Cleve­land is a cut above: In­di­ans go up 3-0 on Jays

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Cleve­land starter Trevor Bauer and his in­jured finger couldn’t make it through the first in­ning Mon­day night. That didn’t stop the In­di­ans from mov­ing within one win of their first pen­nant since 1997.

Bauer was re­moved from Game 3 of the Amer­i­can League Cham­pi­onship Series af­ter blood be­gan drip­ping from his right pinkie, which the right-han­der cut on a drone last week, forc­ing him to miss Game 2. No prob­lem. Six Cleve­land re­liev­ers com­bined for 25 outs and held the host Toronto Blue Jays to just five hits, Ja­son Kip­nis hit a go-ahead home run in the sixth in­ning and the In­di­ans won, 4-2, for a 3-0 series lead.
