rest about that tortured https://www.astrosedges.com/houston-astros/hector-rondon-jersey history that includes mi ses in the World Series in 1954, 1995 and 1997. And that streak since 1999 includes blowing a 2-0 lead to Boston in the 1999 ALDS, a 2-1 lead to Seattle in the 2001 ALDS and a 3-1 lead to Boston in the 2007 ALCS.That New York starred in this is the scariest part. It should be. The Yankees could intercept the Indians momentum, just like they did in the 1990s. While the Indians lost those World Series in ’95 and ’97,New York piled up championships in 1996 and three more from 1998 to2000.MORE: Yankees-Indians box score, game summaryThe Yankees got it done. The Indians didn’t.Cleveland will still have a loaded team next year. Kluber should be coming off winning theAL Cy Young, and that top four highlights a loaded lineup. The Indians will be right back in the mix for another AL Central title. That conversation is a long way off, however.In the moment, this one hurts and it should. »Whatever you say isn’t going to make anybody feel better tonight, » Francona said. « But we win together and we lost together. »They’ll wear it together, too. How they respond will be the interesting part.
