Tribe Splits Doubleheader With The Blue Jays

By Jason Miller

(Cleveland)  --  The Indians split a doubleheader with the Blue Jays at Progressive Field.  Cleveland lost the opener 13-11 in 11 innings then crushed Toronto 13-4 in the nightcap.  

It was a monster day for Francisco Lindor, who went a combined 5-for-12 with two homers, six RBI and three runs scored in the two games.  The Indians are 17-and-14.

Friday night, it'll be a rematch of the ALDS.  The Indians and Yankees open a three-game series in the Bronx.  Cleveland was eliminated by New York last season after taking a 2-0 lead and losing the final three games.  

The Yanks have won 12-of-13 to improve to 21-and-10.  The Indians are three-and-a-half games ahead of the Tigers for first in the AL Central.  

Josh Tomlin starts for Cleveland opposite CC Sabathia.  First pitch at 7:05.  You can hear the game on WTAM 1100 and 100.7 WMMS.
