It was a beautiful night for baseball in Cleveland, Ohio. Especially with Corey Kluber starting game-1 in the ALCS. Kluber didn't disappoint, he had some scary moments but always managed to work his way out of a jam.
The Toronto Blue Jays and their powerful offense were held scoreless, and even when they had 2-guys reach base in the first 3 innings, Corey Kluber was able to walk off the field, not allowing a run to score.
He did an amazing job, and when Terry Francona made thew switch and brought in his reliever Andrew Miller, the quality of the Indians pitching stayed the same. Miller was able to strike out 5 of the 6 guys he faced. He did a great job making the Blue Jay powerful offense look like nothing.
But it was the Indians short-stop Francisco Lindo that took the spot-light. It was in the 6th inning, after Jason Kipnis walked that Lindo launched a hoe run ball over the fence in right-field (413ft.) to put the Indians on top 2-0.
What can we say about this kid that hasn't been said already. Lindo is a star in the making, and at only 22-years-old he can probably only get better. Think about how good he is already. It's frightening to think he can only get better.
